A PETAI tree in Gua Musang, Kelantan, has been “crying” buckets, so much so that some people came with pails to collect the water, Metro Ahad reported.

“I found out about it when I was on my way home last Monday. The road was wet. I thought there was a pipe leaking somewhere,” said resident Ayah Long, 59.

“When I passed below the tree, it felt like a drizzle,” he said.

Upon closer inspection, he found the tree “weeping” through the leaves and branches.

Apparently, the tree would shed water between 8pm and 6am.

Since it became “news” on social media, the place had become a carnival of sorts with people arriving with pails and containers.

> A reader of Mingguan Malaysia related an eerie encounter with a woman who had actually been dead a month earlier.

The 27-year-old reader named Anisah shared in the Misteri column that she saw the woman inside a lift when she was on her way home from school one day.

Anisah, who was then a 12-year-old pupil in Singapore, said it was about 7pm at the time.

The woman was in her 20s and wearing a white floral baju kurung, she recounted.

She looked pale and seemed to be in great anxiety, Anisah said.

The next day, Anisah chanced upon a newspaper obituary which showed the photograph of the woman.

Going by the obituary, the woman’s date of death was about a month ago.
