Hey what is he doing there? I was scratching my head as to what Batam could offer that deserved a visit by Chen Shui Bian. Then maybe he was planning to offer a progress package to Yudhoyono to turn Batam into a satellite Taiwanese industrial estate, competing with Singapore as the number one investor.

Then Habibie jumped out of the box and said he wanted to build a casino in Batam. I think he is a Christian and not a muslim.

So the two, an ex president and a current president, really see eye to eye and think alike. Laughing

The Sneaky President

Chen Shui Bian said he had not lose the face of the Taiwanese during his trip overseas and was proud of what he had done. He sneaked into Libya under the cloud of darkness, refused permission to land in US territories except a short stop over in Alaska, near the north pole when he was heading south to Costa Rica in south America.

Then he used the ruse of fuel shortage to gain entry into Indonesia in a little island more than 3000 miles from Jakarta and overstayed, leading to an investigation by the Indonesian govt.

And he is very proud of all his sneaking around as a Head of State when others will be received with all the plomp and pageantry that a Head of State deserved. Laughing

No wonder they called him Ah Bian.
