Mahasiswa Jogja || Galih Story (Ghosts in the photo)
I have moved now from my first kosan (Kosan means rent room). Now, my new kosan is way more comfortable than the old one. T has brighter illumination so that I need no worries when the dusk comes, also people living in this kosan are more than the old one.
But, I still have a mystical experienced outside. But I will keep those experiences for later. Now, I will a mystical experience of a friend of mine named Galih.
Galih , as I told above is my friend. He goes to the same campus as I do, but he takes different major. He takes Music major in my campus. Thus, we do not frequently meeting. We just sometimes met when we are in kosan.
As a music major student, Galih is a type of cool dude. He is also good-lookung. He has a good taste on fashion. Also, he has a lot of friend. Well, that what a music major student will do in every campus in this world (maybe).
Galih has a girlfriend named Ratna who also in the same music class as Galih. Ratna is also cool chick. One day, when Galih cam to my kosan, he told me a frightening story he just experienced when he was out with Ratna. This is the story.
It was Saturday night. A night at which Indonesia peple will go hanging out with their friend or couple. Galih, at that nigh asked Ratna to join him hang out. It was 09.00 P.M when they drove the motorcycle to Alun-Alun Kidul (Alun-Alun means like city hall, and Alun Alun Kidul is a famous city hall in Yogyakarta at which you can hang out there. There are also many food seller there especially in Saturday night.)
As they arrived in Alun-Alun Kidul, Ratna and Galih decided to buy some junk-food in the food seller. Then after they bought what they wanted, they go to the play-ground area. There is also play-ground area in Alun-Alun Kidul that will be used by kids in the day.
There, they sat on a slide. Then, Galih took his pocket camera out from his sack. He click the turn-on bottom, and the camera screen was on. The light around the slide was quite good at that night to take a shoot. Then, both Galih and Ratna took a lot of selfie photo. Sometime galih who hold the camera, sometimes Ratna did it.
While they were taking a photograph, a food seller passed in front of him. Calling out the food seller, Galih then asked him for a help to take a picture of him and Ratna. After all that shoots they just did. They, then, checked the result on that pocket came. One by one those digital picture was shown on a slide. The results were quite good and the photos were all good. After having all photos checked, they then decided to go back home. Galih dropped Ratna in Her kosan before he returned to his.
By the time he arrived in kosan, Galih then turned on the laptop and open his Facebook. He was just so excited to upload the photos to Facebook and tagged them to Ratna’s Facebook. Having connect the pocket camera to the laptop using an USB cable, Galih then selected the photos he thought the best to be uploaded.
The he marked the photo before have them uploaded. It took a while until all selected photos were uploaded. If you noticed, before being finally published, Face will let you give a last preview on the photo you just uploaded so that you can change you mind if then you found the photo you dislike is accidentally uploaded.
Galih did the preview to all the photos he uploaded. The all look perfect, but something weird happened when it came to the photo in a slide. He took a look really close to make sure there is nothing wrong in the photo. In the photo, there were Galih and Ratna. Galih was in the right side while ratna was in the Galih’s left side. Galih can’s believe his eyes when he saw a little boy in his right side in the photo. The boy in the photo wore all white clothes. He wore Javanese traditional cloth and all of the clothes was white. But when he saw at the boy’s face. It was all dark. He cannot see the boy’s eyes or mouth or nose. It was all dark. The boy had a very dark face.
Then he moved his eyes to the Ratna's body picture. Besides Ratna, there was a boy that wore a black Javanese Traditional cloth. But, the boy has white face. All white, till his eyes or mouth and nose cannot be seen.
Galih was extremely shocked. Then he was scared to death when he looked at Ratna's face picture. Ratna face in the picture turned to be a very scary face. All of her eyes were white while her mouth was wide open.
Galih then stepped back from his laptop. He took a deep breath. He was silent for a moment. He looked around to make sure that nothing wrong happened in his room. Still frightened, Glih decided to back to his laptop. He wanted to make sure if everything was not real. Then, he still saw those scary photos. Galih then cancelled to upload the photo.
Galih open the folder at which the photo he took in Alun Alun stored. He checked one by one and he also found the same photo to the photo that showed two boys and a scary Ratna’s face. The photo in the folder just looked good, there were no boys in black and white Javanese traditional cloth, and also Ratna face was not scary. She beautifully smiled in the photo, not gave a wide open mouth.
Note I myself had already seen the photo by my own eyes. And I am sure that the photo was weird. It was normal when it is stored on the laptop or pocket camera, but when it was uploaded on facebook and it is previewed, the photo turned ti be a very scary photo.
The orginal story written in Bahasa Indonesia is taken from here!
Pasca pindah dari kos oren, hidup ane jadi tenang gan .Kosan baru ane ini nyaman, terang, hangat dan yang ngekos disini juga ramah-ramah. Intinya, sejak ane pindah sampe sekarang, belum pernah ada kejadian aneh-aneh di kosan baru ane.However, di luar kos, ane masih beberapa kali ngalamin yang mistis-mistis gitu. Tapi ane simpen deh ceritanya buat entar-entar. Kali ini, ane mau cerita soal pengalaman temen ane yang namanya Galih.
Galih ini kuliah di kampus yang sama dengan ane. Cuman beda jurusan. Ane jurusan desain, doi jurusan musik. Ketemunya ga sering sih. Cuma kadang-kadang aja ketemu di kontrakan temen. Buat catetan, si galih ini orangnya gaul gan. Bukannya ane maho atau gimana, cuman mau objektif aja, doi ini orangnya good looking. Ganteng gagah, selera bajunya juga bagus. Ya wajar sih kan anak musik kudu tampil apik kalo manggung. Temennya doi juga banyak gan.
Nah, suatu hari, ane ketemu si Galih dan pas ane tanyain gimana kabarnya, doi langsung ngasi ane cerita mistis yang dia alamin beberapa minggu terakhir. Galih ini punya gebetan gan. Katakanlah namanya Ratna. Ane pernah ketemu Ratna ini cuman sekali. Tapi cewek ini lumayan asik. Sesama jurusan musiknya sama Galih. Intinya, selama beberapa minggu, Galih pedekate lah sama Ratna.Suatu malem minggu, Galih ngajak Ratna jalan-jalan keliling jogja. Sekitar jam 9 malem, Galih sama Ratna mutusin mau jajan di Alun-Alun Kidul (Alkid). Alun-alun kidul ini kalo malem minggu rame tenan gan. Banyak orang pacaran, atau keluarga yang emang lagi nongkrong aja. Banyak yang jualan jajan juga. Di Alkid biasanya ada yang ngasi jasa sepeda dan becak lampu.Buat yang tinggal di jogja, pasti tau dong kalo di pinggir-pinggir alkid ini ada spot tempat nongkrong yang ada mainan anak-anaknya kayak panjat-panjatan, perosotan, sama lompat-lompatan dari ban yang ditanem setengah di tanah. Nah, habis beli jajan, Galih sama Ratna duduk di salah satu spot ini. Kalo kata ceritanya si Galih sih, mereka duduk di spot yang ada panjat-panjatannya. Tempatnya kaga remang-remang kok. Lumayan terang.Dan layaknya ABG, mereka nyempetin poto-poto alay pake kamera poket, berhubung cahaya juga memadai buat poto-poto. Nah, mereka kan akhirnya pengen di poto berdua dengan keliatan background tempat bermain panjat-panjatan. Galih akhirnya minta tolong penjual jajan dideket situ buat motoin dia sama Ratna . Dan kayak anak ABG pada umumnya, mereka berdua ngecekin hasil jepretannya. Ga ada yang aneh sih. Ada beberapa orbs, tapi ya biasalah kalo di alkid. Ga ada penampakan-penampakan juga. Hasil potonya juga bagus-bagus. Setelah agak malem, Galih nganter Ratna pulang ke kos.
Sesampainya Galih di kosan, doi pengen cepetan upload tuh poto sama Ratna ke pesbuk. Setelah diseleksi yang paling apik, Galih ngupload beberapa foto ke pesbuk, termasuk foto yang mereka berdua dengan latar mainan panjat-panjatan.Kan kalo dipesbuk, habis upload, ada notifikasi preview foto sebelum di publish kan gan. Nah, preview ini Galih ngerasa ada yang aneh sama foto berlatar belakang panjat-panjatan. Di klik lah itu foto. Trus galih cuman bisa mangap ngeliat hasil upload annya.
Di bagian tengah foto kan ada Galih sama Ratna berdiri berjejer. Galih di kanan, Ratna di kiri. Nah, disebelah kanannya Galih ini ada anak kecil pake baju serba putih dari atas sampe bawah, mulai blangkon sampe sarung jawanya warna putih. Tapi mukanya item semua. Disebelah kirinya Ratna, ada anak kecil pake baju serba hitem dari atas sampe bawah, tapi mukanya putih semua.Belum selese kagetnya si Galih, dia ngeliat wajahnya Ratna di foto. Wajahnya ratna jadi serem. Matanya putih semua, mulutnya mangap lebar. Setelah agak tenang, galih ngecek foto di kamera poket sama di leptopnya. Foto yang sama, sebelum di upload, gambarnya normal gan. Ga ada anak kecil dan mukanya si Ratna senyum manis.
Akhirnya, foto-foto yang barusan diupload itu didelete sama galih. Khusus cerita ini, ane yakin seyakinyakinnya Galih kaga bohong. Soalnya setelah diceritain gini, ane diajak ke kosannya Galih buat liat sendiri potonya. Di leptop dan kamera digital normal gan. Trus galih ngeupload ulang poto itu ke pesbuk. Foto itu berubah jadi serem.
Siapa tau ada yang penasaran, Ratna ini cewek normal gan. Bukan hantu, jin, atau semacamnya. Ane kenal orangnya soalnya. Dan setelah ngeupload poto serem itu, Galih langsung telepon Ratna, sapa tau dia kenapa-kenapa. Ya ternyata Ratnanya aman-aman aja. Doi juga ga pernah kesurupan atau gimana gitu.
