Pictures courtesy of my cousin Ling in Penang and other penangites. Everyone there's ok, thankfully. Apparently they felt the tremors at 9am and had the 10ft tsunami hit them at 2pm. This I belief. But when I spoke to my mom on the phone yesterday, she claimed the waves were 1,000ft high.......hmmm. Either someone doesn't know their metric conversion or this is just another case of malaysians flooring the throttle on exaggeration. Either way, I hope we all pay a minute's silence for the lives taken all over south asia from this disaster.
