earthquake

image002_4.jpgimage010_1.jpg

Just experienced an earthquake-magnitude of 5.

10:13 hr.

震度–5弱 .

Too sudden to run. Too inforeseen to react.

In that 60 seconds or what felt like forever, my body froze, but my mind was rapidly thinking of the life I would be leaving behind. And all my dearest ones.

All you could do was to hold onto something concrete..

and pray.

That occurred more than 30mins ago. But you never forget that surreal feeling of the earth shaking underneath your feet. This is not my first stumble with an earthquake, but this is clearly the strongest tremor so far for me.

All the questions that needed answers.

Will it stop? Is this the end?

God do you exist?

I’m alive.

And i’m gonna live it.

*UPdate= 10 deaths and 1070 injured so far in Niigata and Nagano

**LATEST== 1537hr-another series of aftershocks, magnitude of 6. 震度–6弱 .

So scary.. now do you appreciate living in Singapore ?

注: 谢谢大家的慰问。 很感激。。请阅读7月20日的entry.

    Hi Sharon

    Yesterday night i read the news…I think those japnese living near to the seaside or hill will be seriously injury if they don’t have the time to run..but i dun think they have the time to react what happening and run for their life…as most of them are elderly living at the age of 70 – 90+ yrs old.

    If i am not wrong taiwan, ever happen such casualties through the whole year( earthquake, fire, the building collapsed etc) causing alot of people injuries and death.

    Glad to hear you are alright…

    こんにちは, sharon。

    私も日本にいます。昨日の朝、寮で勉強していた時、突然部屋が揺れました。びっくりしすぎたので、反応がなかった。その時、家族を思い出した。シンガポール、家族と友達が懐かしい。

    質問に聞きたいんですから、できれば、プライベートメールを送ってくれませんか。

    イリンより。

  18. Hi Sharon!

    Do take care of yourself! It has been a long time since you featured in cheng ren za zhi.

    All the best in your studies!

    Hi Sharon

    Anyway earthquarke is something we can’t predict it…

    Now you can do is concentrate on your studies / examination. Besides that, must remember to run for your life if such thing like earthquarke happen.

    Take care…Also must remember to call your mum to inform you are alright…so that she can sleep well that night.

  32. Hi Sharon,

    I’m Danny Bunny’s friend and read from his blog about your first earthquake experience.

    I am happy to read that you are fine and one can always look back at this as a reality check of sorts. It can be a blessing in disguise to experience such moments because it does remind us to treasure what we have in life … and the most important things – our relationships.

    Through your experience, I am reminded of this and more. Take Care! 頑張ってね!

  33. melvin

    Thank goodness you are fine. Take good care. 🙂

  40. hey sharon,
    全相宇 acted in Stairway to Heaven and recently Sad Love Story, which is what I’ve been watching, and bawling my eyes out! Korean dramas, as melodramatic as they might be are serious tear-jerkers man! Watch it! I’m totally in love with him after this show. haha..:)

  41. pastry

    hey sharon, a fan of yours. please take care, and we really miss you. glad youre okay, and may the lord be with you.

  42. In the hours of distress and miser,the eyes of every mortal man turn to friendship;in the hour of gladness and conviviality ,what is our want?It is friendship.When the heart overflows with gratitude,or with any other sweet and sarced sentiment,what is the world to which it would give utterance?a friend.
