But apparently not so.
The fight is apparently still on for the High Speed Rail (HSR) project between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
The Japanese are apparently still not giving up.
I was actually happy when I read this news by The Japan Times earlier this morning,
Japan makes shinkansen safety pitch in bid for Malaysia-Singapore rail contract
I hope the Japanese get the project.
I'm just not comfortable with the Chinese getting every project in the country.
It's just not strategically wise to let that happens.
Anyway, I always prefer the Shinkansen for the HSR as I posted here,
Another thing is that, if the Japanese get this project, people can't say we are selling off the country to the Chinese.
We can say, "Hey, the Japanese got some of it too, what!"
It's good that way, okay.
It shows our country is still good for business too.
Not everything sapu by the Chinese.
As pointed out in the Japan Times article, the Singaporeans may lobby for the Shinkansen too as they would prefer the proven track record, especially on safety.
Yes, go Singapore!
Here, another Shinkansen video,
Okay, need to work now.
