Good Job at as to keep the Viet on their toes for a while.

If we are smart, we should learn to exploit this type of situation and use them to benefit Cambodia as the Thai and the Viet are doing it all along for their countries.

If were continue to stay straight like an arrow, they will of course walk all over us.

It's good to know there is presence of helps from Foreigners in Cambodia generally and not just China. With a big country like China, a little more than 1 billion doesn't seem much. A little country like VN can pour over 6 billion dollars into Cambodia through investments is even better due to jobs creation.
Just let you bunch of Khmer extremists know that, even with full support from China and North Korea like in Polpot era, VN can replace the genocide Government within 10 days if necessary.
History proved that and too bad now, Oversea Khmer extremists can not turn the tide, Baby!

"Soft Power"

For the average harmless China followers no doubt it would be the soft part that appeals first and foremost. Beyond that it would very much call for a stout stomach, preferrably pecuniarily fortified, and no small measure of callous-ness of the soul to be openly singing the praise of China and its meritocratic dictatorship.

It all depends on the particular recipient in their particular situation; but usually a soft focus is all it takes.

Blah, blah, blah and no one understands a single word you are saying in your translations.

Now do not be naughty by selling those soft porns around Chungking Building to passing innocent tourists. Soft porn is illegal in Hong Kong especially being sold by an illegal like you. Go home and seek a decent job where you come from and live honestly instead of shamefully hanging around Hong Kong and complainig that life is hard and miserable as you like us to believe. Hong Kong police will soon round up and pound the hand biting dog now roaming freely in Tsim Tsa Tsui. This dog is just abusing the freedom it has in the peaceful territory.

Pornography has such loose definition that almost anything it seems can pass for it as long as it gets you off. Take that distant fuzzy love for China of yours or perhaps those artfully panned red garbed women militia on National Day parade. You obviously have quite different things in mind but unwittingly, or is it halfwittedly you do have an INK-ling of where my post to which you playact at replying to is headed.

Congratulation nonetheless is in order Miss INK that online creative writing course has worked wonder and you seem to genuinely benefit. It is still pretty much bung but the efforts is everything. Keep up the good work.

Hypocrite Ma Boo Hy , Blah, blah, blah again to peddle your pornography in Chungking Building,in broad daylight along busy Nathan Road??? BSA/Ma Boo Hy/gagi nang, just admit that you are a sexual gay pervert trying to subvert the moral fibre of Hong Kong society in order to make a living. But beware that there are many cctv intalled along the corridors and lifts in that building and police are monitoring 24/7 your subversive life style.
BSA just get out of Hong Kong and go back to your beloved hell hole since you has such a big chip on your shoulder telling lies agaist Hong Kong China that is feeding and accommodating you. Hong Kong China does not welcome pervert like you in their society. How embarrassing it is for a hypocrite like you keep telling lies against Hong Kong people/society/government and yet live off it illegally by selling immoral pornography to corrupt all HK youngsters and foreign tourists.

I don't actual want and care to know about China. The only thing I know as of China is big country, has huge population with a long time of creation for their country. I believe Chinese was the first to invent explosives too. But, in the world theater, they are not the best or advance like other rich countries.
One more thing, China tried to annex VN for more than 4000 years without success. What else?
Oh, China is master of "copying" in term of technology....
One more thing, I do not trust quality of Chinese products, generally. I think that's enough for me about China!
