The numbers were climbing rapidly today. The latest number in Thailand is very closed to 1,000 and almost 25,000 all over South -East- Asia +and part of Africa (Somalia)+. Many more are still missing.
My deepest condolence to the family of those who lost their life and my prayer to those who survived.

h3. That’s it for this year
I guess this is the end of this year’s TBOX. Thank you all for participating. It’s been a lot of fun. It’s very unfortunate that the year ends with such a great tragedy. But anyhow, we’ll have to find someway to move on.
I’ll see you again in 2005. (Rite?) Wish you all a successful and happy new year.
