Everyone definitely has a hobby right? A hobby can be said to be a regular activity done for fun, usually in one’s spare time, not professionally or with a salary.

Among the hobbies we can do such as fishing, playing video games, reading and many more. No matter who we are, hobbies can be enjoyed by everyone.

This includes one of the legendary football players, David Beckham. Still, did you know Beckham has a hobby of building LEGO?

It is said that he is quite obsessed with building LEGO even though he is in his 40s.

The interesting hobby was revealed during his interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in 2020 and Jimmy asked him about his colorful plastic building bricks hobby.

According to Beckham, his hobby of building LEGO has started since he was 8 years old until now.

“It’s before I had kids, I grew up making LEGO when I was eight or nine years old,” Beckham explained.

If seen through the Instagram post or story belonging to Beckham and his wife Victoria, sometimes there are times when Beckham is willing to build LEGO for hours.

Through the interview as well, Beckham said his wife sometimes likes to trolls him with his hobby.

“Actually I continue it and Victoria always laughs at me, she’ll come down at like two o’clock in the morning and I’ll be trying to finish a piece off. She posted something the other day and I think she said because it was like 11 years and above, she was like, ‘Really? You’re still up at two o’clock in the morning doing 11 years and above LEGO’?” Said, Beckham.

Beckham said he loves building LEGO because doing so, can keep him calm.

The 45 years old man’s hobby of building LEGO is undeniable. This is because he had previously built some LEGO on a large scale such as building Hogwarts Castle and also Disney Castle.

Apart from building a castle-shaped LEGO, Beckham also built a LEGO that can be said to be quite expensive such as the LEGO Tower Bridge which costs $400 (RM1,644). It had about 1,000 pieces and is almost a meter long, including more than 80 windows, a black taxi to drive across, and a drawbridge, which opens and closes.

However, the most expensive LEGO that Beckham has ever bought is the LEGO Taj Mahal. It is said that the set is no longer sold by LEGO and is now a valuable item with a price tag that can reach around $5500 (RM22,605).

Despite its high price, Beckham says he has never finished building it again.

“It’s going to make me sound really weird but when I was in Milan I had such a big amount of time on my hands that I found online that there’s a Taj Mahal Lego that you can buy.

“So I bought it and started building it when I was in Milan,” Beckham said in a 2010 interview.

“I only built some of it because I got injured halfway through … not building the Lego!

“I know it’s not a career but I love doing it. My boys are the same – they’re obsessed with building Lego,” Beckham added.

Upholding The Malay Tradition, These Are Different Styles On Wearing ‘Sampin’

Published

on

The tradition of wearing sampin has come way back since the generation of our elders. There are so many people that can be seen wearing sampin as part of their essential outfits. Definition of sampin according to Kamus Dewan would be as a sarong worn after wearing the pants in the Malay attire and usually from the waist to the knees only. Sampin is also used to complement the looks when wearing baju Melayu.

Nowadays, we often see people wearing sampin during Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Hari Raya Aidiladha, or any other formal events that require them to wear baju Melayu. There are actually so many different styles that can be used when someone is wearing sampin. All of these different styles come from different regions and sometimes bring different meanings for the wearer.

These are examples of different styles of wearing sampin:

1) Ikatan Pancung

The method on how to wear this style is just by using loose fabric. The fabric is wrapped around the waist and before reaching the end of the fabric, the fabric is “beheaded”. That means the fabric is pinned while letting the end of the fabric hang down.

2) Ikatan Kembung

This is the style of wearing sampin that usually worn by the bridegroom in any wedding custom of the Malays. The word kembung comes from the impression of looking like you are bloating when wearing this style. The fabric is pulled to the middle or side of the body to be tied and knotted in various ways so that it will stick to the waist.

3) Ikatan Lingkup

This is the usual way on how people wear sampin. The sheath fabric is rolled up and draped over the front or sides. Similar to how to wear a sarong for everyday needs.

4) Ikatan Anak Raja Lima

When wearing this style, you have to balance the fabric in the middle. Arrange and fold downwards. Finish the tiered layer. Take the bend and update the side ties at the waist.
