sunset in Tanah Lot….

we chose Tanah Lot instead of Jimbaran for sunset view on our 3rd day in Bali. and we definitely didnt regret it at all.

mass of people didnt bother me at all. i could only gawped in awe of the majestic creation of the mighty hand of God…

the rock formation was a unique shape with temple on it known as Pura Tanah Lot which they said during high tide it will look like a floating temple in the middle of the sea. well, it depends on where you stand though. ppl from almost around the world were there.

mass of people didnt bother me at all. i could only wish the picturesque view wouldn’t slip pass my memory and be able to flip through the still images for many years to come…

Earth Hour 2009 – What Will You Be Doing?

Cuddling up with your loved ones and admiring the stars in the night sky or organising a treasure hunt in the dark? At 8:30pm on Saturday 28 March, people from all corners of the world will turn off their lights for one hour – Earth Hour – and cast their vote for action on climate change. Anybody can participate and join together with millions of people across the globe celebrating Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is about taking simple steps everyday that collectively reduce carbon emissions – from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.

Here are 10 different ways to spend Earth Hour and reduce your carbon footprint:

1. Attend a local Earth Hour event or organise your own by throwing an Earth Hour street party with your neighbours
2. Gather family & friends for a night picnic in your local park and look at the stars
3. Enjoy a family dinner by candlelight
4. Organise a treasure hunt in the dark
5. Take the dog for a night walk
6. Have a candle-lit bath
7. Sit in the dark and share stories
8. Organise a family night playing board games
9. Share a romantic night in with your loved one
10. Upload your ‘on the night’ photos and videos to flickr and YouTube respectively, and then add them to the Earth Hour flickr group and the global YouTube Group.

To find out more about Earth Hour, visit the official website http://www.earthhour.org, sign up and join millions of people in more than 1,400 cities and towns in 80 countries throughout the world by turning off your lights for one hour at 8:30pm on Saturday 28 March.

=================================================================================
::edit::

p/s: i am so sad and pissed cos wordpress doesnt have the fancy tools for font colour unlike blogger. (or is there any? maybe i am the one who never really explore? teach me) i like colours. my old blog was full of colours. i can go different paragraph with different colours. the reason why i am ranting bout this is cos i actually wanted to highlight the word GREEN above in green colour but now look at it. so plain boring. *sigh*

i’m dead famished!!!

since i still have 0.23 ounce of energy left so let me tell u what some things that i still remember throughout the grueling journey.

1. the uncles and aunties moved faster and swifter than me. talking bout superior stamina! T_T
2. witnessed a white man fell almost 3 meters down the steep terrain right in front of my eyes. omg!! thank God for some quick helping hands from the other trekker. too stunned was i that i can only stood helplessly from the top hoping i wouldnt end up like him too. amzingly he survived with only minor cuts (i guess) and off he strode away as quick as he overtook me.

beep…. beep…. beep….

*about to collapse*

no more energy…..

*fainted*

good morning sunshine!

had a sleepover at The Cuzy’s place last fri cos the parents weren’t around so she needed a chauffer to send her for her driving lesson the next day. yeah, wat is a cousin for right? to become a driver. =.=” (i kid) and lagipun i haven’t sleep at their new place :p but funny thing was that instead of sleeping in the room we slept on the sofa in the living room =.=”

i brought labo along. i planned to take a sunrise shot the next morning. i told her that we will need to wake up very early to catch the sunrise.

so at the wee hour of 5a.m. sat morning, i woke up by the alarm i have set. i tried to wake Cuz Fiona up but like i’ve guessed she decided to continue on with her slumber. she was loyal to her hobby – sleeping! looking at the darkness outside i doubted that i dare to go alone myself =.=” but… thank God there’s one good fella was already up! so i found my companion *grin*

so we drove up the The Grand Old Lady. the road goin up was pitch black. sigh! where were all the street lights? or were there even any? what have the city council do?? T_T when the 2 of us reached the top it was only 5.30a.m. thank God there were lamp poles and it was bright up there. we saw many vehicles parked around the area. i wondered what was the occasion. at first i thought some early morning hash activities. but as we got nearer i saw few church vans. from the methodists. owh… they were having morning prayers on top of the hill facing the city! 🙂 so i remembered one verse.

I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill. Psalm 3:4

me and my little companion continued on waiting for the sun to get up. now i know that the sun in miri rises at 5.47a.m. and here are some of my takes…. it was an awesome scene.

dawn #1

dawn #2 - awesomeness!!

dawn #3- i know this is almost similar to the above but still i like to post it ok.

just for the sake…… :p

Ehehe… yeah… i’m not a good blogger see… i’ve already mentioned that in my 1st entry so… here i am back as i like it :p

Bah… here are some updates:-

CNY – yeap! Obviously! It’s the golden ox year. but whatever! I x believe in animals. Wat more to expect them to give me gold :p and gold during this recession? Wat an irony. (oh well…. out of topic!) anyway, i still wanna wish ‘happy belated niu year’ to all my Chinese frens out there. I like this time of the year for one particular reason though. FRIENDS MEET-UPS!! Hehe… some of them managed to come back this year. so we’ve arranged meet-ups activity as many times as possible. Same old crazy bunch of fishes! Peter came up with a sentence that reminded us how ‘old’ we are already ‘u think we are still 18 meh? That was 10 years ago lor…’ since that the line has been repeated deliberately to us ladies by the guy … hnhh!!! (pls be reminded my bday is still long way to go ok… :p)

Photography – sly, my senior back in uni came to myy for some official meeting. But being a kind senior that he always been he brought along his gf to meet labo my love. We met up for dinner and did some casual photoshoot despite the bad weather. But on 2nd day we had to give up to mother nature as liquids started to drop from the sky. Iskh!! Nevertheless, sly managed to take some good photos of me clowning :p thanks sly for being patient with my very dense head on keeping up with all the technical. Thanks also for keeping your knuckles to yourself when you are so tempted to knock my head for not even familiar with my own camera :p i promise to make do with the manual. saya budak baru belajar…..  *straight face*
