My Blog Is Carbon Neutral

"According to a study by Alexander Wissner-Gross, PhD, physicist at Harvard University and environmental activist, an average website causes about 0.02g (0,0008oz.) of carbon dioxide for each visit. Assuming an average blog gets 15,000 visits a month, it has yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 3,6kg (8lb.). This can mainly be tracked back to the immense energy usage from (mainframe) computers, servers, and their cooling systems."

Wow! Did you all know about this? Mommy says it's bad and when I grow up, the world as I see it now probably won't be the same anymore if this goes on plus another thousands little environmentally un-friendly activities we do everyday!


Tok Abah teaching me about tress! I love GREEN!

So, I'm taking this initiative to make my blog a carbon-neutral one. It's cool and it's free!
Here's an interesting story:

One day, Mommy and Dadda received an e-mail from Germany.
They stumbled upon my blog and told us about their project. Cool eh?
I'd never thought that people in Germany would be interested in my blog! Hahaha!


Anyway, a young team in Germany is apparently working for an initiative called "Make it green!". They are doing their part in reducing the carbon footprint by raising awareness of the severe environmental damage caused by carbon emissions. One of their activities is to raise awareness of the carbon emissions resulting from the use of the internet - specifically of blogs.

So, after going to their website and read about the whole thing, we feel that we could take part in this beneficial activity.

You could too! Just go to :
http://www.kaufda.de/umwelt/carbon-neutral/how-you-can-join

carbon neutral coupons and shopping with kaufDA.de carbon neutral offers and shopping with kaufDA.de co2 neutral shopping and coupons with kaufDA.de

So, how do they actually neutralise my blog's carbon footprint? Well, they will plant trees in cooperation with the Arbor Day Foundation in Plumas National Forest in Northern California for their project to neutralise the carbon footprint of blogs. Thousands of wildfires burned down many national forests over the past ten years and 88.000 acres of Plumas' were destroyed by two fires in 2007. (I'm so glad that we don't have major forest wildfires in Malaysia... imagine all those trees that got destroyed!). To help replanting they need the support of bloggers from all over the world!

For every participating blog, they plant a tree. One blog - one tree.
So this post will give them 1 more tree!

I hope anyone reading this will do the same.
Maybe someday, the same initiative can be done in other parts of the world too!


Let's conserve our environment so I can play with nature even more!

So, everyone, let's "Make It Green!".

Looking Good Traditionally - 1Malaysia Fashion

In Malaysia there are 3 main races, they are Malay, Chinese and Indian. Each race has its own traditional costume. As for the malays, we have Baju Melayu for the boys and Baju Kurung for the girls like myself. You can see me in one in my previous post about Eid.

My first Baju Kurung was a cotton one with tiny flowers. I had it on for my first Eid celebration when I was just around 9 months, I think.


My first baju kurung!

My second one was a plain silver one with tiny details at the collar, made specially for Mak Lang Nur's wedding.


Tok Abah and Tok Mama bought a plain blue coloured one for me when we had tahlil for Atuk Kassim who passed away last year and my latest Baju Kurung was green, quite glamour-ish, with sequins and flowered details at the collar Mommy bought for Eid last year.


My 2nd Eid baju kurung with Mommy!

The traditional costume for Chinese girls are called Cheongsam and I have one too! It's pink and has flowers all over and I got it for my 1st birthday and just recently wore it to a wedding. Of course, I looked adorable in it!



Now, the traditional costume for Indian girls is called a Saree and I have yet to own one (hint, hint, Mommy...). It looks quite complicated to wear, though and I'm not sure if Mommy knows how to wear it, let alone wear it on me! So, I might have to wait until I'm a bit older and maybe get Mommy's friend, Aunty Uma to teach me how to wear a Saree. Owh, and she sells Saree online too, at www.indifashion.my.

Anyway, I think it's nice to be able to wear traditional costumes from different races and countries.
That reminds me, Dadda has worn a kilt before, haven't you, Dadda?

Surprise!

Two weeks ago, I followed Tok Abah and Tok Mama to their new house. We went there just to check on things and clean up a little for the people who were coming to install the curtains. On the way there, we stopped by at Carrefour, Subang Jaya to buy some food. Little did I know that Tok Abah was about to buy me something new and interesting!

Tadda...!! I present to you... my new Bike!



It has two seats so whenever my cousins or my young aunts and uncles come, they can ride the bike while I sit at the back like a princess. I did a little pose on it. Don't I look adorable riding it?

February 2010 happenings... continued...

Hi all!

Guess what? Yes, I did get to see some Lion Dance action on Chinese New Year weekend! Woohoo!
We saw it by chance when we stopped by at a mall in Subang (Subang Parade) to buy a birthday present for a neighbour...

So, I told you in my previous entry that everyone was on a long holiday weekend because of the Chinese New Year, right? Well, yea, they had Saturday, the 13th till Tuesday, the 16th off from work. So, I was hoping for a 'happening' weekend and I got it!

On Sunday the 14th, we attended a wedding with Tok Abah, Tok Mama, Pak Su, Mama and Ayah Ngah.


Right after that we had to attend a birthday celebration of a friend of mine, Akilah (well, she actually lives next door to Tok Abah's). On the way there, we stopped by at Subang Parade to get her presents. That was where all the action began. We happened to be right on time for the Lion Dance performance! It was soooo exciting! There were 4 lions; 2 red and yellow ones and 2 white and silver ones. They not only did the usual 'walking-on-posts' stunt but they also walked on 2 wires. It was sooo cool!

<a href="http://www.linkedtube.com/pBVm2l-7zpc7597f5a28ff5e224845e295e07b6ff82.htm">LinkedTube</a>

After buying the presents we went straight to Akilah's house. There, I ate A LOT! I already ate some rice previously at the wedding but somehow I managed to find more appetite to eat some more food at the party, hehehe... Anyway, Akilah looked sweet in her pretty dress and we played ball after eating.



The next day, Monday, we went all the way to Seremban to visit Atuk Ngah Man (although he prefers to be called 'Uncle Man' just like how Mommy and Dadda calls him...) who was down with Dengue and was hospitalised a week prior to our visit. However, he was discharged a day before the CNY so we went to his house instead.
From Seremban, we headed straight to Nek Wan's in Rembau. Of course, needless to say that everybody there were so happy to see me...

The day after that, we had a light breakfast and skipped lunch to have hi-tea with Uncle Nuar as it was his birthday the day before. First we ate at Dome, Subang Parade and after that we walked over to Swensen's to have dessert.

Boy, did I eat a lot that weekend...


Happy Birthday Uncle Nuor!!

The great thing about the CNY week was I only had to go to school for three days!
And then came Saturday, again.

Now, that Saturday, the 20th, we had another celebration. Mak Lel treated us to a lovely dinner at The Daily Grind, Bangsar, where I had Macaroni and Cheese and everyone else had something huge, except Tok Abah. Hehehe... You see, Tok Abah ordered something diferent than the usual steak and burgers. He thought he wanted to try something new.

When the food came, this is what he got...



It was hillarious! I mean, look at his expression! I guess he was disappointed at first but the food turned out to be good and filling too. So, in the end, everybody was happy!


Maammmmaaammm!!



Oh, and I had another 'happening' weekend too! On Saturday, prior to the dinner, I went shopping at Subang Parade with Mak Lel and Aunty Huda while Dadda played football with his colleagues and on Sunday, I went shopping again with them at Ikano and Bangsar, while Dadda was playing golf with Papa, Ayah Ngah and Ayah De, hehe... Owh, I forgot to mention that Nek Wan and Wan Dak was in Subang too.

So, are you jealous that I had a 'blasting' February? Hehe... very interesting weekends indeed...

February 2010 happenings...

Wow! A lot of things happened this month indeed, and it's only just the first half!
I don't even know where to start...

Hmm... let me see, first there was the premiere of our Garage Sale held at Kg Tunku, PJ house on the 6th and 7th. Everybody took part and sold old and new stuff. Mommy even managed to sell off some of my old clothes and a few of her old kebayas. Dadda managed to sell some of his stuff too.


I'm in charge of sorting the VCDs, just can't seem to get enuff of it!


Playing with the toys inside the box!

In fact, everybody else like Tia, Che Ah, Cu Na, Aunty Alma and even Ayah Ngah managed to sell something. All in all, we got quite a good response. From what I've heard, we're planning for another one in June.

Next there was Papa's birthday on the 6th which we celebrated the night after due to the Garage Sale. We had dinner at a restaurant called Pizza vs Satay. Of course, they don't just sell Pizza and Satay but other good fusion food as well...


Mammam time again!

On Tuesday, the 9th, we celebrated Mak Lel's birthday at Windmill restaurant in Subang Jaya. Her birthday was actually the day before but because of some 'Japanese strangers', we couldn't celebrate on that day itself! Anyway, we 'pulled' (pooled) money (well, at least Mommy, Aunty Huda, Aunty Ina and Pak Su did..) and bought Mak Lel a pair of white gold ear rings.


Happy Birthday Mak Lel...!


In front of WindMill..

On that night too, at around 9.40pm, Aunty Alma gave birth to an adorable baby girl.
Yes, I've got a new cousin now and her name is Adeena Zariya. She looks exactly like her elder brother, Abang Aimar. We went to visit them at the hospital on Wednesday after fetching Mommy for her office. Needless to say, I no longer am the 'baby' in the family....


Don't they look alike? :)

After visiting Aunty Alma and her new baby at the hospital
we went straight to see Che Ah at Cineleisure. She had a bowling tournament that night and we were there to support her. Aunty Huda came and joined us there too and we had dinner together. Che Ah got 3rd place in the tournament. Congrats Che Ah!


Che Ah with her team mates and their medals!

This weekend, Mommy, Dadda and everyone else will be on a long leave because of Chinese New Year. I don't know what their plans are but I'm really hoping that Mommy and Dadda will take me someplace where we can watch the Lion Dance! Keeping my fingers crossed!

Will keep you updated.
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!
