Asia by Blog

Asia by Blog is a regular feature providing links to Asian blogs and their views on the news in this fascinating region. Previous editions can be found here.

1. The new Daily Linklets posts will also contain links to interesting China, Asia and other news and views.

2. Today I've put the entire post on the main page, rather than pushing the body into the extended entry. Any feedback on preferred formats or any other feedback or comments (such as what style of links/stories/information you find most useful or interesting) is greatly appreciated. /Note**

This edition contains China's anti-secession law, South Korea/Japan tensions, gays and AIDS in Singapore, the Dictator and the SecState, re-emerging China, pandas making a comeback, the Dalai Lama and Tibet, the realities of China's net censorship, the South Indian Diet plus much more...

The round-up has four key areas of focus:

China, Taiwan and Hong Kong

Korea and Japan

SE and Other Asia

So I call you illustrious, and I get prolific. Besides us now being big adjective nerds, do you think I can legally change my name to that?

simon, you got tawian all wrong. it is not texas, it does not want to secede from the union. it was never a province of China. you are obviosuly paid by your commie handlers. sad. before you start blogging , learn your history first.

the reason why blogosphere doesn't quite cut it -- any disagreement is automatically taken as proof that the other side is in the pay of the commie handlers and/or CIA paymasters.this just totally destroys any intellectual content that might have been there.

Dan, your reading comprehension skills need work. 1) Simon was quoting a phrase found in the entry he linked to, and in most media outlets, for that matter. 2) The piece he linked to actually seems to have a mildly pro-Taiwan slant.
