A Day at the Beach in China.

Paul Chong                                      Tuesday, 31 January 2017

1 2 3China is BIG & I mean BIG. No less than 1.35 billion Chinese out of the world’s total population of 7 billion (2011) live in China. Each of its 23 provinces is like the size of any other country globally.
Can you then conceive in your mind what the crowd would be in the field of leisure & pleasure?

4 5There’s always something to be said about a country’s population . . .
Just look at the above pictures & below, then don’t ever complain about crowded beaches anymore!

6 7In China, they’ll need a GPS to find their umbrella or to locate the toilet!
When you miss or lose a loved one there at the beach, would you be able to locate him or her?

Can you see that pretty girl waving to you?

The mind boggles.

Where do they park their cars?
Do they have any lifeguards?
How the hell do you get a tan?
Just imagine what it would be like if everyone in the water peed?
Maybe that is how the Yellow River got its name!

Can you imagine our own famous Bondi Beach in Sydney?

bondi-beach-sydneyBondi Beach, Sydney
Surely it can’t be compared – two different levels of playing field.
Even though I am not much of a beach goer, I prefer Bondi.


Birth Control Pills & Grandma

Paul Chong                                      Tuesday, 31 January 2017

gty_birthcontrol_pill_mem_151112In a lighter vein today I like to share with you a delightful joke which I received in the mail. They say that laughter is good for the heart. It sort of draws a smile instead of a growl & makes the crowd roar with laughter.
The story relates a grandma to her young new doctor.

The doctor of an 80-year-old grandma had finally retired. Therefore, at the elderly lady’s next checkup, the new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her.
As the young doctor was looking through them, his eyes grew wide as he realized that the little old Grandmother had a prescription for birth control pills.
“Mrs. Smith, you do realize that these are birth control pills?”
“Yes, doctor. They really help me sleep at night.”
“Mrs. Smith”, he said, flabbergasted, “I assure you there is absolutely NOTHING in these that could possibly help you sleep!”
The old lady reached out and patted the innocent, young doctor’s knee:
“Yes, dear. I understand. But believe me. They definitely help me sleep at night . . .”

“. . . You see, every morning, I grind one up and mix it in the glass of orange juice that my 16-year-old granddaughter drinks!”

Don’t you think that she’s a very wise & crafty grandma?
Ha . . . ha . . . ha . . . LOL!

China’s Amazing Mega Projects & Megalopolis


16-billion-the-jiaozhou-bay-bridge-is-the-worlds-longest-cross-sea-bridge-stretching-nearly-26-miles-almost-the-length-of-a-marathonThe Jiaozhou Bay Bridge

By Paul Chong                               Sunday, 29 January 2017

China from an essentially poor agrarian country to its present status as an economic & industrial super-power is absolutely unprecedented & unmatched by any other country in the world . . . achieving it all in a matter of 3 to 4 decades. Putting it simply, it’s like leaping from having no phone to super smart phone. Historically, no other nation has ever done that.

It’s similar to walking on the moon as a giant step for mankind. Indeed China’s growth & progress have gone & impacted foreign shores by its win-win policy of mutual benefits sharing. Now technological & scientific advancements have propelled China to seeking out outer space, the moon & beyond.

In a quick flashback, China has been known & accustomed to monumental projects like the Great Wall, the Grand Canal, the Forbidden City & more recently the Three Gorges Dam . . . to showcase its engineering prowess and project its economic might.

Over the next 10 years, the China plans to move 250 million people — the equivalent of Indonesia’s entire population — into the country’s rapidly-growing mega cities. It has lifted out of poverty some 700 million to date.“China has always had this history of mega-projects,” said Huang Yukon, an economist and senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a think tank based in Washington.”
“It’s part of the blood, the culture, the nature of its society. To have an impact on the country, they’ve got to be big.”

From highways that span the continent, to, the largest wind power base in the world, to enormously popular airports, to new cities in the desert, China is showing what it really means to do big things.

Many of the projects are simply colossal, absolutely unbelievable & totally out of this world & cost exorbitant.

Huge superstructure projects could bolster China’s position as a manufacturing and trading powerhouse. In November 2016, the government said its freight rail link between eastern China and Spain had opened, allowing factory goods to reach Spain in just over 20 days. It is now the world’s longest rail journey, far surpassing the route of the famed Trans-Siberian Railway. Recently China’s freight trains achieved successful link between Shanghai & London.

35-billion-the-beijing-shanghai-high-speed-railway-is-the-worlds-longest-high-speed-rail-project-to-be-constructed-in-a-single-phaseThe Beijing-Shanghai High Speed Railway

The Beijing Shanghai High Speed Railway is the world’s longest high-speed rail project to be constructed in a single phase. ($35 BILLION).

The Jiaozhou Bay Bridge is the world’s longest cross-sea bridge, stretching nearly 26 miles — almost the length of a marathon. Bridge-building in China has become something akin to an Olympic event. In 2007, after China completed the longest sea-crossing bridge, in Hangzhou, the nation has regularly broken records. China now claims the longest bridge of any kind, the highest bridge and, in 2011, a new successor to the longest sea-crossing bridge, 26.4 miles long, in the eastern city of Qingdao. ($16 BILLION).

As a one-party state, China can easily muster the political will and financial resources to undertake such huge projects. The crux of the matter is that there is no undue bureaucratic delay in implementing & working through its undertaking.

In Dalian, a city of six million in the northeast, the proposed underwater rail tunnel to Yantai is just one piece of a master plan that includes a 163-mile urban transit system.

Work is also underway on what the city says will be the world’s largest offshore airport, a $4.3 billion development on an artificial island created with landfill, covering more than eight square miles.

Gansu Wind Farm
Located in the desert of northwest China, this is expected to be the world’s biggest wind turbine farm, with a capacity of 20,000 megawatts by 2020. ( $17.5 BILLION).

New Century Global Center
With 1.7 million square meters of floor space, it is the biggest building in the world, nearly three times the size of the Pentagon. ($2 BILLION).

Beijing Daxing International Airport
Groundbreaking has begun on Beijing’s third city airport, to be located south of the city, and due to open in 2019. ($13 BILLION).

Jiaozhou Bay Bridge
At 26.4 miles, the world’s longest sea-crossing bridge, with six lanes for car traffic. Opened in 2011. ($2.3 BILLION).

Shanghai Yangshan Deepwater Port
Built 20 miles out to sea, on a group of islands connected by one of the world’s longest bridges. ($18 BILLION).

South-North Water Diversion Project
A series of huge canals and pipelines that pump water from three different regions up north. ($80 BILLION).

West to East Gas Pipeline
A series of pipelines that ship gas to Shanghai and other big coastal areas. Major sections due to be completed by 2017. ($71 BILLION).

High-Speed Rail Network
The world’s most extensive high-speed rail system, now with more than 12,000 kilometers of track completed and speeds of up to 350 kilometers. ($322 BILLION).

The most fascinating mega projects to be developed will be two Megalopolis.


Megalopolis in the Pearl River Delta Region

By 2030, China plans to round up 42 million people from a nine-city region into one giant megacity in the Pearl River Delta. The population is expected to hit 80 million by the time construction ends. ($322Billion).

Up north, Jingjinji or Jing-Jin-Ji (JJJ), also known as Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, will become the national capital region of China. It is the biggest urbanized region in Northern China that includes an economic region surrounding Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei, along the coast of the Bohai Sea.

The new city should unite Beijing, Tianjin and the Hebei region into one supercity or megalopolis. China has approved a $36 billion railway plan to improve transport links between Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei.

Jing-Jin-Ji in China is so big it’s estimated to be the size of 17 Sydneys and, once completed, will be home to 130 million people, nearly three times the size of US population.

The massive project, which will see Beijing, the port city of Tianjin and the Hebei hinterland region connected by high speed rail, began two years ago, Chinese authorities have been talking about creating it for more than a decade.

This was born out of political pressure rather than economic prosperity. Over population, traffic congestion and high levels of air pollution have forced Chinese authorities to devise a new way of dealing with the growing problems, according to University of Sydney associate professor Duanfang Lu.

As a whole, each region will have its specific functions & responsibilities with Beijing essentially functioning on administration.

China is fast reshaping both domestically & globally the human, economic & political landscape. Having said all the foregoing, China with two-thirds of the world’s population & eighty percent of the world’s economy, will no doubt have both the ability & capacity to lead, transform & reshape the global economy. President Xi Jinping’s wise initiative & foresight in implementing the One Belt & One Road is a definite good move in the right direction. With the establishment of  the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), a new multilateral financial institution designed to bring countries together to address the daunting  task ahead.

It is predicted that by 2020 China will be number one in the world. At G20 Summit, Hangzhou 2016, it showed that

Taiwan A Geopolitical Pawn

By :Paul Chong                         Friday 27 January 2017

unknownMs Tsai Ing-wen, Taiwan’s President

Taiwan, once dubbed as “The Little Tiger” of Asia because of its early economic growth, has been running around attempting to impact its own unique Chinese-ness & claim its independence from mainland China. The worst crucial fact is for the Taiwanese to claim the extreme that they are not Chinese. This is most ironic when its root tongue, culture & heritage largely lie with the Fujian Province of China. Similar languages are spoken across Taiwanese Strait like Mandarin & “Minnanhua” (Taiwan Hokkien).

Historically & futuristically, Taiwan belongs to China as its 23rd province. This can never change. Historically the Chinese Communist Party’s core interpretation of the 1992 consensus rests on the idea that there is only one China.Taiwan belongs to China as its 23rd province.

China has always considered this unification with Taiwan as an internal matter & no outside intervention or interference will be taken lightly.

In 1945, following the end of World War II & the defeat of General Chiang Kai-Shek’s Kuomintang (KMT) Party by Mao Zedong, Chiang fled to Taiwan seeking refuge there with the help of US. In 1949, General Chiang Kai-Shek, who ought to be considered as China’s traitor, a rebel & renegade leader established the Republic of China (ROC) in Taiwan with his Kuomintang (KMT) cohorts.
Deng Xiaoping was known to have said, “There can’t be two tigers on the same hill.” Hence the “One-China Policy” instilled by China & accepted by the world at large, except for a very small minorities.

“People used to say Taiwan is a little rabbit running around two elephants,” said Alexander Huang, chairman of the Council on Strategic and War Gaming Studies, a Taiwanese think tank.
“No matter whether the two elephants are making war or love, Taiwan will be shaken by the elephants.”

In the case of the United States, the One-China Policy was first stated in the Shanghai Communiqué of 1972: “the United States acknowledges that Chinese on either side of the Taiwan Strait maintain there is but one China and that Taiwan is a part of China. The United States does not challenge that position.”

The One-China policy refers to the policy or view that there is only one state called “China”, despite the existence of two governments that claim to be “China”. As a policy, this means that countries seeking diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China (PRC, Mainland China) must break official relations with the Republic of China (ROC, Taiwan) and vice versa.
Whatever justification & rationalisation, all encompassing with political overtone attached, there can be but one China. By the same token, there can’t be Two US.

With reference to the 1992 Consensus, the Chinese Communist Party’s core interpretation rests on the idea that there is only one China. But Tsai Ing-wen still insists on her own contrary interpretation.

Beijing is ‘seriously concerned’ over policy. Taiwan has been warned about playing the chess game by leaning onto US. It has also been warned not to go to the extreme.

The way I see it, Donald Trump is playing his chips using Tsai Ing-wen, Taiwan’s leader, as a willing pawn in his chess game with China. Trump is saying China has taken out too much out of US. Now he wants to bargain for some if not all of it back.

Taiwan is definitely a bargaining-chip for Trump on China. The question is who will ultimately be the winner. Some in Ms. Tsai’s camp are uncertain about the consequences of a closer union with the US, and how China would react to improved relations. Others are in favour of a closer link to China.

“I fully understand the ‘one China’ policy, but I don’t know why we have to be bound by a ‘one China’ policy unless we make a deal with China having to do with other things, including trade,” Mr Trump said.


The Secrets of China’s Wonder

By Paul Chong                                                                                    Thursday, 26 January 2017images


  • China used more cement in 3 years than the USA did in a century.
  • Half of China’s infrastructure has been built only since 2000
  • China’s love for skyscrapers. 1260 buildings constructed which are above 150 metres
  • 95% of these structures built since 2000
  • Since 2010 China has spent $540 billions on railways
  • By 2020 it is projected that 60 per cent of the population will be urban dwellers
  • According to World Bank between 1981 & 2004, 500 million Chinese has been pulled out of poverty
  • According to BHP Australia, China is building a city equivalent to the size of Sydney every five days or the size of Chicago every single day.

No nations on earth can deny but help to wonder at the phenomenal growth & progress of China in the last 30 to 40 years . . . it’s magical, a modern miracle indeed. China did/does it all by itself without assistance. The CPC leaders like to attribute China’s success to its plans, policies & strategies . . . applying capitalism with essentially Chinese characteristics. China has taken the super-highways that no other nations ever did.

When Deng Xiaoping, the late Paramount Ruler of China, visited Singapore in 1978, Chinese leaders have looked for lessons in stewardship from Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore, a city-state with 0.4 percent the population of China and a landmass about half the size of Shanghai’s Pudong district. Deng had asked Lee Kuan Yew for his secrets & lessons of stewardship, its low crime rate, squeezy cleanliness & such robust economic growth.

“They think that the so-called Singapore model, single-party rule maybe can provide them something to maintain the Communist Party’s rule without losing too much in the process,” said Huang Jing, who has taught classes full of Chinese officials as a professor at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore.

Lee Kuan Yew in his humble reply advised Deng that China could attain success at an even faster rate than Singapore. After all, migrant Singaporean Chinese were all descendants from the lower strata of the Chinese society. The bulk of the Chinese population elite have always remained in China.

That point is most crucial. The wealth of a nation lies with the population mass of the nation. Given proper guidance, harnessing, inspiration & motivation, plans & programs, and most importantly swift implementation of work programs, success is assured. No question of bureaucratic delay, slow process of parliamentary debates & public comments to hinder getting work done.

Deng provided opportunities for business endeavours by opening up special economic zones in Quangzhou & Shenzhen. From this point onwards, China was on its way to surpass all other nations including the Singapore model. A outward policy & mindset were set in place.

Deng was credited to coin the slogan of “Forward March”. In Mandarin Chinese, 前 (Qian) sounds phonetically the same as 钱 (money). Hence onward focusing on “money”.

Without doubt, Chinese are the most assiduous in the pursuit of economic success – hardworking & working smart too, unrelenting with great capacity to bear hardship, most resourceful & innovative, very quick learners & a good high IQ.

Under the present Core Leader, President Xi Jinping, greater strides will be made. Open to the concept of globalisation, he discarded protectionism. In ancient China, it was their inward looking mindset that held back the nation. Reaching out to all parts of the world for trade & development started with the previous President Hu Jintao. President Xi continued to implement more outreach to Africa, Central & South America, Europe (East & West), Asian countries with the attractive offers on a “win-win” basis, total respect for all sovereignties, cooperation & sharing of economic benefits.

China does not believe in destabilising nations with regime to gain territorial footholds – often under the guise of democracy & freedom.China practices the theme of peace & harmony at home & abroad.

Mau Zedong, the Father of China, mobilised the so-dubbed “Weak Man of Asia” (by the Japanese) through the incredible Long March (October 1934 – October 1935) – a great test of human spirit, suffering, endurance. It was most unbelievable. The nation rose up as one, undivided & un- polarised, surging forward onto the stage of the world.

In this respect, General Chiang Kai-Sek should be ostracised, labelled as China’s traitor & a renegade general who escaped to Taiwan, the 23rd Province of China, with the help of the Americans.

President Xi Jinping’s wise implementation of the “Belt & Road” strategy will definitely go further in the building of Chinese dream. The strategy will regenerate China’s ancient past & further strengthen its economic growth & progress.

In a grand prix race, while others stall, you roar. Yes, China has its plans & policies put in the right place. Chinese who have been humiliated, suffered, deprived of the good things in life, can now stand tall with pride & dignity.

President Xi Jinping, implementing all the right strategies, is steady, cool & calm . . . unperturbed by the threats of the envious US, who like a wounded tiger is ever to pounce & prey on everyone . . . to make America great again.

China led &showed itself proudly to the world at the last G20 Summit in Hangzhou & the Economic Forum in Davos. President Xi ever ready with a warm welcome & friendly handshake.

China’s manpower of 1.3 plus billions will hold up China quite indefinitely. Thousands & millions are being trained, educated abroad returning with skills & technological knowledge to boost China’s economy.

With the sun setting in the west, the East will be enjoying greater sunrise in the days & years ahead & for always.

Heaven’s Road 天路 “Tian Lu”

President Xi Jinping & First Lady of China Peng Liyuan

Jacky Kennedy, the once famous US First Lady, got to the White House through her camera. Peng Liyuan attained her envious position as the First Lady of China through her beautiful soprano voice.

“Heaven’s Road” is a delightful well-known Chinese folk song describing the railway line connecting Qinghai and Tibet, as rendered by China’s First Lady, Peng Liyuan. Lyrics available in Chinese & English (on screen).

It’s a rare occasion & privilege to listen to her rich soprano voice which captured the heart of President Xi Jinping, leading her to be the First Lady of China. Together they have a daughter named Xi Mingze (习明泽) born in 1992, nicknamed as Xiao Muzi (小木子),
reading law at Harvard. Peng has been married to Xi Jinping for over 25 years.
Today she sings no more (perhaps in the privacy of home or bathroom). A most gracious lady who tours with her husband meeting up with foreign dignities.

In China she’s well esteemed, respected & honoured, devoting her time & energy to such welfare organisations concerning HIV & TB.

Peng Liyuan, a native of Yuncheng County, Shandong province joined the People’s Liberation Army in 1980, when she was 18 years old, and began as an ordinary soldier. Because of her vocal talent, Peng later performed during frontline tours to boost troop morale during the Sino-Vietnamese border conflicts.

Peng, a national treasure (like the panda), quickly learned to sing patriotic songs and, as a skinny 15-year-old teenager, she beat 10,000 other applicants for a place at her provincial art school. From there on her career progressed by leaps and bounds. First she was picked for the elite performance troupe of the local People’s Liberation Army.

Then she attended the Conservatory of Music in Beijing. According to the state media, she was a “three points and one line” student, meaning Peng’s daily life then only had three points – the music room, the canteen and the dorm.

Peng first performed nationally and came to fame during the earliest rendition of the CCTV New Year’s Gala in 1982, when she performed On the Plains of Hope.

On November 20, 2014, Massey University in New Zealand conferred Peng an Honorary Doctorate in recognition of her international contributions to performing arts, health, and education.

Showers of Warning Or Showers of Blessings


Paul Chong

It was a rainy day on Friday, January, 2017 when Mr. Donald John Trump (aged 70) was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. The inaugural address he gave contained nothing new from his campaign trail. It’s full of rhetorics ahead of realities. I got the impression of the western cowboy of the days gone by . . . quick on the draw . . . rapid fire . . . with the desire of being the fastest gun alive.

Nothing seemed right. He was repeating the Oath of Office placing his left hand on his choice of of a set of Bibles held by his wife Melania. I maybe wrong as I thought it would be more proper for the minister to do this.

He spent some US$200 million for the inaugural ceremony, more than any other previous presidents and the inaugural audience is only a fraction of two-million-strong of Obama’s. This time around no foreign dignities were invited. And I thought he was going to be thrifty in the light of dwindling economy.

Trump is gripped with the fear of US losing its primer position to China. Trump emphatically voiced his slogan “Make America Great Again” without relent. Time alone would prove the possible outcome, but believe you me it will be a monumental task & challenge. Verbal convention is easy to render, implementation is often problematic. With so many campaign promises, also without any previous political experiences, he may be stamping upon grounds where even angels fear to tread. Granted he’s a successful billionaire businessman but politics, international affairs & foreign diplomacy are entirely different.

Domestically, polarisation is setting the nation apart. For the first time in modern history, a day after the Inauguration, more than 1 million rally at Women’s Marches in Washington and around the world. Just where will this end, your guess is as good as mine.

The world, particularly China, is watching US or rather Trump closely. His protectionism policy rings out loud & clear putting all nations on their toes.

“We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs. Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength,” he said.

As it is, and always has been, US is easily the safest nation in the world. Geographically, politically, militarily no other nations globally can match US. To the north lies its friendly Canadian neighbour. To the south is its lesser superior Mexico. Out west US naval force virtually covers the whole Pacific Ocean. No European nations, including the African nations & the Middle nations would dare to declare war on US over the Atlantic Ocean. What better safety endowments could US ask for?

US military power is without challenge. With a thousand or so military bases encircling every corner of the world, nuclear arsenal unimaginable, air power & naval power, US not go around intimidating, threatening & encroaching upon other territorial land & seas.

Respect begets respect.
Friendship ensures friendship.
Terror results in greater terror.

Let there be Peace & Goodwill among mankind.

The Magic of Money

Time Is Money!

Paul Chong
Perth/Christmas Post 2016

Have you heard of the story of money performing magic? Money once set to use, flows, circulates & energises all economic activities, increasing its value manifold making the world go round.

It is the month of August; a resort town sits next to the shores of a lake. It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. It is tough times, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.
Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town. He enters the only hotel, lays a 100 dollar bill on the reception counter, and goes to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one.
The hotel proprietor takes the 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the butcher. The Butcher takes the 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the pig raiser. The pig raiser takes the 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel. The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the town’s prostitute that, in these hard times, gave her “services” on credit. The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 dollar bill to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she brought her clients there.
The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 dollar bill back on the counter so that the rich tourist will not suspect anything. At that moment, the rich tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and takes his 100 dollar bill, after saying he did not like any of the rooms, and leaves town.

No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.

Money is that convenient means of exchange for goods & services. Money can be earned. All of us have equally about 40 years of economic life to become financially independent.. Sadly in the end a lot of us would miss our financial boat in life.

However, we must be able to spend the money earned; otherwise it’s no good to us.Once a very rich man died leaving his will & making his widow promised to bury him with all his worldly possessions. When asked by her friend after the funeral if she did keep her promise to her dear departed husband, the widow answered, “Yes I did. I wrote him a cheque to be cashed in his next life.” Amen.


Keeping In Touch


Our paths in life may not cross again
Such is the nature of life
Time & space have a way of separating us & events
They can be so cruelly unkind
Like the flow of water in a river or waterfall
Once passed it’s gone forever gone
As with life’s love & laughter, romance & adventure
Treasure every leisure & pleasure
Life’s journey always come to an unexpected end
Life’s story albeit the best there is
It’s both fleeting & never quite a bliss
Time & tide wait not for thee
Believe you me!

Can Any Other Than a Malay Be the Prime Minister of Malaysia?

Who said that a Chinese, Indian or any other can’t be a Prime Minister of Malaysia? What’s to stop him? Here’s the Constitution: Article 43 – Appointment of the Prime Minister and the cabinet[edit]
The Yang di-Pertuan Agong is required to appoint a Cabinet to advise him in the exercise of his executive functions. He appoints the Cabinet in the following manner:

acting in his discretion (see Art. 40(2)(a)), he first appoints as Prime Minister a member of the Dewan Rakyat who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the Dewan. There is no Constitutional requirement that the Prime Minister must be of any particular race or religion;[17] and
on the advice of the Prime Minister, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong appoints other Ministers from among the members of either House of Parliament.

Lest I forget, from the list of Malaysian Prime Ministers . . . from Tunku Abdul Rahman to Najib, who can you claim to be legally or biologically a “PURE MALAY”? From Siamese blood to Bugis & Indian, you can see a stream of foreign blood in their heritage!
