Haze Problem in South-east Asia

Errant residents and firms must bear the brunt of law if they flout it now. In the past the laws only appeared on paper. Clearing land by burning is crime against humanity. No one must be immune from the law. Almost all those fires were started by local farmers and the plantation owners.  Licences of errant plantation owners must be revoked and the owners put in jail.…

Land Issues in India

Indian farmers discovered they had been cheated, because government officers had taken their farmed land, using powers of eminent domain laid out in India’s colonial-era land acquisition law, at a very cheap price. Then the acquired had been sold to private sectors at 14 times what the farmers received as compensation. The original price had been inflated 14 times. This is definitely an unsavoury sales tactic. The private companies must be allowed to deal directly with the farmers, to…

The Chinese American

What does it means to be Chinese in the US today with Beijing throwing its weight around. Is it true? The fact is, it is not true. Beijing is not throwing its weight around.  Beijing is not militarizing.  It is only telling the whole world what it own over 2000 years ago, and this property is still their property today.

These Chinese American are either born in the US or emigrated to the US and are holding US passports. They or their parents must have been disillusioned in their…

An Air Bed

Before you buy an air bed, you need to find out the following. How much time to have it inflated? Which pump is more suitable for you, a mechanical one or an electrical one? Which brand is recommended? And which make? For this air bed (Model : #67225; 75” X 54” X 8.5”), the pump is not included, though they confirmed there is an attached device which you can simply step on it and lift your foot away, continuously,  to inflate it. That attached pump for the unit I was testing was not…

The Way of ThoseThugs

When little kids are bragging about their almighty fathers, I don’t want to be involved. But I have met others who bragged on their fat salary. Club promoters, who pretended to be writers’ society members, were there to bring beautiful women to exclusive parties. Their club attracts big spending clients from among the young global elite, who are willing to spend thousands of…

Lead, Cyanide and Food Poisoning

Lead, Cyanide and Food Poising


It has been confirmed that children whose blood stream contain five times or more than their healthy peers are less intelligent, with lower IQs. They may have impaired kidney, anemia, severe stomachache, muscle weakness, and brain damage. The extent of damage depends on how long they have been breathing in lead-contaminated air, and consumed lead-contaminated water and food. Other sources of lead dust are from industrial paints, gasoline, and…

Greedy Retailers


When you are shopping, you are sure to come across offers which are too-good-to-be-true deals, just ignore them. It will be very expensive to buy those items. All those cheats use bullying antics towards aggrieved buyers, and if you are in a country which is corrupt, there is nothing you can do to have your money back, because those thugs have friends at high places. Economic corruption and political thuggery are most common in those countries.

On the whole, Singapore has a…

Industrial Effluent

Oil pollution disrupts sea and shore life for thousands of miles in Asia.  The beautiful coral reefs and mangroves, once existed at those areas are gone. Didn’t they have a chance to exist too?

A healthy earth will surely result in more healthy humans.  How many more years do we have to wait to see some concrete projects being put into practice?

The use of green engineering techniques can help to save marine environment, and also to protect against invasive species and provide…

Another Means of Cheat

People who develop obsessive craving, fierce longings, and burning ambitions that can never be satisfied are always frustrated by longing and wanting. This sleazy and cunning guy had been cheating, deceiving, and swindling others.

The following is a true story:

This old lady owned a piece of land. Her name was clearly stated on the land title.  One greedy guy, Basil Ah Lau, thought he could have that piece of land at a very cheap price.  He invited the husband of the lady for a…

Two Means of Cheating

Before you vote for a government, you ask if that group of

people can provide a clear and measurable benefit to the country. Does your society provide any benefit for the members? The tipping point is whether there is a better one to join elsewhere. With some callous and boastful guys, there will be lots of hot air. Don’t let them exploit you.

The Chinese Dilemma

This greed which seizes them tenaciously, is embedded in their subconscious part of the mind, for so long that their stubbornness and tenacity grow stronger every day. Even if they have accumulated 1 000000 tons of gold in the Swiss Bank, they would still be not satisfied and would not be happy if they have not cheated or swindled for just one day. It is indeed more thuggery than anything else. The overseas Chinese are squeezed in these countries.


Those evil racists want to…

Soh Tek


Janet was her name

She was the rose of the class

She picked and dumped boys

Just like we picked and threw away

the wild flowers.

Her best choice were the personnel from

the fighting services

She would boast of the number of men

queuing for her company

She wanted to prove to the world

that she was irresistible

She invited the top boy of the class

to give her tuition on Maths and…

The Working Ghosts



The French bastards had their rig built

in the U.S.

They paid USD over 400 millions

They never said it was expensive

Now they build it

in Asia for only USD 340 millions

And they complain every day that

it is cheaper to have the rig built

in the U.S.A.

The above was the comment from the

Asian local construction manager.




The truth was

Passport to Heaven


Passport to Heaven

There isn’t a better way than

marrying a female graduate from Shanghai

and then run your own enterprise there

for the rest of your life

you’ll never have to work for others

Husbands and wife

You can conquer the planets

She’ll only ask for one thing

that you’ll never have another woman

That’s still better

than remaining in Nanyang

cheating your company

by cooking…

Noisy People

It’s the best Chinese restaurant in the city

I had to alight at Mong Kok to patronize it

Every Sunday morning

There’ll be 800 people having breakfasts

all at the same time

This restaurant doesn’t accept credit card

There was no notice saying so

When you have finished eating the meal

suddenly you have no money to pay

They said: OK, you pay the service charge of $60

in addition to the food you had consumed

Kid's Story

Kid’s Story

They were reeling in front of me

with heads slanting, left hands

shaking under their balls and

right hands with a first finger pointing

at the heads, in revolving motion,

The bodies in wriggling movements

just like the rooster does

Circling the beautiful hen

before jumping on her

No alphabetical letters can coin the words

To reproduce the sounds which must be like

the noises of their male…
