To finish reading: How to be a Godfather; book review and excerpts from "Asian Godfathers: Money and Power in Hong Kong and South-East Asia" by Joe Studwell.
An interesting investigative and critical analysis of the immigrant Chinese tycoons. Most definitely controversial, hence its attraction -- and at the same time a good indicator that you should take said book's veracity with a grain of salt. I highly recommend examining the review (and the book should you choose to buy it) with a healthy helping of good sense and reason.

I don't write intellectually. I write expressively. I don't claim to be accurate, fair or thorough. I don't wanna get stuck on certain topics. Though I sometimes do. But not that often. I'd like to expand. I wanna write more poems. But I'll only upload them if they're good. I only rant about my life's hardships if it will rescue just a little bit of my sanity. I'm saner than I make myself out to be, though.
If I am an OS kernel, and I just had a kernel dump, I'd imagine that the text in this blog is what it would more or less look like.
There. Do you get it?
