Dawn of a New Day

I shudder to imagine the tragic news that will emerge following
massive tsunamis that struck Penang and many other south Asian
countries yesterday. Please pray for those affected.

  1. I read the papers this morning. I did not know anything about the earthquake, though I felt the tremors yesterday morning around 9am. I was in the office (working on Sun!) and thought something was wrong with me. Why was I shaking?

    Saw the photos in the papers. Felt really choked. Was going to blog on something trivial, no mood to blog now. So sad.

  2. Peter, you don’t know me, but please know that I am praying for everyone back home. I live in the US now, and I am searching all over for news outside of the mainstream media. Please keep me/us updated.

  3. peter,
    Thank God you guys are all ok, btw. is the effect of the tidal waves only on Bt ferringgi side ? Is B`worth and the Jelutong side affected at all coz` no news of damage has been being reported or blogged ?? plse advise, thanks

  4. Rick,
    No news about Butterworth. I think the Jelutong shoreline was somewhat sheltered by the mainland. The tsunami that overwhelmed Telok Bahang, Batu Ferringhi, Tanjung Bungah and Tanjung Tokong came from the open sea.

    The bridge was visually inspected by engineers and deemed structually sound.

    Thanks. God bless you.
