penanngguy: We felt the second tremor at about 6.30pm... but the 1st one was terribly shakey.
Anand Chaubey: Felt this for 3 minutes in Seagate - Suntech office, Penang. I thought my colleague was pulling my chair, then I realised everyone was standing and looking outside. It's good no one was hurt anywhere. I got this experience first time on 16 Floor office... and a friend of mine felt this from the 30th floor. Hope I never have this again....
