Another tragedy occurred closer to home. A dragon boat practice turned tragic after the boat capsized at the Macallum Street Ghaut in Penang, which claimed the lives of 5 teenage students and one teacher.

My deep heartfelt condolences goes out to the parents, friends and relatives of the deceased. It is truly gut-wrenching when a life is taken so suddenly at such a young age. I can't begin imagine how overwhelmingly distraught their loved ones must be right now.
Let's offer a moment of silence and prayer for the poor unfortunate souls and their loved ones.
Right now, I feel really lucky to be alive and still surrounded by people I love.
