Why are Malaysian patriots irritated?

Malaysia eyes closing embassy in North Korea

When we think about why North Korea chose Malaysia as the place to murder Kim Jeon Nam, it's understandable that some Malaysian citizens are irritated.
The answer would be that North Korea thought criticism against the country caused by assassination in Malaysia wouldn't affect North Korean position in the world.
In other words, Malaysia had been looked down on by North Korea.

Why does CRRC want to build the train factory?

CRRC’s Springfield factory opens as Boston Orange Line cars on test

It means that shipping cost of the rolling stocks is higher than wage gap between Chinese and US workers.

Why can people enjoy dancing and singing?

Hong Kong's wildest dining experience

Neither dancing nor singing is what I want to do.
Every time I was forced to dance or sing, I used to feel embarrassed.

Basically, I don't have good motor nerves. Then, it's not approximate for me to dance.
Furthermore, I can't sing in appropriate tone, just because I'm tone deaf.

Both of dancing and singing are nightmare.
