Last year, during Earth Hour, I was at Sematan Palm Beach Resort with my family. The resort off all its lights outside. We were in our room. We off our lights but left the TV on *LOL*
This year, it’s pretty funny.
Talking about Earth Hour. I really don’t know how to put it. I’m not against it but I’m not that supportive towards it also. We might as well do our part to save mother earth daily rather than this particular day? I know it’s some sort of symbolic but still I don’t get it especially towards some people that support this event fully yet they are the one that wasted the most electricity on daily basis. Bah! No difference at all.
Anyway, back to this year’s earth hour. It’s 8.30pm and we were still having our dinner while watching Satellite TV with 5 lights on, 4 in living room(coz we’re not using florescent tubes) and 1 at the staircase. At that time, I went to switch on another TV because I wanted to catch my show. My dad suddenly asked me to off 4 lights in the living room since I got up and was on my way to the light switch.
I was quite blurred at first. Then I realized, it’s Earth Hour already! I asked my dad twice whether he’s serious about switching off the lights? Even my mom too asked him about it. Then he said, “just support a bit lah“. Try to imagine laughing while your mouth is full. Then my mom said, “might as well off all the lights and just use the lights from the TVs!” Hahaha…
Why? Aren’t we supposed to off all the lights? Not only that, might as well off the TVs since there’s light from the TV, the computer too *LOL* Yet, at this time we had two TVs switched on, 3 bulbs off, 1 on because we’re still having dinner, 1 florescent tube at the staircase as you don’t want to fall from the staircase due to darkness, and 2 computers on.
So? Wanna shoot me for that?
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that, why don’t we do power saving on daily basis rather than just today? There is no point doing it once a year. Do it everyday! It’s really not that hard.
Happy Earth Hour!
