A few years ago, I bought a house in Singapore for $2,500.
It was on a steep hill in an isolated neighborhood.
Its three bedrooms and three bathrooms were large, but it was a modestly furnished house.
I was surprised by the amount of water in the house, so I had my son and his brother run a hose around the house to collect the water and put it in a plastic bucket for safekeeping.
The next day, I called my daughter and told her I was going to get rid of the house and I would not be staying there for two years.
She was devastated.
I told her that I was staying because I thought the house would not survive the earthquake and I needed a place to stay.
I did not have to worry about water contamination.
I had just put my money on the house.
After the earthquake, I was in the middle of a divorce.
I moved to Hong Kong in July 2016.
I was told to move to a safer house because my husband is a firefighter and my daughter lives in a nearby building.
But when I got to the house I was shocked to find out that it was in a very unsafe place.
I was very worried about my children.
My eldest daughter, who was nine at the time, had never been to a safe house before.
She had never heard of any earthquake-related accidents.
She asked me what happened to the water that we had collected and said: “We got hit by a car.
We are so worried about it.”
My youngest daughter, she said, “It was so dark.
There were no windows.”
My wife told me, “If something happens, we will get married again.”
I told her: “I don’t know, it is just so dark.”
We were worried about the house because we were worried that we would not know how to do the water.
My wife and I went to the city’s fire department to ask for a fire extinguisher.
But we were told that there was no fire extinguishers in the building and they would not let us have one.
When I got back to the fire department, I asked to speak to the manager and he was reluctant.
He said: ‘No problem, just wait for the building to be evacuated.’
I got in my car and drove to the building where the water had been collected.
When I got there, I found that it had been evacuated by the city.
The fire department said they were going to give us water, but they would only give us a bucket of water and a bucket to drink.
One of my friends who lives in the neighborhood had seen the fire truck that had been sent to evacuate the building.
He told me that he was worried about what happened there.
He said, ‘I think they should have sent more trucks to evacuate, but I just don’t think the building is going to survive an earthquake.
There is nothing that we can do for the house.’
The next morning, I went home and called my sister-in-law.
I said: `I don´t want to stay there.
I will go to my mother-in of nine years to take care of the kids.
She said: [I] can do anything for you.’
My sister- in-law had to be the one to go to the hospital and I told my mother in-laws and brother-in, who live in the same building, to move me to another safe house.
My mother- in of nine was in shock.
She started crying and told me: `We can´t even go out.
I have no choice but to move you to another house.’
My mother in of ten had no choice.
She asked me: ‘Why?
What will happen to the kids?
The children won´t come out of the safe house anymore.’
When my mother was home, my sister told me to tell my children: ‘Please stay at your house.
Please don´ t go outside.
We can´te have a little bit of fun.’
My mother- In of ten said: My children, my kids, my sons and my daughters, you can stay here for two months.
I don´te care.
At first, my mother said that she would be happy to have them stay in the safe place.
But the next day she said: I am worried.
They might be afraid of something.
I am afraid that my son will be hurt if he gets out of this safe house.’
My sister- In Of ten said to me: If you move, the kids will go outside and there will be accidents.
As I went back to my home, I told them that if I had to leave, I would leave because I do not want them to come out.
They said: [If] the house is not safe, you will never come back.
If they come out, you know where they will go. I
