Naku, kahit Rated PG, hindi!
Because our theme turned to be “Happy Raviv Day!”
But, I really had fun. Promise. Ewan lang kay Randy. Hihi.
Days before our anniversary, I told Randy it was OK with me not to celebrate it. After all, we have just returned from a fun post-summer outing with our loves, our Brain Train family. But Randy is big on anniversaries and Valentine’s Days and other occasions (except for birthdays. Baligtad kami). He told me we have to do something. He wanted to have a romantic getaway, but since we are barely recovering from the hectic summer, I had no time to book flights, hotels, etc. In the end, I suggested that we just bring Raviv with us and watch “How To Train Your Dragon”. Raviv has been addicted to it since a week before our anniversary. In fact, he insists that he be called “Hiccup”. As in nagagalit ‘pag hindi Hiccup ang tawag sa kanya. Kumusta naman ‘di ba? And he had been watching “How To Train Your Dragon” (first part) for several nights. And since our only vacant time was on June 28, plus the screening of “How To Train Your Dragon” was already pulled out of other cinemas, we needed to habol. Kawawa naman si Raviv if not. Thus, adios romantic getaway!
The only cinema nearby where “How To Train Your Dragon 2” was at Festival Mall. We arrived at Festival almost an hour before the screening. We hurried to buy tickets and just ordered take-out—we no longer had time to have a proper lunch (like I said, ang mga ganap sa araw ni iyon ay anti-romantic).
We just ate at the cinema. Randy got his favorite grilled cheeseburger at Kenny Roger’s; Raviv ate calzone from Sbarro; and I had hotdog burger from Jollibee. Parang baligtad kami ni Raviv ‘no? Haha!
I immensely enjoyed watching “How To Train Your Dragon 2”. Friends have already told me it was really good, and that it was a far cry from its already-entertaining prequel. So I had high expectations. But even then, it exceeded my expectations! No scene was ever boring or dragging. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute! If I were to do a review of “How To Train Your Dragon 2”, I’d give it five stars and two thumbs up! That part when Hiccup cha**eng** (so as to not spoil it to a reader who hasn’t watched) the Al**a gave me goosebumps! I went out of the cinema feeling giddy! I may have actually enjoyed it more than Raviv, although I could not help but fantasize how much more fun it would have been had we watched it on 4DX.
After the movie, we shopped on the third floor to buy Raviv toys from Toy Town. I know that everyone says Raviv has already so many toys. I think so too. But don’t say that to Randy—he honestly believes Raviv deserves them all! Sabi nga sa akin, “’Di ba andami mo na ring damit at bags? O ba’t bili ka pa nang bili?” O dabah? So shaddap na lang tayo.
Randy rationalized that he bought the Marvel Universe gift set because it was on super sale. In fairness, the sale price was really cheap compared with the original price:
Ay I have kwento about Raviv’s generosity and love for his cousin: while Randy was lined up at the cashier counter, I was looking at these because I got curious: [Read more...]
