First of all, I would like to give my condolences to those who are affected by earthquake and tsunami in Japan. We have been watching the news since last Friday. I was saddened and shocked to see what happened. Really hope there will be no further disaster any time soon. We just send our thoughts and prayers to all the Japanese people… wish you well… may you be comforted. And hope the situation will ease as the time goes by.
