clash in karachi

you must be wondering what has this gotta do with anything right? a city like karachi and the political unrest that it is now facing. well this little story is so linked to me right now coz i am suppose to be there in exactly 10 days time!

very stresssss...in a real jumbo now since my meeting city is having a clash of the titans and a bloody one too. i am real sorry to the pakistani's but i am also in a lost coz now the choice of meeting venue is uncertain and to move 50 people from around the world in this short period of time is not funny!

actually this is not the first time i have face this "nomadic" problem, seems like we are a magnet of some sort for trouble to brew!

somewhere in 1998 colombo...tamil tigers...
in year 2000 people power in manila
year 2003 suppose to be in beijing...bird flu
year 2005 nepal...protest against the king.
year 2006 caught a typhoon in manila
year 2007 bangkok...military control, it was surprisingly very "normal" and "peaceful"
karachi??

what next?? i think i become contingency planning expert la.
