Did you turn off your lights? Well I did. In fact, the only thing that was turned on was the refrigerator. My laptop, lights, fans, airconds, TVs, Hi-Fi and even my emergency light at home was put to rest for that one hour in support of our great Mother Earth.
But since I can't live without at least a fan spinning to blow me some air, I decided to take a walk outside, around my neighbourhood to get some fresh cool air and was glad that it was a cooling night...with some gentle breeze blowing softly... Nice :-) And I was happy too that most of my neighbours supported the great event and from the lookout point outside my home, my part of Cheras was quite dark too :-) Good that people are starting to participate in taking care of our environment now. It's never too late ;-) And to keep my full one and a half hours occupied (I personally started 15mins earlier and only turned on the lights at 9.45pm), after the walk around the neighbourhood which took about 25mins, I joint the kids living a few units away with their candles and lanterns hahaha feeling much like Mid Autumn Festival back then :-p
One of the very rare moments where you could just lay down in the middle of the road and not afraid a car would run over you :-p
And to end it, this is one great article to read on what's going on in Australia. It seems that they got some volunteers (I think) to peddle some bikes from 23rd till 28th March this year to generate enough energy (much like a dynamo) to power a live concert! Not bad for an all-man-powered concert. Head on to here for the details.
For the good of Mother Earth and to mankind :-)
