Halloween Chills With A Bewitching Waitress


An illustration of what the waitress looks like, a petite mix of Indonesian and Chinese. She was of course dressed in a more simple outfit.

Article, a re-post from 31.10.2018.

Devil Woman by both Cliff Richard and Johnny Lion are different songs but with the same title. I had featured both songs in a Hungry Ghost Month and a Halloween posting earlier on this blog. 

Since Halloween is around the corner, let me relate this story that discusses a very pretty waitress in an Indonesian restaurant in Singapore. She is beautiful, especially with her bewitching looks.


This particular Indonesian restaurant has dishes that are authentic and an atmosphere that is cordial. The food is similar to what my mother used to cook at home when I was a child, a treat of home food.

I was with my wife and a lady waitress came to serve us. This one was a stunner!  She had porcelain skin and quality features, with remarkably high cheekbones, definitely a photographer's delight.

Surprised by her stunning beauty my wife got into a conversation after complimenting that her face was flawless. She beamed with delight. She also had a petite nose, "Hidung macung..." (sharp nose) when we both described her. Tall and slim she would fit any modelling agency's resume.


But her most unique feature was her eyes. They looked pearly and sea green and seemed to shine under the dim restaurant lights that evening. But there was something different about them.


We placed our orders and in the midst of eating, she came to our table and told us that she was of mixed parentage. I honestly forgot the racial combination, extremely exquisite to remember. Very interesting.

She was multi-lingual too and we heard samplings of the languages she could speak; she rattled off in Dutch, French, Spanish, Chinese, some dialects, Indonesian and bits and pieces of other languages. My wife and I were both fascinated.

Since the restaurant was not busy that evening, my wife asked how she managed her beautiful self. Her answer. in delightful Indonesian:


"I drink a jug of water every night before bed and I believe the water cleanses the toxins in my body."


But her beauty was not the actual attraction because what she told us surprised us that Halloween season. 

She explained that she practised meditation very seriously; this regime helped her maintain her beauty and physical fitness. She went on to explain that she was able to "distinguish the good and evil spirits that come before me when I meditate. They appear like images out of a book."

She was able to manage these spirits and send the negative ones away. She was also able to see dead people as some of them would walk around her sometimes. Shades of Bruce Willis, black magic and sorcery! She could tell the future, read your palms and quietly whispered in my ears, "Seduce you!"


A clairvoyant! OK! My wife was taken aback by her tale and behaviour and was becoming a little concerned but the waitress carried on to explain her supernatural abilities:


"Dead bodies should not be cremated because they can feel the pain. Burial is best," she concluded. The piece of rendang (Indonesian beef dish) in my mouth seemed to have melted down my throat. I swallowed hard.


"I know!" she looked at us with her darting eyes. "I can hear them scream when I go to the Mandai Crematorium to watch them burn."

Strange that she was standing beside us all the time, while the other waitresses were busy with their chores. My wife and I could feel the chill of the air-conditioning.

"I have an aunt in Bali," she carried on, "and I have helped her get rid of a persistent troublemaker in her large bungalow in the suburbs. It was a JIN (an imp)." Apparently, the JIN came back when she was not around.  People in her kampong (village) laughed at her in disbelief when she told her stories. They said that she was a mental case, that she's GILA (crazy). 


When we left the restaurant we thanked her for her stories and gave her a small tip. She thanked us too with much gratefulness and enthusiasm. As we left everyone looked our way as she had an aura about her. To have left was a relief for us.


The next time we came round again, the head waiter told us she had already left. Why? The boss didn't like that she talked too much. According to a new head-waiter, she had troubled some customers.


I forgot to ask her name. 

Happy Halloween 2021 everyone!👿

An apposite quote. Believe all these paranormal activities or images are imagined. It's just our conscience playing tricks on or pricking us.

Hi Andy,

A very interesting tale your Halloween story.
According to her chat, this stunning waitress has quite a few supernatural powers. I wonder if she has the power to get rid of all those "ghosts, spirits and devils" in our midst today? :-)
Just joshing brother Andy.

A very true quote from my late Dad: be wary of the living ghosts. They can harm you. The dead ones won't harm you.

Happy Halloween, my abang.

It has all the ingredients of a good story. Interesting.

I'm better at analysing data. Not so at humans. Even less so at the female species.

Women whose beauty and ability are out of this world usually do not have an easy earthly life. Statistics are stacked against them.
They tend to straddle across the real and unreal world, the seen and unseen, the physical and spiritual realms. Male mortals are held spellbound. Songs are sung about them. Poems are written about them. They are part of the celestial galaxies. One moment you see them, the next moment they are gone. That one moment can fill you with mixed lingering emotions: delight and frustration.

Your encounter is really very mysterious one...
Sometimes could be very worrying!

Andy Young
Freda Hanum, it was.
We wouldn't have believed her story if we didn't meet her in person, serving us.
She had beautiful but strange looking eyes.
And she spoke very convincingly...
THANKS

it was an interesting encounter which we never imagined.
Yes, it was scary, come to think of it.
We came back but told she had been dismissed because
they found her too chatty... [too chatty, oh].

THANKS for sharing your feelings.

Yes, I would too.
