Despite a minor glitch, Earth Hour 2009 at Divisoria was a success. At exactly 8:30 pm last March 28, 2009, the Night Café at Divisoria was plunged into “darkness” except for the area of “Bonifacio Park” right in front of Jollibee across the Event Stage where organizers prayed (or wished) for a simultaneous switching off. But the lights at Bonifacio Park were still ON at 8:30 pm and the people there where gasping, wondering “WHY THEY COULD STILL SEE EACH OTHER?”. Well, the lights eventually went out in about 3 minutes. Same with Jollibee who switched their lights off just a few seconds after the globe lights of Boni Park went out.

The event program was still ongoing when we decided to hop off and fill our stomachs with FOOD…for dinner at Fabella’s at the Night Café. 2nd Venue was Bo’s Coffee (for about 5 minutes or something) just realizing we couldn’t order 3-in-1 and wished we brought with us our European dictionary or maybe a translator…
