    I am not really scared of ghosts, but something happened to me a few months ago. I was at

    home, alone, watching television one night. It was one of those horrible, stormy nights with wind and

    rain lashing against the windows. My parents and siblings were at the cinema.

    After a while, I heard a tapping sound. I did not worry at first. There were trees near the

    windows and I thought it was the trees hitting against them.

    I ignored the sound. Then, I heard a bang at the front door. It must be the wind, I thought.

    Then, I heard a noise I could not ignore. It was a horrible cry - it was like someone being strangled. I

    jumped. I was frightened by then.

    Then it came again. "Graaahhh!"

    "Is there a madman going around the house, trying to get in?"

    I prayed that all the doors and windows were shut properly. I started moving around to check

    them. Just then, I heard the tapping. I started dialing for the police.

    Suddenly, the front door burst opened and in came my siblings shouting, April Fool!

    April Fool!

    I could have strangled them - I nearly did.

    Lifes Brief Candle

    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,Creeps in this petty pace from day to day

    To the last syllable of recorded time,And all our yesterdays have lighted foolsThe way to a dusty death. Out, out brief candle!Lifes but a walking shadow, a poor player,That trusts and frets his hour upon the stage,And then is heard no more: it is a taleTold by an idiot, full of sound and furySignifying nothing.

    They were generally ordering the men about, Clean the kawahs!, Buy this!, Fix the

    curtains!, Mop the floor!, Erect the tents! etc. etc. Jamal suddenly felt that these

    Kelantanese ladies were really bossy and strident in their ways. He remembered how gentle

    his sister was before she married, but after that, wow! His poor brother-in-law couldnt get a

    word in edgewise. He could not, however, imagine his sweet, demure, little darling would

    ever be like that.
