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???

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?
