Earth Our Malaysia was last night, on 27th March 2010, Saturday 8:30pm.
Green Heights Mall is also one of the malls that is taking part in Earth Hour in Kuching, and there was an Earth Hour Concert, as well as food bazaar and some promotional booths. So i went over to have a look, and to my surprise! It was very packed!!
Get ready to SHUT IT DOWN!!!
Green Heights Mall is the only mall i know in Kuching, that is putting in lots of efforts in trying to make our planet-EARTH a better place. They have been promoting “green” campaign on its premises which includes the usage of eco-friendly shopping bags, mini recycling stations inside and outside the mall. Other than that, he mall has “green” features such as its prominent atrium glass roof that allows the optimal use of natural lighting and a landscaping project for its rooftop.
Even their events are surrounded by the word "ECO-", one of the examples was the Eco-Lantern Making Competition for the Mid-Autumn Festival last year.
Eco-Lantern Competition & the Parade with the lanterns, concert and moon cake eating at Green Heights Mall. The lanterns are all made from recycled items like used bottle, paper box, empty cans, or anything that has been used, isn't it very eco-friendly?
Not only that, even their Christmas tree was very Eco-friendly as well.
and this time.... they called it, "SHUT IT DOWN!!"
They even had a series of programmes for the whole week, which includes recycling campaign, Tree planting, and Eco Awareness talk. They are the genuine earth Hour supporter!!
It was packed, cars parked by the road side all along the road surrounding green Heights Mall. Many people were holding a candle in their hand. There were many booths there, and all of them had candles lighted on the tables. It was really hot!!!
Such a nice & creative art with the mini candles..

They are selling many different types of finger food here, but you just have to take a closer look as the visibility was very low.
Magazines are sold at only RM10 per pack, some of the very informative magazines (3 in a pack) are very cheap at this price!!
Look at how wet is my baby's hair and you will know how hot it was!!
One of the shot of the for the stage, but not sure which band was that since there were a few last night: KL's hottest Indie band KYOTO PROTOCOL and the best of Kuching's underground music scene LACRIMOSA, ARCH ANGEL, KAREN & ERROL and VENUS & MARS.
Anyway, music was not bad.. It's sort of like a mini style of Rainforest World Music festival, but this is a suburban concert.
Other places who also supported Earth Hour are:
Tune Hotels Waterfront Kuching.com
and....Boulevard Shopping Mall
