Felt a earthquake in Bugis area (SINGAPORE) !!! 12 September 2007

I am in office right now opposite beach road and just now felt a rather mild earthquake but it's a long one! The intensity is mild as I am at the lower level but it last approximated 1 minute at short time after 7pm (previously I thought is 7.30pm) hmmm

This is my first time experiencing a earthquake!! So scary...can see the monitor sway slightly and the water move slightly in the water dispenser. It's like the first time when you stand up and feel the legs wobbling and computer LCD panels shaking...you know there are something up!
Probably because I am in a lower level office hence the quake doesn't feel too bad...but I cannot imagine those in the high rise office building doing their over time!! Must be dramatic!

Share your experience leh!!
