TOKYO—A magnitude-6.7 earthquake shook northeast Japan on Thursday morning, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The quake struck around 2151 GMT off the coast of Iwate Prefecture, around 500 kilometers northeast of Tokyo, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency. The temblor registered a lower 5 on the Japanese intensity scale in parts of Iwate and Aomori prefectures, and 3 in parts of Fukushima Prefecture, where the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex is located.

A 50-centimeter tsunami warning issued for Iwate Prefecture was later lifted.

Tak Fok Hong Kong Seafood Restaurant

My elder sister bought the entire family for a crab dinner, as a celebration for Father's day. She told us that Tak Fok Seafood Restaurant is so popular and and there's always a long wait for tables. Well, I have been craving for crabs, so I didn't mind to wait. 

The tables and chairs are placed so close to another that there are hardly room to move. The crabs are very cheap (RM30/kg) but other dishes are quite pricey (small portion). One thing that they need to improve is the time efficiency. The staff kept forgetting what we have ordered and we needed to keep on reminding them. 

 You can choose the flavour you like

 Non-halal food

 Kam Heong Fried Crab @ RM30/kg

 Butter Fried Crab @ RM30/kg *meaty & fragrant*

 Chili Crab (Spicy & Sour) @ RM30/kg

 Deep Fried Tofu Served with Thai Chilies Sauce @ RM10 *delicious*

 Salted Fried Mantis Prawn @ RM30 (big) *quite good & crunchy but a little bit expensive*

 Stir-fried Lotus & Sausage @ RM15

 White Rice @ RM1.50/ bowl

Happy Father's Day!

Newborn Baby Body Found in Sentul

Another dumped baby, this time in Sentul.

The first thing I did in this morning after washing my face was reading newspaper. I felt so angry and disappointed when reading the following news:

The body of a new born baby was found in the parking area near the trash bin at Sentul Utama apartment. According to the police chef, next to the baby was a plastic bag containing the umbilical and placenta. He did not dismiss the possibility of the baby being thrown from a high place based on the serious injuries to the baby's head. Maybe the person wanted to throw the baby into the trash bin but missed the target.

This kind of 'baby dumping' news always been published in the newspaper, as what I see, the causes of baby dumping might be 1) underage pregnancies 2)  However, porn might be the major reason behind baby dumping. 

I still could remember my lecturer told us students this: "If you don't want your baby, please don't ever throw it or kill it, bring it to me and I will give the baby a warm growing environment." 

I have so much thoughts and feelings on this issue. Nowadays, porn is easily accessible and for those underage or naive teens, they just wanted to enjoy the excitement and  they thought it's the social trend. It is not a NO WAY to those couples who are mature enough in thinking as they know the responsibilities. For those teens, please think properly before you act! Please consider carefully about what will be happened in the future, think about the unexpected, take on the responsibility! If you can't get the solution, ask the elder people who can make a rational decision.
