Haunted Ria Apartment
So I have people asking me about my experience at Ria Apartments with the Genting gang. You can read about that here
. I did mention I was gonna write about it but I was a bit scared to write about it at night. Heh
Well, it’s 11.31 a.m. now and I shall tell the story.
We stayed at Ria Apartments at Genting for a night, not really knowing that Ria Apartments were haunted as heck and not expecting an eerie stay of course. Once we checked into the apartment, I felt creeped out as I stepped out of the lift, seeing eerie looking corridors and etc. At least our apartment looked fairly alright in the day as there was light. Still, me and a few others felt quite uneasy at the apartment itself and the group decided to not hang around much in the apartment while we were at Genting.
After coming back from the theme park and Ben using the bathroom, me being a neurotic hygiene freak insisted on washing my face at the kitchen, as there was a sink anyway. I was a bit scared to go alone, so I called Charmaine with me. It was around 7.45 pm.
The kitchen felt somewhat colder than the other rooms in the apartment. Ignoring that, I quickly took off my glasses and washed my face in the sink. There was a huge window right in front of the sink, the leads to outside of the apartment, I think but it was dark outside.. probably an empty apartment corridor.
After rinsing my face, I saw some movement outside the window, looked like a shadow that flew quite fast. Super freaked out. But did not say anything, with my face still wet, I grabbed my glasses and dragged Charmaine out of the kitchen with me.
I decided to forget about the incident, since I didn’t want to creep myself and the rest out as we were staying the night at the apartment.
After dinner and our crazy dance night at The Patio, we were all rowdy and noisy when we were back. Somehow, we all did not want to sleep just yet. For some of us, (like me), we weren’t too comfortable to sleep in the apartment. So I’d rather tire myself out so I can just K.O on the bed till morning.
The weird thing about the apartment is that you feel as though you are being watched. I thought I was the only one feeling as paranoid as this but to my surprise, the rest mentioned the same thing.
Another creepy incident was as Ben was taking a shower in the bathroom, he felt like he was being watched by more than one person. Especially at the window (bathroom had a super huge window, dunno why) and mirror. Although that did not explain much, but he had experienced ‘things’ before, so I believed him. Our apartment had quite 2 distinctively eerie paintings which sent chills down my spine when I walked past it. The unit also had around 5 little dolls underneath the TV at the living area. I really did not like those dolls.
So when we were playing cards, talking and laughing, we did feel as though we were being watched and at one point, all of us suddenly fell silent and stopped making noises. Then, we went to bed. Or at least tried.
I had such a hard time sleeping because I kept hearing alot of people whispering and talking in the living room, as if a group of people were having a yumcha session.
And I knew there wasn’t anyone there. So, I forced myself to sleep anyway.
In the morning at 7am, Daniel went to take a shower. Then he heard a soft knock on the bathroom door about 2 times. Thinking it was one of us, he finished and came out of the bathroom.. and found all of us dead asleep.
So who knocked?
We all only dared to speak about all of these AFTER we checked out of Ria Apartments… We did suspect that we somehow ‘attracted’ spirits when we made alot of noises at night. Plus, it was the first day of the Hungry Ghost Festival. Hence, it might have explained some ‘things’. We were all quite surprised at each other’s “experiences” and felt somehow relieved that we were not crazy or paranoid.
I’m never staying at Ria Apartments anymore. It was so good to be home! The morning after, I googled Ria Apartments and to my horror found a string of haunted experiences of peoples’ stay at Ria Apartments. Some were worse than ours. Anyway, here are some of the links.
Definitely had chills run down my spine while writing this post and recalling what had happened.
Well, Genting Highlands is definitely notorious for hauntings because of gamblers committing suicide, from what I’ve been told. So there you go, gambler ghosts. I had encountered a creepier incident at First World Hotel, two years back.
I never believed it when people say they’ve seen spirits or people without a face.
I was proven so wrong when I stayed at First World Hotel with my girlfriends two years ago. When we were walking back to our hotel room, I had an uneasy feeling. As we were all girls and had money on us, I feared us getting mugged cos it was 3am. Then I heard someone walking behind us, turned around and saw an old man. Which was cool, cos he turned to the left to the lifts. But behind him was a lady, who looked like a hotel receptionist. She was walking really fast as if in a hurry. And I noticed that… she had no face.
Making sure I was not imagining things, I turned behind again, she was gone.
That totally answered my question to whether it was a real lady or not.
