Atlantis Dubai proposal: Elva Hsiao & Low Taek Jho - originally reported by Apple Daily Taiwan - 萧亚轩被大马富商刘德祖求婚影片Wedding Proposal by Low Taek Jho to Elva Hsiao

Flamboyant billionaire Jho Low is back in the news with another story of an extravagant but futile attempt at wooing the heart of a major celebrity.

NONE Taiwanese newspaper Apple Daily broke the news after coming across a video recording reportedly documenting Low's proposal and his target - famous Taiwanese mandopop singer Elva Hsiao.

The daily cites a video entitled 'Atlantis Engagement, Dubai', uploaded a year ago to video-sharing site,, by British-based professional photographer Peter Rear.

The video does not mention who the two subjects are but contains a caption stating: ‘Surprise engagement proposal rumoured to cost of £1m (RM4.9 million).' but the rumoured cost is of little surprise as the event took place on a private beach at pricey hotel resort Atlantis, The Palm - the most famous hotel on the island of Palm Jumeirah, off Dubai.

The couple enjoy their meal while being serenaded by a harpist and a violinist playing a violin studded with what appears to be precious stones.


Breaking the romantic tone, several parachutists descend from the sky and land on the beach to present Hsiao with jewellery made by Swiss luxury brand Chopard that make Hsiao moved to tears but the outrageous extravagance was reportedly not enough to move Hsiao's heart.

Apple Daily says it understands that Hsiao (right), 33, rejected the proposal and only saw Low, 31, as a "little brother" and also reported that a spokesperson had denied claims that Low had proposed to Hsiao at the event, stressing that it was just a "romantic dinner".

Penang-born Low, whose real name is Low Taek Jho, is reportedly part of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's inner circle, is best known for his attempts to woo American socialite Paris Hilton and hard partying habits with his A-list friends in the United States.

Low is the son of a Penang tycoon who reportedly has close links with Middle Eastern investors.

Locally, Low is reportedly involved with the Terengganu Investment Authority (TIA) - now known as the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) - and UBG Bhd, which is owned by the family of Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud.
NONEThe chubby-looking Low got into the media spotlight two years ago after reports about his extravagant partying with controversial Hollywood actress Paris Hilton (left) hit the front pages of newspapers locally and globally.

The video at Vimeo has since been taken down but not before it was managed to be downloaded and uploaded at Youtube. ;)

Here it is:
