MY HIGHEST STATISTIC :) :) :) :) :) :)

1,939. Please click the graph

On 1/18/2010 my statistic shot up to 1,939.

The top post was ‘Freezing Weather In Florida‘.

It got 1,390 hits.

I got a few links from Russia; the largest country in the world.

Russia is a beautiful country with lots of beautiful historical buildings.

The Russian government does not demolish historical buildings.

But in Terengganu, Malaysia a row of historical heritage buildings were demolished.

Thank you and I hope to get more links from all around the world 🙂

I hope that one day I can visit Russia.
