Did anyone else feel the earth move...?

I know the light fittings, signs, plants and hanging TV screens at Powerplant also moved...

Update:

The quake was recorded at 5.5 in Manila by the HKG Observatory

I'm relieved someone else felt it, I though I was loosing my marbles for a moment...so often with these tremors, if you are moving around you don't feel them!

Strange... My mom called 2 minutes after saying, "Did you feel it? Did you feel it??" Torn and I were on the 37th fl and didn't feel it at all. Our cats were pretty clueless too. I thought this building would sway violently with every earthquake (as they should if they have floating foundations meant to be good for earthquakes). a bit worrisome..

apparently the building where I work swayed pretty well...my colleagues were up on the 14th floor and all felt it!

The worst building swaying I have ever experienced was in HKG, Typhoon York (No. 10 signal) on the 14th floor of my building...and that went on all day! Apparently on HK Island those living in the really tall apartment blocks had to spend the day in the lobby because the motion sickness was so bad!
