Why China is giving two pandas to Singapore, not to Malaysia?

Although Malaysia has been aggressively lobbying China to loan pandas to Zoo Negara, but the lottery goes to Singapore.

I think it is due to several reasons.

Firstly, Chin Peng is ill-treated and denied his rights to return to Malaysia as per the peace agreement signed in Hatyai. This hostile move against their overseas comrade is giving unfriendly gesture to the China Communist party..

Secondly, China is not happy with Malaysia in “occupying” Pulau Layang-Layang in the disputed Spratly Islands.

Thirdly, Zoo Negara housekeeping is in pathetic state, who can guarantee the pandas can return home safely after 10-year of leasehold. Teoh Beng Hock under the custody of MACC could be mysteriously found dead, hence anything can happen to these pandas in the Bolehland.

Lastly, We have enough monkeys in the Parliament, why do we need cute pandas for attracting more eyeballs?

SINGAPORE — Visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao met here Wednesday evening with Singaporean President S. R. Nathan, with both exchanging views on further developing bilateral ties between the two countries.

President Hu said as the two countries are to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations next year, China is ready to provide Singapore with a pair of pandas for joint research to further enhance the friendly feelings between the people of the two countries.
