SINGAPORE BYPASSED AS OIL TANKERS DELIVER CRUDE VIA MYANMAR PORT

The 770KM China-Myanmar oil pipeline has finally been opened for business, a move that could see China-bound oil bypassing Singapore's strategic port altogether. According to Bloomberg last month, the China-Myanmar pipeline handled its first tanker, with a capacity of over a million barrels of crude oil, at Myanmar's Kyaukpyu port on 10 April.

SG SUFFERING FROM DIPLOMATIC ISSUES AS OUR LEADERS LACK DIPLOMATIC SKILLS

I have confided to some people about the great challenge we will face in the near future due to tension at Taiwan Strait as well as South China Sea. Especially South China Sea issue is extremely delicate and important to us as a trading port. I was very concerned that PAP under PM Lee would just screw it up badly. A small country like Singapore depends on great Diplomacy and Trade for survival. If our political leaders lack diplomatic skills, we will suffer very badly.

Just two years after the passing of LKY, it is unfortunate that my very deep down fear and concern came true. PM Lee, for all his life living enclosed in a palace fed with a golden spoon, does not seem to know how to handle human relationship, lest Diplomacy. Unlike his father who was basically a political street fighter, PM Lee lacks that realistic exposure to understand the importance of the nuance in diplomacy.

CHINA OFFERS AIR DEFENCE SYSTEM TO MALAYSIA TO DETECT "TERRORISTS"

Ties between Singapore and Malaysia are set to become testy as China attempts to drive a wedge between the 2 neighbors with its actions in trade and defence. According to The Malaysian Insight, China has promised loans for the RM55 billion East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) that would link Port Klang to Kuantan and provide a rail bridge for goods from the Strait of Malacca to the South China Sea, effectively bypassing Singapore's busy sea port.

CHINA SNUBS PM LEE HSIEN LOONG FOR ONE BELT ONE ROAD FORUM, OTHER ASEAN LEADERS INVITED

In the just concluded Belt and Road Forum, China has chosen to invite the Heads of Government for some countries, and only a ministerial representative from others. Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Indonesia and The Philippines all sent their Heads of Government. Our delegation was headed by Min Lawrence Wong. As a result, Singapore was not at the main table around President Xi in the many of the main discussions. Suffice to say China is behaving more and more like the imperial power of old.

GIRL DEFECATES IN DRAIN WHILE MOTHER BUSY PLAYING BADMINTON

Just wanted to share something that literally just happened 5 mins ago. I was walking back to my block when I saw a lady usher her kid to the drain, when I walked closer, I saw that the little girl (around 5yo) was squatting down with her pants partially off.

As I walked closer to my block, I saw that the little girl was literally defecating in the drain while the 2 adult ladies were playing badminton. And I shouted at them, pointing out the fact that this is unacceptable in public. I am assuming that these 2 women are probably China nationals because of their unmistakable accent. Of course, I might be wrong on this. But I have met them numerous time around my block and hearing their accent and style makes me around 90% sure they are China nationals.
