Enhancing value, Jho Low? Whose value?

From a Tanjung Bungah kiddo who used to struggle to keep up with the other boys at the Penang Swimming Club, Low Taek Jho aka Jho Low has paddled away to more enticing waters as an international wheeler and dealer. But now, he has come under intense scrutiny as 1MDB struggles to keep afloat in a sea of liquidity constraints.

Check out this pretentious video and then decide whether you would want to do business with an outfit like this.

Ah, the joys of high-living and talking it up….

It is literally high living; blog visitor SA writes:

Adoi real lawak this Jho Low video … teruk betul ad campaignnya, the script and visuals. And why do they keep making calls on rooftops and (from the) edge of verandas? Dalam buildings tu tak dak signal ka???

Our blog correspondent Michael writes:

After two minutes of this syrupy voice-over of virtual disillusionment, I gagged on the debasement of words such as “trust”, “loyalty”, “quality”, and phrases such as “creating value for everyone”.

A hollow lifestyle of greed, and ultimate loneliness is presented here as if it is desirable ….

Imagine living 24/7 in this sort of artificial environment surrounded by sleaze…

And we are letting these hollow individuals dictate how we should live our lives!

The ordinary people of the world need to take back what was given to all….lands, skies and seas that in their nakedness are beautiful and meet their full fruition when enhanced by people using simple non-intrusive, life- affirming and environmentally friendly methodologies.

Jho Low needs to explain what his role, if any, was in the 1MDB-PetroSaudi-Gold Star-UBG deals. Check out this expose by the Sunday Times. (Now we know why Low could claim that he was not part of 1MDB. He was all over the place.)

A friend of Low’s said the 34-year-old was happy to talk to him about his ‘happening’ social life – but would keep mum about his deals. The reality is, many Malaysians want to know more about his deals than his partying.

I wonder how those people featured in the video above are feeling now.

But where is Jho Low?

Jho is … in the same league as Pek Moh Tain.

Jho Low is the equivalent of George Tan of BMF taking advantage of (the) stupid and greedy…

Life story of Asian version of wolf of wall street based on Jho Low meteoric rise in wealth kingdom may be Oscar material. Local actor Jack Lim of Ah Beng fame can play this character, with proper make up can have sepet eyelook like Jho.

Well, a long stint behind bars is always a good way to lose weight especially after all that partying.

Do you really take these accusations seriously? The “proof” that SR provided contained email exchange from Gmail accounts. Look at those emails and ask yourself if the whole thing makes sense at all, leaving aside your political prejudices. This time SR painted itself into a corner by involving in forgery and manipulations. They got away before with their accusations but this time with PetroSaudi’s police report in London, Claire and her buddies (may) soon find themselves behind bars.

Now what was that about a piece of land owned by certain well-connected parties which was sold to 1MDB at a very nice price? Despite the land being allegedly very difficult to develop due to well-entrenched squatters?

Going by the video, Jho Low’s vision is to turn Penang into a dense and high rise city like Hong Kong?

Jho Low is now the PM’s new foreign policy expert, dictating Malaysia’s foreign policy with Saudi Arabia? Jho Low is said to have arranged for Najib to be interviewed by Jamal Kashoggi, who was most likely the General Manager of the Al Arabiya News Channel.

Malaysia should stand tall – hiring the services of a poker kingpin for national security and a playboy/scammer for foreign policy!

Universiti Malaysia can start to engage Jynwel Capital to prepare syallbuses for courses like the art of shuffling money with case study on PetroSaudi vs Foreign Policies. SURE can attract more foreign students to enrol in the exclusive Bolehland Get Rich schemes.

Anil and some readers may not be aware that this infamous Penangkia once made a lavish proposal to a Taiwanese singer and made it public e.g. on YouTube.
Some of us may not share his values on how to get rich, but somehow new generations may follow his path of acquainting the rich and connected ones to get rich fast.
This Penangkia in years to come if still around may become a classic Penang Sugar Daddy going after the “ParisHilton of Penang”…..

iSupercally

He was also in company with Paris Hilton and there are gossip all over. Why do we have to butt into others` people personal lives. He is rich and he know how to get richers. He want to enjoy and become sugar daddy. Thats what almost every rich and famous always do. Nothing unusual. Now whats` the problem.

ISupercally has stated very clearly. His father is a rich man who own a public listed company. With his father guidance and contact he too can be as successful. Do you know who his father is and what is the name of the listed company. For your info his father is in property and just like his father he invested in properties. Property dealing can really get you rich very quick and I do invest in some although very very small compared to him

Michael

The simple point is that the wealthy make it their business to butt into other people’s lives….to make videos and other propaganda tools to try and convince others to depart them selves from their money.

…selling the illusion that the portrayed lifestyle of the rich makes one happy…thereby making the wealthier, wealthier.

The lifestyle portrayed in such low level propaganda is delusional.

Yang

Michael ; What are advertisement for. ????

iSupercally

Nothing unusual or a surprise being rich and successful. His father owned a public listed company. He just follow connection as most businessman do. Did not almost all the developer companies in Penang use their connection to the meow in one way or another. Does anyone know who is the owner for Zeennith that is the main contractor for the tunnel. You will be surprise its from ahmo

Haiya, Zenith’s Zarul is connected with Nazri lah !
Zenith now is a sheer empty shell company only with the backing of China’s two giants. Moreover, it has “missed” ALL the timelines in they Penang projects due to the delay of E&O’s reclamation of Seri Tanjong 2 (as payment) !

Yang

You are spot on which is why Nazri get on so well with the CAT and at time defended him. Hope Anil can see through this drama

Qsurvey

Seri Tanjung Pinang 2 is now in the limelight of a few Chinese big investors. It seems they are more willing to to pay even a very hefty price (of over RM1500/psf) for the “yet to be formed lands” !
At the rate it is going, Penang Island’s property prices are poised to go above RM1500/psf sooner than anybody’s guess.

owc

iSupercaly still syiok syiok with Jho Low’s 1Malaysia concert in Penang?
