Enteng Ng Ina Mo
Last Christmas, kids requested me to go with them to watch "Enteng Ng Ina Mo" at Times Square Cinema located inside SBMA. This is one of the entries at the Metro Manila Film Festival this year. I wanted to give them a treat for Christmas so I immediately obliged to their request. After all, I also wanted to see a tagalog film as I've never seen one for several months already. When we reached Times Square Cinema, I got the shock of my life. There were so many people waiting for their turns to buy a ticket. When I approached the counter to ask, they told me that they are actually selling the tickets for the next screening which is scheduled at 7:15 PM, to think that at the time we've reached the cinema, it's only around 6 PM. Meaning to say, they can no longer accommodate the moviegoers at the time. I asked the kids if they wanted to postpone our movie date the following day but these two were insisting. They suggested to just buy the tickets for the next screening and have our dinner first and go back there in time for the scheduled showing. So, just because that time, I also didn't want to go back home, so we've all decided to just go the restaurant just opposite the cinema.
Unfortunately, even the restaurant was full and we have to wait to be seated for about 30 mins. I wanted to go to another restaurant as I really don't like to wait that long, but my son wanted to dine at that resto, and so, we just opted to wait for a while.
We never had the chance to take some shots of the foods that we partake that night as the place was really crowded and this stopped us from taking photos. As expected, our dining experience was not so pleasant. The service was so lousy and the foods didn't turn out the way we expected.
The only consolation we had was that after dinner, we've enjoyed the movie and we all had a great time watching and laughing while munching some pop corns and having a sip of soda.
The film was really funny and once again, Ai Ai and Eugene Domingo never failed to entertain the crowd. It was all worth it.
But at the end of the day, I felt so happy seeing the smiles on the faces of the kids. Every time I get back home for my vacation, I always see to it that we will have some wonderful bonding moments.
I really wanted to make up for the lost times! :)
