Earth Hour 2009 in Review
Good news everybody! I passed my driving test! Which means, I've gain another step to freedom! Whee!
I'm still not sure what car would I possibly get though. Oh well, any car would be great, as long as it's drive-able (and sexy I hope :p).
Anyways, let's get back to Earth Hour.
Unfortunately I've received a total of THREE pictures from ONE person for the Earth Hour. Despite the lack of support, I've noted that some you did actually get involved. But sadly, it's only a minority.
My laptop. Can't live without it in every situation :p
My neigbours' fully lit house during Earth Hour.
In an effort to check out the whole neighbourhood, James Renzo asked me to join him for a small adventure.
All was bright. But I'm very very surprised to see the Istana Nasibah all dark! The royal family actually took part in it! Now that's encouraging!
Only managed to shoot the entrance. The guards were very suspicious of our activity, so we drove off xp
Gary's house was definitely the darkest in town! He switched off EVERYTHING, including the fridge! Three thumbs up!
Feeling very excited, James went off and did an Earth Hour super high jump O.o I can actually imagine him finishing his high jump with a perfect backflip! That leap was the best conclusion for the night's adventure!Oh yea, James was the only one who sent the picture. Check it out:
Around his house area.
Thanks James for the pictures!!
All and all, Earth Hour was a total failure in Brunei. There was no support. The senior citizens didn't understand the whole point. The younger couldn't care less.
Those of you who did get yourselves involved, well done! You have done your part in raising awareness ;) Maybe you all are just too malu to send your pictures, I understand :) What's important is your involvement.
Before I end my entry, I wanna share a story with you all.
When school restarted a few days ago, I overheard this conversation from two of my friends.
Friend #1 : Hey, did you join the Earth Hour?
Friend #2: Nope.
Friend #1: Good choice. Comparing to China, we are nothing. So what we do won't have any significant effect.
Friend #2: Exactly. Our one hour of Earth Hour is like 6 seconds of Earth Hour in China. We won't even achive 1 minute in the next five years of Earth Hours.
Friend #1: True true.
Why am I not surprise to hear this from Bruneians?
