A Haunted Hotel in Johor

January 30th, 2010

Author’s Note : Some may find this story somewhat familiar as I took it out sometime back due to some unforeseen circumstances. I’ve however took out some of the details that would perhaps get me into trouble but most of the part remains accurate as per what I have been told. Enjoy!
This happened to a girlfriend of mine who used to stay at a hotel in Johorl when she has business trips to Johor Bahru. It was rumored that this hotel in Johor Bahru had a suicide case a few years back where a girl killed herself in one of the hotel’s room.

I used to travel a lot with during my previous job and that included Johor Bahru. Me and my other 2 male companions knew about the suicide case that happened not long and always cautioned this hotel staffs not to put us at that particular floor where it happened (I forgot if it was the 13th or 15th floor, let’s just assume that it was the 13th floor). I would always stay at the non smooking floor which would be located on the 15th floor and above whereas my other 2 male colleagues would stay at the smooking floors. Nothing really happened at everytime I stayed at the there, that is, until that particular day.

It was like any ordinary day and it did not occur to me the slightest when it happened. Co-incidently, I was taking the lift back to my room. Usually, I would be accompanied by my collegeagues but so happen that day, they could not accompany me and I decided to walk back to the hotel room by myself. I pressed the number to my hotel room floor and the lift started to move upwards. As sudden as it seemed, the lift stopped at the floor where the suicide case took place. I thought nothing of it and waited for the lift doors to close. I have to admit that I was kind of puzzled when the lift suddenly stopped at the floor without any warning. That was not the only thing puzzling me, there was no one at that floor at that particular time! I shrugged it off as perhaps it was just some naughty kids playing with the lift buttons.

Evil in the office

January 18th, 2010

Author’s Note : Something unexpected happened at my friend’s office recently. Although, she was not there to witness the whole incident but the drama was the only thing her colleagues were talking about when she reported to work the following day. Here’s the story that she managed to compile from all sorts of sources.

It was just after lunch when our office assistant started going berserk. Most were not back from lunch yet as my office has quite a flexible lunch hour and at that time, those that were in the office had already gone back to their respective places. My colleague, Anna, first heard screams when she was passing by the reception area. Surprised, she went to investigate if there were any problems. Anna was shocked when she saw the assistant throwing things and acting out of control as if she was throwing a big tantrum. Immediately sensing something was wrong, Anna called on some of the guy colleagues to help out. At that moment, there were already many people gathering, curious of what was happening. Some guys took her hands and tried to hold her down but she just keep on struggling and pushing and tossing that even the bigger guys could not hold her down.
