#19 - Confessions of a Tangki (Taoist Medium)
People view Taoist mediums with both fear and reverence. Taoist rituals involving underworld gods can be shocking for the modern folks whose idea of religious practices are peaceful and subdued.   When the deities take over the medium's body, they usually converse in ancient dialect and can appear to be rather hostile in their mannerism. In Chinese mythology, Hei Bai Wu Chang 黑白無常 are two deities who dress in black and white respectively and in charge of escorting the spirits of the dead to the ruler of Underworld. Depending on the person it encounters, the Hei Bai Wu Chang can appear as either a benevolent deity who rewards the person for doing good deeds or a malevolent deity who punishes the person for committing evil. Locally, they are also referred to as Tua Li Ya Pek or Dua Di Ah Pek, which means "Big and Second Brother".  Ken (not his real name) talks openly about how being a Tangki has affected his relationships and how he tried to reject the calling but there was simply no escaping heaven's will.   Ken have requested to remain anonymous for this interview.

#8 - Don't Go Swimming During Hungry Ghost Month
 “Don’t step on joss paper”, “come home early”, “don’t go swimming”, “say excuse me”. My grandparents and parents would remind me of this every time hungry ghost festival comes round.  I have no recollection of this, but apparently this tale I’m about to tell made me quite the legend amongst my neighbors. I was 12 years old and living at Blk 627 Bedok Reservoir Road.  Back in those days, the kampong spirit was strong with the community. Different families would take turns to organize an outing for the neighbourhood kids. One of these outing was a BBQ at East Coast Park, and as you might as guessed, this took place around the 7 month hungry ghost festival. It was around 5pm, I remember. While the adults were setting up the pit, the children were on the beach, being children. Being the gung ho one of the lot, I always had to have a one up on the rest of the kids. So when someone kicked the cheapo plastic ball into the sea, I was the first to swim out to get it.  The more I swam, the further the ball went, until my feet were no longer touching the sand, and you could feel the difference in water temperature. That’s when I felt the cold wrapped around my ankle and tugged me downwards. Gently at first, as if my foot got trapped in a floating plastic bag. I started to get a little uneasy and wanted to swim back. But then the grip tightened and started pulling me downwards. I had the chance to take one full breath before my head went under. I reached down to untangle whatever it is that was pulling me and I felt fingers around my ankle. Close your eyes now and run your fingers over the back of your other hand, and observe how it feels. Distinct knuckles and fingers.  That’s what it felt like. Except it was slimy. I screamed on instinct but water only filled my lungs even faster. I didn’t know how long I was in the water or which way was the surface anymore. The salt water stung my eyes. I just thrashed around blindly.   * About Supernatural Confessions Podcast: Visit: www.supernaturalconfessions.com I spent two years battling the supernatural and almost lost my life in the process. During that time, I was dragged into a world people don't talk about. These are the stuff you don't find detailed online because people with real stories don't share it with the world. We deal with it internally and try to rationalise the weird things until they fade from memory. This channel is a way for me and others like me to talk about our experiences to find closure. This is also for those looking for answers because talking about their encounters in public will just get them ridiculed.

#5 - Firefighter Shawn Khan in the Case of the Bodysnatcher
We all have our fair share of ghost stories during our national service days, but most of these were tales past down by oral tradition. Very few of us can actually lay claim to having had a first hand encounter with the paranormal. [note: If you did, we want to talk to you!]  Shawn Khan was a firefighter in the Civil Defence Force and for his graduation test, he had to go into a building called the Furnace to simulate a rescue mission. Instead of people, he had to rescue lifelike mannequins that were designed to look as realistically human as possible. At around 4am, something strange happened to him. He went missing and no one could locate him. His partner, who was the only with him in that room, claimed that Shaun was dragged away and simply...disappeared.  * About Supernatural Confessions Podcast: Visit: www.supernaturalconfessions.com I spent two years battling the supernatural and almost lost my life in the process.

#4 - Actor Chris Bucko's Ghostly Encounter in a Rented Room in Clementi
 The very talented actor Chris Buckon shares two supernatural experiences in his life. One in which he was saved from a near fatal accident and the other was a ghostly encounter in a rented HDB room in Clementi.  We sat on a stone curb at the top of Pearl's Hill,  in the dark lit only by the glow of old fashioned park lamps. I sensed a few spiritual entities crowding around us, curious. I broke into cold sweat, and Bucko's hair stood on ends. The sound of distant mid town traffic provided some form of comfort.   * About Supernatural Confessions Podcast: Visit: www.supernaturalconfessions.com I spent two years battling the supernatural and almost lost my life in the process.
