Just look at their faces..

We stand, as it were, on the shore, and see multitudes of our fellow beings struggling in the water, stretching forth their arms, sinking, drowning, and we are powerless to assist them.
-Felix Adler-



Tired face....can you imagine your own child looking just like this poor kid...



I hate to look at this picture...we just threw away ours just becoz it looks inedible ..


We complaint about our house all the time...but what do they have as a shelter..?




They have lost everything....a place not to call home anymore..
...Let's pray together for these poor child...

Hi Sue, it is sad and distressing to see photos like this, especially now in China and Burma.
What? You there feeling tremors? Gosh, not in Malaysia?
I guess must be from Indonesia as they have very active volcanos there.
Hope and pray it was just a tremor....
by the way Sue, it is good to keep at least two flashlights, three or four bottles of water at everyroom, candles and matches, an axe, tin foods and first aid at home for any emergencies. We do...we have bottles of water under our kitchen tables, in bedroom under the bed...and once a week change the water, water the plants with it...
and good to teach your kids what to do in any emergency...
they must know what to do, who to call incase of emergencies.
Only last week a 4 year old boy phoned the cops here....his mother had fainted in the kitchen, and unconcious for sometime. He did not panic but called the cops.
You keep well Sue, Lee.

their innocent faces makes our heart melt..yet we can't do much to help, especially with the attitude of the Junta who refused foreign help..so sad

O yess..Uncle Lee, Malaysia is not safe anymore, our Geography text book need to be edited..we had some minor earthquake in Bukit Tinggi last few months..

We need to learn from the Japanese in these evacuation system

Thanx for ur visit Uncle Lee :-)

poor kids... n here we r complaining all the time,eh?

i cant imagine if (Allah forbids)malaysia has a big quake...it is just a small country n the after effect will be devastating...

but then... if we think again.. everywhere around malaysia has been washed off with some kind of disaster or some sort...that is definitely a sign that something is not right...

whatever the disaster is... i truly pray that masa we all kat mesia... tak la bergegar or anything... my kids will be totally scared...

n yes...taking precautipn is always the best way... budak sekolah kat turki ni.. semua ada drill on what to do masa earthquake... normal la kan esp after the 1999 big earthquake...

u take care eh? tawakkal.. :0)

simah..it is definitely a sign for us to think about..it is just around a corner..

we never had any drill kat sini..since 2004 tsunami..nothing..fire drill pun tak buat apalahi earthquake..
