我的孤单北半球 - Massive 8.9 quake in Japan, Tsunami Alert in California

March 11th 2011, sunny day

I though I was not going to write any diary until I go back home next week due to tireness after work, but today marks a massive disaster in history that trembled my soul as soon as I woke up. The news, the emails, the messages in FB... all about Japan's massive 8.9 quake and Tsunami happened when I was already in dreamland last night.

It's the very first time that I'm away from home, away from my loved ones that I receive such shocking news about natural disaster hitting Asia. Though it's not affecting my homeland, but still it hit Asia.. I don't feel good anyway, my soul was kinda get strolled away at the hotel cafe in the morning, where I use to watch the news while eating breakfast before going to work. Worst earthquake in Japan's history, breaking a record in this 300 years... What's worse, many other areas around the world received Tsunami alert, including where I am right now.. *sigh*

The National Weather Service list includes Japan, Russia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Fiji, Mexico, New Zealand, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru and the United States.

Yes, the USA, apparently the Pacific coastline, including California's bay area. Aawww... some areas near the coasts had started evacuation in the morning. The latest update that I received was Hawaii observed waves as high as 7 feet or so... The port in Santa Cruz had been affected, boats and people gone missing into the Pacific Ocean... =(

I'm safe, no worries. I just feel really bad today. That's why I think I should keep this page in my diary.

Last saturday I dipped my hands into the Pacific Ocean, and I'll never forget how excited I was the first time to touch an icy cold ocean!!! Today it takes away life...

Perhaps this is the start of 2012... I pray...

17 miles drive

I pray that the ocean water will always be this clear, and it will always be this calm... so that years or decades later, I can still come back here and recall the memories as it was just like yesterday.

God bless..
