A lonely footstep on the white sandy beach of Batu Ferringhi, taken on 5th December 2004, when I was in Penang, for my Level 1 Japanese test.
The beach was nice, filled with activities and the waves were calm, even far calmer and gentler than the waves of the East Coast.
But no one had expected that at noon, 26th December 2004, it became the opposite.

"No disaster befalls in the earth, or in yourselves, but it is in a book before We bring it into existence -- surely that is easy to Allah"
( The Holy Quran; 57:22 )

" We (God) will surely test you through some fear, hunger, and loss of money, lives, and crops. Give good news to the steadfast "
( The Holy Quran; 2:155 )

My heart goes to those who lost their loved ones in recent tragedy, and solemnly pray for the departed souls.. May they rest in peace..

See tsunami in action as it hit the BATU FERRINGHI beach at high noon, exactly at the same spot where I onced sat and took a break with a friend on my Penang Trip last 5th Dec 2004. In this tragedy, about 52 people died in Penang alone out of 67 death recorded in Malaysia so far.
