Close one eye 闭上一只眼睛 ...


It was Thursday last week, 
at around 4:30pm +, 
I was lecturing a class in KL, 
I thought I was dizzy as I did not had lunch that day,
I saw the tables in front of me swaying from left to right,
and I stopped talking,
Standing still, I could feel the building swaying, 
it really was the Indonesia Quake.
...
All other classes stopped and everyone left, 
I continued and finish the class at 5:30pm, 
my apologies to my students
for closing one eye to the Quake
...

Eye ...

It seems that the thing was serious, but the picture was excellent.

II have been through a couple of minor quakes in the UK... it's something the mind can't explain at the time.

Don't worry many people have this when they are focussed, the close themselves for everything around them. I am also like that, it could well be that the wall collape and I haven't seen it.

Greetings,

Wong I'm glad to hear that all is well, it has to have been for you to be posting still. I'm sure your students will never forget your class, not what the lecture was about, the experience of the quake! How strong was the quake?

Take care and I hope you have a wonderful week!

I am glad you are safe Wong... that must have been very scary! Your photograph is very cool with the fright on the face of the girl delineating the moment.
