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.)
