hahaha, they sure look very, very kaypoh. i can't spot jack....i mean, the one i thought is jack does not have an empty right eye socket.

my mum slept early, before 8pm as she still isn't fully recovered yet. we went out for dinner at 8pm, turned off all the lights except for a night light for blackie. we just got home, so we've actually turned off our lights for 4 hours plus, hehe.

I am quite used to it. My house electricity trips when there's a thunderstorm.

DBKL disappeared from view, as did Maybank. On the other side of the river, the Istana vanished.

Masjid Negara stayed lit, but it was time for Isha prayers. Don't want the faithful bumping into things.

The big red "UMNO" sign atop their building stayed lit up. Again, don't want the faithful getting lost and wandering into the PKR headquarters...

And Sharp/AQUOS left their huge, lit-up sign flashing away. (Reminding me never to buy a Sharp/AQUOS product.)

The street lights remained on, of course, but it was strangely peaceful and felt just a little bit more natural, if anything in the middle of KL could feel natural. I had a couple of candles lit in my place, and by the end of the hour, my eyes had adjusted so that I could see quite well. Sedikit buta saja.

I wonder how much electricity got saved in KL, or in Malaysia, during that one hour... Anyway, Maneki and I loved it.

Nice report Maneki.... I guess KL have never seen as many stars as last nite then...

I switched off the lights, then went to Mid Valley, ie, the GYM... Can't seem to live without air conditioning..

We turned off all the lights except for a few lamps. My little cousins were here. We don't want any accidents during Earth Hour. But then it was quite disappointing because our house itself was pretty dark but all the streetlights and lights from the flat behind our house was so well-lit that it didn't really seem like any difference. :(

I was hoping to see stars clearly.

Hehe.. This line of words keep me laughing...

Nway, my house was dark as there was no one in the house, except my maid who, of course, was sleeping as the boss wasn't there..hehe

And me, I observed earth hour by switching off the light in my mum's ward. Didn't switch off the air cond though or else we can't breath...hehe..

Default Re: VOTE EARTH Turning your lights off for an hour is a great start.

can't see jack's face or the one nearer the candle....i think i would have bumped into them if i were in your home on saturday.

speaking of bumping into cats, today i bumped into blackie and then stepped on his "toes". he always comes to greet me at the door when i come home, but after a few head-butts, he'll usually either lie down for a belly rub or walk off to his bed to continue his nap.

today, for some reason, he got under my foot as i was walking to the alarm panel to disarm the alarm. i tripped and as the alarm started its count-down to shrieking out loud (this will bring our security guards running up to my unit), i panicked and stepped on him as i tried to key in the PIN numbers.

poor blackie. he just sat down with a loud plop on the floor and stared at me with a surprised look.
