Re: 'Quarantine' in US

Shelter in place is not a federal order. As of today, there are 8 states in US who have not imposed it yet.

Re: 'Quarantine' in US

Shelter in place meaning you only go out for essential e.g. grocery shopping. It is all done voluntarily. Initially, there were still some people out as the gravita had not sinked in yet. We do not point guns at them but keep ramming up the message. Eventually, we all got the message and our downtow...

Re: Expats behaving badly

In fact, are there any other countries where "foreigner commits mild anti-social act' is a news genre? No-one comes across well. Everyone is awful. I do not see the wisdom for those citizens from the free world to settle in SG. Unless you have married a local spouse and tied down by family. And if ...

Re: China welcomes back diaspora

“I think Hong Kong will return to China,” he told me. “They have the guns, the jails. We have nothing here in Hong Kong. All we can do is protest peacefully and try to make the world pay attention.”......... “What you’re doing is writing an obituary,” Bao, the New Century publisher, told me when we...

Re: China welcomes back diaspora

Only then would Lam be allowed to return to work in his bookstore — but as a mole, the “eyes and ears” of the investigation. He would report who bought which books, documenting each client and sale through text and photos. Lam agreed to the proposal immediately. “After being in prison for so long,”...

Re: Malaysia - corrupt scumbag Najib out and Mahathir (92 yo) is in!

First of all, what I am going to say is only meant for sharing. Sharing of ideas and opinions and i am also open to what others have to say. Either from the left or the right. I don't want to play God and I am not trying to tell people how to live and think. This identity politics is driving and div...

Do you think he has the ability to exercise free will under CCP's captivity? Wondering if he will appear on the radar later with a scripted apology :-k .

The plot thickens. What is next? A champagne-popping emoji after he emerges from re-education? Joke aside this is serious matter. He has resigned from the Interpol whilst in captivity. How is that even possible? And does China have any more credibility left? https://www.yahoo.com/news/missing-interp...

Re: Malaysia - corrupt scumbag Najib out and Mahathir (92 yo) is in!

This reminds me of bookseller Gui Minhai, a Swedish national (originally from China) who was kidnapped right under the nose of two Swedish diplomats who were escorting him. Who shall be next :-k ? And remember now, Gui is no longer a Chinese citizen but a Swedish one. China has effectively violated ...

Re: The Human Story

Meanwhile in China...... there is this general lack of empathy and respect for all life forms there. Sigh!

Re: Malaysia - corrupt scumbag Najib out and Mahathir (92 yo) is in!

Exactly. Beware of strangers bearing gifts. There is a reason why these countries have difficulty getting loans elsewhere. China is their only option and she will capitalize on the opportunity to exploit. My point being that China is learning very slowly that she can't get her way on the internation...

The bad news coming out of Sri Lanka has put other countries on alert. That, plus Mahathir's warning about the emergence of a new form of economic colonialism has forced China to change its tune. China is now offering loans that are interest free. The push back from the global community is working
