Earth Hour 2010 at SM City Marilao

I hardly remember where I'm at exactly a year ago for the celebration of Earth Hour 2009. But it's history; and I am glad that I had taken part of the Earth Hour 2010 at SM City Marilao. Yes, I am one of the lucky few who were invited to the simple, yet dignity-driven, activity.

The meeting place was at David's Tea House where we were served with mouth-watering dishes. And so I took my part on being the photographer of the group.

After a pleasant dinner, we proceed to the venue of the program. The program is entitled "Chants and Dances for the Earth Hour at SM Marilao". It was held in front of the mall. A mini-stage was set-up for the presentation of dances from selected students and teachers from Sophia School of Meycauayan.

But before anything else, I had a photo taken with Al Gore's poster.

A brief introduction about Earth Hour was presented followed by the singing of the Philippine National Anthem and Marilao Hymn. Then, before the clock strikes 8:30PM, a countdown was made and the turning off the lights was symbolically done simultaneously with the lighting of torch. Only 50% of the mall's lights were turned off for security purposes; nonetheless, that 50% already helped a lot in saving our only planet, the Earth.

Here are some of my shots during the program/celebration:

At the end of the program, a freedom wall was provided allowing anybody to post his pledge on "What will you do to help save Mother Earth".

It was an activity worth celebrating and joining. Thanks to SM City Marilao for inviting me.
