:: tremors again ::

the small printed words across ChannelNewsAsia channel says it all : "tremors felt in parts of singapore".

nothing more, nothing else, news are not as quick as they are supposed to be lately.

anyhow, the NEA"s website has this update, thankfully

Tremors have been detected in Singapore at 6:35 p.m. on 10 April 2005, due to an earthquake in Sumatra. Initial estimates put the magnitude of the earthquake to be about 6.8 on the Richter Scale and the location between 600 km to 700 km southwest from Singapore.

the link is here, if you dont' believe me.

again, i have not felt any tremors to where i am right now, wait! i never felt any tremors at all in my whole life.

but as politically correct as i am, let's hope the those people where the real earthquake is happening now (ie: sumatra) is more prepared and safer this time. i can only pray for their safety and watch for news updates.

i will still go out for my drinks later, and try not to worry too much about this tremor, unlike the one before which has just happened few weeks back. i hope i am not being insensitive here...

cheers (hic!)
