Earth Hour 2009

A lot of people turn of their lights on Saturday night from 8.30 - 9.30 pm. I made a rather brief participation myself. I was on my way to dinner and didn’t realize my headlights were off after I’ve been driving for 5 minutes. Ha..ha..ha..

Earth Hour is suppose to create awareness but seems most are in for the hype. As TNB pointed out, "Demand peaked almost rapidly at 9.30pm, to follow the normal Saturday evening demand pattern.". Well, if people are really serious can they participate a bit longer.

Hmmm…looks like TNB is trying to find excuse in case of having another dismal financial year. You could read TNB comment on Earth Hour here.

Also, I wonder what’s more harmful to the earth, having your lights on for an hour or burning bunch of candles for an hour. Sigh !!! doesn’t it depletes the ozone layer.

Sydney, where the Earth Hour event started in 2007, had an involuntary prolonged Earth Hour (more like hours) the next Monday. Read about the blackout here.

Anyway, for those who are serious about protecting the earth, my hat (should be light) is off to you.

Political Tsunami : One year later

So, one year has passed. Do you see any positive changes ? Honestly, I didn’t but people told me it’s too soon to tell. Hopefully, we will see it coming within the next 3 – 4 years. It doesn’t matter if it’s from BN or PR, as long as we’ll enjoy the benefit. However, I do not mean the usual goodies 2-3 months before the next elections. :)

Ha..ha.. actually, I just need a reason to make this photo shot.

I’ve got an idea to do a one-to-one showdown between an Autobot vs a Decepticon for each of the state but it will take up too much of my time. Probably will update and add them later.

Keta Hijau FC transforms to MUG FC

Huh !!! MUG FC ??? Mug in BM, "Koleh". So, Persatuan Futsal Koleh ke ? Ha..ha.. Actually, MUG FC stands for "Meet Uncle GDee Futsal Club". Sempena nama Kapten kami yang dah tua lagi cengai. Mamat yg pakai baju orange.

It all started as a joke when we tease poor old Uncle GDee which leads to a suggestion that our old Keta Hijau FC change to a newer and hipper name. So we went for a vote, and the result is,
- Meet Uncle Jidee FC (MUJFC), 6 votes, 60.00%
- Kekal Keta Hijau FC., 2 votes, 20.00%
- Meet Ayah Dee FC (MADFC), 2 votes, 20.00%
Slight change in spelling so it will become MUG FC. Senang nak sebut sikit.

Our group plays futsal every Tuesday at Bukit Jambul.

The green car, Skids, will be in the "Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen" movie.

Let's have a meeting under the tree

I'm not a constitutional law expert. So, I won’t comment on who's right or wrong but you can read the news here.

Two things that I find are interesting. First, Earth Hour will be coming on 28 March. Maybe we should have more “under the tree” meetings, so we could switch of air-conds, lights and etc, to save our environment (and electric bills). The meetings have to be valid, though. Second, a friend commented regarding “Laksamana Do Re Mi” but I didn’t get it at first. I finally recalls that there is a scene in the P.Ramlee’s movie where the government of “Pasir Dua Butir” convenes under a tree.

Finally, I got to use my TF Classics/Henkei for a group shot. I was trying to imagine a relaxing outdoor meeting. My assembly consists of
- Prowl (The chairperson.)
- Bumblebee
- Mirage (Sitting on a rock. Too bad, it’s not clear from the shot.)
- Hound
- Sunstreaker ( Enjoying his field day. Ha..ha..)
- Sideswipe
