Earth Hour 2009

If you listen to the radio or watch tv, you might have come across these two words: Earth Hour. No? Then perhaps in the newspapers or magazines (not sure which ones) but the word is being spread.

So what do you do to make Earth Hour 2009 a success? Simple. Just switch off the lights and all other electrical appliances this coming Saturday, 28 March 2009 at 8.30pm, if you're staying in Malaysia. But I'm not sure if we're all supposed to sit in the dark or something. If you have a case of achluophobia or fear of darkness, do get some candles ready. All lights should be switched off for an hour.

And don't forget to visit Malaysia's Earth Hour website and sign up. Their target is 5 million sign ups for Malaysia. But Earth Hour hopes to get more than one billion sign ups all around the world?

You can also cast your vote on the buildings and structures that you think should turn their lights off. Hmm...should the lights on the Penang Bridge be switched off? But what about the cars traveling on the road? I'm pretty there'll be some cars out there at 8.30pm on a Saturday night. It wouldn't be a great idea to drive in utter darkness.

Alright, I'd better get back to my studies. Have a great hour of being environmental-friendly on Saturday!

  2. Hubby's interested to do this though we wonder how we're gonna keep the toddler occupied without lights, TV or books?
