    Oh my god, not Sumatra again! 30km depth denotes it is an underwater quake. Geez ... I am keeping my finger crossed for this one.

    Let us all pray for the well being of those nearby and hope there will not be another Tsunami.

    i was in the kitchen when the hanging cooking utensils started to sway. i turned around and saw the kitchen windows closed. so it couldn't be the wind. for a moment, my imagination ran wild ...
    Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

    Serangoon Road here.... at first it was the continuous few minutes of the window grills, then decided to stand up from my comp investigate when i felt i was about to be thrown off the groud....

    this is really bad... natural disasters... mother nature is calling. May all of us remain in silent prayers of our own faith & religions - praying for those in northern sumatra...





    Amen.

    Weird, didn't experience any tremors, but suddenly felt nauseous, so decided to sit up and surf net for a while then saw this

    Hope that it doesn't trigger another tsunami, 8.2 is pretty big!
