News from Japan
Judy asked whether the Japan Earthquake affected us in Singapore. No it did not. No tsunamis hit the shores of Singapore. I was worried for a Japanese friend and e-mailed him yesterday. Just heard that he and his family are safe and sound. A harrowing night for them as power was cut and transportation halted. Most had to spend Friday night at their place of work. He was about an hour north of Tokyo. I was with him visiting Sendai for a conference 15 years ago. From the news footage, the conditions in Sendai after the earthquake are really bad. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
