Worries of a Pregnant Expat

I can't help but worry what's happening to our world. Lately, a number of disasters have happened and I wonder what else is to come. I am tense about it not because of my own survival-- but for my soon-to-be-baby. What kind of environmental condition will she be living in years from now?

Today, September 30, 2009 if you flicked on your news channel, you would have seen a series of bad news:
  • the tsunami at Samoa South Pacific ( which initially suffered a 8.0 earthquake)
  • 16 hours after that South Pacifc earthquake... it was the Indonesian earthquake (some tremors were felt in Kuala Lumpur)
  • Typhoon Ketsana which ravaged the Philippines & Vietnam
I just hope that it's not yet too late to change our ways to save the planet. I believe that part of the reason for these disasters could be because of how we have abused the environment. Maybe I am wrong... I don't know. I appreciate some of the establishments that have started charging for plastic bags -- this way it forces people to change their ways. Ikea in Mutiara Damansara and the Bangsar Village Grocer have started charging for plastic bags months ago. I am hoping more establishments will follow.

At this point, all I can request from my readers is to pause for a moment of prayer -- for all those affected by the different calamities that have just happened.


  1. I felt the same way with my first child. Wait until after you deliver and you hold that precious responsibility in your arms.

  2. thanks for posting! i dont know what to expect when the baby comes... but for sure it will be endless worrying!
