1. Any Richter scale equivalent to a Mercalli intensity is at best approximate, since the two scales measure different things. The number given is an estimate of the Mercalli intensity experienced at or near the epicenter of the earthquake.
2. Intensity I is assigned to some quakes that actually were detected by people, if the people were very far from the epicenter and could feel the quake only because of exceptionally favorable circumstances. In 1964 a few people in Seattle, for example, felt the Alaska earthquake because they were up in the Space Needle, and some people in Houston skyscrapers felt the 1985 Mexican earthquake.Source by: www.sizes.com

Looking for Make-up, Hair-styling & dress?
Make-up & hairstyling:
I personally engaged with make-up artist from bridal shop.

Go to Milennia Square (Lobak), there are many newly opened boutiques in that area.
I recommend a boutique called 'Elizabeth boutique'' situated just opposite the Tarot cafe. They have the most dinner dress choices and with reasonable prices. However, I couldn't find a suitable dress for myself.
So, I went to Sg.Wang & Times square in KL to hunt for my perfect white dress. I can tell that you do not need to go Times Square as the dress quality are so bad and cheap. Sg.Wang has more choices and better quality and I finally found mine. It is a bit pricey but worth it! I bought a white long dress at 'Fairy Beauty' @ Rm290. It is really nice, simple & elegant + good quality. The most important thing is it makes me look slimmer! ^_^

I hope it is enough for Seremban babes. Enjoy your Rom Day & Congratulations!

Hey friends, just wanna share some photos of my experience of climbing Mount Kinabalu. Enjoy!
Nice environment & it is quite cold at night - about 16 degree.
The steamboat at the resort was the perfect one!
Thanks to the porter service, if not I think couldn't make it.
They charge a very reasonable price RM9/kg & bamboo Stick Rm5 each
The broom stick helps me a lot. I can save much energy with it & one is enough.
Remember not to lost it ya!
Beautiful scenery @ after climbing for 5KM journey... worth it!
Started to feel the nice cooling weather.
Still looking fine... hehe
Look at the food, this is what we given + 1 small bottle mineral water.
The juicy apple refreshes me.
After walking on these rocky roads, I feel like just had reflexology for 6 hours...I'm serious
Look at that! I am really proud of them!
Finally, I can take a rest! This is the view looking from Laban Rata, 3.5km to go to the peak!
Just in time! I managed to reach to the peak for sunrise! Yahoo!!!!
The beautiful scenery forever on my mind.
