Theng Bok, are you campaigning for Chua Soi Lek or for money?


According to Malaysiakini, Theng Bok who heads the Save MCA campaign is a maverick.

On checking my little kamus of Oxford dictionary, ‘maverick’ also means an undisciplined person.

Maybe Malaysiakini knows something about Theng Bok that the public do not?

Anyways, I was surprised at a Merdeka minum-minum session yesterday when a friend who happened to be an MCA Central Delegate (CD), asked me if I heard of rumours that Theng Bok is using the Save MCA campaign as a front.

Huh? What front? Isn’t it to save Chua Soi Lek?” I asked.

“You, ah. So straight. Never question, one. Always take at face value what newspapers analysts write. When are you going to learn to read between the lines, friend? Aiyoooooo,” said CD while shaking his head disapprovingly.

Eager to shift his disapproval elsewhere, I soothed him. “Why do you think he has an ulterior motive?” I asked.

“You think Theng Bok is so selfless, meh? Think! The last time he ‘saved MCA‘, Ong Ka Ting got booted out. Why?”

Think! Why is he saving MCA again and calling for EGM? Why?” CD is really getting excited now.

Please tell? I’m really lost now.” said I, defeated.

CD rolled his eyes towards heavens and got himself together. “Benefits, my friend.”


“Aiyooooo. Got people do something for nothing, meh?” “Theng Bok is a lawyer, right?”


“Theng Bok is having lots of construction developer friends wanting clearance for this and that from ministries. The minister don’t give, he’s in shit la, deal cannot get done, no approval, no money in, understand?”

“Last time minister no give, this time also no give, he’s more in shit, business more worse, developer friends no more confidence in him, his cable tak boleh pakai, lor,” CD made a thumbs down sign.

But Theng Bok said its for MCA he is saving.”

“Ceh! Where got people do something for nothing?” CD exclaimed.

“Got people sponsor a campaign for him to get famous and can somemore help get back his developer friends confidence, like luck falling from the sky, lar.”


P/S: I think Theng Bok should quickly make an SD (Statutory Declaration) to save himself. Cannot do like Andy Lau hiding under those umbrellas. And its very ungentleman to take advantage of Chua Soi Lek’s predicament.


  1. You Chinaman have always been like that. Nothing new maaaa…..

    • Even though I do not agree with your claim that “For money even girlfriend also can sell” (referring to Chinese), I still like to remind you that there are worse deeds than selling girlfriend for money. First one that comes to my mind is ‘incest with own daughter’. I wonder who are the people who like to commit this crime.

  4. These are vultures groomed the BN mindset. All these are idiots competent in taking opportunities in a crisis like this. Let MCA be history and these idiotic vultures will die a natural death.

  5. I wouldn’t say all are bad in BN.

    In my personal opinion, some are good – like Shahrir Samad, Ong Tee Keat trying to continue to be good, previously Ong Ka Ting good but too laid back that’s why kena kicked out (you check out the Kementerian Perumahan during his time, he really made it better than Ting Chew Peh who messed up big).

    The bad ones are the makan duit rakyat ones.

  7. “Theng Bok, are you campaigning for Chua Soi Lek or for money?”
    Silly question, really. Whatever MCA people do, 99% of the time it’s for money. The only relevant question is whether it’s for big money or not so big money.

  8. This Theng Bok (sounded kerapok) is really despicable. Seems like he dont who get killed as as he get more money. That is why MCA must be changed – to get rid of scumbags like him.

    • Please, I’m an advocate of non violence. I’m sure your using the word ‘killed’ should be correctly termed as ‘political careers killed’.

      Careful with our words as words show up our true character, dear.

  9. Makes perfect sense. But aren’t they mounting a futile campaign cos if Ong Tee Keat goes down MCA does down and OUT. whatever Chua Soi Lek and the rest may say, and whatever the past presidents and their hangers-on may wish Port Klang (and Free Zone) and the Selangor Govt are central to MCA (and BN’s) political health. If nothing comes out of the PKFZ probe and/or OTK is ousted we are back to Square-One-Minus-One. Pakatan in Selangor will have a tougher time until the next GE, if it survives till then. But if it does, be sure BN will become history for the next 30 years or more.
    Don’t believe? Look at US of A, look at Japan, look at Taiwan, look at some of the South American countries, at Australia. People change with change, the “scales” fall from their eyes and they see the light.
    We’ll see!
