I used to stay here for quite awhile while waiting to find a permanent place to stay. Actually I did bluffed the warden saying that I would prefer to stay there as a 'Hall Resident' (during that time they're short of guys to do all of the hard works).
I did have my fair share of experience here including weird one. During the first week of staying here, certain 'extra paranormal' things happen to some fellow resident (lucky it was not me) and as a countermeasure the warden held 'Yassin' recitation every night and invited one young 'ustaz' to do some 'cleaning' (with salt & pepper). As for me, the first things that ran in my mind are "What??? Here in Melbourne??? I though in here there is no such thing as gh**t" Haha, after that incident, it really gave me goosebumps everytime I ventured the hall alone.
This place used to be an old hospital for the elderly before the Malaysian Government took over (I'm not sure about this fact) and no wonder if there's some weird thing happening late at night. Wait till you see the laundry room (there is a small door that leads to the basement of the building and also a secret passage to an unknown place and the door to it has been locked to avoid any untoward incidents). The 'ustaz' did say something like "Ermm, kat sini memang 'kuat' skit dari tempat lain, cuba kurang kan berada kat sini". Duhhhh, I'm outta here... Haha...
This is Karim, the new hall's caretaker. Since all of the current residents need to vacate the place due to some renovation (except for 2 peoples) taking places, the warden decided to 'hire' another 'person' who knows no fear to safeguard the hall during the night.
The reasons - Since most of the time the building is left unattended (you know what happen to building that is being left unattended right), might as well put something to 'cheer' the place up.
P/s Till now, the mysteries of the second floor remains unsolved. I think the problems can be avoided if 'they' allowed more 'guest' to stay and make the place more lively than letting the upper floor vacate... Just my 2 cents.
