Iíve been hearing some ridiculous tales concerning the Chinese fleet visit to Malacca in the 15th century.
One version says it brought Chinese warriors to help defend Malacca against Siam.
Another nuttier version even claims that the Malacca sultan prostrated at the feet of Zheng He.
Therefore I need to clear up this issue once and for all.
The truth is
China never bothered to send any warriors to Malay lands bcos they knew that their feminine Chinese men are useless for defending anything
and even more useless for attacking the technologically superior Malay powers.
Large Calibre Malay Cannons
Common Era Malay Ships
That is why when Zheng He visited Malacca, he only brought 500 Chinese maidens led by imperial Princess Hang Li Po to be diddled by masculine Malay men.
