Check Mate

I got this play from Watts App- by Ron Anz.It was sent to me by my sister and made me think 🤔 How I wish I could link it.

 It reminds me of Sun Tzu’s Art of War Part III- 6 Therefor the skillful leader subdues the enemy’s troops without any fighting; he captures their cities without laying any siege on them; he overthrows their kingdom without lengthy operation in the field.

      China’s Operation Checkmate*

SCENE I: The curtain opens: The Chinese becomes ill, enters a “crisis” and paralyzes its trade. The curtain closes.

SCENE II: The curtain opens: The Chinese currency is devalued. They do not anything. The curtain closes.

SCENE III. The curtain opens. Due to lack of trade companies from Europe and the USA that are based in China, their shares fall 40% of all their value.

SCENE IV. The curtain opens. The worlds is ill, China buys 30% of the shares of the companies in Europe and the US at a very low price. The curtain closes.

SCENE V. The curtain opens. China has controlled the disease and owns companies in Europe and the US. And he decides that these comapanies stay in China and earn $2000 B. The curtain closes. How is the play called?



      In recent days, China broke many records, and earned absolutely everything,
$ 20 billion in the first news and bought about 30% of the shares of companies that belong to the West in China.

      President Xi Jinping has surpassed Europeans and intelligent American Democrats.

     He played a wonderful game in front of the eyes of the entire world.

      Due to the situation in Wuhan, the Chinese currency began to decline, but the Chinese Central Bank took no action to stop this collapse.

       There were also many rumors that China didn’t even have enough masks to fight the Corona Virus.

       These rumors and Xi Jinping’s statement that he is ready to protect Wuhan residents by blocking borders has led to a sharp decline in share prices (44%) in Chinese technology and the chemical industry.

      Financial sharks began selling all Chinese stocks, but no one wanted to buy them and they were completely devalued.

       Xi Jinping made a great move at this time, waiting for a whole week and smiling at the press conferences as if nothing special had happened.

        And when the prices fell below the allowed..expected limit,
he ordered to buy ALL the shares of Europeans and Americans at the same time!

       Then, the “financial sharks” realized that they had been cheated and bankrupt.

       But it was too late, because all the shares had passed to China, which at this time not only earned   $ 2000 Billion, but thanks to the simulation,
once again becomes the majority shareholder of companies built by Europeans and Americans. The shares now belong to their companies and have become owners of the heavy industry on which the EU, America and the entire world depend.

      From now on, China will set the price and the income of its companies will not leave the Chinese borders, but remain at home and maintain all the Chinese gold reserves.
A great checkmate .!.

      Therefore, the American and European “financial sharks” proved stupid and in a few minutes the Chinese collected most of their shares, which now produce billions of dollars in profits!

        You may not remember such a bright brainy movement in the history of the stock market ever.!

China,  originator of the pandemic, has miraculously “recovered”, has almost no more cases of coronavirus. The world is now beginning to feel the effects and panic about the disease. Who recovered first ?? China itself! It seems to be that this virus was a move by the Chinese government in response to the loss of the trade war with the United States. The goal: to throw the world into recession !!!
Is the scenario not clear? They are already growing! China bought almost everything it devalued on the stock exchanges around the world … with that the Chinese became owners of the global companies that are in China and without the money leaving China.

The US tariff was hurting China’s economy. Diversion to occupy another countries territory , “create a chaos on the West and attack the East” is a Chinese idiom. I did not know I will witness these military tactics used in my time.

This is my tale according to my experience and point of view.

Your safety, your family safety and your community safety isn’t just work or responsibility of the government or their agencies. It is FIRST YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. The invisible enemy came, we are powerless to stop it, COVID 19 will come and its right in your doorstep, in your table, in your seat and droplets in the air. How do you fight the invisible enemy?

It is invisible but not invincible, however we need each one and the community together. This virus can live outside a host body for period of time and the infected person or carrier do not have symptoms until 2 to 4 days.

However, COVID 19 can be destroyed by soap, sanitizer or disinfectant and heat.

How do we control the spread of COVID 19:

ISOLATION – Isolate the sick person (confirmed or not) that have symptoms of infection like sniffling, dry cough, fever and difficulty of breathing.

Why isolation? The virus is highly contagious and normally can be transmitted through saliva and droplets from sneeze or coughing from infected person.

Example from experience: I saw a man (could be infected on not but let us assume he is infected) in my neighborhood coughing hard in a grocery store along the store aisles with shelves on both sides on his way to the ATM at the back. First cough he failed to cover his mouth and nose and the second coughed, he covered his nose and mouth with his hand. Eww, right!

Damn, if I only had it . A mask. But, I can’t buy one anywhere. The guy in front of him turned, now, he used his arms shoulders to cover his cough.

He went to the ATM withdrew money. Then went to the aisle to grab what he needed. Pick up some items to read the ingredients, put them back on the shelf because its not the one he needed. He finished his shopping, paid the cashier cash and left the store, pull the handle of the door. Outside, he coughed again and spit his saliva on the street, then wiped his mouth using his sleeves.

Will you shake hands with this man if you know? Will you buy the grocery on the shelf? Will you withdraw money from the same ATM machine? Will you take the cash change from the cashier? Will you touch the handle of the door? Will you bring in your shoes inside your house? How about the droplets in the aisle? I could stay few hours in the air. He contaminated everything.

Does this man knew what situation the country is in? Or he just doesn’t care? Or just like me, he can’t find a mask anywhere because someone hoard it.

Side note: I don’t know if you heard or read about the man from Tennessee, who hoard more than 17.000 of sanitizer and disinfectant leaving his neighborhood vulnerable, to sell it on Ebay and Amazon for a jack up price?

What if another elderly lady came in the grocery store right when the man went out of the door. The elderly lady has invisible enemy. Good thing the cashier was wearing a mask and she had a disinfecting wipes and gloves to protect herself. I felt she is safe. I had only my son with me. He knew what to do when we get home, wipe his bag of chips with disinfectant, wash his hands and face with hot water , then blow his nose to clean his nostrils.

My readers did not know this but I was in Singapore during the SARS periods. I was working there and we are taught to act like we have this invisible enemy in our space. Reminders from the government campaign, pointers from the company through memorandum, everyone was teaching and watching each other because if I do not educate who is near me, that person will put me in and the whole community jeopardy. My elder Chinese crew gave me turmeric and told me to drink it as tea. I am a coffee drinker; I can put it in my coffee too. Only to find out it is an immune booster against inflammation.

During that time, we did not stop working. The restaurant I work with remained open, dining area was open and I have a group I met every week and most of us were in the service industry and a nurse that worked in Tan Tok Seng Hospital. This hospital was the designated hospital for SARS patients. Before the hospital forbid them to mingle with us and put them in one dormitory, we meet together and she lived with my friends. None of us ever got infected.

HYGIENE: What did we do?

  1. We clean our space. I was renting a room and living with a family of three. We clean and sanitized everything in the house. We make sure our nest had no virus. All surface, knobs, everything we though a drop of virus will come in contact with, we disinfect them*** we might have carried it in our house we don’t know but we want to make sure it isn’t there. We thought too we are crazy. But we were not panicking, we were laughing with each other doing this and assuming the virus might be in our home already since we can’t see.

  2. We do not bring out shoes inside the house. If this is not your practice, at least put a foot bath. Don’t bring that virus inside your house.

  3. We wash our hands and face the moment we get home or take a bath, its better.

  4. Use a hair dryer (make sure cover your face with damp towel) or inhale hot steam from your kettle for 10-15 to increase the temperature of our nostrils. Virus from the air thrives there, and that is how you kill it. I did not hear it in company campaign but these were some of the things shared around to keep us from being infected. It sounds so stupid but most of my crew were elderly, the whole team did well. This last prevention although sounds thought out by some germophobe but I believed it kept us all healthy.

Outside our homes how do we keep everyone and our space safe?

  1. We strongly instructed our team, if you are sick, have a cough, running nose or fever. STAY home and stay away from other family members .

  2. Isolation of the sick person who could spread the virus. We take their temperature and if the person had symptoms of infection, we don’t let them work. We give the person a mask and send them home.

  3. It was normal to carry either sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and masked with us. When we eat in a restaurant, use the elevator, etc., Of course my “friendship group ” always assume that we were following an irresponsible infected person (either he was aware of it or not that he was spreading his germs) and was touching everything with his infected hand. We would wipe it with disinfectant before we touch it.

The awareness and everyone made it their responsibility to make the community safe. If you are irresponsible and coughing in the restaurant without a face mask, sure you will hear some will tell you off with their very sharp Singlish accent, “Hey, you are spreading your germs.” Then hand you a mask and disinfecting towel. Everybody in the restaurant, will stare at that person. So, it is really embarrassing to be irresponsible because the community will reprimand you.

That was not all. My supervisor visited my store and asked me during that season, “ Have you done your shopping? “ I thought, I did not really need anything. He probably read my expression and continued, ” Ah, yay… economy is bad right now. Contribute a little bit to make other people keep their jobs. Buy something. “

So, I went shopping the next day, spent about $250 for a bag and clothes. Because, I knew everyone were doing their part to keep the everyone safe.

Now, I reside in a different place and the discipline of the society especially the youth were vastly different to Singapore . Their government is authoritarian and everyone if not all follows the rule of the law. Majority of the youth are very disciplined, they respect the elders and the elderly sure had put us in place if we are unruly.

Today, I personally had a hard time explaining it to my three children, who were born and grew up in different society why outings and sleep overs isn’t allowed at this moment? My son was debating with me. For me to make them understand I have to sit them down and made them watch 4 videos to understand. Video of Wuhan, Historical videos of Philadelphia and St. Louis during the Flu Pandemic, hidden videos from Iran and Italy and lastly a video about Flattening the Curve. Let the people from the health agency isolate the infected ones first as to not make their lives difficult. This is a bigger place with more millions of population than Singapore.

I holed them up and we only went out for essentials, although their father continues to work. I felt bad, but because the society outside is different. Although, many are responsible and sensible but there are some also that are not. I don’t want to put my kids at risk. Until the infected person is isolated, then life will be normal again. Until, no one looked at me like I’m a germophobe or over acting because I wiped the elevator buttons with disinfectant, even the Metro seat and the handles, wore a mask ( I have rhinitis guys) in a public place when I pick up groceries. These practices was kind of normal from the place I was before because it that society it was a common understanding, that was how I want to keep them safe and I also wanted to keep my space safe.

In this uncertain times. Be safe everyone.  I saw an article that debunked the theory of heating the nostril will not cure. Curing, I don’t know but we did it during the SARS period and we are not infected. Whatever helps this uncertain times to kill the invisible enemy, we just did it. there’s nothing we lose. God bless you.∼∼Mayo

A Mistaken Marriage Match 5: Pursuit of Murderer in Liao Yue (错嫁良缘系列之燎越追凶)

Chapter 31 This Way can Still Be Considered Hero Rescues the Beauty?

“Why save me?”

   In midst of silence, the man’s gloomy voice was distinctly clear.

 Lou Chen  was sitting on a wooden stool by the window and replied coldly, “The hidden weapon has not been taken out, to be honest, either you can be save or not to save in order for you to live is still uncertain.”

    Lou Chen’s casual response, the man didn’t mind at all as long as she was still willing to help him, that what was most important. The man was evidently the kind who cherished words like gold. He doesn’t like to chat, so it took a long time to spit out the two words, “Thank you .”

    Thinking of her abduction and the means she was brought in, Lou Chen was still not happy about it, and her voice went another degree colder, “Don’t thank me, if you people did not “invite” me forcefully to come, how can I come here to save you? “

    The man’s face suddenly turned rigid and atmosphere of the room suddenly became awkward. “I am sorry. I will guarantee you that I will discipline my subordinates with this unacceptable means. In the future, if the Miss needs any favor from me, I will do my best.” 

Who knows what will happen in the future, and she did not I plan to spend too much time in Liao Yue anyway. Two months already passed to reach a year will be just like a breeze going by. However, this so-called favor, she never took it seriously, nor did she need it. But since he offered it she will not refuse.

    For the first time, he encountered a woman who have fewer words than him, he could not help but felt distressed and abandoned.

    There was a question that he always wanted to ask. At this moment, he asked without any scruples. He always wanted know her name. “I haven’t asked the lady’s name yet?”

    “Lou Chen.”

   Just the name, then no more words. Miss Lou never liked to make anything mysterious.

    After a  long time, when Lou Chen didn’t asked anymore question, the man sighed in his heart, voluntary said, “I am Yu Xian.”

    Lou Chen raised her eyebrow slightly because when she heard it , this sounded like a fictitious name, and she didn’t mind, they were only strangers and their meeting was by chance.

    “This name isn’t a false.” He was not usually a person who liked to explain, but today he unconsciously explained it because he didn’t want her to misunderstand.

    Lou Chen simply nodded, his name be a code name or fiction didn’t matter to her. Therefore, Yu Xian was tangled because Miss Lou did not seem care about him not faking the name.

    Yu Xian was also a person who doesn’t like to talk much. After those very little exchange, the two didn’t talk anymore. Lou Chen although abducted contrary to what other might think she already came to be at peace with it, but Yu Xian still felt a little guilty. In the large room one can feel the strange quietness for a while.

    Yu Xian took a glimpsed of the woman sitting next to the window, she had very aloof temperament, a kind of indifference that was thousands of miles away. After spending a very short period of time, it was not difficult to see her personality, she was such an aloof person. Yu Xian was little curious, wondering what she was thinking that night that made her laughed happily and so freely.

    Miss Lou of course had no idea that Yu Xian was trying to understand what made her laughed that night. If she knew it, she would definitely tell him if he haven’t heard about it… that it was because of one beautiful and poignant romantic love story. 

    “Miss, what you want is ready.”

 The two moved very fast, to be able to prepare everything within half an hour, although the thin blade was not as thin like the one at home, the threads and needles for stitching also looked very rough.

      “Take out these curtains and turn the bed towards the window a little.” Even the two did not understand why Lou Chen want to do it but without hesitation they immediately did what she asked.

    Lou Chen closed the window, and the brightness of the afternoon light coming through the paper window was just right.

    When the two were moving the bed to the designated location, Lou Chen was also preparing the cotton cloth, blade and needles. She cleaned her tools and disinfected it with fire and medicinal juice.

    Lou Chen stood by the bed, holding four silver needles in her hand, and said, “Oh, I forgot to write the anesthetic drugs on the list earlier.”

The subordinates looked at Lou Chen with understanding. They stared her with unapologetic look, their facial expressions clearly saying ‘you did not forget it, that was deliberate!’

    Although they were fuming mad but this instant, they dare not offend her also. The man with the gray coat clenched his fists and said coldly, “I’ll go quickly and buy it now.”

    “No need.” Yu Xian looked at Lou Chen said, “Immediately, get on without it.”

   Considering the pleased and satisfied appearance of Lou Chen while pricking him with acupuncture needles, of course it was obvious, this was her little retaliation.

    The corner of Yu Xian’s mouth slightly grimaced. He knew it would be painful that one would wish to rather die as she pricked the needles but he was not angry. Instead, he felt that earlier she was aloof but right now she was livelier.


Yu Xian’s mind wanted to go crazy, the moment he felt the blade.

    He finally knew the purpose of the four acupuncture needles. He could clearly feel the pain caused by Lou Chen’s incision, but his upper body could not move. The man in gray coat has been wiping Yu Xian’s sweats and the blue veins sticking out reminding him of the pain his master was experiencing but he can only hold his breath at this moment, not afraid to disturb Lou Chen, even the slightest.

    Although he hated this woman for torturing his master, he also admired her at the same time.  The incisions were clean and neat, and they often endure this kind of injury. It was almost a common experience for them to get rid of arrows from their body. They’ve seen so many doctors, but he hasn’t seen one that can be so precise.

    He saw that Lou Chen cut open the flesh and went down a little deeper, but the wound did not expand. After a while, she saw that she picked up another thin blade and did not know what she had done. She only heard a muffled sound from and followed by relieved sound. The hidden weapon that tortured Gongzi for 10 hours has been taken out in no time.

    Lou Chen examined the hidden weapon. It was the size of a copper coin, it was made of iron with eight sharp blades spread along all sides. The hidden weapon was delicately made, and it was not comparable to ordinary homemade weapons like barb arrows. Such a special hidden weapon must have its source.

    Lou Chen secretly memorized the appearance of the hidden weapon, then lowered her head and sutured the wound.

    In fact, with such a wound, King’s Grass can be used it will stop the bleeding right away and the wound will heal in just 3 days. However, at present, King’s Grass was the only thing she had to swap for Jin Yan Hen’s medicine, and Lou Chen will not waste it.

    Finally, the wound was sutured, but the bleeding didn’t stop. She did not know if Yu Xian passed out or he was just keeping his eyes closed quietly. Lou Chen looked at the subordinate and said, “Where is the medicine, I gave you earlier?”

   The man rummaged through the bed and finally found it. After getting the porcelain bottle, he quickly handed it to Lou Chen, “Here.”

    Lou Chen took the medicine and saw that there were a lot of medicine left. He poured it on the wound, wiped it around before wrapping the incision with cloth.

    After the wound was completely bandaged, it was already dark. Lou Chen came to the long table, wrote the oral and topical prescription, and handed it to the man in gray coat, saying, “This is a prescription. The topical mediation  for wound  cloth, it must be changed every day. The oral medication should be taken sooner. If he developed a fever later, you can use cold water to cool him down, but the wound must stay dry. If the wound has completely merged and not torn,  wait 3 more days and then he can get out of bed . ”

    Lou Chen prepared to leave before the explanation, anyway, the place was not far from Anxintang. The hidden weapon was already taken care of and ordinary doctors can do the rest.

    Lou Chen just took one step and the two man blocked her path. The man in gray coat who blocked her said, “Before Gongzi’s injury is healed, Miss, please stay for a few more days.”

    This can still be considered polite request but their actions of the two seem extremely unyielding. What do they want? After forcibly “inviting” someone, they also want to forbid her to leave? Lou Chen grinned, then angrily said, “Do you really think you can stop me?”
