To be honest, it wasn’t as creepy as I thought it would be. In fact, it reminds me of a religious 3am trip to Lim Chu Kang cemetry lots of years back… Far from eerie, the cemeteries at wee hours always seems to be full of “life”! Instead of feeling isolated or unwelcome, I tend to feel a kinda warmth surrounding me. The atmosphere was more to serene and peace than anything.
For those that are planning to go, be forewarn though that it is definitely a heart- pounding trip. Nope, not the definite meeting of our friends from the nether world, but more to the jungle trashing that is needed to reach the famous tombs that are covered with overgrowth. My ghost hunting trip literally becomes a workout trip! I’m feeling slimmer already! LOL!
Too bad the lighting is bad for photos… So no pics to show.
Strange as it seems, right after we visited the last tomb of the night, it suddenly started to rain super heavily!! There wasn’t even a warning of a drizzle of any kind! Even though Mr Charles (the tour guide cum founder of API) was commenting that the deads are trying to chase us home, I felt as though the refreshing rain symbolises a fond farewell that says: “nice to meet you!”
Haha… Really exciting to experience rain in the middle of a jungle setting. You hear the rain much earlier than you can feel it coz the trees above you gotta have their “drink” first! Something that everyone should try at least once in a lifetime.
A summary of what fascinates me:
· The trio bunch of furry chubby puppies that greeted us at House of the Dead. I am soooooo tempted to bring one home!!
· The sighting of the BIGGEST tomb in Singapore (possibly even Asia!)
· Witnessing the various Superstar tombs such as the brother of Tan Tock Seng, Boon Lay, Nee Soon, Chong Pang (Yup, they were all once living human!!)
· The unexpected revitalizing rain that will make me remember this wonderful night even more fondly…
