Christmas horror27th Dec – Monday
Spent the whole day with my nephew. Took everyone to shopping malls cos my cousin’s wife wanted to buy cheap clothes. In between we dumped the little tyke at the hotel to rest, and it was those few moments that we checked out the updates on the tsunami disaster all over the afflicted areas.
Thank God we didn’t go to Lumut, as originally planned. Nor did my cousin go up to Penang for Christmas, having opted to visit us in KL instead. And mum’s second choice of holiday was a cruise! Phew!
It’s horrifying to watch it on screen, whatmore those who were there.
I called a few friends who were Penangites, but luckily they were in KL this time around, for one reason or another. Blessings in disguise, in my mind. One was in Penang though he said he was fine.
Geological experts tell us to expect a few more to come, but thankfully of somewhat lesser scale. Yet, still. Goodness knows when Penang can clean up the mess. Or the other countries.
At the end of the day, I reluctantly parted with my nephew. They are planning a first-year birthday thingie for him next month. Dunno if I can make it then. Sigh.
