    Default 'Do you bring your LP out today'

    Anyone saw the Straits Times today?
    'Do you bring your LP out today' - was quoted by Taiwan's ministers. And now this becomes the hottest talk in town.

    ahh.. definately not... he has his own reason and of for the good intentions in my own perception... however it seems like the taiwanese don't see it that way...

    they refer us to the pro-china merger people... so on basic instincts.. now the relationship with Tw can see that its rather tense ? cuz i think they might be feeling that everyone wanted tw to be part of china...

    and because of sg's relationship with china... people in tw may not like we do...

    but anyway... he has good intentions doing that, its only that the taiwanese dont think it that way.. tats all.. its kinda sad..

    Basically, a vast majority of the countries in the world recognise PRC as the "official" China and not ROC. If the Taiwanese people really want to throw rocks, they would need a sh!tload.

    And I would take statements by Taiwanese politicians with a big grain of salt. Their parliament sessions are, shall I say, very robust? And the tabloids there have great power in playing up certain issues.

    well, unfortunately for you and I, if the taiwanese sees it that way we wouldn't have to do the dirty job

    actually, it wasn't good intentions, as they stated so many times. it is self interest. amazing that we would say something like that, i.e. "we're not nice guys, we're just watching out for ourselves…" but at least we don't pretend.

    SINGAPORE : Demonstrators in southern Taiwan have burned Singapore's flag to protest a recent speech by the Republic's Foreign Minister George Yeo to the United Nations.

    Brigadier-General George Yeo had said any push by Taiwan for independence could spark a war with China.



    The small group of protesters lit a fire in a metal barrel and dipped Singapore's red and white flag into the flames while chanting "Singapore is an informer" in Kaohsiung, the island's second-biggest city.

    In response to press queries, a spokesman for Singapore's Foreign Ministry commented: "Taiwan is an old friend. We are saddened by such intemperate actions." - CNA

    Well, for things like these, just have to let it rest lah. And the news reports on their TV are greatly exaggerated. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if that flag-burning thing was some TV producer's idea of generating interest in the topic. And actually, how the story goes really depend on which channel you are watching. TV channels there are polarized between political parties too. They are probably politicalizing the whole issue because of their legislative council elections in Nov.

    just look at the face of the protesters, they all look like some villagers paid to appear on TV.
