Larger than life ex­pe­ri­ence

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - MOVIES -

DID you know Do­rae­mon was once a yel­low ro­bot cat and had ears? But one day, a mouse ro­bot ate his ears and Do­rae­mon cried so hard that the tears rubbed the yel­low paint off. That’s how he turned into the iconic blue ro­bot cat that we Malaysians know and love to­day.

Do­rae­mon fans are in for a treat be­cause from Dec 14 to March 23, 2014, the 100 Do­rae­mon Se­cret Gad­gets Expo will be held at Viva Home, Kuala Lumpur. It will fea­ture 100 life-sized Do­rae­mon Fig­ures, each hold­ing a gad­get from the comic books such as The Dokodemo Door, Head Copters and Mem­ory Bread.

One of the main at­trac­tions at this ex­hi­bi­tion will be the re-cre­ation of mem­o­rable scenes from the comic books. For in­stance, mem­bers of the pub­lic can re­live the wed­ding scene be­tween No­bita and Shizuka in real-life.

And when you are hun­gry, head over to the cafe for some spe­cial cui­sine.

“There will be a Do­rae­mon-themed cafe where Do­rae­mon’s favourite food, such as Do­rayaki and Mem­ory Bread and more, will be served,” said di­rec­tor of An­i­ma­tion In­ter­na­tional Steve Chow.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is held to mark the 100 years be­fore Do­rae­mon’s birth in the year 2112. As such, the ex­hi­bi­tion has been trav­el­ling across the globe since last year. It has been held in Hong Kong, Sin­ga­pore and Tai­wan.

“Do­rae­mon gives hope and teaches peo­ple good val­ues through fun and unique ways,” Chow en­thused. – Kathryn Lee
