Earth Hour 2011

What is Earth Hour?

Well, Earth Hour is a global event organized by WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature, also known as World Wildlife Fund) and is held on the last Saturday of March annually, asking households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and other electrical applicances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. Earth Hour was conceived by WWF and The Sydney Morning Herald in 2007, when 2.2 million residents of Sydney participated by turning off all non-essential lights. Following Sydney's lead, many other cities around the world adopted the event in 2008.

So what did I do during this day?

TimeOut KL, WWF's Malaysia, and Sunway Pyramid, they had this Earth Hour event during that day, so decided to drop by =)
and yes, this was the beautiful Pyramid before the Earth Hour...

when it hits 8.30pm, all the lights was off!
