A Puff Of Air on 2017-06-19

This happened when I was 15 or 16 when I was living in an old boarding house with my mother. We rented a room on the second floor. The first floor was one big square room where the kitchen, living room and dining were at. The boarding house was old and creaky. There were dark corners in the house th...

A Big Bump In The Night on 2017-06-08

This happened when I was 16 years old while I was still living in Davao City with my mom. Due to insufficient financial resources, we rented a room in an old boarding house. I wouldn't say that the location was rural because we were living in the city. The boarding house was a walking distance from ...

All I can say is - you've made the right decision not to open the door!

Hello Zaruje,

Thanks for reading my story! I don't have any proof that the thing was an aswang or otherwise so any opinion is welcome. Although I would have preferred that it was just a lost "kagwang" (flying lemur in my dialect) than an aswang or a thief because the latter two are more dangerous.

Hi L_Melb,

Thank your for sharing. Interesting that we have almost the same experience. I don't remember asking for a sign from a guardian or spirit though. It was really weird for me too.

Hi Melda,

Yes I noticed that Hommie has not replied yet on all comments in all his posts. I read all his posts and I must say that his life is very exciting. I hope he replies soon.

About your friend saying that there were 7 of you - didn't he know that there were only 6 of you in that trip? I mean, you've been on that trip for more than a day already and I assume that he would have known that there were only 6 of you right from the start.

Hi Biblio,

I meant flying lemurs, not flying squirrels.

Sorry for the confusion.

Hi Biblio,

I'm positive that it was not a cat. It was too loud and heavy to be a cat. I'm not sure if we have flying foxes in the philippines but we have flying lemurs and they can be huge too. I've seen one in a cage in Bohol. Thinking about it, it is possible that it might be a flying lemur as they have been mistaken as aswang (I googled it and yep, these shy creatures were mistaken to be aswangs because of their wings and claws) but the area is within the city and rather populated. From what I know, flying squirrels shy away from busy and populated areas.

But thank you! I haven't thought of the possibility that it could be a flying lemur. I sure hope it was just a flying lemur! =D

This is really creepy. I'm more creeped out if the entity or being is in the form of a child. I really don't know why but there's something about the little ones that pushes the scare level up.

Hi AzraelX and Macknorton,

Honestly, I have no idea up to now what it really was. We just heard rumors that it was an aswang. If it was a human jumping on our roof, he/she must be really huge and maybe carrying something sharp thus the metal-scrapping sound. We didn't check the roof though if there was any damage.

By the way, the house and the alleys surrounding it had some unexplained or strange occurrences too which I will share soon.

Hi! I've been to Sagada a year ago and we also went spelunking in the sumaguing ang lumiang caves, and watched the clouds and rain cover the sunrise at kiltepan peak (we were unfortunate to not witness the famous sunrise there). But fortunately we weren't followed by anything from the cave, except for the smell of bat poop. The locals didn't mention anything creepy except that someone died in the cave because he (she?) was dragged down by flood water while spelunking during a storm! The cave was full of noisy tourists actually so we didn't feel anything paranormal-scary.

We stayed in a big house, about a 5-min drive from the town center. It was a newly constructed house with many rooms. It could comfortably accommodate 20-30 people. We were only 8 that time at the house. It gave me some creepy vibes especially the upstairs bathroom with a window facing the woods.

So anyway, sagada has some creepy vibes because it's remote, surrounded by mountains and trees, not enough street lights, and the natives there had an interesting way of burying the dead - hanging coffins! Yes, coffins were hanged on the face of cliffs. Again, nothing followed us from the site of the hanging coffins.

Hi, I'm from the Philippines too and I've heard of some of these "small" diggings for buried Japanese treasure. These diggings are usually done in secret, meaning the government is not made aware of.

One that I heard of based on rumors was a dig for Japanese treasure beneath an old mansion. The team of diggers kept digging until they reached the level where there is water already (the location was surrounded by marsh lands years before urbanization). Based on the rumor mill, they did not find anything though.

But what's interesting is that the group of diggers hired a psychic or a spirit medium. There is a belief in the Philippines that these treasures were not only buried with booby traps but also guarded by some spirit or elemental. He was hired to help the group to maybe avoid angering whatever entity was guarding the treasure, if any.

But then again, they did not find anything, only mud. Maybe the spirits led them away from the treasure?
