I received an email from a dear friend who has known, since aged 8, the Singaporean hostage who was killed in Mumbai.

Not having caught up with the news over the weekend, I only read about this tragedy today, and am deeply saddened.

It could have been any one of us.

My heart really goes out to the family. I too got married last year, just like she did. I can't even begin to imagine the tremendous grief of her husband.

Roboman and I talked about this, reminding ourselves that life on earth is fleeting, and that we should focus on what's really important.

Yes, I was saddened indeed - and what made it worse was that it seemed so senseless...what a waste of a beautiful blossoming life. Still, God has His plans, though some things are def too profound for me to ever understand.

Pn a lighter note, I like the new look of your blog...and the neat slideshow and blurb!
