Not so long ago, Irrawady in its editorial of 11th August, expressed its fears about China as follows.  It said that at that time, that  the Chinese weapons and economic influence are both spreading in Myanmar and the day may not be far off when China’s shadow will become so big that it will completely engulf Myanmar.
 

Nepal: China on a Rescue Mission:

Paper No. 6720                         Dated 30-Dec-2020

It looks that China has been taken by surprise on the developments in Nepal which culminated in Prime Minister Oli  convincing the President to immediately dissolve the Parliament giving no chance for an alternate government to be formed.

This may be read  along with my earlier paper on Nepal that discussed the dissolution of the Parliament in Nepal by the President on the recommendation of the Prime Minister.  More details have come to light since then,though there is some confusion on the sequence of events.
