Flicking the Switch...

To 'Off', that is.

Earth Hour does not need any introduction. At 8:30pm on March 28, 2009, cities across the world will turn off their lights for just one hour--Earth Hour--to show that it is possible to take action on global warming. Switching off is a simple action that can make a difference and it sends a powerful message that the people of the world care about the future of the planet.

Iconic Malaysian landmarks such as KLCC Twin Towers, Penang Bridge, and KL Tower have confirmed its participation by turning off their non-essential lights for one hour. As you may know, Fly FM is in support of Earth Hour and had even gone "green" during the previous Campur Chart Goes Live At Laundry.

Some questions ran through my mind. Apart from "Will muggers come out to play for an hour?", How much awareness can be raised from such an energy efficiency campaign? Will we continue to pledge our support to fight global warming daily?

What are the small steps that you take to conserve energy? Feel free to drop me your comments.

All Media Prima Radio stations (Fly FM, Hot Fm, One Fm) will shut down for an hour at 8:30pm, March 28 pm. Be sure to check my Vblog on March 29 to see how it all come down right here at the Fly FM studio.

P/S: I'm doing the Earth Hour countdown on Fly FM. In a way, that is my contribution to this global campaign.

I'm posting on behalf of my friend, Jasmine Ooi--
Erm… let’s see. At office although it’s free, I try to do my tiny little bit also. Like, shut down computer during the weekend, at least, instead of leaving it on cos I know Sat and Sun I won’t be coming back to use it. Gym washroom, the lights are usually on even though no one is there. I’ll shut them off before I leave to help save energy!!! *halo above head*

At home… turn off the switches if not in use… or sometimes can just open the windows or something, instead of turning on a light in the room. said...

5 more days to this!

Can't wait to see what it is like! :)
