Curiously earlier this evening, Sarah came to me crying after her evening shower, "Babah, could you please get my trousers from the room upstairs. I'm scared because there's a granny**. The granny is doing this ..."*, showing a knocking motion, as you would on a door. Sarah was doing the knocking motions but pointed at her elbow***.
That really spooked Puan Mama Sarah and yours truly out. I started to ask more questions like "where did Sarah see this granny?", "what does the granny look like?" and "what clothes was she wearing?" but Puan Mama Sarah strongly objected to Sarah answering the questions.
*shivers* kinda remind you of "The Others" doesn't it?
* The sentence is translated from Sarah's Malay speech
** Sarah used the word "Nyang" which to her means "granny".
*** in retrospect, probably Sarah meant the Nyang was knocking on her elbow?
