A Young Man Named Solatro
There was a young man named Solatro who loves to play football.
One day Solatro went to a football team’s office named Shartadrol.
He went in and asked the manager, “Can I join this team and play for the Almador Cup?”
He trained very hard and became a very good football player.
At last Shartadrol’s coach told Solatro, “Now you may join us.”
Solatro was very happy that he could join the team.
During the Almador Cup final match when Shartadrol played against Hanianon, Solatro played very well and he scored two goals.
But suddenly, Hanianon’s Jamlil pushed Solatro down and Solatro was badly injured.
The referee gave Jamlil a red card and a penalty kick for Shartadrol.
Shartadrol’s stiker, Lalakort kicked the ball and scored a goal.
And when the game was over Shartadrol won 3-0.
Anyway Solatro had to retire from playing football because of his injuries.
He was very sad but he would not want to sit and cry about it.
He decided to start a business .
Solatro worked very hard and at last he became a very successful businessman.
The moral of the story is, work hard in everything we do, do not give up and keep on trying.
I Watched Small Potatoes :)
‘Small Potatoes’ is the latest TV shortform series by the Little Airplane Productions.
It is created, written and directed by Josh Selig, the creator of ‘Wonder Pets’and ‘3rd & Bird’.
I first knew about ‘Small Potatoes’ on Jan 29, 2011 when Mr. Josh Selig sent me a comment on my post, ‘3rd & Bird‘.
I am very happy and proud to received comments from Mr. Josh Selig!
He also gave me the link to listen to one of the songs from ‘Small Potatoes’, ‘Imagination’.
The shows airs in Spring 2011 but I can’t watch them because I don’t have cable TV or satellite TV at home.
And today I am very happy because I can watch them on YouTube!
The episode that I first watched was the first episode, ‘Imagination (Give It A Try)’.
I really love the show 🙂
I think ‘Small Potatoes’ is so cute and sweet and the song are very beautiful.
Thank you to Mr. Josh Selig for creating beautiful animations and nice songs that promotes good values 🙂
Children television series must promote good values and teach children to be a better person and not promoting bad values and violence.
Peep, And The Big Wide World
I watch Peep, and the Big Wide World on TV AlHijrah.
It was really fun to watch and the animation is simple but nice.
The story is about Peep (the yellow, round chick), Chirp (the red, round robin) and Quack (the blue, oval duck) discovering different things in each episodes.
The story teaches us nature and simple science.
The first Peep, And The Big Wide World episode that I watch was ‘The Mystery Of The Thing That Went And Came Back’ and ‘Peep’s Color Quest’.
The cast are:
The Blue Jays
TV AlHijrah is a television company owned by JAKIM.
It is one of the new television channel in Malaysia.
I love to watch TV AlHijrah because most of the programs promote good values and do not have much violence.
My favourite program is ‘3rd & Bird’ but sadly the program is now replaced by ‘Peep and The Big Wide World’ 😕
I enjoy watching ‘Peep and The Big Wide World’ but I prefer ‘3rd & Bird’ because its story line is more interesting, it has lots of wonderful songs and the animation is so beautiful and so cute 🙂
‘3rd and Bird’ is created by Josh Selig, who is also the creator of ‘Wonder Pets’.
Please >>>click here<<< for my post on ‘3rd & Bird’.
I also like to watch ‘Tao Shu‘, ‘Muhammad Utusan Terakhir’, ‘Ejen Halal’ and ‘Menu Alam’.
I met Uncle Nizal Mohammad of TV AlHijrah at the book launch of ‘Minda Tertawan‘.
I told him to air a new animation series, ‘Small Potatoes’ on TV AlHijrah 😉
‘Small Potatoes’ is created by Josh Selig who wrote one of my favourite songs, ‘Imagination’ 🙂

‘Imagination’, A Song From ‘Small Potatoes’
I knew about this new TV show when Mr. Josh Selig sent me a comment on my post, 3rd & Bird.
Mr. Josh Selig is the founder and president of the Little Airplane Productions.
He is the creator of ‘Wonder Pets’ and ‘3rd & Bird’.
In his comment he told me about their new show, ‘Small Potatoes’.
‘Small Potatoes’ will be aired in Spring 2011.
There are four main characters in ‘Small Potatoes’.
‘Small Potatoes’ is a short form animated series.
And Mr. Josh Selig wrote to me that, ” ‘Small Potatoes’ promotes good values and is also a very cute and very musical show”.
I think Ruby is very cute.
Anyway I cannot check out the songs because I do not have a Facebook account.
I hope ‘Small Potatoes’ can promote good values and as fun as ‘Wonder Pets’ and ‘3rd and Bird’.
Please check out my new post, ‘Imagination’, A Song From ‘Small Potatoes’ to listen to a song from ‘Small Potato’ 🙂
3rd & Bird
I watch 3rd & Bird on TV AlHijrah.
It was real fun and the animation is so beautiful.
The story is about Samuel, Rudy and Muffin playing, singing, dancing and exploring all around the 3rd & Bird.
The stories teach us good values.
The characters help each other and they work together.
I read on the internet that 3rd & Bird is originally from Cbeebies.
But the first time I watched it, I thought it was from Nick Jr.
And 3rd & Bird reminds me of the Wonder Pets.
I think it is because the creator of 3rd & Bird is Josh Selig and the creative director is Jennifer Oxley.
They are also the creator and the creative director of Wonder Pets.
The first 3rd & Bird episode that I watched was ‘Go Camping and Starry Night’.
In Malaysia 3rd & Bird is aired daily on TV AlHijrah at 3:30 pm.
The cast are:
- Muffin – Eden Jarrett – a pre-school lovebird.
- Samuel – Sam Lewis – Muffin’s elder brother.
- Rudy – Morgan Gayle – Called a cockatoo in the program, but looks like a Cockatiel, Samuel’s best friend. She wears a bracelet of colored stones on her ankle.
- Quinn – Preston Nyman – a puffin, works as an inventor; appears to be a teenager.
- Mr Beakman – Michael Fenton Stevens – the children’s teacher, a wise toucan who frequently acts as the voice of parental authority.
- Missy – Charlotte Leslie-Cameron – a French Great Blue Turaco.
- Mrs Billingsley – Anna Nygh – a gardening kiwi with a New Zealand accent.
Now is Ramadan; the Muslim’s holy month.
During Ramadan we fast, perform the solat Tarawih and read the Quran.
We perform the solat Tarawih only in Ramadan.
When we do the solat Tarawih, we will get lots of extra rewards from Allah.
But first we need to pray our daily solats:
Subuh 2 raka’ats
Zohor 4 raka’ats
Asar 4 raka’ats
Maghrib 3 raka’ats
Isyak 4 raka’ats
I think it’s easier to mark the raka’ats on a piece of paper in case we forget how many raka’ats we had prayed.
When I perform the solat Tarawih, I pray 20 raka’ats.
That means I pray ten times because each of the prayer has 2 raka’ats.
People usually pray the solat Tarawih 8 raka’ats or 20 raka’ats.
After the solat Tarawih, I first do the solat Witir 2 raka’ats.
After that I solat Witir 1 raka’at.
The total raka’ats in solat Tarawih is in even numbers but the raka’ats of solat Witir must be in odd numbers.
Cleaning Up Contest
Once upon a time, there was a cleaning up contest. There were 100 people who wanted to join the contest. The contest was only for one hour. The fastest person who can finish cleaning up wins the contest.
Anyway, there were only 10 people at the start of the contest. But when it was 10 more minutes before the contest ended, 90 more people came to join the contest. They were late because they lived very far.far away.
The last person who reached there tried very hard to win the contest. He did not give up. Those who were early did not try very hard. He was also very good at cleaning up because he always cleans up his toys. At last he won the contest!
The moral of the story is do not give up, always try very hard and always clean up your toys 🙂
Ways To Heal Our Earth
Stop the wars because the wars destroy trees, buildings, animals, humans and caused pollutions and wars can destroy our Earth.
Stop doing all the things that can harm our Earth.
Plant lots and lots of trees.
Use organic farming to reduce pollution.
The government should find ways so that everybody can use solar energy for electricity.
Invent transports that do not cause pollution maybe we can use solar energy.
Plant lots of trees around factories to reduce air pollution.
Stop building factories around lakes, rivers or sea and houses.
Do not produce too much things to reduce industrial waste.
Do not use dangerous chemical in factories.
Stop demolishing buildings that are still strong and safe because we cause pollution during demolishing and we need a place to throw the rubble. When we build a new building we’ll need new bricks, glass, steel and wood and cause more damage to the Earth.
Clean up the rubbish around us.
Clean the polluted rivers and lakes. Take out the rubbish and treat the water.
Recycle, reuse and reduce doing things that is bad for our environment.
Show the people what will happen if we do not heal our Earth. Even littering can cause a disaster.
Stop smoking because it causes air pollution just like factories. If someone want to smoke they should only smoke in a cave deep in the jungle.
