as the earth trembles 20110311


i was sitting patiently in the office and then a message came from our colleagues in japan, earthquake. oh well, japan is known for that. while i was there for 2 years, i must have experienced the most earthquake in my entire life.

but then new messages came, they went out of the buildings. it was that strong! we then started to call our other colleagues in tokyo, worried of their safety. no contact.

communication network is down but internet is fine, said our boss in japan. this was at around 2pm philippine time.

talked with other friends in japan making sure they are safe and getting news about the others, it was heart pounding. we finally received a call from 2 colleagues, they were both fine but the trauma is clear in their voices. stationed at the 6th floor, they immediately grabbed the helmets and ran down the stairwell. wall cracks becoming visible and ceiling paints raining down, it was like a movie. when they came back, all their things were tossed around, giant monitors down the floor. they recalled via phone giving us updates before they go home and end the working day abruptly.



with 6 people safe out of the 7, we still lack one and she was alone in a quite unfamiliar place. after long hours of waiting, texting, emailing of just trying to reach her, she came back at their apartment exhausted. and for sure i can sleep better.

the earthquakes did not stop there. lots of tremors were felt until early dawn. my heart was having big quakes of its own while hearing news. but at least it's a little relieved, all of them are safe. even all my online friends are safe.

i never doubted the buildings in japan. for sure they are built to last quakes knowing that japan experiences lots of quakes yearly. i know that buildings will only sway as experienced. tsunami is a different story though. if this happened in a not-ready-like-the-philippines country, i just couldn't imagine the disaster.

with the recent quakes from new zealand to japan, one could easily ask who's next? but i just hope this ends now. this is another proof that we do not own and cannot control nature. we are mere humans and inhabitants of the earth who cannot do anything but hope... and wish... and pray...

here is a live update of the earthquakes happening in japan from the government itself. --> HERE

below are excerpts from conversation with colleagues and friends. i am nothing but happy we still have talked. and somehow, i feel blessed i wasn't sent back to japan.
