6:18pm, Tremors Felt In KL


Just got home. Sat down in front of my iMac. A glass of icy cold water by my side. As I was about to check my emails, I felt my chair moving slightly from left to right. Then the movement got stronger. The water in my glass started moving in sync. The tremors got so strong, I almost felt like someone was swaying my chair continually for a whole minute. Not sure if it’s Samoa again – but I hope the folks there are well prepared for a possible 2nd Tsunami. If I almost pee my pants here, I can only imagine what they are facing over there.

UPDATE: It was Padang, Indonesia. No wonder the tremors felt so strong.

    Wow, what an experience! I thought the tremors came from Indonesia?

    Setiawangsa. I guess if you’re driving or walking – chances are you may not feel it. But if you were like me, sitting still, then chances are you’ll feel the sway.

    Was in Bangsar but I did not feel much of it. My office at S.A. felt it though. There seems to be some truth to the upcoming prophecy where we are heading for a mess. I don’t wish to sound so pessimistic or ‘religious’ but contemplation on the fragility of our world does help to build certain inner strength and make one search for the real meaning of …. err…. gadget….
