Friends know that I refer to parking attendants as parking pontianaks (ever since I watched Dim Sum Dolly years ago). Tonight when I witnessed one diligently performing his “duty” in a public carpark, a little tune started to ring in my mind suddenly…

Pontianak Is Coming To Town (sang to the tune of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town)

You better watch out
You better not doubt
You better not try
I’m telling you why
Pontianak is coming to town!

He sees you when you’re cheating
He knows when you’re away
He knows that you’ve been bad or good
So be good for your own sake!

He’s booking one car
He’s booking two cars
He’s booking more cars
And he’s coming your way
Pontianak is coming to town!
