Tsunami hits Malaysia (more pictures)

The killer tsunami which hit South Asia has now claimed more than 29,000 lives including 58 in Malaysia. More death are to be expected. It's indeed a very sad way to end the year. I sincerly hope there won't be any extravagant celebration for the coming New Year 2005 because of this disaster. The figures are getting worst day after day. These pictures captured the moments during and after the wave that lashed through Penang. Many thanks to zapzone8, wongls, ronn and zendened for these pictures.

The calm before the coming havoc. The usual family stroll along Gurney Drive about to take the turn for the worst!

First series of wave to hit Gurney Drive


All hell breaks loose!

I have been watching the news, but admit this website has educated me on Tsunami events. I feel so sad for all the ones alive who have lost everything. I wish them all the best and hope that everyone would send a small donation. 5.00, 10.00, whatever they can afford. I guess we will never know the devastation Asia is suffering, maybe my 10.00 donation will feed a family, if even for a day.
