Repost | Death toll rises to 120,000
The day after christmas, I was still in bed on 7a.m. local time (000GMT) unaware of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake that caused 40-feet tsunami waves which slammed into ten nations across Asia and Africa, namely: Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Bangladesh, the Maldives, Myanmar, Seychelles, Somalia and my country, Malaysia.
It is said to be the largest earthquake that happened anywhere in the world in 40 years . The magnitude of 8 and above is labeled as “Great” and has the average frequency of once every year.
According to the latest new reports, (updated) 63 people was killed in my country in that incident and after shocks were felt throughout west malaysia.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected and their families.

No, they are not edited in any way, perhaps a few expired links/pictures but no content change whatsoever. It’s just purely me — every single immature bit of it. XD
