Things to do during Earth Hour

Earth Hour 2008 was a malu-fying event for Malaysians. Don't believe me?

This year, with corporate companies and shopping malls participating in this event, let's give Earth an hour of rest.

So, u wanna join the crowd in this community blackout happening this Saturday at 8:30 p.m but at the same time wondering how u'd survive without TV and Internet for an hour?

Before this happens, here's some ideas on how to spend the 60 minutes:

1. Start early. Switch off before the sun sets and soak up the twilight.
2. Go for a walk and see what the neighbours have switched off.
3. Or turn on all the lights in every room and see how long it takes before someone knocks on your door.
4. At which point, you can host an Earth Hour Party: BYO (beeswax!) candle and no plastic cups.
5. One word: Fondue! You get a great meal, no electricity required.
6. Chill your wine outside.
7. Hand-wash your delicates.
8. Harness the combined romance of candlelight and eco-chivalry to pop the question.
9. Dig out your clarinet, ocarina or guitar for an acoustic music night. Practise without looking at your hands.
10. Debate whether one hour can trigger social change.
11. Or just whistle in the dark.
12. Recite memorized poetry.
13. Avoid using anything that requires power. Including batteries.
14. Throw an indoor marshmallow roast (use shish-kebab skewers, mini-marshmallows and a tea light).
15. Go totally 18th-century and play charades by candlelight.
16. Look for stars in the darker night sky, or moon dance.
17. Read a book about the environment.
18. Tell ghost stories. Go down to the basement in a negligee to investigate dark spooky corners.
19. Build a fort out of cushions and blankets (don't take candles inside!).
20. Bust out the Ouija board, host a séance.
21. Dig out your Dungeons and Dragons dice for an atmospheric apocalyptic game.
22. Don't be lame and watch television.
23. Prove to yourself that, yes, you can go 60 minutes without updating your Facebook status. 24. Don't forget fitness. Practise naked yoga.
25. Conserve water. Share a bath.
26. Or go to bed early. *Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge.
27. Consider getting some help if the results of No. 26 only took one minute.
28. Spin a globe to find your next holiday destination.
29. Tuck yourself & your love one in bed for an (extra) hour *cough*
30. Star gazing picnic. Or beach picnic and look at the stars that night.
31. Watch the fireflies fly! (Kampung Kuantan in Kuala Selangor)
32. Reject the idea, string yourself in Xmas lights, and walk around as a glowing sculpture.
