That is very strange, we didn't feel the 2.1 at 4:23 PM, but we did feel the 5.1 in Myanmar at 10:29 PM same day. maybe people are confusing the two?

Yes at 10.29 PM it felt as if someone had pushed the back of my computer chair , nothing more since. It had no effect on my 2 cats but it takes a lot to shift them.

I was on the roof of a building in Chiang Rai city center at the 10:29pm quake... there were about 20 people at the Sook Hostel rooftop bar - only me and the lady sitting next to me noticed the whole building swaying back and forth for a few seconds... we both burst out laughing after it stopped moving... a very interesting sensation... the point being that it was way more than "vibrations" as mentioned in the title of the topic. :-)
