  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  2. Woe be to Malaysia for another tragedy before M370 is unravelled! May the souls of the departed and their families find comfort on God
