looks like a score for Olympic figure skating!

Been walking around the property and haven't found any cracks or damage.

As it was St. Georges Day on Tuesday 23rd April, I thought I would drink some Draft SMB's at TongYang Plus @ Seaside, so took Sha-Sha, Anzhelica and Aina along.

1) There is no more 50% Off for first 100.
2) There was a charge for 4 year old Aina (due to her height).  There was NO CHarge the first time!
3) There are sections for seating 6  / 8 people together as well as groups of 4 (+ multiples of these nearby).

We arrived about 11:30

She felt that there was something wrong, and wanted to get out of there,  Her 'spirit' was warning her of an
Earthquake.  ShaSha prayed to her Spirit and I did not feel anything in SM Seaside myself.

On getting home I checked the Internet and there was 6.5Magnitude just before 2pm

Magnitude-4 quake hits Leyte, felt in Ormoc

A magnitude-4 earthquake struck Leyte on Friday and was felt at Intensity III in the province's Ormoc City.

In an advisory, PHIVOLCS said the tremor happened 7 kilometers north-east of Albuera at 10:44 a.m. and was tectonic in origin, with a depth of focus of 2 kilometers.

According to PHIVOLCS, at Intensity III, shaking in the affected area is "weak" and "felt by many people indoors especially in upper floors of buildings."

"Vibration is felt like one passing of a light truck. Dizziness and nausea are experienced by some people. Hanging objects swing moderately. Still water in containers oscillates moderately," it added.

The tremor is the latest of a string of earthquakes to hit the country this week, on the heels of a deadly magnitude-6.1 earthquake that struck Castillejos, Zambales on Monday, and a magnitude-6.5 quake in Eastern Samar.

The Philippines sits on the Pacific "Ring of Fire" where tectonic plates collide and many of the world's earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are recorded regularly.
