do your part

so we have less than 48 hours to go until the much anticipated Earth Hour. everyone is encouraged, or rather urged to turn off the lights for one hour on 28 March 2009 from 830pm to 930pm. i wonder how many people would actually turn off the lights. i think we should turn off most, if not all electrical appliances, save and except for the refrigerator.
however, from what i learn, many events will take place all around KL. for instance, there will be an event in Starhill, one in Mont Kiara and also Capsquare, among others. the question is, what is the point of turning off the lights when most people, youngsters especially will be out and about, driving their vehicles to the events, partying away, with sounds and lights blasting all night long? ok maybe during that one hour period, the lights will be turned off and no music will be played (if i am not mistaken, at one of the events, the musicians will be performing acapella) but later on, i'm sure it will be played all night, which may use more energy than what was saved during the one hour period. this is just my two cents worth but i think it defeats the purpose.
well, i won't be in the country on that day anyway but then again, if i were, maybe, just maybe i will be at one of the places i mentioned above. if i am married, i'm sure i'll just stay at home and make full use of the dark by making love having a nice, romantic candle-lit dinner with my loved one but then i'm not so scrap that thought.
wherever i may be, I'll try to do my part and turn off the lights and other electrical appliances too, if it is possible.
what about you? what are you going to do and where will you be on that date, at that particular time?

here's the thing about calling in radio stations. either you did not manage to get through because the line is busy or when (and if) you do, you are either not the caller that they're looking for OR it is not the cue to call yet. is currently giving away tickets to the Sunburst Music Festival so as i was driving from Court today, i heard the deejay (i wasn't sure who he was) saying about the ticket giveaway, which i thought was the cue to call. so i immediately reached for my phone in my handbag (had to korek2 the bag, which was on the floor of the passenger seat) and frantically tried to call in. to my surprise, there was a ringing tone at the other end. so i thought, hmmmm this is gonna be easy. and then the deejay picked up the phone. he said, "hello who is this?" i said, "helloooo...this is Izyan sepaking" and then he said, "Hi Izyan. apa khabar?" "Baikkkkk." of course lah i felt baik because first, i managed to get through the line and second, they actually picked up the phone so i mati2 thought that i'm the caller that they're looking for. and then he asked me, "so Izyan, what can i do for you?" i answered, "I wanna win the Sunburst tickets" and then he said, "Ohhhh the tickets. tell me, who do you wanna see at the music festival?" to be honest, i don't have any singer/band in particular that i like and i don't remember nuts who will be performing anyway but earlier i heard a caller said he wants to watch N.E.R.D so i simply said "i wanna see N.E.R.D!" padahal i don't even know their songs pun! hahaha. and then the deejay asked me "why do you wanna see them?" so i just said "because they're the bomb!!" lame, i know but what was i suppose to say, right? hahaha. luckily he didn't ask me to name their songs or else i would be so malu. and then he said "tell you what Izyan, i can't exactly give you the tickets right now" damn! i said, "why not??" he said "because it's not the cue to call yet" i said, "ohhh i thought i heard the cue to call?" then he said, "nooo that was a trick actually but we're gonna give the tickets at 12 so stay tuned." uh huh...then i said, "no wonder i can get through the line so easily. oh well, i guess i'll be on standby then."

so there. i almost won the tickets. almost.

weekend project part 17

last weekend's project was a Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk cookie. recipe can be obtained here. i don't have any semisweet chocolates so i used cooking chocolate, cut into chunks. i think they're great because the chocolates are soft when you bite into it. however the cookie is a bit hard. perhaps i should make them smaller.

the ingredients

the cookie dough. the white bits are nuts because i used crunchy peanut butter.

before they go into the oven
