Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive.In the posting the Who is the sixteen million ringgit man?, mentioned was of the six million ringgit man.
We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster.
It seemed there is rumour of another six million ringgit man in the making. It is a smaller version of the sixteen million ringgit man.
The picture of Steve Austin as played by Lee Majors in the original TV series resembled the said six million ringgit man. He has a handsome mouthache and like Lee Major, he has a beautiful and gorgeous celebrity wife.
Lee Major was once married to the beautiful and gorgeous pin-up actress Farrah Fawcett. She divorced the bionic man for Ryan O'Neal later.
The six million ringgit man did get his beautiful wife a proper and paid for home. Not unlike one politician that got his celebrity wife a house as wedding present but hutang and now unable to service CIMB but blaming it on Dato Najib.
The six million ringgit man is said to be under investigation for corruption to that tune.
The former Bank officer is known in the corporate circle as a professional proxy for politicians. His first foray as a moonlighting businessmen was to con customer in Saudi Arabia into supplying something ample in Malaysia.
As the saying, "We can make him better", it hold true to this Malaysian "bionic man". He was never good as a businessmen. But being proxy made life better for him as he move up the social circle.
Initially, it was to a one Dato Dr Deputy Minister that made his name appear as shareholder of a public listed insurance company. Since he was related, the proxy agreement could be rather loose. He ran off with the company when the poor fella was politically in trouble.
Then he became a proxy to a Tan Sri Minister and they did something big together.
Both have left Ministerial office but one have move up the ladder. Rumour has it that he is a proxy to one corporate Tan Sri. To say the Tan Sri is not politically linked, it is most unlikely as he is linked, close friend and have family linked to a Tan Sri politician.
There is no known business link though.
The six million ringgit man have been spotted at a political event recently and his wife have been vocal and taking side. It is most unusual for a celebrity in the entertainment world.
As businessman, it is unusual for the six million ringgit man to take a political position.
He has many political connections with all type of politicians from both sides. Maybe it is more accurate to say all sides of the political divide. His appearance with politicians on the other side is made known and visible.
Not only that, the six million ringgit man berbesan with a known leader.
This time he took side because he maybe in for a real trouble. His name appeared somewhere and is under investigation for an IPP deal. That explains the quote, "We have the technology. We can make him better than he was." At least, financial wise.
If it sticks, luck will run out on him and he will end up "barely alive". It is time to stop here or there will be too much disclosed. Many will attempt to court his beautiful wife away.
Sorry honey, he was never a good man for you.
