Today is 双十节 or Double Ten, but it is even more special this year as people like me get to blog about Triple Ten. Because the chances are close to zero that I will live to see another Triple Ten I am posting my tribute to China and their contribution to Trinidad and Tobago and the world.
China’s best kept secret isn’t the melamine in the milk, the Geely Tiger GT, Liu Xiaobo or the name of the owner of the Gunapo Church. China’s best kept secret is 25 year-old Ayi Jihu (吉胡阿依) who is being called China’s Madonna by people who are authorized to do these things. If you look at some of Ayi’s videos on you will notice she can wine quite well by communist standards, a skill she developed while living in London, a city more cosmopolitan and has as much wining as Port of Spain during Carnival time. Ayi Jihu sold more than 100 million downloads of her music in China, which I assume, is a great achievement given China’s population of 1.4 billion. She is considered an R&B star and Ayi is going places like Bollywood where she is due to appear in a production soon.
I admire the Chinese not just for their ability to beat up, torture, then jail dissidents when needed, but for their ability to become leaders in the manufacture of everything from computer motherboards to people. The Chinese I know in Trinidad and Tobago are smart and this might be so because when China has to export people their pool to choose from is large. Here in Trinidad and Tobago, our pool is small so even with laptops for many by 2020 we may still have to depend on oil and gas money rather than scattered brains to make ends meet. Drill, drill, drill! China is on target to attaining world dominance but this will only happen when they conquer the last two frontiers – the automobile and winer-gul industries. Look out Toyota and Trinidad and Tobago, China is coming in your way.
And now for the traditional Chinese version of the post above:
今天是China’ s大天、雙十節或者雙十，但是它是更加特別今年，當像我的人们有關於三倍十的博克。 由于機會是接近零我將居住看另一三倍十我張貼我的進貢到中國和他們的對千里達與多貝哥和世界的貢獻。 中國的最佳的被保留的秘密不是在牛奶、Geely老虎GT，劉Xiaobo或Gunapo教會的所有者的名字的三聚氰胺。 中國的最佳的被保留的秘密是由人称中國的Madonna被批准做這些事的25歲的Ayi Jihu (吉胡阿依)。 如果您看一些Ayi’ 在您注意的YouTube的s錄影她可以相當很好喝酒根據亞洲標準，她開发，當住在倫敦时的技巧，更加世界性的城市並且有一样喝酒象口岸- -在狂歡節时间，西班牙。 Ayi Jihu賣了超过100她的音樂百萬下載在中國，我假設，指定的一個巨大成就中國的人口1.4十億。 她被认為R& B星和Ayi是去的地方，如Bollywood她就该很快的地方出现於生產。 我敬佩中國人不僅他們的能力的能打，拷打，然后拘留不滿分子，當需要，但是為了他們的能力能成為在一切的製造的領導從計算機主板到人。 我在千里達與多貝哥认识的中國人是聰明的，並且這也許如此是，因為，當中國必須出口人时他們的選擇的水池從是大。 這裡在千里達與多貝哥，我們的水池是小的，因此甚而與許多的膝上型計算機由2020我們也許仍然必須依靠油和煤气金錢而不是腦子。 鑽子，鑽子，鑽子! 中國在目標對獲得世界優勢，但是這只將發生，當他們征服前二個邊境-汽車和winer-gul產業。 看豐田，並且千里達與多貝哥，中國來臨您的方式。
