Not the game. Did anyone feel the earthquake tremors this morning? I don’t think I did, but I am currently next door to a building site so I wouldn’t know. Seems like a lot of damage has been done all over S.E.A though and that’s nothing compared to the steadily rising death toll. The videos of Phuket and particularly Patong Beach have been incredible – the damage. What is weird is all the incoming news from India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and so on… but nothing from Burma / Myanmarr – and surely it must have been hit hard, if everywhere else was. BBC here and CNN here.

    I thought I felt something just before 10.00am as I sat at the PC… and that was before I even knew there had been an earthquake, but it could’ve possibly just been my imagination.

    Heard about it, but didn’t feel it. Though it seems to be a big deal amongst the locals, I’m sure it was a rather ho-hum, hum-drum little tremor that doesn’t really merit a second thought from a Californian like me =)
