Top ten things to do during Earth Hour


In Sabah, especially during the 90's, thanks to our dearest Lembaga Letrik Sabah, we as Sabahan did the earth hour thing like every month, and we didn't kaypoh, we didn't create a website specially for earth hour, we didn't ask some artists and celebrities to do advertisements on tv about it. And the thing is, we usually did it for more than 1 hour. Then if the next day we have to pass up homework, we can just give this excuse - blackout, teacher.

Anyway, jokes aside (it's quite true anyway), the L-oh-rama in support of the earth hour, will switch off the light for one hour from 8.30 pm to 9.30 pm. But then I know loads of people who can't even survive 5 minutes of blackout and then go on to call the YB, the electricity company then complain in their blog and write in to newspaper.


Well, for one hour, this Saturday 28 Mac 2009, 8.30 pm if you care enough for this earth, then switch off the light for one hour. Then you ask, what can I do without the light ? Well, lucky enough for you, The L-oh-rama have some tips, not those lame get a flashlight and read a book tips (hello, it's not like you can read a book anyway), tips for you to make that one hour a fun-in-the-bun time.

So, here's the top ten things to do during Earth Hour:

10. Eat all those ice-cream in your freezer, it's gonna melt anyway.

9. Dig out your guitar for an acoustic music night, practise without looking at your hands. Oh, singing is optional, even if you sing out of tune, nobody will know it's you.

8. Reject the idea, string yourself in Xmas lights, and walk around as a glowing sculpture.

7. Play Tetris or Snake on you handphone until your thumbs hurt.

6. Write your deepest secret in dark.


5. Don't forget fitness. Practise naked yoga.

4. Build a fortress out of cushions and blankets (DON'T take candles inside!)

3. Gather a few friends and tell ghost stories.

2. Go to bed early. Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.

and the No.1 ...

1. Consider getting some help if the results of No.2 only took one minute.

There you go, the top ten tips for you to do during the Earth Hour, I hope you'll have fun-in-the-bun. (While saving our Earth, don't forget that too.)

Free to Fall

In case you thought that I won 500k GBP and then went on to vacation and abandon my blog, NO. Anyway, I want to talk about some local indie band. Okay, I want you to imagine an all girl band.. What's the first thing that came to your mind ? Male audiences would be inevitably drawn by that strange attraction they have for guitar-slinging girls; while female audiences often supported girl bands for the sense of empowerment they give in breaking into the beer-guzzling, masculine world of rock.


Not Spice Girl you moron.. They play their own instruments, 1 drum, 2 electric guitars, 1 bass, 1 keyboard. They are called Free to Fall.

Free to Fall consists of Jane C - Vocal/keyboard, Adeline (i call her les paul, because of the guitar she's using.. haha) - Lead guitar/backing vocal, Yin Har - Lead guitar 2, Jane S - Bass/backing vocal, and Ker Shin - Drums.


Recently they won the Malaysia Revival Songwriting Competition which their song is awesome. Go check it out at their myspace.


This is the songwriter cum bassist where she play a 5-string bass which I think is like 5 tonne and singing at the same time. Kinda reminds me of Paul McCartney of The Beatles, though he's a lefties.

This photo might be valuable one day

She is the drummer which based on her body size, you wouldn't have guess it. But she plays some good beat though.

Support your local band. Go check them out.

So, the Visa Card company don't even have their own email address ? I mean the multi-national credit card company have to sign up with hotmail for a free email address ? What the fish..

Ok.. this is obviously a scam.. And I feel like making fun of this thing while at the same time, teach all the innocent people out there who thought there is such thing as "free lunch" in this world.. As much as I want to send this "Winning claim" to them and see what are they gonna reply me, but I got many things to get busy with such as assignments, and practicing the songs for prom night. Oh, me with my unimates might perform at proms which ironically is other uni's prom night. Don't worry, we will not play my song.. haha..
