Paranormal?

Do you believe in the paranormal? Does the very thought that they might exist scare the socks off you?

Well, I believe they do exist because the world is more than we can comprehend. And also because where there are forces of Good, there are always forces of Evil as well. Feel free to counter this :)

Anyway, what I wanted to write about is not whether they exist or not because we can banter on and on and no one can provide concrete proof. Not that I intentionally ask for it. I'm quite, quite happy with the philosophy, ''the well water does not disturb/bother the stream water'' (literally translated from a Chinese saying ''jing shui bu fan he shui''). So, if I don't disturb 'them', they will also leave me alone :)

Again, I digress. Sorry. Back to the story...

One night, I think about 2 weeks ago, 5 of us namely Mr. & Mrs. PPJay, Momo and Mr. & Mrs. Artsy went to a park in the vicinity of PPJay's house to play fireworks (it was still Chinese New Year). The park was quite well lit and there were some guys playing basketball on the other end of the park.

The girls had fun catching up while the guys were lighting the fireworks. Although the fireworks these days were not as bright and loud as those when I was a child, it was still better than nothing :P We stayed at the park until close to midnight and decided to adjourn to PPJay's house. While walking towards the car, Mr. PPJay told us that his parents used to stay around that area and how the Japanese used to kill and dispose of the victims' bodies on the train tracks behind the row of houses. Apparently there are ghost stories aplenty in that area...

As Mr. Artsy started the car, he also turned on the CD player. But as the song came to play, both Momo and me looked at each other. There seemed to be another layer of music amidst the existing one. Queer as it might be, both of us did not mutter a word. Then Mr. Artsy pressed the button to stop the player. He just did it abruptly without saying anything. The music that was on the player stopped. The music both Momo and I heard was still playing! And it sounded as if it came from the back of the car.

PPJay commented that the sound came from inside Momo's bag. Momo said she does not have this ringtone but took out her mobile to check anyhow. Nothing. But the music persisted. Never stopping. I checked mine too, although I don't have that music as well. Also nothing.

Momo and I looked at each other again, not daring to look behind us......

Then PPJay noticed light within Momo's bag.... "Look, got light inside your bag".... Momo looked again and .....

... the music got louder.....

.. the music and light came from.... another mobile phone! Belonging to her sister.... They both have exactly the same phone and according to Momo, this is the first time she ever accidentally grab her sister's phone.

Mystery solved :P

Well, the scary thing was the music refused to stop and kept playing while we were looking for the source. And it was the soft, classical kinda music.... Really set the mood, man...

What are the coincidences of a phone ringing (non-stop & foreign, mind you) in the middle of the night while your friend is telling you a ghost story?
