I’m not sure what happened last Christmas but when I arrived in the office the next day, I was so sleepy and can’t get into my focus of doing my reports. My eyes keep on closing until I decided to take a nap in the Quiet Lounge.
I never got the chance to sleep in the room as I wasn’t able to get into a comfy position on a bed that is free to use by every employee in the company. Not to mention the pillow that I tried to keep of touching my face by using my two hands in between. After an hour of trying to get some sleep, I went back to my desk and back to my reports.
My friend Japok and I are planning to go to MOA that day to watch Avatar in IMAX. I never got the chance to see the movie before Christmas as I was so busy at my work and doing some Holiday rush. I was about to cancel it ‘coz I wanted to take some rest and sleep the whole day but the thought of not getting any chance to reward myself from all the stress I got makes me hail a cab to go South.
Watching movies during the Holiday Season in the Philippines is like committing suicide as all good movies will be stopped from being shown and replaced by all entries of the Metro Manila Film Festival aka MMFF. I’m not a big fan of Filipino films except those made by Star Cinema but I don’t feel like spending my hard earned money that time to some movies that will make me snore two hours or so. So that is why when I’ve learned that Avatar is still shown in IMAX
instead of Panday 3D LOL, I asked Japox if he wanted to watch it again for the fourth time.
I was aiming for the 1:40 PM show time but as we enter the IMAX Lobby, the only tickets available are those from 8PM and 11:15PM play time. Since I don’t have prior engagements next day morning, I decided to watch it on the 11PM screening and just goof around the mall while waiting. Here’s what we’ve done to kill time…
Ate at Mongkok
We also goofed around the mall and had videoke at Power Station.
Arrived home at around 4AM and with a smile on his face. The movie is great and the effects is just Outstanding! Kudos to James Cameron! He did it again!
It is worth the 8 hour wait!
