Haunted Hotels for Halloween


Halloween is here again, the night when ghosts and other beings roam the Earth while people dress up and head from house to house in search of candy. In some places, ghosts never leave: plenty of castles, hotels and inns claim to have their own ghosts. If you ever wanted to stay at a haunted hotel, now is the ideal chance to do it.

Langham Hotel (London, UK)
Located in the center of London, this grand hotel is renown for its services and for its ghosts. Some famous names, including Mark Twain and Oscar Wilde, have stayed at this hotel together with the ghost of a German prince who fell to his death from one of the hotel windows. Another visitor who never left the hotel is a mysterious man dressed in Victorian attire. Guests who stayed in room 333 claim to have seen floating orbs and non-corporeal entities floating over them, and more than one guest has fled to the safety of other rooms.

Castle Stuart (Inverness, Scotland)
This ancient castle was turned into a hotel... and the ghosts who haunted the castle decided to stay there. The East Tower is known for its ghostly sightings, which include a variety of spirits.  But I love the one which I stayed here in Edinburgh, very comfortable and nice!

Stanley hotel (Colorado, USA)
This palatial hotel can be found near the mountains of the state of Colorado. This hotel is one of the most popular places for those who want to see a ghost: there have been sightings of the hotel owner and his wife, several housekeepers and a variety of unknown spirits floating around the hotel. One of the most famous visitors was Stephen King, who, after a creepy stay in room 217 wrote The Shining. The banquet hall is a notorious haunted spot, where a musically-inclined ghost plays the piano. Steps of running children can be heard on one of the upper floors, and there have been reports of moving objects in room 418,

Hotel Chelsea (NY, USA)
Findingaccommodation in NY is not easy... and some hotels come with their very own ghost stories! Celebrities once flocked to this red brick building, crowned by a neon sign in NY. Some famous names on the guest list include Jackson Pollock, Madonna and Leonard Cohen. Some guests decided not to leave: room 206 is still haunted by Dylan Thomas, an author who died there. The elevator and one of the halls are common areas where the spirits of Sid Vicious and his girlfriend Nancy, whom the bassist allegedly assassinated before his own overdose, can be seen.

Gettysburg Hotel (Pennsylvania, USA)
This creepy mansion used to be an inn... and some people who used to frequent the inn decided to stay there. Guests have claimed that several wounded soldiers and the ghost of a young girl who died during the Civil War can be seen wandering around.

Russell Hotel (Sydney, Australia)
This hotel is located in The Rocks, a neighbourhood in Sydney. It location close to the docks means that previously, it was the place where sailors went for some nightly entertainment... and now the hotel houses several ghosts of crime members, ladies of the night and sailors.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
