since our region was hit by the devastating tidal wave yesterday, i was wondering if we could face the same situation someday. i mean if there was a tidal wave coming from the south china sea, can we be safe? do we have enough water defence stuff? i wouldn't want to end up like the Maldives. and to anyone who knows someone affected by this tidal wave, i hope all is well.

the replies have been rather sarcastic so far. guess i kind of asked for it myself..=( well, i'm just slightly paranoid and neurotic i guess. anyway, how can we help the people affected? by the way, when i said 'our region', i meant Asia. not specifically, south east asia. anyhow, Malaysia did get affected. so technically i'm not too wrong!=)
the angle of the tsunami has to be correct in order for it the hit singapore. else all we see is just the diverted energies of the waves. singapore has always being protected by the neighbouring countries' position. thou it may just need only one chance for singapore to be hit hard. else until now, we are pretty safe for the moment. who knows what's gonna happen tomorrow rite?
Learnt from an expert interviewed in TCS8 news last night that Singapore is surrounded by neighboring islands or countries which has indirectly helped to bring the effect of the tsunami to the least when it hits us. In this case, it is Sumatera. I agree with briceloh, it may just need only one chance for us to be hit hard. When it comes to natural disaster, you'll never know and be able to predict. The current killing tidal wave has explained it all, and the number of casualties is still rising. What a sad news to end the year..
