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.…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

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.
This attachment is Page 1 of Singapore Society of Writers magazine, when Mr. Kutty was the President. After his demise about…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

you don’t have to spit on…Continue
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
there were working…Continue
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

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

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…Continue
