AFTERSHOCK
by TV Smith
28/03/05


Was having coffee with Jeff Ooi and Daniel Tang, when the latter received a call from his housemate about eerie vibrations in their apartment. Daniel rushed home with no inkling of the ensuing tremours across Malaysia. As I drove home several reports came in via mobile calls and SMS. I also saw residents of several high rise buildings milling around the ground floor.

The residents at Daniel's apartment in Frasers Towers, Jalan Gasing were evacuated. Pummkin reported tremors over at Jalan Syed Putra, Saffron in Cheras, Suanie in PJ, Auyong TC in Old Klang Road (lasting over 1 minute), Regina in Pantai, Jack Chang in Lumut, Perak. Pok Ku said he slept through it.

The shocking part is while people across the country panicked, our automated radio stations and television channels remained oblivious, with no timely updates or news when it matters most. However, NTV7 to its credit has a breaking news style report at 1:30 am, seconds before the uploading of this post.
