I know that we need more than one hour to take good care of our beloved mother earth. The more important part should be to implement green actions and green thinking in our daily life. Still, I love the spirit of this event and I will try to participate again. Last year, we joined for the first time in Earth Hour and my son suggested to play shadows on the wall. You can might see some photos I took with my mobile camera in the collage below. Hopefully this year I can manage to get brighter shots with the Canon EOS 500D. Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

I think it should be a combined event - earth and snuggle hour. What better excuse to curl up with someone you love?

I think Earth Hour is so important..
The place where I stayed, we always
switched off all the lights...
then the families will go out in the dark
with candles... really COOL.

Have a great weekend, Rosidah.
