Asia by Blog

Today's edition of Asian blogging's best:

Hong Kong, Taiwan and China

  • Myrick says here today, gone tomorrow, or why is it Communists like Photoshop so much?

  • Western cultural imperialism is helping China earn more. I'm just not sure that this is a "cost of globalisation".

  • Chalk up a win for the Hu camp at the top of the CCP, says Adam. Is the balance of power shifting towards Hu and away from Jiang Zemin?

  • Tom has more on China's other Great Wall, although mentioning it inevitably causes trouble.

  • Ancient martial arts and the world's oldest profession meet on the streets of modern HK.

  • "Stepping stones get stepped a lot": Phil on HK's pathetic and unnecessary coat-tailing.

  • A trip to the toilet that ended up taking 2 weeks, via Jodi.

  • The always excellent ALN has a comprehensive summary of all labour-related news from China in August.

  • Did you know China's stockmarket has crashed? Seems like it might be time to buy again.

  • The latest in SARS protection.

  • Jodi talks about table tennis's potential influence on this weekend's HK elections.

  • ACB takes a detailed look at Sino-US relations over the past year.

  • Stephen looks at China's warning to its Uighur population.

  • Tequila is for wimps; China has alcohol with real bite.

  • The dos and don'ts of corporate speaking in Asia.
  • Korea and Japan

  • Korea caught processing uranium...except it's the South, not the North.

  • For some North Koreans, gaining asylum is the easy part. They can't even call home.

  • Gord says in Korea even foreign drug users are discriminated against, but in this case it's hard to feel sympathy for them.

  • South Korean lawmakers are now claiming Chinese territory, even though there's the small matter of North Korea (with its traditions in prostitution), history, a treaty and the PLA in the way.

  • Kevin has the latest Korean trends.

  • George Bush's acceptance speech had one major omission and a pretty flimsy excuse. Oranckay suspects the invitation to Crawford is in the mail.
  • SE Asia

  • Rajan has comprehensive coverage of the release of Anwar and its aftermath.

  • It's good to be the President.

  • Singapore's censorship policies are doing there job. Under threat of libel the Economist caves in and Myrick reflects on this and his own self-imposed censorship. Singabloodypore rejoices in the "new" Singapore.

  • "Too slow. Too smart. Too stupid. Too sexy. Too smelly."

  • FriskoDude is not a fan of Thailand's The Nation website. His regular SE Asian roundup is a must.

  • Miscellany

  • Jodi sees the upside in China's gender imbalance.

  • The fashion roadkill series continues with commentary by the victim.

  • Mr Brown looks at the judging of the judges of Singapore Idol.
  • NOTE: Remember to link back to this post and I'll add you to the next one. Details on how to Trackback are here. If you're still stuck or confused, leave a comment instead.
