I got this e-mail from my aunt. It's one of those where you forward to eveyone and I'm not sure how credible is this. However, even if you do not believ this, a precaution might be good. So stay away from the beaches on 22nd July 2009! I would stay away from the beach till August is here =/ Yea, abit Kiasi but my life's not worth gone like that and I'm sure yours too. Anyway, here's the content of the forwarded e-mail:

Better be safe than sorry....
Hi,

Please be more cautious as the warnings has been given.

Attached a photo for u.



I just received this message from a colleague. I don’t know the source of the message; I also don’t know the credibility of the content, but just beware.

Below is the content on the message:

“Hello there. I just wanted 2 let you know that please stay away from the beaches all around in the month of July. There is a prediction that there will be another tsunami hitting on July 22nd. It is also when there will be sun eclipse. Predicted that it is going 2 be really bad and countries like Malaysia (Sabah & Sarawak), Singapore, Maldives, Australia, Mauritius, Si Lanka, India, Indonesia, Philippines are going 2 be badly hit. Please try and stay away from the beaches in July. Better 2 be safe than sorry. Please pass the word around. Please also pray for all beings.”

There you go. Believe it or not, it's up to you. Even if I do not believe it, I would stay awayyyyyyyy and so should all of youuuuu!!!!

*spread this around please!*

and if anyone realised that it's actually a prank of if there's a source that gives credibility to this, please tell me ;) Too busy to check, yet.

EDIT: I've got comments from people who have been sourcing the truth about this "news" / "prediction". Check out what they have to say by clicking on the this post's title.

  3. Greg.. u damn crazy. you rather stay here than die with your family. Hahaha...

    Anyway, I don't think so it will affect Tawau. I think Tip of Borneo is more exposed to the risk.

  4. Hey there, am just a random reader of ur blog post. Though ur worry, just wanna tell u that this is just a hoax spreading all around. How can these people predict such a big tsunami when the official organization, the NOAA Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, which is supposed to use their high-end technique to predict such disasters didnt even release any alert or announcement? Have a look at this: http://www.prh.noaa.gov/ptwc/

    besides, look carefully at picture, the fellow who created it cant even spell the word disaster properly=) so u can actually tel how reliable it is^^

  5. Distaster? Someone here is trying to spoil the fun with a spelling error. Credibility of report = significantly reduced. Whatever it is, all we should do is to pray for the best protection; going away from the beach is no good suggestion cause from all Tsunami incidents we heard of, none failed to go across a land area for a few hundred KMs.

  6. Thx py, it's great to hear about that as I have not found the time to straighten up the facts abt this. I didn't even realize the spelling error until you have mentioned it.

    -

    Dear someone, it is a good suggestion or not is up to your thoughts. When people thought that this is real, they are only doing good deeds by trying to get ppl away from danger. Ofcourse when they mentioned that ppl should stay away from the beach, they mean those beaches which are affected, not those over the lands from the affected area.

  9. This is so incredibly stupid! It is just another internet hoax to scare people! Tsunami's can't be predicted, just as earthquakes can't be predicted. If they could predict tsunamis, especially down to a date and a specific timeframe, don't you think they would have warned the people in Dec. 2004 and saved a quarter of a million lives!!! Just because there will be a solar eclipse doesn't mean a catastrophe will happen. Many solar eclipses have happened and no terrible disasters have occurred. Don't fuel this fear frenzy by passing this along or posting it without doing your homework and educating yourselves!

  10. This is completely FALSE!!!

    When Asia is not hit by financial crisis, the west creates some terror and Psychological threat!! DONT BELIEVE this rubbish quake. pure B.S.



    Could be a conspiracy, the truth is U.S. is detonating a powerful nuclear bomb to shake the whole of Asia and they'll do it in the Pacific! hence, the tsunami! True, there might be a Tsunami, but it's not because of Eclipse, U.S. just coincided the Eclipse with their detonation!! Weapon of the 22nd Century
