RESPECT Fundraiser for Mountain Guides

Hey y'all! Sorry for being MIA again. My hometown (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah) had been hit by an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.0 on the Richter Scale on the 5th of June 2015 which was just a couple of weeks ago.
It was on that very day, while I was waiting for Roy to pick me up for breakfast at 7.15am, I felt the earth moving and heard my windows rattled. I looked outside to find my car and my mum's car shaking. At first, I thought a big truck was passing by the house then it took me 3 seconds to realize it was an earthquake. I was about to take cover under the table when it stopped after 5 seconds. I sat calmly on my couch giving myself some time to digest what was going on. Everyone started texting me if I felt the earthquake and ever since that day, I felt the aftershocks, tremors or whatever you call it until today.
What most of us felt wasn't that serious but little did I know that up in Ranau and Mount Kinabalu, there were people killed and injured by the earthquake.…
