Living Dangerously

In a short while, I will most probably be bumming around Gurney Drive with Wuan. The seaside is not the best place to be at this moment but we have been planning for this break since the beginning of the year. We are taking our chances and hope that Penang will not be hit by another tsunami. Besides, I need to get away from accessing the Internet for a while to stop my emotions from being overloaded by all the grim images of this catastrophe. This blog will not be updated in the next few days. Take care people.

  1. yes do take a break… but going to gurney drive? i am a little worried for you… but since wuan will be with you, i guess i shouldn’t. have a good time then, peter.

    btw, gurney hotel is a nice hotel. few weeks ago when my brother and his family from singapore were here, they stayed there and i want visiting them couple of times, and twice used the swimming pool and recreation area.

  2. peter, tumpang your blog to post this announcement ok?

    calling volunteers from penang to help evacuate the people in tanjung tokong. meet at terjani clinic at 8.00am tomorrow (28 dec. tuesday).


  3. Yours was one of the first to have news on the tsunami, reading it I instantly called my relatives and friends. It’s a relief hearing that only minor damages in their appliances and friends are ok. Thanks for giving the updates, without it I’d be in the dark.

  4. Peter, your blog was quoted in Canada’s national newspaper, the Globe and Mail, today (December 29). There has been a lot of emphasis in TV news about the European and Canadian tourists, so I was glad the G & M was including voices of people who actually LIVE in South Asia. Take care.

  5. Lucia,
    When I was there, people were still wary but curious.


    Thanks again.

    Happy New Year… and yes, we did have fun at Gurney Drive.

    Glad I could be of help and to hear that they are all right.

    I am back!

    Thank you.

    I was telling what little I knew. I did not know it reached that far. Thank you for the pointing me to that article.

    How long now?

  6. Greetings from Florida…We have been following the tragic news with heavy hearts. We have endured 3 major hurricanes this year, but they pale in comparison to the live lost in the tsunami. Our prayers go out to you all.

  7. Ponyboy,
    Although I was not there immediately after the tragedy, I could still see the destruction unleashed by the waves and the despondent faces of those who were affected and lost everything. This is truly tragic.
