We really don’t know how lucky we are sometimes. An earthquake happens in Sumatra and all we ‘experience’ is:
“headaches, and dizziness, vomiting”
And this makes the news on CNA because the next closest thing to a natural disaster that we’re ‘experiencing’ is this:
“SINGAPORE: Up to 20 cars parked between block 145 and 148, Bishan St 11, are believed to have been damaged by ice cubes hurled from an HDB flat.
Residents say the incidents usually occur on Saturdays in the early hours of the morning, resulting in car parks often left empty to avoid car windscreens being shattered.
Residents have had to endure falling ice cubes for the past five years.
Police are still investigating the case.”
