Of Earthquakes and Tsunamis

You must have heard by now about the earthquake that created tsunamis that devastated coastal cities in Asia.

Singapore is blessed by its geographical location. The only effects felt here were slight tremors - and only by a handful of people.

But oh, the carnage in the region!

The first news that trickled in said that tidal waves have hit the beaches of Penang. Next, we heard that Sri Lanka has declared a state of disaster. Later on, a news ticker at the bottom of the TV screen said that many on Phi Phi island are feared dead.

As the death toll rises, our hearts go out to the families who have lost their loved ones.

The day after Christmas... who would have thought...
