White Lady In The Car


To start things off, this ghostly encounter took place in the Philippines, somewhere around Manila City. This happened to my friend's grandmother while she was driving in her car.

Approximately two years ago, my friend's grandmother was driving around in her car near Manila, Philippines when she got an eerie feeling sort of like if someone was watching you. Since it was night-time it was considerably dark, well at least dark enough that it was hard to see the road. When she got that eerie feeling she made out a figure on the road when she finally slammed the breaks.

"Get the **** off the road" she yelled, but the figure on the road (which was a lady in white commonly known as the White Lady) just kept her finger pointing to my friend's grandma. My friend's grandma thought it was just some crazy lady so she just decided to let it pass and drive.

5 minutes later she got another weird feeling. This time she checked on the road and no one was there, but she noticed that the same tree she saw when she encountered the woman was there-in the exact spot. Coincidence? I think not.

She looked in her rear-view mirror and saw the lady whom she saw before still pointing her finger but this time in the back seat of the car. She grabbed some salt in her compartment and threw it at the apparition and it disappeared.

After that she got a blessing from the priest telling her never to go into that road again. It turns out the road was a giant loop and she was going around in circles. The White Lady still haunts the Philippines and is seen by many people who reside near Quezon City.

Hmm... I'm familiar with the incident especially here in the Philippines that when a place is badly haunted, you can't easily "get out" of it. You'll just try to find your way out but you'll see yourself returning on the same spot. And by the way, your friend's grandma is quite brave, eh? Hehe... She didn't even feel scared even the White Lady is on her back seat. And maybe, that lady has a message to your grandma that's why she pointed out the finger to your friend's grandma. Anyway, it's a good story. Thanks for sharing and God bless! =)

Nice! I have seen cases regarding the Lady In White on tv being solved and all that, so I kind of sort of know about it, but I did NOT know about the loop thing! Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but salt (or rocksalt,
Specifically) is used to get rid of all kinds of bad spirits and ghosts, isn't it? Something about the whole salt purifies the evil stuff, so it only makes sense that when your friends grandma threw salt at her, she disappeared. Anyways, Nice story!

I would so freak out. You are so much braver than me. Oh and don't ever go on the road again. Never know what could happen. Oh and why would you carry salt around. Oh well lucky for you thanks for sharing.

i'v heard of this giant loop around QC! I have been told by family friends, cousins and cousins friends in the philippines whenever I visit and they've just always told me to be careful and suprisingly enough, every time I went around QC while on holidays over there in 2004, whoever drove that day always carried salt in their car. My lolo (grandfather) use to practice as a witch doctor back in the day also warned me and told me to carry salt with me whenever I went out in philippines. Id rather be safe than sorry.

Hi Phuong,

It seems like a very interesting story, I've heard loads of stories of people seeing dead on the road and suddenly they see them in their car, it happened to my own grandad. Me too, I didn't know about the salt part.

Well done

Excuse me Phuong.

Bellissima: Hi! Yes, I'm back. I was kind of getting a little busy at home and for some reason the stories on here were getting, well, a little on the ridiculous side. It seemed like children were taking over and writing silly stuff and I just didn't want to waste my time anymore reading them. Also, when Martin said that he would be away for awhile because of work, and told everyone too keep it clean, be good, or something like that, the immaturity of the comments were terrible. I'm really happy to be back. 😁 Thanks for noticing. That made my day knowing that I was missed by someone on this site. I actually missed talking to you guys too.

Again, sorry Phuong. I really did like your story and I will be carrying salt in my glove compartment now, you know, just in case. I didn't know that it would get read of a spirit if you tossed it at them.

Mustang! - (Please excuse me Phuong) - where have you been hiding? I was wondering what happened, I missed your comments!
Phuong, I'm sorry for intruding on your story. I saw Mustang had commented recently and hoped she'd see her name in the sidebar. I enjoyed your story. Your friend's Grandmother sounds pretty feisty! Thanks for sharing your story.

Hi Phuong. Spooky story. There have been times where I am driving at night and I get the creeps sooo bad and I am terrified to look in the rear view mirror in fear of there being a ghost sitting back there hitchhiking. ðŸ˜ĻI think I am going to start keeping salt in my glove compartment, just in case. Thanks for sharing your story.

What a wonderful legend. Thank you.

For what it is worth, salt is one of the things I carry in my vehicle along with sage, lavender and and pretty stones.

You simply never know.
