The Ghost of Johor

Lim Kang Hoo: "de facto MB"?
Lim Kang Hoo. If you're not a Johorean, you might ask, "Lim Kang who?". That's ok. Even among business journalists in Kuala Lumpur, the name does not ring a bell instantly, recognition comes only after you throw in Danga Bay and Ekovest as broad hints. But within the circle of those in the know in Johor and Singapore, Dato' Lim's name inspires both awe and jealousy, even suspicion. Unlike Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary, the man who has to manage at least two gateways into Johor (Port of Tanjung Pelepas and Senai International Airport), Lim is liked by the Istana. He does many business jointly with the state government, which is not a bad thing, of course, but with some people already labelling him as "the de facto MB of Johor", it can't be all that good, either.

Now, I see Lim's name all over the latest, detailed posting by Zakhir Mohamad, an anak Johor, about being subservient to Singapore in Serving the new-economic master. I have an affinity to both Singapore and Johor so I shall not comment on this alleged slave-master relationship at this juncture.What draws me is how cryptic Zakhir has become in this article. He writes about "..a major corporate play" in Johor "involving a certain public listed company on an land-bank acquisition roll". Parcels of land have or in the process to be lined up for acquisition or injected into this PLC, he said.
But throughout the article, Zakhir made mention of not a single corporate player. He wrote of Iskandar, Petroans, Kulim, JCorp, and the role of an ex-Fourth Floor boy in all this new economic slavery business, but no names. 

Quite unlike Big Dog. Why?

Is he afraid of the Ghost of Johor?

p.s. Lim is not the Ghost. The Ghost is said to be haunting a lot of businesses in the state, asking for 30 per cent here and 30 per cent there. If this ghost's hunger can't be satiated and things are not properly handled, we will have to exorcise this ghost soon.

    Oh, my - another "conspiracy theory" rears it's ugly head!

    If we are to talk about "economic slavery", one should ask just how the "slavemaster" and the "slaves" came into being.

    It doesn't seem logical that a city-state with a population of 5 million could lord it over a much bigger geographic entity endowed with natural resources.

    Unless the bigdog guy can postulate another set of theories to account for this heresy that flies in the face of common sense.

    Bro Bru,
    Has Johor being turned into another El Dorado?
    It irks me most when visiting friends from outside Johor consider how lucky I am living in Johor, as though I am awashed with projects here there and everywhere in Iskandar Johor.
    Maybe true for the big players exchanging papers upon papers and letting the banks to steamroll financial packages
    based on figures dished out on excell.
    What differentiate between these corporate players (manipulators)and the man in the street, the class F contractors, a Mamat selling Ramly burgers is the later have to fork out their own hard earned cash to start their business. Could it be said of the same for these corporate manipulators?
    The only common factor is that we are all slave to need and greed.

  8. Datuk,

    Good that you and BD raised this matter. Yes, the past two years the "Ghost of Johor" and all the pelesits around them hv been trying to make a fast one, in sundry. They are literally the 'Mafioso' of JB.

    They practically feast on anything 'edible', within the Iskandar Region. And now, they are extending it elsewhere.

    Nothing misses them!

    But Ghani is not without his share of 'ghosts' as well. His cronies in the likes of HVAC/cable support system fabricator Dato Rahman Shariff of Dymac is now a developer. And privatizing state govt land.

    Also IT contractor Md Sees Ali of Mysysnet, who recently been awarded 96 religious schools en-bloc all over Johor.

    These two 'ghosts' are not as greedy and notorious as the "Ghost of Johor" and his evil disciples, devouring the state. But never the less, people are watching. Probably is not Ghani's weakness that entrepreneur should be given opportunities. Is the greed and perception that comes with these cronies' greed makes ppl loathe!

    Don't take my word for it. Ask around. More names will surface soon, that I'm almost sure.

    Well,JB is not a sleeping hollow after all.

    There is this term that Johoreans use all the time to reflect on their anger turning rage;


    Don't allow rakyat Johor NAIK HANTU!

    Spot on, Big Dog but with major caveats in relation to Singapore itself. Caveats that will render your concerns as unfounded.

    Singapore is in terminal economic decline as its population ages and many born and bred Singaporeans migrate in droves while its ramshackle infrastructure creaks under the pressures of limited capacity and under-invetsment and a port that is more a parking lot for excess capacity than a thriving hub of cargo exchange

    Economically, the city-state is on the edge of precipice with inflation trenchant, a waning export market, a stagnant manufacturing sector, political uncertainty and declining status as regional transport hub topped by a rickety banking sector that is an illusion of solid resilience clothing the reality of impending catastrophe.

    In many ways, Singapore has reached its upper limits and the only way now is down into the abyss. Much of Singapore's progress was initially built on manufacturing due to an economic model perfected by the genius of one itinerant World Bank adviser, A. Winsemius. If not for him, the earleir trading houses and banking networks established by the Brits and the geographical gift of location, Singapore would have been a failed state by now.

    Later, when others began catching up, Singapore gravitated towards financial services as a means to generate growth leveraging on its banking secrecy laws to establish itself as a money laundering centre par excellence, ask Andy Xie on that.

    Fast forward, with its pathetic attempts into bio-technology, high end electronics, and knowledge industries reaping spectacular failures, the government had to resort to speculative activities to drive the economy, leveraging on illegal inflow of stolen hoards of cash from Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, China to create artificial asset bubbles and by fostering an influx of tourists via casinos and its Universal playgrounds to support its services sector. Take away both, money laundering and those casino-eyed tourists, and Singapore will be a dead duck in the water.

    Part 2

    By my reckoning and modeling based on confidential data obtained by my insiders, Singapore will be a basket case by 2013 as I predicted in 2010 here with the Euro crisis being its ultimate undoing. My insider information from within the Singapore financial system points to several alarming facts:

    1. Singapore has the second highest exposure to Euro denominated loans and capital after Hong Kong, a significant portion of which are being repatriated in ever increasing quantities to repair balance sheets and shore up statutory reserves in the HQ.

    2. Contrary to the rosy pictures in the media, my perusal of several confidential documents provided me by reliable insiders from the Monetary Authority of Singapore reveal that big three Singapore banks are in for a crash with internal stress tests revealing the need for recapitalisation and probably, temporary nationalisation being an inevitable possibility if Euro funds are yanked outta the system in significant quantities. ( I see the beginnings of it already and predict an acceleration in Q2 and Q3. Loans to deposit ratio at OCBC and DBS in USD is 140/160:100 and quarterly earnings have been trending downwards

    3. With inflation at a persistent high (5.5% in december), real growth(versus nominal growth) has been anemic at best and cost of living concerns has become the bane of many an ordinary Singaporean given the shrinking purchasing power of the SGD.

    4.The data in my hands also shows an inordinate banking exposure to the property market that is roughly equivalent in % terms to those of US banks during their sub-prime crisis.

    5. Investment returns by Temasik and the GIC has been mixed at best, with the likelihood of substantial losses on investments in the Eurozone increasing by the day.

    6 (5) would have a significant impact on CPF payments with the problem of civil strife over the issue a looming possibility.

    My own prognosis would systemic financial sector collapse infecting the wider economy culminating in civil strife with PR foreign residents and minority communities like the Malays and Indians being the victims of local Chingkie umbrage with a coup d etat a likely possibility. However given a population steeped in NS and the urban configuration of the city state, there is a remote possibility of urban guerilla warfare breaking out if those NS gendarmes corp get their hands on weapons dumps. Alternatively, the Singapore govt may want to deflect the pressures by launching a first strike on Malaysia. It wouldnt do anyone harm if the MAF draw up an invasion plan or defensive strategies henceforth in anticipation of my prophesized events.

    There are other discomfiting data regarding Singapore's financial health which I cannot reveal due to confidentaility concerns that should be of concern to those involved in Iskandar.

    Having failed in their Batam foray. Spore are looking towards Johor to provide affordable housing and a lower cost of living for their increasingly agitated populace (the MRT proposal is actually designed to transport the workforce to and from Spore). Najib should have just let Spore rot into oblivion rather than entertaining LHL's recent desperate entreaties, the 4th floor Chingkie plant notwithstanding. Then the ghost would have been self-exorcised, and we would have had Spore for chop suey in 2013 or thereabouts.

    One could be forgiven in thinking that he is channelling Dr Mahathir who was royally cheesed off when Singapore pretty much refused his request for an emergency loan during the Asian financial crisis. That he made the request is a matter of public record.

    Who was the "slavemaster" then?

    Fast forward to 2012 and the warrior's claim to possess confidential documents about Singapore's alleged financial predicament.

    It is interesting that he has not posted these documents on any blog (with redactions to protect named individuals) so that independent assessments could be made of the documents' authenticity and provenance.

    Seems to me that there are equally big "ghosts" haunting Sabah and Sarawak.

    Why the warrior wannabe has not trained his sights on them is anybody's guess.

    Maybe he subscribes to the theory that there are gravy trains AND there are gravy trains. In other words, those that are politically acceptable and those that are verboten.

    It also depends on whose mouths are open wide to receive the gravy...

    Coming back to the situation in Johor, is it any different from the time of the Muhyiddin administration to that of the Ghani administration?

    What matters is that Johor has been a reliable "fixed deposit" for the powers-that-be.

    So, let's see, you are giving an unconditional pass to the verbiage spouted by warrior and others of his ilk?

    Let's get this point straight first, shall we?

    Because, as Rocky can attest to, both Jasper-san and yours truly haven't resorted to such colorful verbiage to get our points across.

    Who's being childish now, eh?

    As for the alleged or purported "Ghost of Johor", how about taking up the point that there were, and are, other Ghosts in other Malaysian states. Sarawak, for example, springs to mind.

    Or are some Ghosts more politically correct than others?

    And what of the fact that gravy trains and rent seeking will have winners and losers, and that it is the losers who whinge big time about the unfairness of it all.

    Heck, even Petronas has been dragged into the fray, as can be seen from the postings on some other blogs.

    Perhaps that is why the international oil majors have chosen to invest only in petroleum exploration contracts in Malaysia, whereas in Singapore (the alleged "slavemaster"), they have invested billions of dollars in refineries and petrochemical complexes.

    And if the Iskandar Malaysia zone becomes an economic hinterland to Singapore, is that wrong? Given the mobility of capital and the extensive complexity of modern supply chain networks, one shouldn't expect anything less.

    Why blame Singapore if Malaysia lags behind in the value-added race to secure foreign investments? If the Iskandar zone can't get it right, are we going to hunt for more scapegoats and do more buck-passing?

    Hey, maybe the Chingkies will get to watch it in Chingkieland, without Big Brother censorship!

    Since I was mentioned by Skilgannon 1066, lets see who is speaking the truth.

    The links i gave include a pdf to an academic journal, so much for "supposedly". If you cant debate, plastering "supposedly" isnt going to erase your stupidity.

    Maybe lying and twisting is in Jasper's and Skilgannon's blood and those of their ancestors and descendants.

    What "academic journal" are you talking about?

    The Online Citizen and the New York Times certainly aren't!

    "Who's being childish now, eh?

    As for the alleged or purported "Ghost of Johor", how about taking up the point that there were, and are, other Ghosts in other Malaysian states. Sarawak, for example, springs to mind.

    Or are some Ghosts more politically correct than others?"

    Response: Yes! who is being childish indeed? Look in the mirror to see your ghost.

    So indignant because Rocky brought up a Chinese ghost that is so friendly to Chinese Singapore but other ghosts like the one that says 'boo!" in Sarawak is a no-no because it supposedly benefits a Malay (another tall-tale on short legs)

    2. And what of the fact that gravy trains and rent seeking will have winners and losers, and that it is the losers who whinge big time about the unfairness of it all.

    Reply: Exactly!It is the losers who happen to be the Chinese who are whiners and whingers galore. So long as they sat on British laps and got a free lunch it was wine and dance. Now the train ride is over, its sour grapes and angst. Poor Chinese poodle, so used to cheating, free riding and stealing that it has forgotten how to bark for a living! Throw it a bone and see it moan.

    What a phony poodle you are!

    This IT Ghost is a Malay Ghost (Hantu Raya). Can change with a IT contractor...esok sudah tukar jadi Developer. LIM KANG HO is hantu cina looo, hantu india mana? kalau sudah ada hantu india. Baru lengkap kerajaan hantu 1 Malaysia.

    Hantu India itu Ganesh Kumar Bangah orang kuat Ghani dalam buat itu MSC CyberTower (Menara Sarawak) dan MSC CyberCities di Kulaijaya. Projek bilion-billion tapi tak siap2 sejak 2006.

  68. Jasper Bloodstone2:29 pm

    How did Ganesh Kumar and MSC get dragged into this allegedly unholy mess?

    Or are there Indian "ghosts" and Chinese "ghosts" haunting Johor?

    Doesn't the MSC office in Johor report to the MSC HQ in Cyberjaya? Aren't the big bosses in MSC aware of what's going in their Johor projects?

    Accusations are a dime a dozen!

    Strange your reading of history is.

    Maybe it can be excused as a byproduct of the Malaysian education system.

    Or a deliberate attempt to distract attention from a lack of facts by regurgitating the tired rhetoric of the racists of yore.

    Who first raised the issue of ghosts in Johor?

    Who first brought in the name of the alleged Chinese tai kor?

    As if tai kors are the exclusively limited to those of selected ethnicities!

    I note that the APH project in Johor has been rescued by a consortium led by CIMB.

    Is the paranormal involved in this too?

  71. Anonymous10:01 pm

    Since you pple raised it, let me comment with the little knowledge I have. Ganesh Kuamar Bangah is a stooge for our great Cardiff owner Vincent Tan. They promised to get the Kulai MSC Cyberport up and going since 2006. Until today, they have been giving all sorts of excuses after excuses. Not a single thing has taken off. Apparently no money!! MB Johor has sounded to them many times. The MSC Cyberport in Kulai is the biggest failure in Iskandar Malaysia today. Ganesh Kumar has bolted from Johor and is now permanently staying in KL - based in Berjaya Times Square with Vincent. But no one is writing.....can someone dig the shit out of this White Elephant?

    At least, Vincent Tan had the "brains" to make a few hundred million ringgit from his investment in Facebook!

    Something that all the "brains" in Khazanah failed to identify!

    Just think - if Khazanah had invested, say, US$500 million in Facebook then, their stake now would be worth a couple of billion US Dollars at least!

    That's the difference between a risk-taking entrepreneur and the biz-school civil service types that permeate Khazanah!

    Wanna talk some more, eh?

  74. Anonymous5:17 am

    KHAZANAH does not need to invest in this social evil
    Facebook to get that money. They have invested enough to get the billions. Get your maths correct first.

  75. Jasper Bloodstone4:59 pm

    Anon 1:17 PM

    How many billions does Khazanah have free & clear?

    Whereas a Harvard dropout like Zuckerberg is worth about US$28 billion on paper if the Facebook IPO is successful.

    And Facebook a "social evil"? That will be news to Najib and other Umno luminaries who have jumped on the social media bandwagon!

    It's a pity that there is all this crap being dished out about alleged hantus, banshees, goblins and fairies in Johor.

    Abd that the crap turns racist when supposedly well-connected bloggers bring out their own axes to grind.

    Johoreans are well aware of the "progress" in the state during the tenure of Ghani's immediate predecessor, who went on to higher political office on the strength of his acumen, perspicacity and intelligence.

    It's indeed strange how these hantus and their ilk lay dormant, quiescent indeed, during this person's term in office in Johor.

    And, if memory serves me right, this person did little to sever the umbilical cord between Johor and the citystate across the Causeway.

    Because, if he had, it would have been a whole different ball game in Johor!

  77. Anonymous2:13 pm

    Well ... if he is really a ghost, then he will be burn in HELL...

  78. Owhh really? Another CRONY of GHANI? This seriously can be use as CAMPAIGN to SWING vote from BN to PR.. A good topic for me to INVESTIGATE.. muahahaha
