Mam: San ka punta? (Where are you going?)
Me: Manood ako ng sine. (I’m going to see a movie.)
Mam: Sino kasama mo? (Who are you going out with?)
Me: Si Allen, ka-opisina ko dati sa Intel. (Allen, an officemate before from Intel.)
Mam - Nonchalant face.
Something bout Mam’s reaction is frightening – this in line with the thought that Allen is generally a guy’s name. It’s either she’s thinking letter A. My daughter needs to get out with a guy sometimes. She’s not getting any younger. Really, it’s scary that she’s not threatened that Allen might be a guy!! Or letter B. She’s been working for some Saturdays now; I think she badly needs a life. Either case is really terrifying!!
Some people are not really keen on musical, me either. But there’s something with Lisa’s and Allen’s excitement on the said movie. So with my free passes, might as well go for it. And Mama Mia, I enjoyed it. :D
So yeah, it would’ve been really nice if it’s a get together for the 3 of us. Since the lead women are all set of threes in the movie, but then someone’s been MIA-ing on me lately, hehehe. Ahem. :P Betcha she’s gonna react here. :P
Anyways, I’ve been MIA-ing on this girl also and I felt ashamed that I was only remotely available in her lowest times. You all know her; remember the phone call in Samsung Soul event?? ;-) Mama Mia! It’s such a surprise seeing her at her best!! :) I was kind of expecting the opposite. She came in her nicest red dress and accessories. :) Fabulous!! It was one of the best tips I gave her whenever she calls, GO AHEAD AND PRETTIFY YOURSELF!! :P She obediently followed this, succumbing to “retail therapy” every week that it even came to the attention of her Mom. So I was like, “Geese, no wonder my Mam never questions me about it.” I mean, I can’t imagine her asking me same question for 4 years. :D
Allen: May nakasabay ako kanina sa MRT. From PE siya eh, letter M ang name nya eh.
Me: Ha. Sino?
She gave further descriptions.
Me: Ah c Alex!!
Mama Mia, letter M daw. Hahaha!!
We stopped by the bookstore first since we can’t be admitted yet inside the cinema. I’m not yet a book fan during the time we were at Intel but I now am and the sweet girl surprisingly bought me a book as a token of appreciation. Sweets!! :)
Wall-E, another movie to watch out forNow for my piece on the movie:
1. I love the venue of the shoot - a beautiful Island in Greece. :)
2. Pierce Brosnan still looks hot. :P
3. I still can’t get over Meryl Streep’s role as a loving mother. Visions of her in a suit still haunt me from the movie The Devil Wears Prada. :P
4. I love the wedding gown of the young girl.
5. I was deeply moved in one and only one scene. The Winner Takes It All moment. =,(
I was trying really hard to compose myself knowing that hey, there’s a girl beside me who just came from a heartbreak. But I wasn’t able to help it. The song is again one of those oldies that I’m familiar with but ironically, that’s the only time I realized its meaning. That never ending lesson in life of how some love are not really meant to be. Unfair but really, just like in the song “the rules must be obeyed.” Sad, sad, sad. Sniff, sniff, sniff. Tears were already pooling in my eyes at the very start of the chorus. I guess you can say I’m one of the world’s strongest women huh?? On a positive note, I now have one new song to try in videoke machines. :P
Dinner was spent in Burgoo – a unanimous choice since we both haven’t tried it there. Might as well make it memorable, right?? Service is not really bad, I mean the waiting time but they have this paper table cloth where you can doodle while waiting for the food. So here’s our end product, nyahaha!! Mama Mia, I’m such a poor artist. A simple pig!!! What the?!?! Ahahaha!!! Atleast Allen tried to sketch the lead girl Sophie in the movie. Wahaha!!
Me: San nga ba nakatira c Joan dati?? Letter T yun eh.
Me: Aaah!! Noveleta!!
Thigh-slapping laughter. Letter T daw. Wahaha!!! Oh dear, whatever happened to our memory??? Ahaha!!
It’s almost 9 PM when we finished. I was supposed to go to another friend’s house but it was already late. Yes, she’s from a heartbreak also. Geese, whatever happened to love yo?!?! Where is the love?? People killing people dying…ok, ok,ok enough. LOL. Well atleast it’s still working for others like the engagement I mentioned above. Coz if not, Mama Mia, I don’t know where else to get the hope from. *Sigh*
