    I live in Singapore and my country is lucky, b'cos I don't experience any natural disasters at all due to its location.

    Anyway, my condolences to the victims of the natural disasters.

    Re: Natural Disasters: Do you have to deal with them?

    I was actually on my way to Indonesia when the tsunami happened. It was summer vacation and my family decided to Bali for a trip. I didn't even know about the tsunami until the next day. Considering how close Bali is to Java I'm pretty lucky I guess... Next thing I knew my mom was freaking out on me on the phone.... oT_T. Saying I shouldn't have been there. <Parents divorced....was with my dad> The next few days were still fun though.


    ***** Oh yeah xantos ****
    I also went to Singapore during my trip. You have a lot of rules there. I bought a souveneir mug that says a bunch of them like "no picking flowers...??"

    Nothing happening here (the Netherlands).
    But the people here really suck cuz they complain about the weather if it rains a bit.

    (If a tornado comes my way I will cut it or die trying.)

    Different people has different beliefs when it comes to the natural disaster. However, the effects are the same because it surely brings sorrow and sufferings to those who are involved. I live in Kuantan, Malaysia. Every year we had to deal with flood when the monsoon season comes. This year, the southern part of Malaysia had tom deal with a terrible flood that has never been experienced before. It was said to be the worst in about 40 years. Many people had to leave their homes for about a month. Can you imagine? Many of the belongings were lost. Although it is a natural disaster, I think the corruption of the system played some role. The money that should be used to clean up the drains is taken by those liars(contractors & Community leaders who are responsible to clean the drains). They took the money but the work has never been done. Curse them.

    and this is the crazy world we live in, money ova morals and human life, they're about the all might dollar, and not worried about who is effected by their corrupt actions. I hate ppl like that, how can u just turn ur back on ppl who need help. its just wrong.

    Re: Natural Disasters: Do you have to deal with them?

    That's part of our lives already, the natural disasters...We had to deal with it, no matter what, just to survive...It may be hard, we feel fear when this things happen, but we need to fight & face the challenge of nature...This could also be a call of nature to or our Creator...we just need always had that big faith, to surpass all these...

    Here in the city I lived, we don't experience so much of any natural disasters, like floods which is very common to our country, when there would a big typhoon coming...but still I, we are lucky that we don't experienced hurricane, tornado, or any big disasters here in my country, as well as the city I lived...

    like what my science teacher said about earthquakes and people living in california."If you don't want *put in natural disaster* then don't live in an area prone to *said natural disasters*

    but he said that at a standpoint where nothing ever happens here where we live
