  1. Make your own lamp from recycled materials. Look for a used bottle and fill it up with equal amounts of rock salt and cooking oil (preferably used, to keep in line with the recyclable materials). Roll a piece of cotton into a small ball, dip the other end of the cotton to the mixture, and light the tip. Voila! If you’d like to try making a funky homemade lava lamp, learn how at http://www.education.com/activity/article/Make_Homemade_Lava_Lamp/.
  2. You’re never too old to play games. Revisit your childhood by playing patintero and/or taguan (hide-and-seek) under the sky. While you’re at it, why don’t you invent silly games? The sillier, the better. A crazy and fun suggestion is to pick a theme and draw in the dark. Use crayons, cray-pas, watercolor… Pick your medium. When the clock strikes 9:30PM, turn on the lights and see whose drawing is the “best.”
  3. Take advantage of the dark and spook each other out. Exchange the worst (meaning the best) ghost stories you know. After all, the scariest creatures come out at night…
  4. How long has it been since you used the landline instead of texting or calling using your cellphone? Dial a friend’s home number, go old school and “make telebabad.”
  5. There’s such a thing as “light pollution” which comes from the excessive use of artificial light. This makes the stars invisible. According to the calendar, the full moon is a couple of days away from Earth Hour, meaning there will be plenty of moonlight on March 27. Roll out that banig, lay down beneath the sky, and gaze at the stars. There is always light in the midst of darkness.

  • I admire our fellow Filipinos for this wonderful project. I must say at first, I thought there won’t be not much of volunteers (esp in our village) but when the hour strikes at 8:30 (and we turned our lights off) everything went pitch black.. Then I felt that people were really concerned and are aware of the global, environment issues… Just to share.. 🙂

    We voted for earth hour last year by lighting a single rechargeable lamp light and gathered on the table outside our house and chatted for one hour before putting on the lights again. On March 27, 2010 we’ll be doing the same thing and maybe ask older people to tell stories on how their ancestors lived without electricity during their time.
