Low Taek Jho, a Penang Kiah is now world famous, at least in the entertainment world!
Excerpt from Yahoo News....
His big-spending ways have made him the talk of New York’s night life scene. The operator of New York’s Pink Elephant Club told The New York Post that Mr. Low spent between S$69,000 and S$82,000 there a night. The baby-faced Malaysian also reportedly spent more than $218,000 on another night with his entourage at club Avenue this September during Fashion Week.
His current globe-trotting lifestyle covers places like Los Angeles, New York, London, Abu Dhabi, Kuala Lumpur and St Tropez. It was in St. Tropez where he and Paris Hilton reportedly chalked up a whopping S$3.8 million bill at the exclusive Byblos nightclub. The pair are rumoured to be dating after Paris was photographed topless on his luxury yacht in what the Hilton heiress has referred to as “heaven on water”.
In an interview with Malaysian paper The Star on Thursday, Low revealed the source of his wealth. At twenty years of age, he started an investment fund called The Wynton Group with US$25 million from his family and nine other investors made up of schoolmates from the Middle East.“As of today, Wynton’s investments stands at in excess of US$1 billion.
Despite his growing reputation as a party animal with deep pockets, the Arab-speaking multi-linguist claims reports about his big-spending party lifestyle are exagerrated. He insists it is his Arab childhood friends and investors who are the ones splashing out on the parties and not him.
Either way, with a bevy of models on his arm, an endless supply of his favourite Cristal champagne and a red sports car from Jamie Foxx as a birthday gift, you won’t find him complaining.
He is also close to Usher and Leonardo Di Carprio (Star of Titanic and Inception) and planning to do a Hollywood movie here in Malaysia. In his 28th birthday celebration, actress Megan Fox was flown in to join the party!
I think we need to ask two pertinent questions in regards to money as far as God is concern...
1. How do you get the money?
2. How do you use your money?
I don't know whether Jho is an inspiration or not but I know one very clear Scripture verse that speaks to me personally -
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? (Mark 8:36)
I am not jealous or what because his enjoyment is none of my business but I challenge Christian young people to seek first the Kingdom of God which is the very reason why God puts us here!
