Who Is Jho Lo, The Real Malay Whale ?

Hantu Laut

Now that Rocky Bru has decided to break the story about the mystery Malaysian man who took New York nightclubbing scene by storm I would like to share in the "need to know" who this whiz-kid is as no one seemed to have ever heard of him.

I heard of Jho Lo about 6 months ago and his social scenes with some famous Hollywood starlets and ostentatious display of wealth that even the rich and famous in America would shy away from.

The guy may not have the looks but he certainly has style.The thing is everywhere he goes he claimed his close relationship with Najib and wife Rosmah. How far this is true only the Prime Minister can answer. Jho Lo may be a name dropper?

Read what the blogs have to say about him.

The Jho Lo Files:A Real Malay Whale

Throughout the summer, rumors started spreading that a mystery man had been showing up at New York's hottest nightclubs and spending ridiculous amounts of money. One story even had him rolling into Avenue during fashion week and spending $160,000 in one night. As soon as the rumors began, rival clubs owners began working the phones, hoping to either add fuel to the fire or put it out because the big spender from Asia was extremely press shy. If news of his spending got out, the unlucky club owner named in the story would lose all of this guy's business. According to one nightlife source, losing four months of this customer could cost an operator as much $2 million.Yesterday, the NY Post blew the roof off the big spender, running a full spread on Taek Jho Low, a Malaysian-born Wharton grad who has inexplicably become the biggest whale in New York City.

While no one knows much about Jho, his business or his past, they certainly know about his nightclub spending habits. In addition to his lavish night at Avenue, Lo has also had a few other wild nights on the town. According to the Post:

· At 1OAK, he sent LiLo 23 bottles of Cristal as a birthday present
· Routinely spent $50,000 to $60,000 at Pink Elephant
· Flew eight Pink Elephant waitresses to Malaysia after a wild night at Pink Elephant in Southhampton

Anyway, the Yanks can't tell the difference between a Chinese Malaysian and Malay Malaysian.They think Malay is a nationality.
