The recent 8.9 magnitude earthquake that happened in Japan few months ago made my cousin come back home unexpectedly. He was stationed in Japan as one of the mechanical engineers for their company and eventhough his training and work were not yet done, their company decided to let them go home because during that time, the nuclear threat was already becoming intense.
I could not help myself but to feel sad and scared when my cousin is relaying stories about their ordeal. He was just so frightened and even thought that it was already the end of the world. The series of aftershocks made them so panicky but thankfully, he is back in the country now. He is still working up to now and I’m not sure when and where he’ll be stationed once again. I learned that he has a new car and a girlfriend and I’m excited for him. He is also in a marrying age, but I hope he’d invest first on something like say gold apart from his motorbikes and car.
