The Hobbit Dollhouse That Bilbo Baggin Lives In [34 PICS]

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit." I am sure Bilbo Baggin must be happily resting in the comfort of his Bag End home after a grueling expected Journey with his dwarfy friends and Gandalf. Yes! Yours truly is a big fan of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings. Of course we have to thank Peter Jackson for bringing these epic adventures to live in his unforgettable movies. The most iconic landmark that makes me feel so warm is always the Hobbits' Hole. I wish I could have a house like the one that Bilbo has. :)

Behold the Hobbit Hole

Owning a real Hobbit hole like that would be quite difficult as you need to have a hill of your own first. However the next best thing would be a Hobbit Dollhouse. I don't play with dolls but...I don't mind playing with dolls from Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit. And to have a Hobbit dollhouse would be real damn cool! Apparently Maddie Brindley had crafted what I believe is the most beautiful Hobbit Dollhouse in the whole wide world. OMG~how can someone build it to be so meticulously perfect?

What do you think? Honestly I am really envious of Maddie because she is really a gifted person whose magical touches have conjured such a unworldly Hobbit Hole. The intricacy of her creation is really mind-boggling! One must be wondering if she is the person who created the whole set for Peter Jackson. Lord of The Ring and The Hobbit fans must be drooling at the sight of this miniature Bag End house right? I know I am. Aww...can I have one to be placed right beside my working desk? :p

Yupe~it will be at MITC Ayer Keroh from the 24th of April (Friday) right up to 4th of May (Monday). So altogether you will a whopping 11 days from 10a.m. in the morning to 10p.m. at night to drop by at MITC to meet the Big Bad Wolf personally.

The Big Bad Wolf is coming to Malacca. :)

Venue: MITC, Ayer Keroh Melaka
Date: 24th April - 4th May 2015
Time: 10a.m. to 10p.m.

Students who have their BR1M book vouchers can start counting down the day(s). Next Friday will be the day! Yeah~I can't wait myself. I have MR250 of BR1M book vouchers to be used as well. Yes. I am also a student. I am grateful to the government for this ONLY brilliant plan of theirs. These BR1M book vouchers can really allow students, especially those from not so affluent families to buy good books to read. Ha :D I plan to use all of them to buy lots of children books for our little ones. I am sure they will be excited and smiling from ear to ear. This would be their second visit to the Big Bad Wold Book Fair.

There will be lots of...BOOKS!

So make sure you are ready for the books! Ha :D

So before you actually visit this biggest book fair in Malacca, what should you do? Firstly, make sure you have plenty of rest the day before. This is because you will need a lot of energy and focus to hunt books that you really want to buy. Rest assured that you will definitely be spoiled for choices. Secondly make sure you bring along your water to keep yourself hydrated. We will never know how long that elusive books search of ours will take. More importantly, remember to bring your own luggage if you are going to buy a lot, a lot (really a lot) of books. The rule of thumb: the bigger the better! Ha :D

Yes~the BIGGER the BETTER!

P.S.: Hopefully you guys will not miss this golden opportunity to buy tonnes of books. Reading is good! :)

H1N1 Killed A Year 5 Pupil In Malacca: Symptoms of H1N1 & What We Can Do To Minimize The Spread Of H1N1

Yesterday, my boss called all the staff for an extraordinary meeting to inform us that a year 5 pupil in a primary school near our office has been suspected to be infected by the deadly H1N1 virus. I was dumbstruck upon hearing this saddening news. We were told that the little boy was said to have fallen into coma last Friday after having high fever. And today...I saw in prime time news...the little boy had succumbed to the infectious disease. My deepest condolences to the family especially the parents! :'(

My heart sank when I heard that the boy did not make it. As a parent...I know how painful it is to see our little one falls sick...let alone... *speechless* Again...my condolences to the family. It rattles me how quick this H1N1 attacks the little boy. Apparently the boy was said to have contracted the fatal virus in an after-school care class. Probably he came into contact with a lot of other pupils? However...the authorities are still investigating the source of this H1N1. Hopefully it could be traced as soon as possible so that no one else will be victimized.

 photo 02 Symptoms of H1N1 amp What We Can Do To Minimize The Spread Of H1N1_zpsupryasnj.png

Symptoms of H1N1 (Swine Flu)
~FEVER
~Cough
~Sore Throat
~Runny Nose
~Nausea
~Vomiting
~Muscles & Joints Pain
~Diarrhea

Everyone should remain vigilant and be more careful now. Knowing that H1N1 is contagious and deadly, we should all keep an open eye at our surroundings, other people, our family members and especially ourselves. Look out for symptoms of H1N1 that could actually help to save the lives of our beloved family members and ourselves. Do not take anything lightly and when in doubt, please consult a doctor immediately.

 photo 03 Symptoms of H1N1 amp What We Can Do To Minimize The Spread Of H1N1_zpsonk7exs2.jpg

What We Can Do To Prevent The Spread of H1N1?

  • Avoid hugging and kissing and shaking hands when greeting.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when coughing and sneezing.
  • Dispose of used tissue immediately after use.
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water.
  • If you have flu-like symptoms, seek medical advice immediately.
  • If you have flu-like symptoms, keep a distance of at least 1 mete from other people.
  • If you have flu-like symptoms, stay home from work, school or crowded places.

Apart from that, we should all do whatever we can do minimize the spread of H1N1. Yes! We can prevent it from infecting us and at the same time we can also prevent ourselves from spreading the disease (touch wood) if we suspect that we have got it. So hereby I hope all of us can do our part to stop more tragic episodes from happening. I know how painful it is to lose someone we love dearly. Let us stop this deadly H1N1 from wreaking our lives! :(

Jordan & Jasmine Trying To Sing Goodbye By Who Is Fancy

Recently when I have started listening to Who Is Fancy's Goodbye, both Jordan boy and Jasmine girl have begun to love it as well. Every day for the past 1 week, they have been pestering me to play them this Goodbye song again and again. I relented each time and after listening to this song repeatedly, both of them seem able to roughly sing it. They sing it when they are in the car, they sing it when they are bathing. Heck! They even sing Goodbye before they go to bed. Ha :D

 photo 01 Jordan amp Jasmine Trying To Sing Goodbye By Who Is Fancy_zps5rzahjtn.jpg
Jordan boy wants to sing Goodbye. :)

Apparently Jordan boy and Jasmine girl really love this song so much that they want to use a microphone to sing this song. After searching high and low all around the house, leaving no stone unturned...they have finally found something that they believe is a "microphone". Ha :D Actually it was the remote of a portable massager. But who cares right? As long as it looks like a mic, we can just sing our hearts out!

 photo 02 Jordan amp Jasmine Trying To Sing Goodbye By Who Is Fancy_zpsqpjv0ui7.jpg
Come on Jasmine don't be shy.

 photo 03 Jordan amp Jasmine Trying To Sing Goodbye By Who Is Fancy_zpswr42wdvd.jpg
Yeah~that's how you sing it. :p

So wifey recorded their funny antics when they were in the 4th room of our house, having an audition or sort of. I think they had a lot of fun singing for the camera. Our Jordan boy got the ball rolling by singing the few initial lines, then suddenly Jasmine girl joined his brother to sing the "chorus" part of that is what I think it was. After that, it was Jasmine's turn to sing. The whole singing idea was actually rather funny to her and you could see her cracking up after singing the "U~U~U" part. Ha :D My wife and I really had fun watching them singing...and fighting with each other. :p

Hahaha :D Daddy will never forget how the 2 of you sang this song. :p
To listen to the original song click here.

Wifey and I recorded this priceless moment because our two little babies are really growing up very, very fast. I hope they will watch this video of themselves singing when they grow up. It is a proof how "loving" they both are. :p Kids are really innocent when they are young huh. I hope both of them will continue to stay that way right up to adulthood. It's ok to be naughty and michievous but not evil or even malicious. :p So let's sing~Goodbye now!

Tug-of-"microphone"-Priceless!

Life Is Unfair: The Moment You Are Born, It Is All About The Spoon In Your Mouth!

Like it or not...fair is never a word that could be applied on everyone's life. In fact...the moment when we are born, we are destined to live a life that is different from each and everyone of our peers. So we are going to talk about monetary inequality here today. They say when we are brought into this world...we are all equals to each other. Or so they say. But we know by hard that this isn't the case. Some from ultra rich family are born with silver (golden or even platinum) spoons in their mouth! So what can you do if you only have a stainless steel one between your teeth? So who should you blame? Parents? Definitely no. How about God aye?

 photo 01 9Gag Life Is Unfair The Moment You Are Born Is All About The Spoon In Your Mouth_zpsfzrfcaqh.jpg
How many of you could FEEL this "pain"?
Saw this on 9Gag and it totally hit me in the head.

This unfair advantage that others possess could really cause you to have green eyes and of course it will not be great for you in the long run...spiritually and emotionally speaking. But what will a 7 year old know? He is using a rusty pencil case handed down by his brother and his friend who is sitting beside him is using a brand new, multipurpose pencil case equipped with sharpener and even music. Why couldn't the former have the same pencil case? Why can't daddy and mommy buy the same pencil case for him? Don't they love him enough? Obviously it is all about the money.

 photo 02 Life Is Unfair The Moment You Are Born Is All About The Spoon In Your Mouth_zpsdzutgzqw.jpg
So which bowl are you in?

As we grown older, we will begin to understand more about this unfair world. By then we, of course have been wiser and will be understanding with our own circumstances and shortcomings in terms of financial background. However our empathy will not stop us from yearning to have the better things life right? Who wouldn't have green eyes when everyone around you is using iPhones and Samsung top flagship smartphones? After all having the more expensive stuffs do make us look cooler, "richer", more acceptable and definitely more desirable, no?

 photo 04 Life Is Unfair The Moment You Are Born Is All About The Spoon In Your Mouth_zpsgdsjlkqs.jpg
Sometimes...you do feel like him (the man in black) right?

When we are old enough to obtain our driving licences, we will realize the financial disparities between us and our peers get even ridiculously wider. You can consider yourself lucky if you have a motorbike for you to ride. But when it is raining and you see your friends driving in the comfort of their air-conditioned imported cars...and they are waving at your as their cruise pass your puny bike...you really feel like turning back and go home, no? Yeah...some people have to work very hard to buy a car...and some people just have a car without lifting a freaking finger at all. It's all about the spoon that you have in your mouth aye?

 photo 03 Life Is Unfair The Moment You Are Born Is All About The Spoon In Your Mouth_zpswauhd8lu.jpg
The truth is...when we compare....
there will always be people who are better than us
and there will also be people who are doing far worse than us!

Then comes graduation and after getting 7 or 8 As, you realize that you could not enroll into your dream universities because you are not smart enough (straight 10As to get full scholarship) or rich enough? Then your not-so-smart peers who scored ZERO A who are rich could get into any universities that they want because they family could easily afford to send them there. So what's the point of studying really, really hard? This is the breaking point when you realize that life is really ridiculously unfair?

 photo I Love My Family_zpsqecyluge.jpg
I am RICH because of my wife and babies. :)

Have I wallowed in such a self-pity before? Sure I did. But life is always unfair to those who do not make the best out of whatever he or she has. Right now I am a very grateful person with whatever that I have. Sometimes it is easy to forget how blessed we are; Sometimes it is easy to forget how lucky we are to even be alive; Sometimes it is easy to forget how to love and appreciate those who have always loved us. If we know how to count our blessings, we will realize how "rich" we really are. Right now~I feel that I am probably the richest person in the world. Ha :D

P.S.: Honestly~when yours truly me was young, I have never felt (maybe just once of twice) really deprived...materialistically speaking because I have a loving father, mother and brother. And ouh yeah~I am the one with the fancy pencil case with music and click-open sharpener. :p
