Singapore / Moderate shaking (MMI V) : I was sitting in a public place on the phone. Elbow on the table holding phone. Entire body, table, everything flew to the right. Felt like the rug was pulled out from under me. Loudly exclaimed an expletive and person on phone was extremely alarmed wondering what was going on. Weirdest feeling ever.
