Day 130: Amazing Earth Day!

I must say I had a fun Earth Day today! We were at Orchard Road Wisma Atria to get myself new set of contact lens and we realized that they are celebrating Earth Day with great pomp and show. They invited all customers to their rooftop terrace for star gazing. They had huge telescopes set up and I saw the moon, saturn and M42 cluster through them! It was so much fun! It was my first experience with an actual telescope and it was so amazing to see all those heavenly bodies up and close! For a minute, I did consider astronomy as a hobby that I must pursue.

Then we realized that the whole of Orchard Road was lined up with performances to entertain the crowd during the Earth Hour. We watched some percussion and dance performances, which I absolutely loved!

All in all, a great evening!

870 more to go.


  1. yay! i wish i had been at orchard :) pretty much everyone there was supposed to turn off their lights, and wisma are one of the biggest supporters :) glad u had fun!

  2. Yes, Wisma was great. But the only peopel inside who switched off lights was Starbucks. They were too eager about it switched it off at 8:15 itself! So now I love them more! :P
