Ward off "Special Visitors" in the Hotel

Often as we may heard, hotel usually reserves one or more rooms for those "special visitors" aka GHOST or SPIRITs or whatever you called it.. I don't know how to it is but I often hear that every single hotel should have 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..

That's why never insist for a room when the receptionist told you that there's no more vacant room available.. Don't even think of bribing them to do so.. If you do that, you'll most probably get yourself in trouble for sharing the same room with the "special visitors".. Spooky?! Well, I believed it happened though..

I think this is just the right time to spread the words as most of the people out there are having their term or semester break and enjoying the family outings..

You may had received these tips before in your forwarded mail but this is to share for those who had not received this before.. Sometimes those "special visitors" might go to other rooms also, so here's some 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 felt very cold suddenly and have "chicken spore", leave the room quietly and immediately and go to the reception to request for a change of 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 draw the curtains 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 toilet's lamp.

- If you're staying alone and they have give 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.

P/S: I hold no responsibility if these tips do not work on you.. and if you do not believe it, you may always use the tips another way round to see how true it is.. Do drop more tips if you have some more to share with others..
