I just can’t write anything knowing what’s happening in beautiful Japan. Usually devastating news seems really far away, but the blogging community makes the world shrink and my thoughts are fixated on two wonderful bloggers. Kaho of Chuzai Living who has family in Japan and she’s currently expat living in Jakarta – thank goodness. Starletshay is more of a travel vlogger and before I went to Osaka I was so grateful for her delightful posts from her country.
Shay experienced the earthquake in Tokyo and I feel worried about her reading her tweets and how scared she is.
It really makes me feel that by some random stroke of luck Singapore is sheltered by the surrounding landmasses and is safe. I take so much for granted. I can’t imagine how scary it must be to be stranded or be in the danger zone or know your family is there. Starletshay’s family is in Hawaii and so she is naturally worried about them as well as there are reports that the Tsunami is about to strike the shores there. It has just struck and thank goodness the waves were not as bad as expected.
For those who haven’t heard the news yet, Japan has been hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami.
