Protect yourself from "special visitors" in Hotel

Every single hotel, there shall be at least a permanent room which should be left vacant at all times. No matter how full the hotel is, they are not to sell that room(s) to any guest. It is said that the special room was "reserved" for those "special visitors".

So, if you plan to stay in some hotel, always book in advance. Try to avoid walk in. If the receptionist told you there's no more room available, do not insist one anymore or try to bribe them to give you a room. If you do that, most of the time the room you have will be that "special room".

Sometimes those "special visitors" might go to other rooms also, so here's tips on how to protect yourself:
- Before entering your room, always knock on the door first, even you know the room is vacant.
- After you enter the room, if you feel very cold suddenly and have "chicken spores", leave the room quietly immediately and go to reception to request to change room. Most of the time the receptionist will understand what's happening.
- After you enter the room, immediately switch on all of the lights, and open the curtain to let the sun light in.
- Before you go to bed, arrange your shoes so that one of them is upside down. Some say this is representing yin & yang to protect you while you're asleep.
- Always leave at least a lamp on while you're sleeping, preferably the lamp in the toilet.
- If you're staying alone and they have given you a twin bed, do not sleep with the other bed vacant, try to put your things like luggage on the other bed before you sleep.

I had heard a lot rumours regarding this matter. There is no right or wrong for this type of things. You may choose to not believing it. Somehow, you won't loss anything even if you did try it.
I guess this is quite a nice article as all the tips are exactly the same as the rumour I had heard. Even one of my uncle whose friend owned a hotel told him the same thing. Without this "special visitor" in the hotel, the hotel won't be "stable". Unfortunate things might happen if they did not worship them.
However, these are just one of the beliefs. Believe it or not, it's actually up to you.
