Heated argument on the MRT caught on camera "RACIST! RACIST!"
Welcome to the ugly side of Singapore.

Here we have an adult man (as pictured on the left, wearing the blue polo shirt) and a senior citizen arguing about a reserved seat in the MRT, which the adult man somehow turned the reserved seat issue into a 'racist' issue (WTF?), and then it ended up as a spitting match as the adult man left for his stop.

I don't know in the world this became racist issue as I think both the adult and old man are Chinese.

The adult man was supposed to give up his 'reserved seat', but he did not.  I guess that was what started the whole argument?

And why wasn't anyone there to try to calm down both parties who were getting louder and louder?  Everyone on the MRT were just stuck there, like a deer in the headlights. 

I can't believe the argument ended up as a spitting match.  What the hell, are these guys in kindergarten?  1st world people don't spit at others.

Ho ho ho ho!  Congratulations Singapore.  You may be a '1st world country' with world class infrastructure, but your citizens are..... something else.  Lol.

Watch the action unfold:

Ai weiwei beijing brawl
Ai Weiwei - the guy who likes to point out all the flaws of Chinese society to the world using his art - captured some crazy footage of a brawl that broke out and people were violently throwing chairs, and metal pipes at each other outside a restaurant in Beijing. 

It turns out that the projectile battle was between ethnic Tibetan street vendors and Chinese people who work in that restaurant.  It got really bloody as you can see some guy with a bloody face.

I don't know what sparked the fight in the first place but you can bet the Western media is going to have a field day with this knowing that one of the parties involved with this conflict are ethnic Tibetans.

Oh geeze and what else.  Look at the Beijing police officers and how they were handling the situation.  They don't even look like police.  They look like mall security guards.  In fact the police couldn't even control the situation between the two parties.  I thought China was supposed to be a totalitarian state or something but these police officers really suck.  They couldn't even keep the peace or stop the people from hurling bricks.  Quite embarrassing for the Beijing police....

Watch the video:

girl anti-korean rally in Tsuruhashi
Video footage of a Japanese middle school student on a public street in Tsuruhashi ( the Koreatown of Osaka), screaming outbursts of anti-Korean hate speech and calling for a masscare of Koreans has gone viral in Youtube.

I'm all for free speech but.... seriously Japan?  This girl was making DEATH THREATS to Koreans living in Japan and the police in front of her didn't do shit?

Did she admit to the Nanking Massacre?

One thing that I couldn't believe at first was that she mentioned (admitted to?) the Nanking Massacre.  The English subtitles in the video translates the schoolgirl saying: "If they want to be that arrogant we will start Tsuruhashi massacre like Nanking massacre!"
girl anti-korean rally in Tsuruhashi
Her fellow anti-Korean ralliers said "YES!!!" in response to her death threats.  I guess they all know about the Nanking Massacre too?

I thought the Japanese popular belief was that the Chinese fabricated the whole Nanking Massacre.  But the way how the schoolgirl referenced it, it seems to me like she believes that the Nanking Massacre is a real event and a real Japanese war atrocity against the Chinese.

I guess the cat is now out of the bag.

Watch the video footage quick before it gets taken down again because of Youtube's policies against hate speech.

I went shopping a couple days ago at a local Asian supermarket here in Vancouver. 

When walking by the frozen goods section, something caught my eye.  So I stopped and took a picture of this (click on the pictures to enlarge them):
Here is another photo.
What I saw was a brand of frozen Chinese buns called "James Bun".  I guess it's a play on 007 James Bond?  But look at the obnoxious Asian-looking on the logo!  Look at his chinky eyes, his snouty nose and his buck teeth.

Oh noes!  What a horrible and gross misrepresentation of Asian people.  That is so racist!
Oh what?  This is a Taiwanese product and company behind this?  Well... shucks.  I don't know what to say anymore.  But I am still offended!  Boo hoo hoo hoo!  I'm telling on you to my Asian-American blogger and vlogger friends...
So... I finally got a search box for Asian Hip Hop Times.  Powered by Blekko. 

You guys can now search for whoever and whatever to your heart's content.  w00t!
I just watched this Dutch produced short clip entitled Temptation for Jesus in Korea

It's about Pastor Nam Yon Seok from Seoul Lang church who thinks it's kosher to use Korean gunpang cookies and potholders as tools for evangelism.

Handing out cookies with church flyers inside the package to people on the street, even to unsuspecting children who are just eyeing for sugary treats, seems like a nice gesture to let everyone know about the church and it seems relatively harmless.  But going door-to-door giving out potholders as a guise for evangelism is kind of creepy.

Heck, this was what even Pastor Nam said about his style of door-to-door style evangelism:
When they open the door and accept our gifts, we will continue to visit them.  Till they believe in Jesus....Do you visit our church regularly?  Yes?  Then we let them alone.
This is really like guerrilla evangelism.  It's like surprise!   Here's a free potholder for you.  Now you listen to me about our church.  We won't stop until you join our church lol.

The female pastor is so crazy.  Notice how at 3:30 mark of the video she approaches from the side of the door entrance so that even before the door opens totally, she can immediately get her foot in the door to give out the free potholder to the unsuspecting person behind the door.

Is this kosher evangelism?  I don't know.  I don't think there are any Bible verses against this.  Not to my knowledge at least.  But it's definitely weird.


This blog post is decided to all you innocent boys and girls out there with pure hearts of gold and who have dreams to become a Kpop star.

See that picture above?  Read the subtitle.  That's exactly what this creepy judge from the K-Pop Star Hunt reality show said in English after picking a certain Taiwanese boy to go to the next round.

The full quote:
The boy, he's very cute, and he's very, very potential to exploit him...to make him into another star quality in the future.
Yeah...no shit!  The judge said it flat out.  You will be exploited.  How much more obvious can he be?  That's what will happen to you if you ever decide to become a Kpop star.  The whole Kpop music industry is corrupt.  Don't worry if your skin is too dark or if you don't look Korean enough.  Just run while you can.  Lolz.


Mondega & Bambu

Wednesday night's execution of Troy Davis via lethal injection has left everyone in the United States divided.  Some believe that Troy Davis was guilty as charged for murdering an off-duty police officer.  Others believe that Davis was an innocent man and he, being black was a victim of racial profiling.

This blog post isn't a rant on whether Troy Davis was guilty or not guilty or whether the American judicial system is prejudiced against blacks.   This post is about how two different opinions concerning Troy Davis created a rift between two Asian American rappers Mondega and Bambu who had previously collaborated together on Mondega's Music for the People back in April.

Here's how it went down.

A Vietnamese-American woman from Garden Grove, California by the name of Catherine Kieu Becker, chopped off her husband's penis as they were going through divorce proceedings.  She was arrested by the police and held on $1 million dollar bail.

Here's how it went down (via LA Times):

Becker, 48,  told police she had drugged her husband’s dinner to make him sleepy, then tied him to the bed.

As he awoke, she cut off his penis with a knife, tossed it in the garbage disposal and turned the disposal on.

She threw the chopped off penis in the garbage disposal?  Daaaaaaaaaamn!  Lord have mercy.

Becker also has no remorse for chopping off her husband's penis as she reportedly said her husband "deserved it".

Yingluck Shinawatra - Thai PM

The Thai election results are in!  Thailand's new and first ever female prime minister is Yingluck Shinawatra, the sister of former ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra. She is 44 years old and looks pretty good for her age.  She kinda has that Avon lady / female executive look going for her (Hellooooooooooo nurse!).

Currently, Thailand is divided between the yellow shirts and red shirts.  The only thing that is keeping the country together is probably the King of Thailand.  Let's hope Yingluck is more than just eye candy, and that she can unite the country and move it forward...
