Earth Hour, Harry Potter and the HBP, New Moon & a whole lotta stuff

So first, this is gonna be a long post! Brace yourselves!

Earth Hour! I know that some of you may not know what the heck it's all about. So, as someone who is environmentally conscious, I'm here to explain it all to you guys.

Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. It was pioneered by WWF Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007, and achieved worldwide participation in 2008.

Earth Hour will next take place on Saturday, March 28, 2009 at 8:30 pm, local time!
So for all of you out there, off all your electrical appliances for 1 hour! Just that 1 hour will make a whole lotta difference to the world! I did it with my family last year. Even though they were like, 'Aww... Can we not do it?' I made them do it... With candles and all.. So, I'm gonna make them do it again this year!! Hehe! And for the first time ever, 8tv will be supporting this campaign and there won't be any movies and it's totally blank on the tv screen for 8tv if you wanna watch the TV. So, just use some candles and create some romantic atmosphere! =)
Here are some pictures from the previous years:

The Sky Tower in Auckland, New Zealand, switched off its usual floodlighting during the Earth Hour, and re-lit afterwards.
Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House were darkened during Earth Hour 2007.

Many buildings in Sydney also turned off their lights in 2007.

People around the world's doing it! Why not you?

Next! The sequel of Twilight -- New Moon and the Logo!

Awesome, huh? Can't wait for it!!!
Then! Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince! Love is floating around in the air of Hoggy-Wartty Hogwarts and the trailer blew me away! Can't wait for it!
Link to the trailer [especially for ms sotong kurita and dolly] :
Last! I've finally bought tickets for Leehom's Music-man Concert! Well, at least I bought the RM 198 one's rather than the RM 268 one's... =_= I gotta act quick before the good seats are taken!! Can't wait till the 2nd of May! =)

Before I go and I'm sure that all of you can't wait to get off this week 'cuz next week's the semester break!!! Yay! However, I'm gonna be reallly busy!
Busy with the Genting trip with the choir girls, busy doing Pendidikan Moral's project, busy planning time to go watch Jonas Brothers' 3D Movie Experience!! Hehe... First of all, I would like to voice out that I'm not really a HUGE fan of the Jonas Brothers, but I heard that this is a really awesome 3D movie that can't be missed! Plus, I kinda like their personality. So... I'll be going. Haha!
Then, there's gonna be the Hannah Montana The Movie. And once again, not a HUGE fan but since i've watched the series and find that it was, ok and hilarious, I can't wait for the movie to come out. Plus, I loved the song, The Climb by Miley Cyrus.
Until then, signing off!
ps: Happy birthday to my already-11-years-of-friendship-buddy, a.k.a. Head of Rumah C and 阿呆 as my mum likes to call him.. Hehe! Happy 17th birthday, buddy! =)
