Exactly One Year Ago

One year ago today, I was sitting in this exact same spot in my girlfriends HDB flat in Singapore, surfing the Internet when I came across the news of the tsunami.

I remember being online almost all day refreshing the news pages for updates on the tsunami.
I remember calling my parents in Penang and being relieved to find out they were safe
I remember updating my girlfriend and her family every other hour on the death toll
I remember the shock of realising the horror of it all.

It's been one year since that fateful day when countless Asians died under the force of nature.

May their memories live forever.
