So I stumbled upon this website on Google and next thing I knew, I'm reading ghost stories from the Philippines.
The story that I'm about to tell you happened and told by my older sister. The events happened to her when she was a few months pregnant and was living in Quezon City at that time.
So it started out when my sister got a call from our mom giving her a warning over the upcoming week, my sister asked why and my mom said that she did a "Tawas" (I believe its where you melt candle wax and pour it on a bowl of water to see what is wrong with the person and then do a prayer.) Anyways, when my mom warned my sister, she said that when she did the tawas, the form of the candle wax came out to look like a shape of a bed with a foot underneath it (meaning a spirit will come by and visit). So my sister didn't understand what my mom meant when she explained it, so she just shrugged it off and went on with her life.
Then when the week came by, she was alone by herself at her apartment (Her place is like a bungalow type apartment.) So she called my cousin to spend the week with her, my cousin is a strong woman and well prepared to what is coming. So my sister went out to meet with my cousin to where she was getting dropped out. As she went my older brother came with as well as my Auntie Flore. Now to describe my aunt, all I can say is that she's skinny and bony to my opinion. Back to my story, this would be the mark of the first day that my cousin is staying over my sister's place. As they were entering the apartment and my sister was last to enter, this is the weird part; when she came in last she only notice that there were only two people (my older brother and my cousin). Then she asked: "oh hey where's Auntie Flore, wasn't she with you? I could have sworn she went inside first". Both my brother and my cousin looked at my sister weird and my brother said: "What are you talking about, we're the only ones who came." (So who was that woman who came in then, my mom did mention a spirit would come by to visit.) And so as the day goes by. My brother left my cousin to care for my sister.
The second day my cousin stayed there, it was morning and usually the apartments would get a newspaper delivered to their door. To start my sister's day, she usually picks up the newspaper first, so as she opened the front door, to her surprise, there were these four kittens on her door steps. Here's the odd part, each kitten was missing a limb or have some sort of birth defect. Like one kitten is missing one eye, one was missing a tail, one was missing an ear and the other was limping (I know its weird so see something cute that has something wrong with it.) My sister was freaked out by it, she called my cousin, so when my cousin saw the kittens, she just shoo kittens away and just continued on with their day.
The third day my cousin stayed there, it was evening and my sister and my cousin were getting ready for bed. As they were sleeping they were awoken by a huge flapping sound and a loud thud on their roof. My sister was so scared that she started crying, then the loud walking thud followed with a the sound of "eek eek eek or tik tik tik" but it sounded like it was far away so my sister thought that what ever that thing was on her roof, so she was like: "It's quiet now, maybe that thing flew away" Then my cousin said: " gaga~ that's an mananangal/aswang, its still there (apparently, if you hear the sound tik tik tik from a distance, its means it nearby.) So as I said before, my cousin came prepare, she brought a bag. Inside it has a bag of garlic, holy water and a red fabrics (I was told that aswangs/manananggal don't like the color red) so this is was my cousin did, is pretty much put garlic on the window frames, on the bed, rubbed on my sister, hanged the red fabrics on the windows and on the bed and then sprayed holy water on every nook and cranny in the room, including my sister and they did the prayer. Next thing they knew, whatever that thing that was roaming around their rooftop, flew away.
The fourth and final day my cousin staying there, it was evening again and this time they were already in bed. While snoozing, my sister was awoken by the sound of buzzing sounds. It wasn't from outside but it was coming from the inside of the room. It was pitch black in their room, so as my sister's eyes were adjusting to the dark, she notice that the walls were moving. She woke up my cousin and when she turned on the lights. What they saw gave a fright of their life. It turned out the buzzing sounds and the moving of the walls were coming from ants, and they were everywhere (I mean as in infestations and the walls were almost the color black) all the walls were covered with ants, some were flying around. So my cousin took bug sprays from the bathroom and just sprayed everywhere until she ran out then switched to a rolled up newspaper and just killing every ant she sees. After that event, my sister got sick (she had these red marks on her body) and was taken to the hospital on the same night.
So that's my sister's week went by. Hope you enjoyed my story, I have other ones told by my families so stay tuned.
