Trump Cheer Leading China Bashing Haha.....

China bashing has been a favourite past-time of the west for a long, long time now. Now Trump is cheer leading them...haha! How nice, for supposedly the most powerful man in the world!

This obsession speaks volumes of the west's, and particularly the United States', frail psychology. It almost smells of a primeval realisation - a realisation that the west's and particularly America's position as the preeminent leader of the world today is an aberration of history.

In fact, the United States is a newbie to world preeminence. The Middle Kingdom had been there for much of the past millennia or two. The big difference is that one is ignorant and bossy and other knew better.

China's rise today is a reassertion of their past world preeminence. Like it or not, you can't stop it. Or you should try. China has more experience than the rest of the world in the business.

It now has influence in Africa, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Burma. Even the Philippines is dumping their taiko and cosing up to the Middle Kingdom.

And Great Britain, America's 'traditional ally' weren't listening to their big brother either, preferring to join the AIIB rather than being left out. And the Germans too, didn't give a damn!

The Land down Under is waiting. It can either continue dreaming of being the unofficial American Asian sheriff or it can wise up. Anyway, Australia's economy owes a lot to the Middle Kingdom. Period.

Even Bolehland is caught up in the web. It is just unfortunate that Najib sought and obtained multi billion ringgit deals with the Middle Kingdom in less inspiring circumstances.

For all the China bashing, the world is turning to the Middle Kingdom.

Trump can do all the cheer leading for all he wants. And if he wants a big fight with China, he should go ahead.

The rest of the world is watching. The pop corn is out.

The show begins.

Or not!

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
