One of the malls near my town - the Metropolis (located in Muntinlupa) - is a busy place. It's used as a boarding station for buses going to the city, plus the Bureau of Internal Revenue has an office there, so the place is always bustling during the daytime.
Nighttime however, is a different story. This is the only mall I know of in the country that has its cinemas' last showing at only 7:00pm at night, and the stores in the mall close at that time too, even during the holiday sale seasons.
Some years ago a friend ( let's call him Joseph) and his own friends went to Metropolis to watch Saving Private Ryan. They bought tickets for the last show of the evening (7pm) and stepped into the theater. They were surprised to see that the entire cinema was full, with people even sitting on the aisles. As they moved through the throng of people, they could tell that there was no hope of getting any seats, so they stepped out of the theater and back into the mall.
As they exited, the ticket lady looked at them in surprise and asked why they were leaving so soon. Upon explaining that the theater was full, the ticket lady paled and gestured to the bin where the tickets were placed, and it only held 5 tickets - Joseph's and his 4 friends!
Many people have experienced this type of thing, to the point that the mall's owners have changed the last showing from the normal 11pm to 7pm.
Recently, another friend and her college classmates were walking around that mall. She noticed that one of the girls in their group would often fidget, close her eyes, and mutter something incoherent. After a while, the girl grabbed my friend's arm and said "please, let's get out of here." When asked what was wrong, she responded, "I'll explain outside, please let's just go!" Already creeped out by the reputation of the mall, the group allowed themselves to be herded out by the distraught girl. Outside the mall, my friend asked for an explanation for making them leave so suddenly.
Apparently, this girl had a third eye and could see spirits. What she told them raised the hairs of everyone in the group! "There were spirits waving their hands in front of your eyes and talking... Peering into your faces to see if you could see them." And not only that! What she said next scared everybody there! "They did that to me too... Waving their hands and looking into my face... And they were taunting me saying 'you can see us, right? You can see us!'"
"If what you see by the eye doesn't please you, then close your eyes and see from the heart. Because the heart can see beauty and love more than the eyes can ever wonder..." Please add me up in Facebook, Friendster, and Twitter, firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks!
