28 MAR 2009: Been hearing lots about this event (Walk of Hope) via radio and other media channels and decided to join with couple of friends. It was a charity event where the fund collected would be donated to WWF-Malaysia.
We reached CapSquare at 6pm to collect our T-shirt but the T-shirt was out-of-stock unfortunately. Kind of disappointed but since it was a charity event, I couldn’t say anything. Walk around the CapSquare where I would say has nothing to shout about. The place was packed mostly with teenagers (mostly Malay) and there were some events /performances before the walk started at around 7:30pm.
It was just a short distance of walk (perhaps around 1km) where we took around 15 minutes to complete it. Stayed a while after the walk till 8:30pm for the countdown. Teenagers were happily jumped and shouted, which I hope they do really understand the real purpose of the Earth Hour instead of just another celebration for them.
The Walk of Hope is a great effort done to support Earth Hour, but with a lot of space for improvements. Hope it will be better organized next year (at least with enough T-shirt for everyone!!!).
