Earth Hour Tonight - It's All about Saving

Tonight, March 27, 2010 at 8:30 pm, we will be celebrating Earth Hour. This movement aims to make us aware of our responsibility in saving the planet though limiting power consumption.
To participate, just switch off your lights and other electric appliances from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm. This represents your vote to save Mother Earth. Saving electricity in turn lessens power plant production through coal fire, which reduces overall smoke emissions that leads to global warming.

Okay, lets participate but...HEY! WAIT A MINUTE! What are WE supposed to do while it's lights out?

Be creative! If you're a kid (or kid at heart) you could always...

1. Play your PSP or laptop? (rather not, it defeats the purpose of saving electricity...)
2. Play cards or boatd games - family bonding moment while playing pusoy and tong-its.
3. Eat - indulge while you bulge! It's like having an indoor picnic by the candle light. My advise - prepare bite-size merienda (like pandesal or cookies) before the event.
4. Sleep Early - and wake up bright and early the next day!
5. Talk it out - share stories, jokes, etc. with the family
6. Taguan pung - hehehe. Loved this game when I was a kid.

You may want to prepare some candles and batteries for tonight's event if you need light for other activities.

I encourage all to participate later - Earth Hour Philippines! Think about it - you can save our planet while saving on your Mercalco bill all at the same time!
