The little guy has been getting so excited every time he sees the Toy Story 3 advert on TV. So last week I was all set to bring him to his first movie experience ever! That's because I could see him associate with the movie characters and I noticed too that his attention span is getting better.
So, once the big guy gave his green light, I got so worked out thinking of the fun we were going to have watching movie together! It was the most anticipated moment of my life! One of my son's FIRST experiences in doing something huge! Tengok movie with a 2 y.o is a huge experience in my book okay!
So last Saturday, off we went to buy tickets for the movie. The big guy went to check at QB but it was full house except for midnight show. Oh no! Midnight is no good as little guy would be asleep by then, so off we went shopping first before making a stop at GSC Gurney Plaza. We reached GSC at around 6:30, and the next available slot for Toy Story 3 was at 9ish pm. The big guy refused to wait that long as we've been out since afternoon. So we had to settle for the available shows instead. Sob sob!
Seriously, I was soooo disappointed that we didn't managed to catch the Toy Story. Now, I don't know about you. But I seriously hate the way it makes me feel when I don't get to fulfill my baby's desire. Cehh! Macam lah dia kisah sangat kan. Come on, he's only 2 years! He wouldn't miss what he didn't get. But I don't know why, I was seriously sebak ja tetiba! I was thinking all sorts of things like "His first movie experience ever, and not watching something he had been so psyched about!". And things like that you know. I guess fathers don't get emotional like that, the way we mothers do. Tsk tsk tsk.
First popcorn experience!
First 1901 experience!
Oh and to make matters worse for me, every time he saw the Toy Story banner/bunting, the little guy would shout and jump with joy "Woooooww! Toy Stoyie!" and made people around him laughed looking at his over-excitement. Lagiiii la sebak mama dia kan!
Anyway, once we were inside the cinema - watching Nanny McPhee instead - the little guy was just excited all the same. He was quite jakun looking at big screen TV and the fantastic surround system, that he didn't take his eyes off the screen for the whole 10 minutes. But his attention span lasted for only that long, before he discovered the joy of the kerusi lipat and started to sandwich himself in between them. And trying to squeeze himself along the aisle and between his parents' legs. And oh, he even went overboard by asking for popcorn from the kakak seating in front of him! Nasib the kakak thought the he was cute instead of annoying. I think. Cause the kakak just grinned joyously at him. Whatever.
However, the worst part was, he couldn't stop talking so loudly that I was afraid someone would throw eggs at us right there and then. Luckily no sumpah seranah came our way, though I noticed and tried to ignore some hateful stares from a couple of ladies after the show ended. Hiks. Anyway. You can't blame me! I tried to be discreet with him by whispering every time I wanted to talk to him, but the big guy spoke to him in his normal voice every time, which in that hushed environment sounded like a bomb explosion at Pearl Harbour! Haih! So the little guy, taking cue from his dad, thought that it was okay to scream like he always does. At one point of the movie, where the pigs were doing amazing stunts on the screen, he shouted so loud "Woowwwwwww!!!! PIG FLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!" that I almost went into hiding under the chair. Oh tapi tak muat, I was too big for the minute space. Haha!
The movie was quite good, and I enjoyed it despite not paying 100% attention to what was shown on the screen. I know the little guy had such fun time too, though he didn't understand half of it. But the best thing was, he just loved being in the cinema as it was totally a new experience for him. Oh, he didn't tell me that! I just made it all up to make it sound as if it was such unforgettable experience for a 2 y.o like him. Hahaha!!
But seriously, despite not getting to watch what we initially planned to watch, the experience was still priceless. Hopefully the big guy tak serik wanna bring his son to the movie again. We still have time to catch the Toy Story 3 this weekend kan kan kan! Hehehe.
Oh, since tak dapat tengok the movie, I bought the toy for him instead. Now my days are filled with the rifle shots by the bravest galaxy defender ever, Muhammad Aqil Irfan!! *pengsan!*
