Benjie Paras’ ghost encounter

CEBU, Philippines —  Among Benjie Paras’ major takeaways from the months-long stay-at-home orders is having a newfound appreciation for how his wife takes care of their kids. “Kasi kapag nasa trabaho ako noon, kung kukumustahin ko sila, sasabihin ng asawa ko, ‘Itong mga anak mo, ganito ganyan.’ Sasabihin ko ‘Hayaan mo na, mga bata eh.’ Nung nandito ako at ako’y nagrereklamo sa kanya ‘Uy yung mga bata ganito ganyan.’ Babawian ako, sasabihin sa akin ‘Hayaan mo na, mga bata eh.’ Doon ko na-appreciate yung pag-aalaga ng bata 24 hours,” the basketball player-turned-comedian said.

Currently seen on TV5’s horror-comedy series “Ghost Adventures 2,” Benjie shared he had a real life ghost encounter years back when taping for a comedy show in the old Hyatt Hotel in Baguio. “Ang ingay namin nagkukulitan. Dun sa parang veranda, yung babae nakatingin sa akin, nakapamewang. Niloloko ko pa nga eh, ‘Hoy sali ka sa amin. Sabi ko, ‘Talon ka sasaluhin kita.’ Mamaya lumapit sa akin yung caretaker ng kabilang bahay. Sabi niya, ‘Sino yung kinakausap mo?’ Sabi ko yung babae sa balcony galit yata. Sabi sa akin, wala na po nakatira diyan, abandoned na,” Benjie narrated.

“Yung pagbalik ko ng tingin sa bahay, kulay itim na, wala ng ilaw. Hindi ako makagalaw. Yung PA namin na may third eye, lumapit sa akin, sabi ‘Nakapalda na puti Kuya noh? Mahaba ang buhok tapos nakapamewang.’ Sabi ko asan siya? Nakatingin pa rin sayo. Mula noon tahimik na ako the whole time sa taping.”
