However, did you know that this gigantic shopping mall was built on a once known Kemayan City back in 1997 which was a spooky ghost town after being abandoned for 20 years?

With the mall’s recent opening, social media is once again filled with spine-chilling stories that would give anyone goosebumps. So, here are some of the stories that we managed to find on social media.

1 . The Singaporean family who shopped at this unopened mall

Here’s the brief translation.

“A Singaporean family attended their relatives’ ceremony in Johor. As they were on their way back from the ceremony, they saw a brightly lit shopping mall and it was bustling with shoppers. So they decided to stop by and had a shopping spree.”

“Afterwards, they went back to Singapore. At home, they were shocked to find that the items in the shopping bags turned out to be dried leaves, and the balance money returned by the cashier was gone as well!”

“They went back to the building the next day and discovered it was an empty building.”


2. The passenger who asked to be dropped off at the abandoned shopping mall

Long story short, a passenger requested the taxi driver to drop him/her off at Kemayan City. When the driver was about to collect the fare from the passenger, he/she was nowhere to be found.

There was only the taxi driver at the scene. I’m out! 


3. The toilet is ‘dirty’

A netizen shared a conversation between her boyfriend and his friend.

Apparently, it was after 10pm when the man was all alone in the toilet. According to the guy, the water pipe was turned on by itself and there was someone flushing the toilet next door. Nope, nope, nope.


Again, these are just rumours as told by locals and netizens over the years. If there’s anything that you should be worried about when visiting Paradigm Mall JB, it’s not the ghost; it’s their head-spinning multi-storey car park.

Check out the video below and you’ll know what we’re talking about.
