How is your Earth Hour ?

How is your Earth Hour? Did you participate in? I'm glad to said that, we did! Before this, we can see and read a lot about Earth Hour 2009 on TV, magazines, news, advertisement and this is also the first year Malaysia join in too, i feel excited and i thought i want to join in by just switch off the light for one hour and kept the homes dark in support of the international effort against global warming.

On the other hand, i do think my in laws or other family member will think i'm nuts by switching off the light for one hour. Yesterday morning while i am preparing lunch for the kids, i told my sil whether she heard about Earth Hour 2009 or not, she said yes, then we two said maybe we should just switch off the light and maybe at that hour we also out for our dinner. Me and hub and the boys were out for dinner around 7.50pm, we went to KL area to have some simple dinner, before we went out i switch off most of the light, except one in the living hall. By the time we finished dinner it's about 8.50pm, we can see most building off their light, KLCC, KL Tower, Berjaya Times Square, all in the dark. Nearby our house, we also cannot see mid valley building and also "The Garden" signnage, the telecom building were keep in the dark.

Back home, i surprise to see my sil had off all the lights!! Even the parent in law house too! Since it's dark and the time is around 9.05pm so i thought i just let the boys run around at the house compound, and wait till 9.30pm. My boys keep ask me why the house so dark, why got no light, i told them, there will be light at 9.30pm so we waited. One of the maid did try to on the light, i told her no no, don't on the light till 9.30pm, they must be wondering why. hahahhahahha

This is my Earth Hour 2009! :)
