Old Lady Feather-Dusting Late at Night

Pekiling Flats also known as Tun Abdul Rahman Flats, consists of 11 blocks of flats (Blocks A to Blocks L) were located on Jalan Pekililing (now Jalan Tun Razak) and Jalan Pahang in Kuala Lumpur. This is the second largest units to be built in Malaysia. This is home to Lenny Tay and his family for over 17 years. Lenny lives in Block C on the 15th floor and adjacent to Block A which faces each other.

Lenny have faced many unusual and strange encounters but one of the experience occur when he was studying very late one night when it was over, he went to take a cold shower at 3 am. After his shower he went to make a cup of hot “Milo” and he went to the balcony to relax and just “chill out” before going to bed. He thought that his father who was a taxi driver will be going to work in a few hours’ time.

After casually looking at the night scenery, he noticed that on the 14th floor at the opposite block (Block A), there was an old lady who was busy using a feather-dusting doing housework but very slowly and Lenny was quite amused and surprised that someone will be doing housework at that late hour at night. He felt sad as maybe other people might not be able to sleep instead they kept busy with housework, maybe that why the old lady was working so slowly.

The old lady suddenly seemed to realize that Lenny was looking at her and she smiled at him. Taken aback, Lenny quickly return her smile and in a flash that old lady has zoomed crossing the 20 feet (6 meters) between the flats and to the back of Lenny’s balcony. Lenny was so taken aback and terrified that he felt on his backside trying to struggling back from the balcony.

Lenny’s mother came rushing to Lenny’s aid asking what was going on. Lenny turned to look at his mother, but was temporarily speechless and hurriedly looked back at the old lady, but she has disappeared! The next day, Lenny’s mother confided that she has seen the old lady doing housework at nights but only twice. She also said that she about 9 years ago an old lady was abandoned and left to fend for herself after his son and daughter-in-law because of financial problems left to work in another state.
