Chinese are becoming a serious problem to this Country. They will end being the 4th largest community in the near future. Its high time Authorities took a closer look at how they are residing in this country and deport all illegal non-nationals.

Govt and relevant authorities should inspect Chinese restaurants weekly. Should have imposed different laws as well.
