My beautician, Y told me this while I was having my facial the other day.
Y used to have an arowana , of which she reared from a baby til it was almost 2 feet in length. One day Y returned home spent from shuttling between tending to her salon and 2 kids. Y is a single mum, you see. She collapsed on her tatami on the living room the minute she reached home after sending kids to school and fell asleep almost instantly.
She claimed she woke up dazed to find a stranger, a girl sitting next to her. The girl said she had come to bid her farewell as she was going for reincarnation. As the girl was a total stranger, she hurriedly got up and showed the girl to the door and pleaded for her to leave. When she opened the door, she saw 3 more strangers standing outside and they seemed to be waiting for the girl, and off they went.
When Y hit the tatami again, she claimed she became wide awake and couldn't sleep and hence she decided to head back to her salon.
That night, when she returned home, she found her pet fish sprawled on the floor, perished. Y was devastated.
Next day as she was clearing out the fish and the fish tank, a neighbour came out and asked what had happened. When Y explained what had happened, the neighbour replied "Yah, so weird. Yesterday my 3 hampsters also died"!!!
Remember the 3 strangers standing outside the door! Ewww............
