Powerful 8.7 magnitude earthquake Indonesia felt in KL, Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR: Another strong earthquake which was
measured at a preliminary magnitude of at least at 8.7 Richter scale
hit Sumatra just after 12 am local time today.

The meteorological department is issuing out precautionary tsunami
alerts and is advising citizens staying in coastal areas to move at
least 1000 km inland. Fishermen (both the marine kind and the ones
fishing for grossly misplaced sympathy) were seen tying down their
boats, and there are some reports of preemptive intentional destruction
of boats in the hopes of getting a government handout.

Among the areas that were reportedly hit by the tremor were Penang,
Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam, Klang, Johor Baru and Muar.
Communication channels were abuzz with inane chatter about the
catastrophe by unaffected individuals wishing to appear worldly and
concerned. Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) has been dispatched to the affected areas in an attempt to quarantine this extremally virulent outbreak the CDC calls “bleeding heart disease”. 😉

The strong tremors were felt as far away as Kuching, Sarawak where
cigarettes were shaken loose from their packs and garbage displaced.

Toilet seats were also reportedly affected by the earthquake, with
many reports coming in regarding toilets backing up. Several people
were also hospitalized for mania resulting from overexcitement over the
latest news of death and destruction.


Internal Security and Public Order director Comm Datuk Othman Talib made an announcement to appeal to the Malaysian public to remain at home and refrain from going to work or school until the destructive potential of the earthquake is established.

Those who are already at work or school are advised to evacuate immediately and return to their homes until the threat has passed.

Passionate Mermaid causes Earthquake

equake saturday nite

I went out with my old buddies during the weekend. William, whom I
got to know during my days in New Zealand, was back for the holidays
and we decided to open a bottle of Chivas (I wanted Hennessy Pure
White, but they didn’t carry it, so we settled for good ol Chivas) at

chivas equake

Earthquake already had the pre-Christmas decorations up and like
most Saturday nights, it was packed. Here’s a video clip of Earthquake
on Saturday night:

I was already on 14 mg of clonazepam and 300 mg of dihydrocodeine so
I was a little not-quite-there by the time we hit our first
destination. Nevertheless, I had the lion’s share of the Chivas which
made me rather un-sober. I also discovered that mixing Chivas with
Yeo’s Jasmine Green Tea tastes wonderful.

Well, needless to say, I was pretty much gone under that three
sedative combo when we adjourned to Mermaid. I only remember having a
couple of beers before some police came in, so we moved again to

passion post sapu

Passion was empty since a sapu operation has already hit it
earlier during the night (or morning, rather). It was pretty much empty
when we reached there at 3 am. Here’s a video clip of Passion, one of
the two big feng tau places in Kuching:

Passion’s DJ still had the bass going strong and some of our group
(which grew larger as we met more people in Mermaid) decided to take
*cough*. The rationale goes like this: “Lightning never strikes twice
at the same place” so since Passion has already been raided, it was
safe by default. It was nearly 5 am when I got home. It’s been a while
since I’ve gone for a big night out. It’s good. 🙂

Earthquake, Kuching

earthquake kuching

This is Earthquake in Kuching, affectionately dubbed E-quake. It’s
marketed as a pub and bistro but it’s more like a club atmosphere. We
went here after Denise.

Feel the earth quake!

There are dancers on poles (hired by management) but the music is
not very conducive for chemicals, it caters mostly to the ethanol
clientele so we didn’t stay long. We dropped by coz one of my friends
knows the owner. It’s a nice place though, if you like this kind of
ambience. The place was packed!

It also seems to have a reputation for having the best looking
chicks (substitute with non-offensive and politically correct term for
young females) in Kuching. Here are the photos, my apologies about the
quality, I wasn’t exactly sober at this point…hell, I wasn’t sober
the whole day…

Saturday is Substance Day! 😉
