Does anyone else think the Chow Brothers obtaining a back-door listing is funny?

It seems the Chow Brothers have permission for a ‘back door’ listing.

NBR Reports:

The Chow brothers are one step closer to listing their property portfolio after receiving NZX approval late on Friday for the reverse takeover of listed shell RIS Group on the alternative board [NZAX:?RIS].

NBR Rich Listers John and Michael Chow will transfer their 135-room Otahuhu-based Park Ave Residence complex into the shell company as a first step in moving most of their private $200 million property portfolio in the listed vehicle.

The medium-term accommodation property was opened last year and is now running at more than 80% occupancy.

?The elements of our property success have been quite simple: Buy right, manage well and hold long,? John Chow says. ? Read more »

How to deal with the Chows

The Chows are being a pain in the arse. This is how I think we should deal with the Chows.

Len should wander down there using the purest form of environmentally friendly transport, his skinny chicken legs, and quietly whisper to the Chows that if they don?t sort themselves out there will be numerous and unscheduled delays in planning, building inspections, compliance costs, reviews etc. Capice!

That might make them a little more reasonable. An unbuilt brothel is not earning, yet probably incurs expenses so they would be in a big hurry to get it built. A partially built brothel delayed because the Auckland Council can’t be arsed sorting stuff out for them would cost even more.

While they are at it in the attitude re-adjustment maybe they might like to quell the interesting rumours flying about town about them gloating about the pending failure of their building if the deal with Penthouse didn’t go through. Very interesting rumours from people with big mouths. This is what happens when you don’t pay your hookers.

Chow Brothers being dickheads

But will the girls get paid

There is much fuss and bother over the proposed brothel to be established over the road from the Sky Tower.

There is certainly a great deal of NIMBY-ism going on. The simple fact is that brothels are legal and if not across the road from another den of inquity in the form of a casino then where?

Do we now need to start considering an Amsterdam style red light district?

However a check of the key players suggests that this brothel may well not be in business for long.

Sex industry magnates are to open a “massage” club directly opposite the Sky Tower and flanked by residential buildings and shops.

In a move which has stunned nearby retailers, millions of dollars have been spent to turn the Palace Hotel pub, on the corner of Victoria St West and Federal St, into a new adult venue.

Wellington brothel owners John and Michael Chow bought the run-down building for $3.3 million, saying they hope to cater for the needs of visitors, gamers from the SkyCity Casino and tourists.

I’m wondering if the John Chow is the same John Chau in this article about Naked News Korea. My sex industry sources say that he is and that he is bad news;

After barely a month of operations, Naked News?Korea?is apparently winding up and with four of its remaining presenters expressing, ?We will fight to the end against?Naked News Korea for lying to us and the nation.?

Naked News Korea presenters Choi Sun Yi, Han Min Kyung, Lee Se Yeon and Jin Jae Kyung held a press conference on 30th July, ?We became presenters for Naked News Korea despite getting criticisms from our parents, relatives and friends. The owner, John Chau seems to be acting with only his own interests in mind and had operated the business with the intent of committing fraud. All of the money has went into his own pocket.?

Naked News Korea had ceased to provide news updates last week due to internal issues which included owning the 9 presenters and other staff about 2 -3 months of wages among others. 5 of the original nine presenters have already left the company, with only four remaining behind before everything erupted. All of the staff have no clue about what?s going on and could only say that they have been cheated by John Chau. The matter has been been bought to the attention of the Labor Ministry while the police have also started investigations into fraud allegations against John Chau.

And I wonder if the John and Michael Chow are the same John and Michael Chow who are sponsoring the Wellington Saints.

Sex Industry sources I have spoken to today confirm that these two are behind the new venture.

Massage – yea right. Sure seems to be an influx coming, it will be a haven for illegal immigrants – they will take the passports like they do at Mermaids Wellington and il Bordello and create a drama – the Wellington CIB are well aware of the games they play – but guess when you pay you can play – and the council must be getting a huge back hander.

The sex industry is not happy with these two, their business methods and the way they treat the girls. As I get more information I will update this post, but ot seems that there are not a lot of happy campers. The real owners of The Establishment ?and other major brothels probably won’t like the developments either so watch this space.
