Again, we have news of Singaporean killed in overseas. This time round it has happened in Bangkok, and one Singaporean was kill, 2 with minor injuries while another 2 is not yet to be accounted for. The incident took 60 lives and injuring 200 others.

Cause of the disaster might be firecrackers or pyrotechnics which are used for the celebration.

Now I can fully understand why Singapore has ban firecrackers. Because we are living almost side to side and if anything like that would have happen, unimaginable..
