WE'RE OK, GUYS!

I didn't plan BISEAN's first blog post for 2009 to be like this...

But for all those who sent emails, comments, SMS, Morse codes and smoke signals demanding we let them know we are alright...well, here. We are alright.

The BISEANers were actually pissing the night away at Clarke Quay last night. Yes, in Singapore.

Too bad what happened to Santika. More than 59 people died last night in a fire *sigh*. Our sincere condolences to the families of the victims.

Santika is just 3 mins walk from my flat in Bangkok (Santika at Ekkamai 9, I live on Ekkamai 10). If it just happened we were in town, the whole gang would be there for sure (But we'll definitely leave early for Q Bar).

Ok, this is just a short post. Just to let our demanding readers know.

Good thing you're all OK. I watched the news and it's really sad. It reminds me of the Ozone disco accident here more than a decade ago.

Well, anyway, Sawatdee Pi Mai!

Pisanu,

We are not your "demanding" readers but rather we love you guys and worry about you....

In fact we are not readers at all but rather family....

Oh, and you have been a very bad boy!

Happy New Years and glad you are alright!

I'm glad all of you are OK.
It's really sad what happened at Santika, and for us Indonesians, we couldn't help but remember what happened in Bali 6 years ago (albeit for different reasons). My heart truly goes out to the families of the victims, and hope that they'll be granted the strength to face this hardship.

I had the pleasure of visiting Santika twice, the place was really awesome and happening, and I had such fond memories there. That's why I'm deeply saddened by this terrible incident, and at the same time, it really reminds me that terrorism aside, bad things can easily and unexpectedly happen to us when we're having so much fun. I sincerely hope that all of you would be more careful and look out for each other because it always pays to be cautious.

In the meantime, have a safe and happy 2009 to Pisanu, Morgan & Sofia. I really enjoyed reading Bisean in 2008. Here's to a better year ahead!
