    Workinig on laptop on bed, not under H2O tank, so if anything go wrong just slip under bed and pray! Too bad no parachute tho.

    Maybe NTUC etc. should give FREE parachute next time ppl buy house insurance (now only give fire extinguisher)

    Maybe differentiated gifts: high flr ppl get parachute, low flr ppl get scuba gear (for tsunami), mid floor get extinguisher (to help the other 2 lots)

    Parachute... you must live at least 40 storey... if not, before your chute open.. you HIT the ground liao!!!

    Ok... are you on at least 30-40 floor???

    Maybe throw in an inflated rubber boat too for lower floor.... Not all can swim.... how about bikinis too....

    Haha i'm not wearing that even if FOC frm insurance co!

    OK, so here's the best free house insurance gifts IMHO (with addon frm Halfmoon) :
    High Floor 30-40 storey: free parachute, oxygen mask
    Mid Floor 10-29 storey: free fire extinguisher, fire blanket
    Low Floor 1-9 storey: free scuba gears, inflatable rubber boat.

    OK, enough banter: eveyone have a good (earth-quake'less) weekend!

    wow, didn't people actually leave?

    most of the time, when it's just a regular firealarm, no one bothers. they just carry on browsing, me included.

    I think the mini tsunami has affected my fish tank too. All the gouramis who often are greedy eaters now refuse to eat. Must be still recovering from the shock waves.

    Do you know that in event of a earthquake your fish tank is the first one to crack? I think we should follow Japanese example by keeping tropical fishes in plastic buckets in the bathroom if you live from 3 storeys up. One thing pity the fish which has to put up with looking at your naked body everyday.
