The Lego Movie was released in Malaysia on February 6, 2014.

On February 12, 2014, I watched the movie at TGV Cinemas, Wangsa Walk Mall.

It was really fun to watch the movie. There are lots and lots of funny scenes that we almost never stopped laughing throughout the whole movie. And the movie was far better than what I expected from watching the movie trailer on the internet. The best thing about watching The Lego Movie was that the movie was so entertaining that there was no boring moment at all.

Almost the whole scene was created using Lego bricks, the splashing water, fire and almost everything and they looked like real Lego. I find it very impressive to see how they created the movie using Lego character as the casts and how the animation was so real that they look just like the real Lego. They do not forget simple details like Lego figure’s hair that can be taken out from the figure’s head. So it becomes so real, like the way we play our Lego sets.

The animation is awesome and very beautiful especially with the 3D effect.

There is only one song in the movie, ‘Everything Is Awesome’, and the song is a very catchy song that we sang it all the way home after the movie.

The moral of the movie is to be creative and not only depending on manuals or instructions to do or build something. When we build things using Lego bricks, we can also build other things from the sets that we have and not only build the things that are shown in the instructions given.

But of course, I think that while it is fun to build something out of our own creativity, we must also learn to build things by following the instructions given. As in life, while being creative is good, there are times when we have to strictly follow the rules and instructions. There is no total freedom in life because if everybody is free to do anything they like, the world will be in a real mess.

Congratulations to Lego for creating such a very wonderful movie that could entertain both children and adults, either watching it alone or together with family and friends.

Wallace And Gromit

Wallace and Gromit on the moon in 'A Grand Day Out'.

I watch ‘Wallace and Gromit’ on TV3.

The story was about an inventor who loves cheese named Wallace and his smart dog named Gromit.

Wallace and Gromit chasing Feathers McGraw in 'The Wrong Trousers'.

The animation is beautiful; but not as beautiful as ‘3rd & Bird’ (please click here).

‘Wallace and Gromit’ is film with stop motion clay animation by Aardman Animations.

I like to watch the series because they are very funny.

My favourite story is ‘A Close Shave’.

The two main protagonists are Wallace and Gromit.

Shaun the sheep was the spin off of Wallace and Gromit.

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’.

TV AlHijrah

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’ 🙂

Tao Shu

I watch Tao Shu on TV AlHijrah.

It was fun.

The  story was about Tao Shu and his sister Ling Ling.

The story teach us good values.

I read on the internet that Tao Shu is originally from Peach Blossom Media.

Tao Shu and his family are Chinese just like my grandmother.

The first episode that I watched was about a plant that cannot be pulled out.

Anyway, Tao Shu’s animation and graphic is not very beautiful.

In Malaysia Tao Shu is aired Monday to Friday on TV AlHijrah at 5:00 pm.


The cast are:

I think Pocoyo or 3rd & Bird‘s animations and graphics are much better than Tao Shu.

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.
