Before I blog about the former Miss Malaysia and her money being parted, here’s a quick look at the questionable ‘niat’ behind the way people dress, including the said ex-beauty queen.
First, to illustrate how jaw-dropping a starlet’s fashion sense can be – the photo gallery below is of American celebrities at the Emmy Awards and other gala events. What is the intention behind their dressing like that? Attention seekers?
Trend of Chinese doing the tudung thing
I’m not putting up any of Miss Malaysia 2008 Soo Wincci’s bikini shots but below is a montage of her two poles apart style of dressing.
I don’t know why Chinese attention seekers so like to pull the tudung stunt.
While for the Muslim woman the tudung is a serious religious obligation, for the Chinese “celebrity” (as how Soo styles herself), it is a photo ops to win Malay fans.
Most Malay women who cover their hair will furthermore keep to modest apparel at all times. Whereas Chinese women who are not Muslims may posture as a hijabista one minute and revert to type the next.

Sponsors reportedly pulled out of Soo’s concert
Soo Wincci courted the limelight last month when she uploaded to YouTube a video clip calling on Najib Razak to resign.
She is an aspiring singer who will be holding her debut concert tomorrow at the KLCC. She complained to the media – ‘Soo Wincci claims Oct 31 concert sponsors pulled out in response to video clip’ (The J-Star, 9 Oct 2015).
Her video disparaging Najib – (minute 4:01) “kepada Najib … tolonglah bolehkah anda sebagai seorang dewasa sila turun daripada pentas dan memberi ruangan kebebasan kepada semua rakyat Malaysia” – was an opportunistic publicity stunt akin to “Ini kali lah”.
The Chinese really thought Putrajaya was within their grasp on 5 May 2013 when they went out to vote.
This ex-beauty queen appears also to believe that Najib was within an inch of being ousted when she added her voice to the clamour with her “THIS IS THE TIME” message to the Malaysian public, accompanied by Bersih rally footage and blaring vuvuzelas.
The ‘Soo Winnci Desak Najib Letak Jawatan’ clip – below – was uploaded to YouTube by the J-Star‘s bahasa Melayu publication mStar.
SNIP, SNIP, SNIP – The Scissors strikes again!
Singer wannabe and her costly misfire
It would seem Soo had wanted to cash in on Najib’s fall (in terms of winning popularity) but she evidently miscalculated.
Now the ex-beauty queen claims that she has to bankroll her concert by putting in her own money – half a million ringgit – after the pullout by sponsors.
But even if all the tickets to her concert are sold out, Soo has admitted that she will be unable to recoup her production costs. To top off her woes, Malaysian concert goers are not buying – the sales have been lukewarm at best.
An earlier story (6 Sept 2013) in The Heat reported that Soo took a loan of RM1 million to finance her break into the music industry. In the same month, there’s also her interview [story archived in AsiaOne on 18 Sept 2013] — ‘Men pay almost RM1 million for “playthings”: Soo Wincci’ — with The J-Star‘s lifestyle mag The Daily Chilli.
Like The J-Star, the DAP politicians have been promoting Soo and her upcoming concert. Birds of a feather flock together.
But what we need to take away from this affair is that the Chinese women who exploit other people’s religion are really a piece of goods. It is the non-Muslim Chinese tudung wearers yang dok mengada-ngada.
