Death comes to us all. It's just a matter of how and when. So always be prepared.
"Every soul is bound to taste death" Al-Imran 185.
Last Sunday, Penn State freshman Nublan Zaki Norhadi was killed when he drowned at Abram Falls, near the Great Smoky Mountains national park. The incident occurred roughly at around 7pm on May 24th, but the body was only recovered at 1.30 pm the next day. Read more here and here.
Backpacker magazine recently ranked the Abram Falls trail as the ninth most dangerous hike in America as a result of high exposure to drowning and hypothermia hazards. The article cited 29 deaths on this trail since 1971 as a result of water related accidents.
My prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends. I can only imagine how hard it was to be there during the incident, and how hard it would be to digest the fact that your son is no more. The deceased was expected to go home for the break this Thursday.

I finished my p90x about a month ago but never really had the time to write about it or even take the after pictures. But one thing for sure, the exercise program can really bring you wonders. A picture of me shirtless would be too indecent an exposure to be put in this blog. So these are two pictures taken before and after the program. Compare.

The 10 year old star that appeared in Oscar winning movie, Slumdog Millionaire had his house demolished last Thursday. And to think that the kid was part of one of the most touching movies ever produced. Poor kid. Hollywood could, and should've done something.

So after 4 years of inner and outer struggle, I have made it to the finish line. Tomorrow, I will be officially proclaimed of my achievement, albeit not as handsomely as my other colleges. But hey, I made it!
Drum roll please...
