  1. Yeah I think I felt it.. But I was not too sure about it.. it was very mild.

    Some time back when I was in Islamabad, I have faced one of the major.. I had no experience and didn’t know what to do..Me and one of my colleagues were staying in a hotel. It was a hard day after work at my customers office ..so we both went to sleep early. all of sudden I felt my bed was shaking and I got up.. then I saw the mirror in front of me is swinging.. Never realized that it was a earthquake.. what came to my mind was a ghost movie :-) To make matters worst my colleague was in faster sleep and she didn’t know anything about it till next day morning.. But after few seconds I realized that its really happening…

    I have never experienced that before so I didn’t know whether to run out of the hotel or to stay.. but after few minutes it stopped… When I had a chat with some of my PK friends the next day.. I couldn’t stop laughing.. can you believe those guys get dressed up in a situation like that before running out of the premises? One guy has even put his socks and shoes.. :-) I think they are so used to it :-)

  2. I don't think it was an earthquake. More likely it was caused by those low-flying jets.
