Sichuan earthquake 2008

So all of us should know by now about the massive earthquake in Sichuan right? If you don’t know, please go google now!

With the magnitude power of 7.9 Ritcher Scale, the after-effect it brought is really…I don’t know how to put it in words…saddening? scary?…

…No…

…It’s far worst than that…

I was in Huang Shan (my summer holiday trip with the school) when the earthquake happened. I didn’t know anything about it until mum sms-ed me at night telling me about it, and asking whether Beijing feel the effect, and whether my school building is standing still (-_-“).

I was like..OMG. 7.9 RS!! It’s like so big, ok!

The next day, smses were started to come from some friends and relatives asking whether I’m ok.

And I feel super duper triple quadruple lucky!!!!!

You know why??

Every year my school organizes a trip to Jiu Zhai Gou for the students. Jiu Zhai Gou is one beautiful place in SICHUAN province.

But this year, for the very first time, they canceled the Jiu Zhai Gou trip!

At first me and friends were like…”hmm..no Jiu Zhai Gou this year :(“

But now…

“OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!OMG!!! We’re so very lucky we didn’t go to Jiu Zhai Gou!!!!”

At first we heard from one of the teachers that there will be no trip to Jiu Zhai Gou this year because there is a place there (my guess is a mountain area) that make the teachers’ heart skipped a bit when they passed it by bus because the road is so narrow and there is a deep deep cliff on the side….

“我的心已经在这里了!”
(“My heart is here already!”)

The teacher said that while putting her hand under her chin.

Means it’s so scary la.

So they canceled the trip.

But, on the next day after I received the sms from mum I heard one of the teachers that went with us said that the school cancel this year’s trip to Jiu Zhai Gou because there have been some signs of the earthquake or what I’m not sure.

The worst thing is the parents with 1 child only.

It’s around 14:28 China time when the earthquake happened, so there were kids in school. And they were buried inside the school building’s that had been collapsed…

So you can try to imagine how do they feel when they were waiting for the rescuers to found the children….and to found out their children are not breathing anymore…

I read the earthquake news and I feel like crying…

Thank God we are all safe now. Imagine if I went to Jiu Zhai Gou and was on the cable car when the disaster happened…

I wouldn’t be here and blog…

Anyway, regarding the earthquake, my school made a donation box for the students to put money in. The money will be send to Sichuan to help the victims. We also wrote messages on 2 big paperboards.

Hopefully Sichuan will recover soon…

*Deep condolence to the victims*
