Earthquake Hit Sumatra: I Evacuated Office

My morning at work was pretty much uneventful until about 11:50am today. That was when the building I was in shook. It wasn’t that bad, more like having a minor headache. However, the building management advised us to evacuate the offices. Mine was on the 14th floor.

It turned out to be a minor tremor resulting from an earthquake measuring 6.6 on the Richter scale which hit Padang, Sumatra.

What were my prized possessions that I brought out with me? My notebook computer and my car… of course I brought along two of my colleagues who I bumped in along the way and we had an early lunch 😉

    I love evacuations… time to take time-off, have a cup of coffee without rush and probably catch a nap. Hahaha…

    Heh Mei Ling, as it turned out… there was a follow up tremor. The management decided to let everyone go back early.

    I had a fair bit of rest 🙂

    Hi there Azmeen?
    Where’s your office? You talking about Malaysian can feel the earthquake? Wow!
    We in Sabah, well at least to us here in Luyang Sabah, did not feel anything.

    Hhi Joneh,

    My office is in a 32 storey building in JB. Yes, I can feel the building swing slightly TWICE.
