Aaaa Idk what's wrong with blogger that i have
difficulties signing in!
Idk what wrong with blogger nowadays
cause the other day when i was trying to access the blog,
suddenly this page come out saying that this blog is only for invited readers.
what's wrong?
Do you get that too?
Or shud i blame the connection here cause it makes everything goes haywire?

Ok.nuff bout that.
Back to initial plan

My sis called during dinner time telling me about an earthquake which happened around 6pm++ in Sumatra, Indonesia.

Sis who's in Kl felt tremors at her place.
and she said a tsunami warning was issued.

I quickly searched for news related to the incident.
This is what i found

" PETALING JAYA: A powerful earthquake measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale struck off the city of Padang off the coast of southern Sumatra at about 6.17pm on Wednesday, killing at least 21 people, trapping thousands of others and causing tremors as far away as peninsular Malaysia and Singapore. "

" The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre first issued a tsunami alert for Indonesia, Malaysia, India and Thailand, but later cancelled it at about 7.31pm, saying that no significant waves were generated. "

tremors were felt in KL, Putrajaya, Georgetown,Penang (inclusive of Gurney Drive ), Singapore and Padang.

So if you're watching a movie in Gurney Plaza at that moment,
you'll probably felt tremors that lasted bout 25seconds.
(no kidding!)

i can see
Ppl are reacting fast compared last time
because of that unforgettable tragedy which took lives of many back in 2004.
They are more alert now
and monitoring waves and so on..
Guess ppl have these pictures clearly in mind when they think of earthquake + tsunami.

here the link if you wanna read more and on latest updates:
