What a fantastic story!

Hi pals! Nice to meet you again ^_^ ! Well, during this Chinese New Year, I feel so peaceful and delightful as well! I visited my relatives’ houses and there we gave our warm greetings to each other, saying, “Kiong Hi!”. We enjoyed every snacks served by the host. My sister, younger brother, and I also received several Ang Paos from our elderly relatives. What a warm atmosphere! Afterwards, we just stay at home and enjoy our free time by watching movies!! Yihaa!

There is a movie I watched a few days ago (perhaps you’d watched it before). The title is Dr. Seuss’ HORTON Hears a Who!

It is not the latest movie but I truly recommend you to watch this, friends! It’s a great movie with hilarious animated characters and a simple but meaningful story. The main character is a lively witty elephant named Horton. He lives happily in the forest of Mount Nool together with other smaller (and eccentric-looking) animals. Albeit his huge size, he appears to be a kind-hearted and sensitive one compared to other friends in the neighborhood. Why? Because he’s the only one who can hear a tiny voice coming out from a speck of dust! Yup, the speck is blown to the forest and found by Horton. In fact, there is a community of super-duper microscopic creatures that live in the speck! They are called the Whos, who live in Whoville, with a Mayor as their chief. Besides having a big family (96 daughters and a son!), he has to bear the responsibility of being as great and honorable Mayor as his predecessors. Thus, his only son, Jojo, becomes his center of attention. However, Jojo is an introvert. He does not think his father can understand his way of thinking.
On the other hand, Horton the elephant is facing the threatening attitude from his neighbors toward him. A self-proclaimed Kangaroo, the main antagonist who always thinks Horton would give a bad example to the children, tries everything to make Horton deny about the existence of the Whos in the speck. In the struggle to protect the entire living beings in Whoville, Horton must find the safest place for the speck. The Whos, at the same time, have to work together to help Horton prove their existence to the “outer world”….
This movie is actually derived from a story written by Dr.Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel), a famous American author who also wrote How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, two famous comedian star as Horton and The Mayor. There is an inspiring quote as well as the moral from this movie : “A person’s a person, no matter how small.” Well, I hope this will be one of your favorite movies, don’t miss it!
