Quote:

"China Wine" is the title of a 2007 pop song released by the Singapore singer Sun Ho that also features Haitian American artist Wyclef Jean.

"China Wine" trended when news broke today about a misappropriation of SGD$50 million (US$39 million) in church funds at City Harvest Church, one of the richest churches in Singapore. City Harvest's founder, Pastor Kong Hee, happens to be married to Sun Ho — and the funds in question apparently went to bankroll her singing career.

Well, compared to what other churches do with their tithes, this one isn't that bad at all.
