Sumatra Earthquake

I was in Kuching Sarawak when it hit so I didn't even know about it till it came out on BBC and CNN news. I've heard that you can feel the tremors in Kuala Lumpur when you're in a high rise building but when I got back yesterday everything in my apartment looks intact. In Penang and the northern states in Malaysia with coastlines facing Andaman Sea the story is not the same.
