Manuela is the Almeida family’s pet tortoise. In 1982, she disappeared from their home in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The family tried looking for her but Manuela was never seen again…until last month.

The family have come to accept that their beloved tortoise may have slipped away from their house during that time in 1982, when their house was undergoing renovation. They thought Manuela may have gone to the forest near their home in Realengo.

Earlier this month, the Almeida family was cleaning up the storage room. Leandro, one of the sons, took out a box containing an old record player and placed it on the pavement for the garbage men to collect. One of the neighbors said, “You’re not throwing out the tortoise as well, are you?”

What Leandro saw astonished him. There, inside the old box, was Manuela, looking alive and well after 30 years of being declared lost. Turned out that she survived being locked in the storage room for three decades.

Manuela may have sustained herself eating the termites from old furniture. Also, tortoises are known for their resiliency and long life. Manuela is a red-footed tortoise, one of the species that can go for long periods without food.

Kids dancing are always a pleasure to watch. Aside from the quirky dance moves they make, their cute faces and smiles are all so adorable! While some videos online only showcase funny movements that are expected from kids their age, a few are packed with raw talent. But in this viral video we found online, not only did the featured kid exhibited amazing dance moves and cuteness, she also showed what not all kids her age can master -- the attitude.

In a tap dance recital clip, Johanna, together with two more dancers graced the stage with a beautiful pink ensemble that is all too cuddly. But when Aretha Franklin's song, Respect started playing, we knew we were in for a treat. True enough, Johanna worked it like a pro! Her fierce facial expressions and attitude were amazing!

Watch the video here:



Johanna surely has a long way to go but we think we just laid our eyes on a future superstar! What do you think? Let us know in the comment box below and share this post to your family and friends too!

Camping is a fun activity for family and friends. It is a time to relax, commune with nature and stay away from the busy life once in a while. However, we must admit that preparing for an overnight outdoor getaway can be a challenge. Because we are away from home, we want to make sure that we bring EVERYTHING we need during the trip to avoid being hassled in the process. If only we could bring our entire kitchen with us to ensure our families eat a good meal while away from home...

Well, this is not a fantasy anymore. We saw a video of a compact Gidget Retro Teardrop Camper that has left us all drooling! It is a tent, kitchen and a camping closet all in one! At first, it looks like a small vehicle that is bizarrely shaped like a teardrop, but when the woman opened each and every door/ drawer, we can't help but be amazed!

Watch the video here:



Now, that's we call camping in style and comfort! What do you think? Let us know in the comment box below and share this post to your family and friends too!

We all have our dream houses. Some of us have wild visions for our the perfect home, especially if we have a knack for things weird and eccentric. For example, dog-lovers may want to have a dog-themed house as well - may it be through furniture, wallpapers and overall design, an enthusiast will surely want to inject his/ her own passion to the ultimate house.

We found this video presentation of a real estate company, which showcases what is called, "The Mushroom House," or "The Pod House". From the outside, we can see that it is indeed inspired by the wild plant. It is shaped like a mushroom, designed like a mushroom and yes, named after a mushroom. The house has created so much impact that it has become a historic landmark in the town of Perinton in 1989.

Watch the presentation here:
