Monsters everywhere!

30 June 2013

As planned, my Seventeen Sigaw sister Belle and I met up in TriNoma yesterday to watch Monsters University. I couldn't not watch it as Monsters, Inc. is my favorite Pixar movie and Mike Wazowski tops the list of my favorite Pixar characters!

In Monsters University, Mike Wazowski is the star. Young Mike is so freakin' cute, and it was fun seeing him be all nerdy because it reminds me of someone I used to know when she was still studying (read: me). Filled with laughs, the movie explores the relationship between Mike and Sully and how they became friends and how Randall became their archenemy before they worked as scarers in the Monstropolis' power company Monsters, Inc. You should watch it. The short film The Blue Umbrella shown before the movie is also very heartwarming, perfect for these rainy days we in the Philippines have been having. 

After the movie, Belle and went to the Monsters University Fair sponsored by Giordano happening in the mall's Activity Center and had a ball taking one another's photos!

I wish they had Monster mascots walking around to take pictures with but hey, I'm willing to take what I can get. 。◕‿◕。

I feel like I ate the whole day because while watching, we had burgers, fries, and sodas with us. After visiting the Fair, we had late lunch in Bigoli.

Belle had Baked Ziti, I had my fave Italian Chicken with Rice.
And when our other Sigaw sister Jazzy met with us, we had a heavy round of dessert at Red Mango: frozen yogurts, waffles, and coffee!

I can't believe we've been friends for about nine years already ever since we met in the now-defunct Seventeen Philippines' online message board!
After walking around the mall some more and buying some stuff, we separated ways once more. Belle lives in Tacloban and is only in Manila for training for her new job so I don't know when I will see her again (the last time I saw her before this was in October 2010!). Hope to meet up and catch up with our other Sigaw sisters soon! I also hope I can visit her and Janelle's hometown soon!

After the movie-lunch-dessert date with my girls, it was time for some testosterone in the form of the guys from my barkada in high school and another monster movie!

We kinda scrambled for tickets as only one cinema each in both TriNoma and SM North EDSA is still showing World War Z.  We ended up catching the 7:20 PM screening in SM North EDSA instead. I think Brad Pitt only gets finer with age. There were lots of WTF moments in the movie - Why the hell can the zombies run around so fast like that? Pandemonium, pandemonium everywhere! Do you think that could ever happen in real life? - and it was so not good for my second cup of coffee that day as I suffered from palpitations all throughout! LOL what a ride. But seriously, if that ever happens in real life, I'm screwed as I haven't exercised for such a long time now that I don't think I can run fast enough. If worse comes to worst I will just keel over and kill myself. (。_+)\

Glen, Ric, Jer, and Third
I miss our girl friends but they couldn't make it that day.
Also, Dianne is now abroad for work.
It was the first time I watched two movies at the cinema in one day, and I realized just last night that both of them featured monsters. Only difference is that the former's are super cute and the sort I would want to find in my closet like Boo's in Monsters, Inc. and the latter's, well, let's just say I wouldn't want them anywhere near me. Ever.

Ending this post with a sweet present from Belle:

A Le Petit Prince locket and journal for my growing collection
The locket is custom-made so a lot of thought went into it. She said The Little Prince stuff reminds her of me.
Thanks Belle, I really appreciate it!
Thank God for fictional monsters and steady Saturdays with some of my favorite people in the world.
