earth quake experience

Magnitude 5.9 Earth quake hit Sabah

Date : 5th of June 2015 (Friday)
Time : 0717hours

all i heard during the tremors was the sound of wrecking zinc roof. i didn't even think about the earth quake that time. i was at the first floor with my daughter doing early house chores. i was on leave that day since my baby sitter was not able to look after my Thia. i don't wear my glasses that morning so i don't really see any movement. i was just standing still while listening to the wrecking sound and at the same time watched the zinc. in my mind, 'what kind of (big) squirrel wandering on our roof?'. ishh... my daughter was on the floor playing by herself..

after that i went downstairs and i still didn't voice it out; about the tremors. my husband at that time was preparing for Jaden's food and his lunch. he didn't even felt the tremor -___- but at that time, my bro-in-law's stepson was telling 'ada gegaran oh tadi, kamu rasa ka?'. i still don't realized it was an earth quake. until i went upstairs to get my phone and there's watsapp incoming non-stop about the earth quake. scary! but we're so lucky we were at home that time. 

so, the news about the stranded climbers on the peak of Mount Kinabalu quickly spread thru watsapp. i can't imagine how scary the situation up there and how devastated they are waiting for the rescue team to rescue them. and also how tired, hungry, angry you name it. but they can't do anything because they've been telling that rescue team will be there for them. but after no sight of the rescue team the brave mountain guides makes their own decision for the safety of the stranded climbers (punya sejuk gila di atas tu kalau mau kena bermalam lagi di sana).

the sad news about the death of the climbers and the mountain guide makes me so emotional. every time i read about them i cried a bucket. i can't help it ;( and to read about their journey from the peak to Timpohon Gate also makes me cries. i don't know how they do it in the middle of the night descending from Laban Rata. but i knew the malim gunung helped them a lot. Kudos to the malim gunung!!

ok, that's it about my experience during the recent earth quake and i hope i will be more prepared in future (i hope Aki Nabalu will not be mad again).
