    Yesterday I did felt dizzy for few seconds & I thought it's because of the ciggarettes I puffed about 5 mins before the tremor is felt in my office in Jaya33, PJ. Even my manager & finance director came over to my room & asked whether I felt the shake or not? I said yes, then only I realized that it's earthquake & not because of my Mild Seven Lights. Hahahaha.....

    I think the tremor has caused few members to talk crap. haha

    passo,
    In m'sia, we don't have that many major natural disaster but our govt is worst than the hurricanes that struck the Philippines. Our govt... that's a total disaster, other than Tun M. I ain't favorable of anyone in particular in the govt but Tun M happen to be one guy who has brought our country farther than any dudes who's had a hand to move the country. Correct me if I'm wrong cos I only have a pair of eyes. heh heh

    titanrev,
    what connection? You mean our country had any connection at all? I thought we were all in a dream for 52 years. keke

    We're still at the topic, dude. hehe We're talking about the 7.9r earthquake that caused our internet connection to be shitty. Or at least, our so called "internet connection" which to me never really was an internet connection anyway. haha

    mizu,
    I long time didn't off topic already so do it once in a while. Anyway, the quakes are getting closer and closer to m'sia. I guess it's just a matter of time before it comes so near to us enough for us to even feel single story houses being shaken significantly.

    S95, thanks

    I'm also having the same thought like you. Since Indonesia & MY is separated by only a strait. What if a 8.5 or 9 happen between the ocean.....?? Since our houses and building were not constructed with natural disaster in mind...the result will be terrible.

    Is there any studies going on through our National Geographical Research department? :confused: Hope a crack won't appear on the KL Tower or any tall buildings...scary.

    Titanrev,
    a 7.9 hits off the shores of Padang, Sumatra. I attached a picture here. We're separated by sumatra and the straights of malacca. Yet, we feel the tremor. If a quake of just 7.9 hits the straights of malacca, our building will collapse. petronas towers will be bye-bye and all the high rise building in kl will be bye-bye. PD will be wiped clean and the resorts will be flattened by the waves. Malacca will also be crashed by the monster waves because it's not very far from the straights of malacca. It'll probably be malaysia's worst natural disaster in our pathetic 52 years of crappy independence.

    TR, thats freaky to think about. I was reading the papers yesterday and it stated that the quake came by surprise.. no indications or whatsoeva.. besides the early warnings sumwhere in 1991 and 1995 that a quake might wipe out padang. It also stated that the plates are overlapping causing the quake ..and now the Australian plate is moving east .. so the story is getting more complicated and im sure there will be another one in the next 5 years to come.

    corona...hahaha....

    I think is just a matter of time only when earth quakes will hit MY hard..the earth's plate is on constant movement and we can really feel it. I hope our NGRD better start monitoring it...MY is free from quake but doesn't mean we are totally safe....our country have no drills and no experience in dealing with quakes and if its happen, god knows how much people is going to be dead...plus the tremor has caused our buildings to crack and I hope they better do something about it. Its time for us to get prepared just in case...we will never know what will happen. suddenly a 9 mag hit again...this time is not offshore and mroe closer to us...I really can't imagine...

    not in a our lifetime probably......it will be ages before we will be in a range of an epic centre....

    as of now dont have to worry if an epic centre in the straits of malacca....what im scared of if another quake that cause tsunami that can happen in middle of andaman sea and volcanic Krakatoa exploding again....now those 2 can hurt us in Malaysia in near future
