I live in the midwest of the USA in a very small town of only 3,000. My city has the widest mainstreet in the United States and we also invented the Eskimo Pie dessert. Those are our two claims to fame. :D Here's a pic of the mainstreet.....

Yup, actually the tsunami hit the northern part of malaysia but I'm living in the east part so my place wasn't affected....

Around 60 people in Malaysia are the casualties of the tsunami and some are still missing so I hope they are safe.... :sad: :angel: I hope everything will be ok soon.....

Anyway, I would love to visit all the places.. if I can some day.... so beautiful.... :bounce:
