Magic answers sought on China investments

Residents of western Pacific Ocean island turn to "magic man" to help themselves decide on Chinese investments.

    Leaders from the Association of Southeast Asian Nation - or ASEAN - are meeting in Brunei.

    The meeting will discuss some of the bigger issues facing the region.

    But as two of the world's most powerful countries, China and the US scramble for influence there, the poorer, smaller
    nations find themselves caught up in the wrangling.

    Marga Ortigas reports from the small island of Yap, where a "magic man" is the source of answers for many people.

    He has been quite busy of late, with customers wanting to know whether to welcome a Chinese investment or not.
