tokyo:: my first quake. survived.

we're ok. 

all three of us survived with a tale to tell. unfortunately (and kinda fortunately), my mum is in japan now as well and is touring hokkaido, but we've heard from them that they're alright. it kinda make you sit up a little and take life a little more seriously. we came home and had our emergency evacuation kit assembled, sitting by the door. just in case. 

but here's what we have: 
1) crackers & muesli bars
2) bottles of water
3) passports & insurance information
4) money
5) towel, wipies & basic sanitary items
6) first aid kit
7) helmet
8) hand extinguisher
8) musashi's crate, blankie, jackets, food, snacks & leash 

missing anything?

we're still feeling tremors through the evening and can hear fire trucks & ambulances in the streets. but we're very fortunately to be in our home, electricity, internet, water and all. because many people are stranded tonight in tokyo as all train lines are shut. the streets on my way home were completely packed with people trying to walk home. its kinda crazy. 

we've cleaned the house up so we have a straight path of exit and while it's all seems very exciting, its quite unnerving and jittery. we're saying a little prayer for the families in sendai and the injured. thank you to everyone that emailed, fb-ed and watsapp us. we're safe and will keep y'all posted once it all passes!

zhing, daniel & musashi
