8:30PM Local Time, Wherever You Live On Planet Earth. Saturday 28 March 2009

Few days ago I received an email from my colleague whose subject: “Earth Hour: First Time in Indonesia”. I was curious what’s inside and started reading it. And I really liked the content which is about Earth Hour. Earth Hour is a movement of millions people all around the world to turn the lights off on the same local time for an hour. In Indonesia, Jakarta especially, this movement will take place on Saturday, March 28, 2009 at 20.30 – 21.30. Then I googled the words and found its website with also a local link here. From the first time I read the email, I said to myself, “Oh for sure I’m doing this.” Then I watched a video in the website, the official video for this year Earth Hour. You know what, it’s so friggin’ touching…Here it is.


So, here I am, stated myself to participate, to make a difference, to take a stand, to save the earth. Let’s put the event on your calendar, set a reminder, so you too, can save the earth. I believe turning off lights for only one hour will neither give you any bad luck nor cost you any loss. Instead, you may would have given a better future for us, for your children, and for the earth.

Salam Tampan,
