Made a couple more #floral #decoupaged #ArtRocks & placed them at the base of one of my #ficus #ginseng #plants. There are 2 miniature glass #Mastodon figurines in the pot too.

I have 4 ficus ginseng aka #Chinese #banyan plants. I propagated 3 extra plants from one strong mother plant. I bring them inside for Fall-Winter. They stay outdoors from May-October - depending on weather/temperature.

Lol reading this chapter from the graded reader from Mandarin Companion and have to chuckle to myself: This is peak Asian mum, for real.

Fyi the poor man is complaining about his mum's relentless matchmaking efforts.

Speaking of genocide, being committed by the state is getting less attention. Sure, we haven't seen mass bombings and killings like the Israeli government is doing in yet. Or maybe the Chinese regime is better at concealing and propaganda. Or doing silent genocide. Why kill and destroy while you can enslave them, force them to work in cotton plantations, and discard their language and customs for your Great Han (DaHua) race?!.

When SARS broke out in #Taiwan in ‘03, the WHO denied Taiwan’s request for the virus’ DNA to combat it.

The WHO told Taiwan’s health minister at the time to ask China.

#China refused the request and 137 people died in the following four months.

Taiwan has been denied WHO membership for five decades due to political reasons, says Dr. Chien-Jen, Taiwan’s Minister of Health at the time of the SARS outbreak.

This has cost Taiwan innocent lives.

“WHO should help every country learn from each other to improve global health,” said Dr. Chen.

“We’ve cooperated with Asian Pacific countries to build good healthcare systems as good as ours… can help. And Taiwan has been helping.”

China’s political attitude to international health bodies doesn’t only hurt Taiwan.

The government hid the truth about COVID-19, hurting millions of people around the world.
