Tsunami Strikes 2009

Breaking News

An earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 7.9 struck Indonesia on Wednesday, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The quake was recorded about 33 miles from Padang, the capital city of West Sumatra, which is home to more than 800,000 people.

Several buildings were damaged, Metro TV reported. People were seen running out of their homes and toward the hills.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued a tsunami watch for Indonesia, India, Thailand and Malaysia.

NOAA could not immediately say whether the quake generated a tsunami, but such advisories are issued when a quake has the potential to cause one. On Tuesday, a magnitude 8.0 quake -triggered tsunami killed at least 84 in the Samoan islands and Tonga.

Breaking News

Tsunami strikes at Samoan Island late tuesday or our local time at 6:00pm (Malaysian Time). A huge emergency effort is under way in the Samoan Islands after towering tsunami waves triggered by an 8.0 earthquake left dozens dead and entire villages flattened or submerged. Full article please follow the link with CNN (CNN link).

Various area in Malaysia like Serdang, Petaling Jaya, Selangor Malaysia have signal of earthquake for those resided in high rise office building, apartments, condominium and etc.

However, I don't think Tsunami will hit us who live in Kuala Lumpur or Peninsular Malaysia which is protected by Sumatera (Indonesia) and Borneo (Sabah & Sarawak). However, for those who is happily enjoy their holidays in famous beach areas in Taiwan, Japan, Philiphines, Sabah Malaysia will be more cautious as the Tsunami waves is very great like what we sufferred in 2004.

The 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami killed over 300,000 people with many bodies either being lost to the sea or unidentified. Some unofficial estimates have claimed that approximately 1 million people may have died directly or indirectly solely as a result of the tsunami. According to an article in Geographical magazine (April 2008), the Indian Ocean tsunami of December 26, 2004 was not the worst that the region could expect. The first waves hits India then Sri Lanka, and the tsunami waves never rest and hit to South East Asia where Sumatra Indonesia and Phuket Island and several other islands in Thailand were badly hit by the Tsunami.

Readers please remind your friends who is leisuring or plan to holiday in the beach to evacuate yourselve or postpones your trip as soon as possible to prevent this tradegy happen.

Sex discrimination at work place. Is this true?

I came across an article lately and feel that i should put this up to share. At a very stereotype of view, i personally think that sex discrimination does exist in the office whether it is your call or isn't.

There are few scenarios that i would like to share here. Just enjoy reading and look how true is it. Respect the women!!!

The 1st scenario
" When your subordinate display family photo on the table"

If your subordinate is a 'He', you feel "wow!! He taking care of his family, a responsible man.

If your subordinate is a 'She', you feel "career is not important for her; do not expect she will do her best to contribute in works!"

The 2nd scenario
"When your subordinate table is very messy or untidy"

If your subordinate is a 'He', you feel "he is so hardworking, till do not have extra time to tidy up the table.

If your subordinate is a 'She', you feel "she is so untidy, sure not organized!

The 3rd scenario
"When your subordinate is talking with other colleagues"

If your subordinate is a 'He', you feel "he must be discussing about the new project, so aggressive.

If your subordinate is a 'She', you feel "gossiping again!!! Gifted paparazzi!!

The 4th scenario
"When your subordinate is working overtime"

If your subordinate is a 'He', you feel "it's very difficult to hire such hardworking employee anymore.

If your subordinate is a 'She', you feel "ladies has limited capabilities, need to spend so much time on such little things.

The 5th scenario
"When your subordinate got promoted"

If your subordinate is a 'He', you feel "he must have great potential"

If your subordinate is a 'She', you feel "she must be having affairs with the boss"

The 6th scenario
"When your subordinate applies leave"

If your subordinate is a 'He', you feel "he hasn't apply leave for a long time, should go for relax"

If your subordinate is a 'She', you feel "seems like she always apply leave, is she going for job interview"

So, what say you? Do you think sex discrimination exists? i pity the women.

City Tour @ Tokyo, Japan (Part 2)

The Day Tour @ Tokyo really is a mouth-watering experienced where both of us really feel that it fills up our eager to know more about Tokyo.

Well besides sight-seeing japanese food and the night life are the one that i miss most after return to Kuala Lumpur. The foods are mouth-watering (sushi and udon) and the night life is damn entertaining (no shops close b4 00:00, what do you think, women? i think most women like it damn alot)

Here are some photos taken @ night of Tokyo.

Back to shopping around at Tokyo you surely will suprised and shocked with the excellent services provided by the sales personnel in the store. Their attitude is superb and very polite. I think none of the world can provide such a friendly and warm services (no wonder their retail businesses are so good - Excellent Service, ichiban!!!). Places you shouldn't miss like Shibuya, Shinjuku , Harajuku and Ginza.

Look at the face of Pauline. I bet she really enjoy shopping in Tokyo and look at the damage (OMG).

Well the night view was taken at the famous junction @ Shibuya. One of Tokyo busiest railway station. Look at the crowd on the street. The crowd keeps on coming out from different subway exit at Shibuya Station.
