Earth Hour Michaelangelo Blackout @ Sunway Pyramid

This'll be a quick post on Earth Hour in Pyramid, cause I never actually planned to join it.

 

My initial plan to:

- gym -> chao

 

turned into:

- gym-with-Wei Luen -> makan -> Earth Hour -> bowling in summit -> then only chao

 

The incredible power of distraction consumes me. hehe.

 

I took evening shots before I reached pyramid.Earth_Hour_09_01

I wanted to bring out the feeling that even trees were in the 'darkish' Earth Hour mood hence this shot. I never tried silhouette shots before so I think this is a very very very very very x 1000 nice shot ya.

 

After 2 hours of gay gym with Wei Luen, I made it to the old wing lobby, under the Lion head. I didn't ask if it was there, I just felt that it was there so I went there.

True enough, there was a crowd there gathered and waiting for lights to go off!

 

Earth_Hour_09_03

 

I pulled out my camera, switched it on, and like the pro photographers, dengan stylo I put my hand into the bag again....

 

...to find no flash.

 

I wanted to die on the spot there man. On an event where there's no light, I forgot to bring my flash! EPIC fail!

 

So no choice. Use built-in baby flash LOL. I just felt so not used to it cause if I use flash, it's gota be with flashgun. Never baby-flash.

 

I do expect more carelessness like this in the future...especially if going out in a rush. sighs.

 

But baby flash ain't all that bad yo.

Yup, the same shot above was with baby-flash. OKay lah.

Sunway College students were the main part of the crew and planned a cute presentation for us. A group of guys dressed in fluorescent white clothes appeared with neon painted plastic containers improvised as drums.

Couldn't get a wider view cause a lot of aunties were behind me and I couldn't move backwards. Skali bang the wrong body part then I kena man..that time I'll be the one that kena drum kao kao.

Next up was a remake of Kitaro's-what's-that-very-popular-song. It sounded pretty good, and the flutist was impressive.

Subang Assemblywoman Hannah Yeoh was there to grace the ceremony.

I can't think of anything funny to write. Cause there was nothing funny that happened! T_T

 

Earth_Hour_09_08

 

I was impatiently waiting for 12am to see what was gona happen.

And at 12...Lights Out!

Only outside Pyramid lah. Inside Pyramid, all lights and aircond still full blast. Haha. Security issues I suppose. The lights you see here are only from the stage, most lights outside were off already.

Perhaps the most exciting feature of the night was the ambassador of Sunway Pyramid, Xandria Ooi, who emcee-d the event.Earth_Hour_09_05

 

 

You might recognize her as this....

Dunno why she looked a lil different from the magazines. Perhaps due to using my baby-flash.

 

A quick search on her reveals :

 

The 25-year-old television personality is as down-to-earth as your girl-next-door, yet her stunning looks and fabulous sense of style suggests that she is anything but average.

Many would recognise Xandria as a popular face of ntv7 but she is just as well known for her bi-weekly column, Sights & Sounds, in the Star newspaper.

One would assume that Xandria’s education would include journalism or mass communication; instead, the University of Melbourne graduate surprises with a background in finance and management.

 

Interesting.

She's hot, and friendly too!

At first I wanted to do Gila pose but I had a feeling it'll be shiok sendiri coz I would be the only one doing it so...*strong self restrain and stops myself from pulling a donkey face*. Sighs. Mix too much with Patrick and Wei Luen already xD

 

Ok, something quite funny.

 

While many of the shops in Pyramid proudly turned on their lights MAXIMUM, some were quite semangat and turned off half their lights, and some, most of their lights..like Starbucks.

Earth_Hour_09_20

 

You still can see the counter..people..pastries..
Earth_Hour_09_25

 

People like me with laptops will be very tulan haha.

 

But this is the one that wins all other shops hands down.
Earth_Hour_09_21

 

I think Michaelangelo decided that they wanted to go back to stone age and turn off EVERYTHING.

 

I walked even closer and took another shot.
Earth_Hour_09_22

 

 

 

Still nothing! Wah damn black can. They don't even give candles to their customers wei! Actually I wanted to take another shot with flash....but, you never know what kind of erm...objects may appear in the flash lo. I ain't taking my chances lol.

OK, that's all for Earth Day. Hope yours went well and without incident! xD

 

Cheers!
