Close(t) Encounter

This is based on a true story.

Many many moons ago when I was still working in a financial institution in KL, I would already be in the office by 7ish every morning. Why? Office was located in Jalan Sultan Ismail, so you can imagine the jam if I were to come to work at about 8ish.


So back to the story, I was always the first one to be in the office and I would usually be the one to switch the lights on. So one fine morning, as I was walking to switch the lights on (which was at the end of the room). I heard a very strange noise. It was rather muffled but it was unmistakable.

I have heard a lot of stories about the office being a very ‘keras’ (haunted) place but I didn’t really believe in the stories told. But that morning, I heard that funny noise and I froze in front of my working cubicle. Images of Pontianak and Hantu Raya floating around came to mind as I walked quickly to the end of (a very long) room to reach the light switch. The nearer I get to the end of the room, the louder was the noise…but wait a minute, the noise sounded like a moaning sound…

…No, TWO moaning sound. Two moaning sound one of a mans and the other of a womans.

After I reached the light switch, the sound became so loud that I was certain that it was not Pontianak or Hantu Raya floating around trying to scare the bejeezes of me. The moaning sound came from inside the store room next to the light switch. It was so loud that I’m sure, if there was any Pontianak or Hantu Raya floating around, they’d have cork stuffed in their ears (errrr do they have ears?).

How now brown cow?

I decided to open the door to the store room and what I saw was makcik cleaner (‘the cleaning lady’) was doing the doggy dog style with one of the male cleaners (note that I don't use pakcik here. She was old he was young). They were so into it that I stood there for almost a full 10 seconds before they realized I was there!!

I was horrified as that was my first (and the last one I hope) face-to-face sexual lambada encounter ever. I mean, heck we all watch porn (yes you do admit it) but to catch a makcik cleaner with a male cleaner doing what they were doing in the wee hour of the morning?

The makcik and the male cleaner screamed before they bolted out of the store room and out of the office


I buy my own pen and eraser after that.
