    Anyone likes ASMR videos?

    Not really bah. Everyone has an asmr trigger I guess. “Asmr” is just one of those new fangled names for a thing that has existed for ages. For eg, I’ve always known that getting a head or feet massage will put me to sleep quite quickly, just didn’t know that it’s asmr....

    Autonomous sensory meridian response is an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia and may overlap with frisson. ASMR signifies the subjective experience of "low-grade euphoria" characterized by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin". It is most commonly triggered by specific auditory or visual stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attention control. Stimuli that can trigger ASMR, as reported by those who experience it, include the following: - Listening to a softly spoken or whispering voice. - Listening to quiet, repetitive sounds resulting from someone engaging in a mundane task such as turning the pages of a book. - Watching somebody attentively execute a mundane task such as preparing food. - Loudly chewing, crunching, slurping or biting foods, drinks, or gum. - Receiving tender personal attention. - Listening to a person explain a concept, describe an object or system. TL;DR: something that relaxes you. My personal experience with it doesn’t exactly involve the tingles. A good example would be how older folks like to turn on the TV but not actually watch it then fall asleep but wake up immediately if the background noise is turned off.

    Been using asmr for about 3 years now to help me sleep. I don’t nevessarily watch dedicated asmr videos, vids like Baumgartner restoration works well too.

    Die just die lo. Gonna happen someday anyway mah. Dachie is bo eng gui... Got! It was a wet dream! Your fur babies licked you to death then you fell into the Niagara Falls. Seldom get to see also lah. But I don’t think I will dare. Lots of friends have told me never to let the spirits know I’m aware of their existence. Don’t no trouble go and find trouble.

    Happened 100s and 1000s of times until I don’t even question it anymore when I jump awake or feel weird - an ambulance or hearse will appear extremely shortly or there will be void deck funeral/Indian procession. That’s how I narrowed down the timing and radius. Maybe a few times were animals, I wouldn’t know. I did jump awake when my hamster was taking her last few breaths though.

    Hokkien actually. Consciously see maybe 20 times only (that I know I’m actually seeing something), hear less often. Did have an unpleasant experience during last year’s 7th month when I accidentally walked into what I assume was an entire group of hungry ghosts... head nearly exploded from the crowd noise. Add on: the guy I saw was in his 60s, had the beginning of a bald patch, squat and stout, wore a green (maybe blue cos I tetrachromatic)/white striped polo tee, berms. Looked like any other human. Parents brought me to temple the day after cos I had a horrible dream that night and monk straight up asked did anything happen recently before I even open mouth.

    Do you believe in the Supernatural?

    If I’m sleeping, I will jump awake. If awake, I just feel unexplainable uncomfortable. Only once did I ever see heibai wuchang. On another occasion I saw an old man escorting/herding people up a bus. He was shouting “上车咯!时间到咯!” really loudly. I assumed nobody other than me could see him since not a single person looked in his direction.

    Don’t believe and don’t want to believe but too many strange instances that can’t be explained have happened. For eg, I will instinctively know of any human death within 30 mins in a 500m radius. Used to be 100% of the time I would know but as I get older, radius smaller and only 75% accurate.
