Our building sway

OMD doggies!! There was an earthquake last night in Indonesia and several buildings in Singapore felt the tremors and shook. Eil was reading the newspaper at 7+pm last night and she thought she was getting giddy. Then later she felt it was not right was her whole body was swirling in a clockwise direction. Mama (Eil's mom) then asked if she felt the room shaking as our hanging decorations were shaking too. Eil then send text messages to 2 friends living in that area to ask if they felt it too. One reply negative (probably coz she's staying in a low floor) But Huskee's maid replied that she felt the tremors too. It lasted a few minutes before it stopped totally. It was pretty scary, Mama was thinking if we should get out of the building and where should we run to. And Eil was ready to carry my cage to run too. Thank dog it stopped shaking after that.



It's shaking... Come on Joey, let's go hide!



During an earthquake it's best to take COVER by getting under a sturdy table or other piece of furniture. So I think I should be safe hiding in my little house here.

This morning, Eil's colleague told her that she felt another tremor in the morning and we checked from news from the internet that it's the aftershock. The public here is advised that there is no cause for alarm. We hope that all our friends are safe and ok. Singapore has so far been safe from earthquake and we hope that it'll continue to be so. Our thoughts are with the poor people in Indonesia~

Hi GG,
I felt the tremors too!! Boy was it scary... and it lasted for quite a while, didn't it?!! I ran for cover under the table..

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Girl Girl,
I didn't notice anything but I'm not really staying on a high floor so maybe that's why. Mom felt nothing but it's probably cos she's fat and you know fat people are more stable and yeah...yadd yadda...can't feel any tremors beneath them.
I feel very sad for the hoomans who have been affected by this earthquake.

Koobuss said...

How awful!! We heard about your earthquake on the news. We are so glad that you and your family, and all our friends in Singapore are okay.

Hope you don't have any more of those!

Hi Girl Girl, You got to stay in the building until the shaking stops... which is scary. Our last earthquake Mum was in an 3rd storey office and the floor felt like a trampoline.

Amber said...

GG, I read the news this morning too. Hope you didn't have a bad scare. It must be a scawie feeling.

Amber-Mae said...

Oh man, this is really scawie...

Two years back when my mommy, her family & their stinking cat Tinkerbell(we were not living with them that time)lived in a high rise building.

One night my mommy was rocking back & forth & she thought she was just sleepy coz it was very late that night but when she saw the hangers in her cupboard rocking back & forth too, she panicked & rushed to her parents room to wake her mom up. She also saw her dad's speaker on a stand rocking back & forth. They all panicked like hell & shoved Tinkerbell in a bag & ran out downstairs very fast.

After a few min, the tremors stopped & an hour later, they all went back upstairs to go to bed. My mommy had school the next day. Phew! Scawie...

Hope you guys are okay. Just be prepared with a bag filled with your hooman's birth certs & documents if anything like that should happen again.

Love licks,

Hi Girl Girl
Earthquakes are quite scary aren't they? We have experienced many tremors here in Tokyo which mum just can't get used to. You were right to get in your little house and hide.

I'm so glad you are all okay - that would have been way scarey.
We don't have earthquakes where I live in Melbourne, but have seen on the Tv how scarey it looks, so must be much worse in person.

I hope there are never any earthquakes where I live. Mom said there was a small one like 10 years ago, but we don't live in an area where they happen a lot.
Stay safe!
