In their quest to get the cheapest deal, the Indonesian have inadvertently put themselves in a bind.The solution is obviously to award to this first line to Japan and promise PRC a second line, if they (PRC) can get the reported safety issue of a recent major rail accident sorted out including transparent reporting made public.

2020 is 5yrs away, so to start from scratch needs a super effort indeed. But now, if they retain everything below the bicycle helmet and have a simple roof over the seating areas, it will be ok. Time to get creative, J-architects!

Greece has always been a borderline case, economically, to be part of the EU. They are not hungry like the eastern European countries. Now we will see Russia trying to maneuver to be a 'good' country to make themselves look good to the Greeks and attempt to split Europe. Expect them to pay millions to set up a naval base in Greece who will gladly accept the offer.

Sepp Blatter would have attended the women's World Cup to observe and decide on compulsory FIFA tight shorts for the women players. Perhaps even cleavage revealing T-shirts. Now that he is leaving office & afraid to get arrested on-transit in LA to Canada, who's going to do this arduous task?

How is it that woman in Japan have such a 'good commanding position' over their man yet when the marriage breaks up, she is left with the kids and the need to take a job, no jobs, to support them. I know of one with 2 kids from 2 previous marriages doing multiple jobs just to get by. Maybe she is a rarity, but it is one too many.

Sounds very much like a would-be thief/robber complaining to the police about being followed and threatening their 'safe passage' to the intended house where he/they planned to commit a crime.

I wonder if technology will someday produce a 'ray gun' able to neutralize radiation. The process might even produce electricity or at least heat we can re-use!

This is funny because all over Asia, cherry blossom viewing has always been associated with Japan. Nothing that China or South Korea says will change this. The only fear for China is there might be a news report of the Chinese parents allowing their children to shit or urinate whilst the family views cherry blossom and this makes it to news around the world. Such a piece of news will then stick in people's mind for sure! Already when I drop my cellphone on a plane aisle, I immediately sanitize it with alcohol paper, knowing PRC Chinese parents allow their children to shit on the aisle.

Let's worship the PRC Chinese tourist who let their children do it anywhere rather than on Japanese toilets in Asia's Malls. They are following their ancestors from the villages across historic China. Why waste money on tip-top Japan-made toilet seats when you can do it on plane aisles, food-court corners or bushes besides bus station! Long live China!

I bought a small plastic pail from Daiso Singapore for a minor paint job. I expected to it throw it away after use, but it was better quality than an existing one which got thrown away instead. Now whenever we DIY at home, our first stop is Daiso.

I read another article here that the Chinese are buying up Japanese rice because of the fear that local Chinese grown rice contains pesticides. Perhaps they should direct their effort and money towards 'frightening' the Chinese rice growers about excessive use of pesticides with threats of jail time instead of a big military parade to frighten the Japanese.
