Yet another thing to tick off my list: Feeling the tremors from an earthquake rock the building.
IP Lect came to a dramatic end today when the tremors from a Sumatran earthquake (magnitude 7.6) shook Block B. I’m so surprised that we felt it so far inland! I mean, come on, NUS BTC is practically in Orchard Road!
At first I thought it was KK being idiotic and shaking my chair. HAHAHA. Jolin finds that immensely entertaining.
The Prof’s reaction was priceless. At first I think she thought we were shitting her to get out of extra time on the lesson – because the tremors started at slightly after 6.15, at which time the lesson was supposed to end! Grins. I quote, “Is this a ploy to get me to end now?!”
We evacuated the SR after TSH popped her head in to inquire as to why we were still continuing with our lesson. LOL. Although I think no one in Singapore would actually take tremors seriously unless they were in a really old building. I doubt a building has ever collapsed because of seismic fallout. The DJs in Caldecott Hill that I was tuning in to were exclaming happily about their microphones swaying, but they didn’t make an effort to evacuate either! Singaporeans!
I hope the people in Sumatra aren’t too badly hit though. Sigh. Sometimes it really does feel like the world is ending!
