It is 2am in the morning and suddenly I remembered that I am a guest blogger at a Tsunami blog set up by some Penangites. I admit that the last tsunami’s effect has gotten off me and I had even forgotten my blogspot password. But the urge to pen my thoughts are strong, so I finally found my password and wrote at the tsunami penang group blog. My entry is more on my thoughts.
At this moment, I cannot digest much of all the locations, numbers etc. All I care is how it will affect my life. Maybe it is some selfish thoughts but then, if you have 4 children under your care, you can’t help but feel very vulnerable.
After all, we had seen the devastating effects of the tsunami on the people in Phuket, Penang, Bandar Acheh, Sri Lanka and etc. All those horrifying things can and may happened to us here in Penang.
I just joked with a group of guys on MSN. I told them, “Hey, you guys better say what you wanted to say to me NOW or else…. Who knows…Penang may be flattened overnight.” But this may be true, isn’t it?
Then, Wingz, a guy with a son, told me how he had prepared an emergency kit complete with first aid kit etc. I told him that I don’t have a single thing ready. I did not even remember to bring my handphone down when I left my apartment just now.
Well, I am not someone who worries unecessary but nevertheless, I don’t think I am going to sleep so soon. God, please keep us safe from harm. Please have mercy on us. Grant me a peaceful mind. Amen.
