Quake rocks Sichuan

So today is the fifth day after the massive earthquake hit Sichuan, China that expected to have killed up more than 50,000 people. It has been a real bad year for China. First the freezing snow, then Tibetan`s human rights riot, and now the 7.9 magnitude quake. Not only you guys, my eyes weep whenever i read the related articles in the newspapers and saw the pictures and reports on TV.

Never give up to save lives. (Reuters)

It is even incredibly hard on those parents who lost the only child they have as anger had also focused on several school buildings. More than thousands students were trapping beneath the collapsed building. Anyway i deeply wish those who perished in the quake rest in peace.

To sincerely show your condolences, please give today. Stop hesitating. Action speaks louder. Take it as a gift that could speed relief to tens of thousands of survivors in need who have lost theirs homes and loved ones.

Will their dreams come true? Yes you can change their lives.(Reuters)

Wait! Dont get me wrong. I still remember the tropical cyclone struck in Myanmar that up to 120,000 may have died. I beg the military regime would open the door and let in more aid quickly from the NGOs. Stop worsening the condition, please.

天災真可怕 災民的打擊更不堪設想
一個地震 家毀人亡 真讓人触目惊心啊
透過這種方式把我們的爱心献出去 別再等啦
嘿朋友 雖知道施比授更爲有福 行動吧
所有的生存者 你們面前還有漫長的日子
要堅強的爬起來 勇敢快樂的向前慢走哦

Just yesterday, I heard from the radio saying that there's a family in China having a new born baby on the day of the earthquake. In order to appreciate the gift from heaven that they're having, they named their baby 震生。In addition, the man of the family had also decided to donate his salary of a YEAR in order to help those refugees. Guess how much is that?!?! It's just around SGD2000!!!!
So...always be contented and think before spending on unnecessary items. :D
