Something happened late last night. Sumatra was hit by an 8.5 earth quake. The tremors and aftershock were so hard that people from Penang, Langkawi, even KL could feel it. In everyone’s mind, the incident of the tragic tsunami came back again.
I was shocked to hear the news that people from Larkin felt it as well. Maybe I was too tired yesterday that I slept like the dead. I certainly didn’t feel anything. Not that I want to that is..
Something funny happened this morning. As usual, I do my wake up call to my friend.
I thought it was a joke when I was told “Semalam ade gempa bumi kat Sumatra”..
In my mind I was thinking “Eh, die ni mamai ke ape ni. Mesti die tak cukup tido ni..”
I just answered okey, never even thinking what I heard was true. The realization finally came to me when Mak came into the room a few minutes after that and repeating the exact news I just heard from my friend.
I laughed to myself after that.
But like I said, everyone’s mind came back to the tsunami incident when they heard the news. No one wants such a tragedy to happen again. Nauzubillahiminzalik..
As I heard the news, about ppl’s experiences, most of them mentioned about their pets acting weird. With the cats that kept meowing, dogs barking all nite, the birds in the trees that kept chirping, even the crickets sounded differently. Just imagine such an incident to happen at midnite. There is nothing weirder than that.
An awakening conclusion, the animals knew what was coming.
Alhamdulillah no one was killed here in Malaysia. But the fate of the Muslims in Sumatra is yet to be certain. Let us all pray for their safety.
