Earth Hour Singapore

in any part of the world this involves all of us.

Keeping our world clean, fresh and beautiful.
I hope my flowers will stay this fresh always.

Did you participate or read about the 'Earth Hour'?
The results from my surveys showed some didn't even know there was this event.
Some thought, it was only in our homeland and some were too busy to get involved.
the majority were happy to have participated.

'Earth Hour' began in Sydney in 2007.
'Earth Hour 2009' was a global campaign to highlight climate change.
The world had gone dark for an hour with the caring
and responsible people participating to bring awareness.
Only an hour of darkness,
will not save the world.
But such campaign, will raise awareness.

Stated in the newspapers.
Landmarks around the world joined in the event.
'In the Vatican, the dome of St Peter's Basilica, Egypt's Great Pyramids,
the Eiffel Tower in Paris, New York's Empire State Building and many more
around the world had gone dark for an hour from 8.30 pm. to 9.30 pm.

According to the organisers 829 landmarks around the world had gone dark.
Chatham Islands were the first followed by New Zealand, Fiji and the list goes on.

Lights off !

'Earth Hour Campaign' showed most people cared.
Sunday Times reported..
People having good, green fun in the dark at the Esplanade Park.

We were having good fun at home too.
As I walked around my neighbourhood,
I could see some homes
making the best out of the worst or rather darkness.
By having gatherings, using candle lights.
Most participated.
As shown in these pictures.
Except for one or two.

All lights off.
Only the street lights were on.

I am very glad to have participated and did my little bit.
It would be good to have more of such campaigns, to increase awareness.
Though the big organizations,
are the ones who should clean up their act.

Save our Home.
