Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
If you want to cry or sigh
Don't forget to just drop by
If you ever stray afar
there is always Angelstar :)

Tiring and exhausting week!

This has been a very tiring week for me; physically and mentally.

Although it was just domestic travel, I travelled twice this week and when I landed in the local airport on Wednesday night after two days of training, I was almost dropping on my feet.

I was so sleepy that I could barely feel my own weight as I traipsed around the airport with my extra heavy bags (somehow bags always end up heavier when you return from the trip despite containing the same amount of stuffs packed before departure)

I have been having muscle aches all over the body and heavy eye lids since yesterday and have been practically dragging myself out of bed and around the office.
It was quite hard to keep awake when I was driving too, I know, an extremely dangerous thing to do.

Things have been so crazy lately that I have again, lost touch with my blogs and it greatly upsets me, furthermore when I have so much to blog about.
I am still in high spirits, just not in high physicality..LOL

I am looking forward to more short holidays and vacations, despite being given the mandate that we are not allowed to take leave at the moment =P (shall blog about it separately)

It's Friday, and at least, there are two short days to look forward to for a break and rest...get away from all the crazy workload and emails and files/sheets waiting to be signed on my table.

Happy Weekend....and are we all looking forward to the long weekend next week? *winks*

Friday and a wedding!

It's finally my favorite Friday here again, and it's gonna be a really hectic and short weekend for me as well.

I am excited as I am heading down to KL (home again) for a very old and close friend's wedding and I am meeting up with all the good old girls whom I have known for more than 10 years (I shall update on the trip when I am back).

It is a wedding which we have anticipated for years and it is finally a reality.
I am going down to give the bride a peace of mind and a big hug and wishing her everlasting happiness with her husband-to-be.

At the same time, I am gonna be celebrating Easter with my family again..and then Monday, need to attend meeting in HQ....

I hope I have the time to log on and blog a bit, but if not, you will be hearing from me next week.

Till then, have a happy weekend....(I am starting to fill my weekends with lovely things to do to weigh down the stress on my mind!)

Earth Hour 2010 - Disappointing response!

On the 27th of March 2010, which was the designated date for the year's Earth Hour, the campaign was expected to spurn better responses compared to the previous years since it started.

I was excited that the yearly campaign is once again on and looked forward to being a part of a historic and meaningful event like this.

Last year, I took photos of the houses around my neighborhood and was quite disappointed in the response of the locals around my place.

This year, I was waiting in anticipation and decided to take it further from my place, to see the response from the island.

However, I was disappointed as I saw the raging and oncoming lights on the road and also the residential areas.

There does not seem to be any level of awareness from the public on the running of this event!
I don't know why, it seems that no one is bothered to even turn off the lights for only one hour to support this worldly cause?

I heard that it was the same for other states as well, now I think this is also probably due to the low publicity/campaign on the Earth Hour which led to such poor response.

However, the clear winner is this, Eastin Hotel Penang (and the PJ one too) as they truly supported the whole cause by turning off most of the unnecessary lights for one hour!
Brave and a round of applause to Eastin Hotel =)

This is a good start, to create awareness among the public and does not mean that you only observe this once a year.
If switching off unnecessary lights in joint effort can save so much in an hour, imagine if we were to individually practise it at all times and every day.

We are doing the Earth, the place where we live in a huge favour which in return benefits ourselves too! =)

So, start by making it a habit to turn off your lights when not in use, and remember to save the Earth by recycling, etc!
