23-Ft Japan Tsunami

What a disaster! According to the news, hundreds have been confirmed dead while hundreds are still missing as a result of this natural calamity. Looking at the pictures posted online, I can't help but just say a silent prayer for all those affected by it.

I know a few people who are in Japan...former classmates & former co-workers as well. I don't know where most of them are located but I can only hope and pray that they are safe and sound. I emailed some and got replies from some letting me know that they're doing okay. Thank God!

The massive tsunami was the result of a very strong earthquake which was measured at about 8.9 in magnitude which according to some only happens once every century. Sadly, these natural calamaties are very hard to predict...especially earthquakes. It's probably one natural calamity I am most afraid of simply because I grew up in a country that's in the 'ring of fire'. I guess the feeling of 'uncertainty as to when an earthquake will actuall hit is the part that scares me the most.

Anyway, let's all keep all those affected by this calamity in our thoughts and prayers.

napuyat ako dahil dito. when I felt very nasal while sleeping, I had to get my dose of nasal spray tapos I turned on the TV. ang gulat ko talaga so I was glued on CNN till 4:00 a.m. it's devastating just looking at the video clips on TV.

have a relaxing weekend.

Overhauled!
