Malaysian businessman Low Taek Jho (aka Jho Low) has gained the world’s attention for his alleged links to the infamous 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) financial scandal.
While the elusive businessman is presumably hiding somewhere in China right now, his presence is still quite prevalent in Malaysia. Following the success of ‘Billion Dollar Whale’, the bestselling book documenting his alleged involvement in the 1MDB scandal and his outrageously lavish lifestyle, Jho Low is now being featured in… Christmas merchandise?!
No, we’re not joking.

Local gift store Apom (A piece of Malaysia) recently took it upon themselves to come up with some pretty unique Christmas gifts and cards centralised around the infamous businessman, and it seems like it has become pretty popular among locals. Their new “Jholly Christmas Collection” features products like;
1. A ‘Find Jholly’ book
Inspired by “Where’s Wally”, this edition encourages readers to find Jho Low among a large crowd of people. Priced at RM30, it could make for a nice gift to any politically savvy friends out there!
2. Tote bag
We guess this one’s quite self-explanatory. It seems like this particular item in the collection is a hit because it was previously sold out! However, this RM35 tote bag is now back in stock as of today (19th November).
Apom is even selling Jho Low-themed T-shirts with two different slogans on them, so you can choose between “Spend it like you stole it” and “Lari, Party, Jholly, Repeat”. All shirts are selling at RM50 each, according to their website.
Fancy novelty mugs instead? Well, good news, because Apom has quite a wide selection of Jho Low-themed Christmas mugs for you!
At RM35, you can choose mugs that have the following slogans written on them; ” ‘Tis the season of giving… back”, “Drink it like you stole it”, and “Money, Party, Jholly, Repeat”.
5. Greeting cards
Not too keen on the mugs or apparel? Then why not get a simple Christmas card instead? Apom is selling Jho Low Christmas cards with the sayings, “Jho! Jho! Jho! Merry Christmas!” and “Wishing You A Billion Dollar Christmas” priced at RM8 each.
If you want a simple coaster for your drinks, why not get in the festive mood by getting a pack of 5 Jho Low-themed coasters this Christmas for RM35? ‘Tis the season, after all! 😉
