Chinese tourists

 The Chinese tourists are coming to Malaysia by the droves.They don't come alone,but by plane loads to KLIA and a few tens of busloads to Putrajaya.They don't come here are as budget tourists; but they come in great style wearing designer clothes and spectacles.They don't carry cheap compact cameras but they have DSLRs hanging on their necks..

Below is a snapshot of them coming down to The Souq to have breakfast.I only eat roti canai and lamb curry but most of them eat roti canai with big prawns that costs  at least RM25 each!They are rich people!

Gone were the days where cheap and lousy products come from China.Now,iPhones are made in China.China has the ability and the capacity to produce products as requested by any clients.The high economic growth in China in the last decade caused great worries in the West.The latest economic report stated that if China economy were to stumble,the world economy will be adversely affected!To me,China is going to play a major political and economic roles in the decades to come.

Ever wonder why China has become so successful?Why not Russia?Ever wonder why South Korea has becomes so successful?Why not Malaysia?Some food for thoughts over the weekend.

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?

'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
