There is a pre-war house situated along Macalister Road, Penang. Next to a mosque in the city’s prime area, it is still being occupied by several poor families.
Some years back, a local daily reported some unexplained phenomena happening in that house. After midnight, all bizarre things will happen. The daily showed pictures of wet towels being lit up in fire, eggs seen dropping from the ceiling and clothes in buckets of water lit up as if they were soaked in kerosene.
Residents also report cases of waking up in the morning to find their bicycles on the top floor and clothes in the bucket all hanged up on the lines. Nobody, however, claimed to have seen any ghost around the decaying building. A resident claimed that all these strange activities would stop once the morning prayer from the mosque next door started.
