Yup, I was in my office and could feel the swaying (NO, I wasn't jumping around!).

Shocking! TWO big earthquakes within 24 hrs around the world. Heart goes out to all affected people.

I didn't felt it... but the hotel I'm staying in KL now forbid us to enter the building. Was told that the building shook just seconds when I was about to go in. News reported Indonesia Padang earthquake R.Scale 7.6. Let's pray for the victims....

felt it... my bed was swaying and my door had the knocking sound.
So obvious that I knew it was earthquake..

The last few times I was unsure when I just felt giddy.
So reckon this must b a big one..

sometimes, certain rigourous actions and exercises done on the bed can also cause the bed frame to knock on the wall and cause a knocking sound (with creaking too).

sometimes, after the release (for the umpteen time) can also feel giddy after too many shots.
