Gosh.. experienced twice in a day aredi.. please stop! getting **dizzy**
Dis was my first experience with tremors or even earthquakes. Didn't experience any of them when i went to Japan many years back *phew* . I was like pressing the table to try to stop it from swaying (siao, u think u superwoman ar), and all prepared to dive under the table to take cover.
But of course, there's no need for that. Some japanese in my company couldnt even feel the swaying.. maybe they have experienced worse ones over there. Anyway, our company didn't evacuate.. maybe they thought everywhere oso high-rise buildings. Go home oso high-rise building.. not much difference oso.
Jes and Winston can knock off early.. so good.. I cannot =__=.
