'I have a story to share :)) a few years back , during puasa , my friend told me about her mom and sisters' encounter with a strange being. They were walking back from a neighbour's house when all of a sudden , they saw something white near the gate of the neighbour ryte infront of their house. As they came nearer, they realized that the white looking thing was in human shape, wearing a white cloth covering from shoulder to the floor. They were shocked to see the white form soo much that they didn't notice that the humanoid being had a bald head. After calming down and daringly try to go to their house, they realized that the humanoid was actually a real person, Mr. M (bns) who was actually their neighbour :D he was wearing his white garment coz he just came back from prayer~ lol.. thats all ! xD'
