Happy belated Earth World Day! >>

.: Moshi-moshi!

i encountered this special day when i was reading our local newspaper on 'that' day. i never know such an action was so powerfully beautiful - it is about a picture showing a part of Sydney, Australia being blackout for an hour. Aa, that superb environmental friendly hour is called Earth Hour. As always, my environmental friendly Wikipedia is there to help me giving some explanation. By right, you guys can click on the link and it will automatically opens in a new window (or in a new tab preferably).

Wiki: 'Earth Hour is an annual international event started by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Australia in 2007, held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their lights and non-essential electrical appliances for one hour in the evening. The event is promoted by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald.'

And guess what? Our owner do participate in the Earth Hour event! (I admit i copied this pictures from Wiki, but i do love Google the most.) This pictures can be seen from the Earth Hour page but unluckily i'm not there to watch either Sydney in black or Google in black. Woohoohoo..

By the way, our Earth Day is fall on April 2nd every year, (it was yesterday!) and hopefully will be continued until the end of time. i wonder if our Malaysian Government will agree to join this help-our-mother nature event someday.

But if, and i say if, another if, and another if, Malaysia will celebrate this Earth Day, i am afraid that the first thing i will heard from our local tv box is about crime. i am quite prejudice about my fellow country mate in Malaysia even i am a true Malaysian. It's just.. if you do live in Malaysia you'll know what i meant. Unless, Malaysian become truly Malaysian, then what i've afraid earlier will never happens. Allah, helps us!

Speaking of Earth Day, (i nearly writing something that is off-the-topic again all over again) it is "one of two different observances, both held annually during spring in the northern hemisphere, and autumn in the southern hemisphere.
These are intended to inspire awareness of and appreciation for the Earth's environment. The United Nations celebrates an Earth Day each year on the March equinox, a tradition which was founded by peace activist John McConnell in 1969.
A second Earth Day, which was founded by U.S. politician Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in in the late 1960s, is celebrated in many countries each year on April 22."

Well, for further reading, i included more links about this Earth Day below: : included with Earth Day 2y2K9 countdown : a blog about earth and earthlings
