Puan Sri Pauline Chai was the beauty queen who won the Miss Malaysia title in 1969.
Responding to her husband’s suit that their case be heard in Kuala Lumpur, Pauline told the High Court today that she has no interests in Malaysia and thus her divorce proceedings must rightfully be heard in London.
From KL to Perth to Victoria to London
Pauline said she emigrated to Western Australia in 1980.
She added that her family later moved to British Columbia, Canada in 1989.
The socialite’s more than 1,000 pairs of designer shoes are stored in an English manor in Hertfordshire, the London matrimonial home where the Tan Sri and Puan Sri now reside.
“I love England and everything English,” Pauline had declared to the British newspapers.
Her husband Khoo Kay Peng is a staunch Christian who supported City Harvest Church pastor Kong Hee.
Birds of passage
Some Chinese in Malaysia are like a flock of migratory birds just flying through.
Some are hypocrites of the highest order. That is how you can get Hannah Yeoh – whose application for Permanent Residence (PR) in Tasmania, Australia was rejected – suddenly turning around to fashion herself Anak Bangsa Malaysia-Malaysian First.
The Boat People who sailed to Australia as refugees in the late 1970s and 1980s were Vietnam’s Chinese minority. They were economic migrants of ethnic Chinese descent but nonetheless reported in world news as Vietnamese (because they held Vietnam citizenship).

Chinese always talk about going to greener pastures
South East Asia is home to a large Chinese diaspora. Up till the time of the Kuomintang government in China, overseas Chinese were still regarded as Chinese nationals.
And until the time of the Japanese occupation of Malaya, the Chinese here had directed their loyalty to Kuomintang and the motherland. Hence you find the Sun Yat Sen monuments (below) and memorials in the Straits Settlement states of Penang and Singapore.
Kuomintang founder Dr Sun was the first president of the Republic of China, founded after the last emperor of the Qing Dynasty was overthrown.
Claiming to be “Anak Bangsa” wherever
In the late 19th century, the Chinese population in Vietnam spiked exponentially. They were the merchant class there as elsewhere in South East Asia. See also, Chinese are richest billionaires in Indonesia and the Philippines
The Sino-Vietnamese were Cantonese and Teochew speakers. Yet you shouldn’t be surprised if, in the period before they bailed out of their adopted country, they loudly styled themselves Anak Bangsa Vietnam.
The Yeoh types – poster below – will apply for citizenship anywhere, even Russia, but still attempt to pull their Firster stunt in the temporary host country. In this country, they want to be the ones to determine what our national identity is, e.g. Lim Kit Siang’s proclamation of “Malaysian Malaysia”.
Difference between Citizen and National
There is citizenship and there is nationality.
The ex-Miss Malaysia previously had Malaysian citizenship but she never truly embraced the Malaysian nationality.
Nationalists are the persons having a strong identification with the land. Pauline Chai has none as – expressed in her own words – she has only one friend in Malaysia and no interests at all in this country.
Puan Sri Pauline held Australian citizenship, the country where her two youngest children were born. And then when her family lived in Canada, they held Canadian citizenship.
Currently she is living in the UK.
As you can see, citizenship for the overseas Chinese can change a few times throughout one’s life.
Would Hannah have worn tudung in Tasmania?
A most amazing spin to come from the Porky Principle (“Bak Kut Teh is not pork”) is that the tudung in Malaysia is not an exclusive identity marker for Malay-Muslim women.
The Yahudi Yeohs argue that their forefathers (foremothers) who lived in Tanah Melayu at the turn of the last century wore tudung too and hence the headgear can be considered an inherited Chinese customary dress.
Aside from rubber tappers, the Chinese women immigrants in Malaya who panned ore in the tin mines and those who carried bricks at the construction sites (see painting below) could be said to have been wearing a sort of ‘tudung’.
This historical rationale is the spurious reason provided by evangelistas to justify why the DAP politicians choose to wear tudung when they Occupy the mosques and suraus. The YBs are only practising Chinese culture passed down through the generations, the evangelistas claim.
They are a most astounding people in the kind of stories that can come out from their mouth.
Melayu juga pendatang, kata Yahudi Yeoh
This business of “pendatang” is not just a question of semantics. Instead it goes right to the core of national identity when these YYs audaciously declare that Malays are immigrants too.
If the public can be made to believe that Malays have the same pendatang status as Chinese and Indians and other foreign arrivals to these shores, then Article 153 on the Malay Special Position automatically goes out the window.
The DAP Firster politicians are willing to jeopardize Chinese schools with their “zero Chinese” rhetoric – see @hannahyeoh tweet above – in order to forward their Ubah paradigm that at the same time, there are “no Indians too” and “no Malays” either.

Such sneaky flers
Another half of their strategy is to stake the “colour blind” claim that the only keturunan found in the country is Anak Malaysia – which is not Indian, not Chinese, not Malay but a “Beyond Race” concoction of their own cooking.
The “colour blind” article – see above – was penned by the J-Star‘s then managing editor Wong Sai Wan.
Note that while Hannah Yeoh rejected the classification (according to Race) of her child as an “Indian”, she raised no objection to the classification of Shay Shay (according to Religion) as a “Christian”.
The conniving Firsters are so clever at cherrypicking. What suits them is given the nod and what is not in their favour is rubbished.

Ah Jib Gor is the problem
How have the Yahudi Yeohs been able to get away with their propaganda? Like for instance, branding Umno as “racist” and “extremist”.
Well, the “lembik” Umno president is the root cause. Blame him.
Look at the headlines below in The J-Star to see how the opposition have successfully seized the narrative. EvangeliSTAR associate editor M.Veera Pandiyan writes that “biologically, ‘races’ of genetically homogenous people have never existed”.
In short, Veera claims that race is “a myth”.
Sack MCA already, please!
Najib and Muhyiddin Yassin having to deny the charges of racism already puts them on the defensive.
Ah Jib Gor has permitted his political opponents to take total control of the English and Chinese media.
Sin Chew deputy editor-in-chief Lim Sue Goan in his column last month, for example, wrote about Umno’s “racist politics” while last December complaining about “the racist direction of Umno” – see screenshots and url links bottom of page.
Umno is continually put on the back foot while it is the opposition that is constantly launching the offensive. The BN desperately needs a war general, not a bangsawan gentleman APPEASER as the coalition chairman.
