Wise Hotel Tips
I think I'll throw in another naughty piece for this holiday season as so many visitors are traveling and putting up in hotels.
This extract is from Miri's great Community Net's blog. I guess it'll be a great idea to borrow something from my many buddies there. It's titled Ghost Protection in Hotel.
Just two days ago I was escorting an old buddy and her daughter with all their luggage to a hotel room. They'll be holed up there for a number of weeks... so this piece today will be sound advice for them! Haha... D & S ...Beware!
Ghost Protection in Hotel
My friend who works in a hotel sent me an email, please read.
----->Believe it or not
In 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 special room is 'reserved' for those 'special visitors'.
So, if you plan to stay in some hotel, always book in advance. Try to avoid a walk-in. If the receptionist tells you there's no more room available, do not insist on one anymore or try to bribe him or her 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 some tips on how to protect yourself:
- Before entering your room, always knock on the door first, even if 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 and immediately and go to the receptionist 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 sunlight 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 lamp.
- 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.
p/s I was told that there was a recent exorcism performed at a well-known hotel not
too long ago and I know it's true ...
