I Thought It Happened Again..
Stepped into the kitchen, wanted to get my breaky...realized the kettle was not working...oh nevermind...no coffee this morning...
Stepped into the school, there was no light [no, we didnt use torchlight, deviate abit here ah, suddenly remembered that song in NPCC that we used to sing, "There was 1 night, there was no light, so we use torchlight..." ah...sweet memories of sec sch], back to the post, the corridors had mini lights on...oh nevermind...still can see, not that blind...
At that point in time, I thought that it might be just another 1 of those power cuts in the area...which is not that uncommon over here....
Stepping into class, 1 of my classmates told me,
"Hey, you know what happened last night to Ms. X ? She had her roof blown off last night."
[not stating any names, 'cause I'm not that familiar to these people]
At that point in time, the caffeine-deprived me suddenly sober up and laughed damn loudly [ya lah, I know very bad, but visualizing a roof getting blown off a other-wise completely solid house is rather amusing]
Later today I realized what happened...
It seems that a Tornado struck South-West of W.A, alot of damages overnight on the south western shorelines,properties lost, the highway linking the southern suburbs to Perth City is apparently closed, 'cause there is a construction crane there, that is on the verge of toppling over.
Humming 龙卷风 - 周杰伦 now....
Incidentally, Harlem Yu sang the song "海啸". Seems like there's quite a few Chinese songs on disasters.
spyda: still very much a boring place..haha
Pat: sure go ahead and link, tell u tml ah
jordan: yup. clean sweep of the roofs.lolz.
anna: apparantly Perth is. only the shorelines bah..thats where the damage is greater.
