My staff returned to Singapore from China to report on the progress of our project. We are having some minor problems. I have to fly over to China soon and be Santa Claus. It's not even December!
My project would eventually be completed, as long as we keep the people in-charge of various licensing departments fed; ply them with alcohol; good supply of young, pretty girls and enough pocket money to spend. Bribery? Well! That's common in China. Even Singapore has it. The Chinese are blatantly open when it comes to asking for money, favours and gifts.
I'm not running an illegal business in China. Over there, legal or illegal businesses, you have to give offerings. And knowing the right people does help a lot. At least I don't have to bleed so much and I would have no trouble from the small fries.
See the problems our Singapore Government is having with Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and China. What do the high-ranking holier-than-thou civil servants know about handling the officials from these countries? It's a losing game for Singapore. Not many Governments in the world think like those dense ones in Singapore.
When I first invested in China, I lost everything because I didn't play by their rules. Do you know what happened to our Singapore-Suzhou Industrial Park? The true story is being circulated among the businessmen and investors in China. The Singapore Government is a laughing stock. MM also cannot settle the problem for them.
How can a nobody from a small island demand to sit on the dragon throne? Well, he thought he is somebody and wanted to be the Big Brother. The Chinese taught him and his bosses a good lesson. I have no sympathy for such arrogant ass. I only feel sorry that our money is wasted.
I'm coming to the end of my vacation and then I'll be plunging back to work. And I'll be working very, very hard, Jaymes wants to study in a top University in the US. I need to prepare a sum of money for that. That's another story.......
