Najib Razak Placates Wife with Chanel Watch

We all know Najib Razak (left) only too well. 

Anything that lands on BossKu's lap that smacks of impropriety – he can quickly deflect and blame it on somebody else. 

So last Tuesday, the ex-prime minister who was testifying in the SRC International trial where he is facing counts of criminal breach of trust, money laundering and abuse of power – had put the blame on his darling wife for having to spend $130,625 (RM466,330.11) on a Chanel watch. 

He had claimed he bought it for Rosmah Mansor (right) to placate her after he was obliged to cut short their Hawaiian holiday in 2014 – in order to return to the country to visit flood victims in Kelantan. 

The issue of Najib's credit card spending in Honolulu, USA on December 22, 2014 had been raised again when the Pekan member of parliament was questioned by his lead counsel Muhammad Shafee Abdullah. 

The latter had called on Najib to explain the watch purchase and his client then went on to elaborate on events which led to the huge spending using funds which allegedly flowed into his accounts from SRC International Sdn Bhd. 

Yes, Najib is a big spender. Additionally, it was reported that he had also bought RM3.3 million gifts for Noor Abdulaziz Abdulla Turki Al-Subaie, the wife of Qatar’s former prime minister after bumping into the couple in Sardinia, Italy in August 2014. 

For Najib, malu apa? The fellow is brazenly profligate, highhandedly extravagant and indecently shameless! 

On Monday, I made a timely return to 3rd Mile Square in Old Klang Road, KL to participate in the Money & You Toastmasters meeting as a General Evaluator. 

It has been a long while – but I am glad I went yesterday because it was a fun meeting. 

You know it will pan out into something wonderful when the Toastmaster started off proceedings by firing rapid-fire volleys of joyful cheer – her maiden attempt too – and everyone present were soon happily embracing the enlivening ebullience she lavished on us so generously. And when you follow this up with good speeches and good evaluations, you have a first-class meeting. 

‘Twas a meeting overflowing with good energy and good vibes that turned us all into a blithesome band of merry Toastmasters and mirthful guests. Thanks to How Yee and Amy Lim for the invite!
