Yes, it might be a publicity stint, it might be a hyped up event but nonetheless, it's still first of its kind in Malaysia. The crowd started to gather to collect the limited edition T-shirt about 5pm. It started to drizzle but fortunately, the clouds cleared up just before 6:00pm. After much waiting and loitering, TV host, Joey G...the handsome one...kick started the event. He did a great job as the host of the night. Fun and energetic.
The Walk of Hope started at 7:30pm after some marching band and cheerleading performances. It was an enjoyable 20 minutes walk around Cap Square. Met some TV hosts like Gary Yap, Belinda Chee and some well known figures in the entertainment industry like Yasmin Ahmad, etc. Buses and cars showed their support by winding down their windows and honking. At 8:30pm, we witnessed KL tower went dark, followed by Twin Towers. With darkness all around, the candle lights made a beautiful scene. It was an experience to remember.
For those who missed it especially CY), make sure you'll be a part of this event next year.
On another note, I am all out for energy conservation and saving mother nature but I must admit also that many organisations took this opportunity to make profit. So the best way to save mother nature still comes from each individual. Use less paper cups in the office (bring your own cup), re-use those plastic stirrer, do not print unless necessary and recycle used paper. If everyone plays a little part, it will make a big difference. http://earthhour.org.my/ Us with Joey G Start and finishing line

I wish I to have the courage like the author. One of my dream destination is South Africa for the safari. The author tells on her journey to Zambia and all the adventures she went through. Loved her detailed observations and wacky way of writing.
And thanks to the special friend that gave me the 'book thong'. You are right - 'A friend is someone who reaches for your hand but touches your heart'. Thank you my friend.

I missed the time when going to work used to be fun. When we were sitting at that corner, talking and laughing loudly. I guess everything changes with time.
Talking about changes, we spent the whole Sunday walking around Mid Valley and I didn't even get myself anything. First, it's because I am on saving mode (really....). And then, I realise, that I am more picky and choosy nowadays. Does this comes with age? And that's not all. The most frustrating thing is, the items (be it clothes or shoes or bags) I have my eyes on, are blaaaardy expensive. Damn it...-_-".

I guess people nowadays like to watch something real (as in all the reality shows popping up), something that shows the daily lives of other people.
The movie depicts the life of the poverty stricken community in Mumbai where the children roams freely without enough to eat let alone have the privilege of education. Many begs but most will steal and cheat their way for some food. I've witnessed something similar in Delhi itself. It was not as bad but I've saw children begging and knocking on cars' windows at the traffic light.
I remember one incident when a little boy kept following us. He offers to polish my colleague's shoe with a small fee. He was very persistant, so my colleague decided to just give him some rupees but he refused. He said that he must earn his money and insist in polishing shoes before receiving the rewards.
I've been brought for a tour in the older part of Delhi. I've been in old streets, tasted roadside stalls and witnessed the lives of a normal mid-income family. It is so much different from what we are having here. We can learn more actually by witnessing all these. We tend to take things for granted. We tend to complain when we face some obstacles. We tend to grumble when things don't go according to the way we wanted it.
Anyway, back to Slumdog, the movie is not bad actually. Go watch it if you haven't...
