    Only some "fragile glassy hearts" from Taiwan, or better call them "Greenly Toads" of Taiwan, talk like that, because they want to convince themselves that they are loved by everyone in the world except people in Mainland China and in the NK, despite Taiwan has very few diplomatic ties to outside world. This is called Delusion by Self-enforcement in psychology.

    Western MSM do know China's Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) and they do think all countries involved in BRI are China's friends. But they seldom report anything about the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) because, I guess, they feel it is too scary to mention SCO to their audience.

    continuing on this fascinating aspect of Thailand This Sarah Lam from Hongkong is also curious about Thai Chinese identity
    Well I travel widely in Thailand As I said before most Thai has Chinese ancestry officially it is around 10% but unofficially it is more like 50% When they know you are Chinese they will tell you my family is also hailed from China and they have 2 names in their business card They are completely assimilated but still retain the basic of Chinese value and culture not so much ceremonies as the baba of Malaysia and Singapore who are more clingy to the old customs. But they also proud of their heritage

    As the end of this interview when He said Yes I still follow the old teaching and value and He also said he want his son to know his heritage They own most of Thailand economy out of the 10 biggest bank 9 are owned by Thai Chinese the same with real estate developer and industry all the way to professional and aristocracy
    Having the same religion and the same origin as the native Thai smooth the relation,they didn't suffer discrimination

    Here is the synopsis from Sarah Lam

    Thailand is a country which has the highest population of the Chinese diaspora, which contributes around 12 percent of its total population in 2012. I am interested in investigating how this large group of people thinks about their identity, their history, and their future. Therefore, I decided to interview the Poosak family to catch a glimpse of how the ethnic Chinese successfully assimilate into Thai society, meanwhile, how do they and why do they preserve or re-imagine their Chinese identity in the face of the influence of local culture and western culture.



    Here is the comment on the youtube

    I am Thai-Chinese-Finn. Mum is Thai-Finnish, Dad is Thai-Chinese, with Grandmother from Hubei while grandfather identify as Thai from Chiangmai. Growing up, I always identify as Thai never though to identify as anything else honestly. This is a great documentary and quit accurate. Especially when the interviewee said that many Thais have Chinese blood. Everybody I knew growing up identified as Thai but sometime we say, “oh yah some of my ancestors was from Guangxi too.”

    Construction of the middle part of the China-Russia east-route natural gas pipeline started on Thursday and is expected to be completed next October, according to China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC), the country's biggest oil and gas company.

    The middle part of the project stretches from Jilin province to Hebei province. Upon completion, the pipeline is expected to ease the gas shortage in Northeast China and the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.

    The China-Russia gas pipeline is expected to provide China with 38 billion cubic meters of natural gas from Russia annually.

    The China-Russia East-Route natural gas pipeline makes up the eastern portion of Russia's "Power of Siberia" pipeline and runs from eastern Siberia to China.

    With the project going into operation, Sinolink Securities' Resource and Environment Research Center said it expects Russia's share in China's gas market will increase.

    CNPC has also signed an agreement with Novatek, Russia's top independent gas producer, in April, to buy a 10 percent stake in its new liquefied natural gas project, Arctic LNG 2, to increase gas supply in the country.

    China generally got a bad press in Japan because the commercial Tv network tend to show the bad aspect of Chinese tourist or some food scandal and other unsavory aspect of modern China.

    But young Japanese tend to think differently because now there are more chances of intermingling due to travel and study, work etc
    One person is truly revolutionary his name is Ryo Tackeuchi He and his his family has no connection to China at all until he met a Chinese girl in Japan and fell in love with her and eventually marry her . His interest in China suddenly get aroused
    He was one of the documentary director with NHK And he was tasked to make documentary about China with NHK He travel widely in china and well received But people keep asking him about Japanese old movie idol like Momoe Yamaguchi who is popular in china's 1980's
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Momoe_Yamaguchi

    He then decide to introduce modern Japanese life to Chinese public using youtube media At the same time he is chaffing the oppressive Japanese work environment and the pressure to conform He said he like the individualistic attitude of typical Chinese and does not care what other people think
    So he decide to move to his wife hometown Nanjing and using his own money to produce content for internet His wife at first was against it since they have comfortable life in Japan good job, own their home plus the family is there But he keep asking so she relent and move to Nanjing

    At first they have tough time with no sponsor but little by little he won follower and eventually get a sponsor He is very popular now because he story is genuine with no agenda and motive. He tell the story of the people as it is
    Mostly deal with Chinese people living and working in Japan and Vice versa with Japanese people living and working in China. some of his story is very touching I will posted here
    He speak good putonghua and he has side kick a former pop star by the name of Abuli who speak excellent chinese

    So much for the much hyped "push back" touted by the western MSM. China and Malaysia relaunch the east coast railway line

    Malaysia has officially relaunched its East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project with China. The project was suspended in July 2018 by the Pakatan Harapan government due to high costs. Under the revised deal, the cost of the ECRL is cut by about a third to US$11 billion. An auspicious ceremony, complete with fireworks, was held to mark the blasting of one of tunnels in the east coast state of Terengganu.

    The tie that bind. Officially the Chinese Philippine or Tsinoy is only 2 million make up about 1 %of the population but if you consider Phillipino who has Chinese ancestry it can be as high as 30%!
    A moving account of poor Phillipino who trace his ancestry to Fujian and the response of his long lost relative in China who openly embraced him as long lost relative and travel all the way from Fujian to Phillipine to find them

    Chinese can be said to be loud and maybe even uncouth but their sense of family transcend time and space of political boundary. or social class. It is becoming attractive even for Young Japanese and Korean

    The history between the Philippines and China goes back a long way and further intensified when migrants made their way from China’s coastal regions to the Southeast Asian country in search of a better life for themselves and their families. It is of little wonder that some Filipinos like to say, “There’s a little Chinese in me.” And in the age of social media, more Filipinos are getting a chance to discover their Chinese roots, especially with the help of relative finder advocates. This episode chronicles the journey of an elderly Filipino to China after he found out that he had relatives there. The trip to Quanzhou City in Fujian Province was emotional for Abraham Go whose father left behind a family in China that Go previously had not known existed. Separately, CGTN correspondent Barnaby Lo goes on his own personal voyage to Jinjiang, also in Fujian Province, to discover his Chinese roots. Both sets of his family left China for the Philippines in the 1930s.

    I remember in my childhood days in the 90s when there are Chinese TV shows / drama being shown in local television channels in the Philippines. However I noticed that in the mid 2000s there has been growing efforts to promote anti Chinese attitude by private news agencies and media stations. following these developments, Chinese oriented shows were quietly withdrawn from local channels and disappeared completely in a few years period. Now that the US has initiated a trade war against China, anti China rhetoric is in full swing in media outlets in the Philippines. This is a very dangerous plot that is being promoted by American intelligence agents in the country. The United States is conducting a powerful propaganda war against China among its neighbouring countries. China needs to act decisively to counter these efforts by the United States, China is the only Asian power that can save the whole of Asia from becoming expendable vassals of the United States and its cronies.
