High School Musical 3 as a reward

As promised, hubby and I brought the kids to watch High School Musical 3 (HSM 3) at Deira City Center. All this while we'd been like 'ignoring' everytime Along hinted to us about HSM 3 and that most of her classmates had watched it. It was supported by Ain everytime Along mentioned about it. Ayah always said to them Nanti Ayah belikan CD ya...Tiket wayang kat sini mahal la 30 inggit, kalau kat Msia 8 inggit je. But since we've promised a reward for their pleasant performance in school, so they deserved to be pleased with what they like...

Friday was a public holiday here in Dubai. A large crowd was expected to be seen at the cinema. There were so many movies playing at the same time. Nasib baik tak termasuk wayang Golmaal Returns (some Hindi or Tamil movie not sure...he he). It was already a long queue when we reached at the ticket counter. Hubby had to spend about half an hour before we managed to get the 7.30pm seats. It wasn't long enough for the three As as they were having a good time at a toys shop nearby.

After having dinner and performing Maghrib payer, we went straight to the cinema. Although Apit's favourite is actually any Disney animated movies, he was as excited as his two sisters. Tak kisah la janji tengok wayang sebab sejak sampai kat Dubai ni belum penah tengok wayang lagi.

Before entering, as usual popcorn and also these Ayah and Along's favourite nachos with cream cheese and very spicy salsa sauce...hmm yummy...

When the movie finished at 9.30pm, we headed to Carrefour for our usual grocery shopping. It was very crowded with people...rimas. At 11.00pm we started queuing up to get a taxi home. It was the longest queue we had experienced here. We only managed to get a taxi at 1.30am!! We reached home at nearly 2.00 am. Thank God, next day was also a holiday.

p/s - What I could say about HSM 3 is that...if it wasn't for Along and Ain, hubby and I wouldn't have chosen to watch this. Hubby showed his boring face most of the time and sometimes almost fallen asleep...hi hi hi. It's not that the movie is not interesting at all but it's just not our taste at this age he he...But I have to admit that the choreography is excellent and the setting is just beautiful. I know I would have chosen this movie as my FIRST on the list movie some 18 or 19 years ago...That was the time when we were at PPP Shah Alam, when New Kids were still On The Block, when we went to watch a movie 'together-gether' with roommates at Subang Parade or REX KL or Cathay KL. Or with ehem...ehem...Now REX or Cathay or NKOTB is already a history.

Memang anak2 dara tu puas hati sangat. Exactly Moi, budak2 tu memang nampak tak kisah kena beratur lama sebab dah dapat kehendak hati. Diorang leka bermain sepanjang masa beratur, sambil tu siap bagi review HSM 3...he he he. Ibu Ayah diorang yg really keletihan, mengantuk.

sorry tertinggal pulak word TIME. "A great time to spent..."

Doll,
Watching DVD together at home is also a great way to spend quality time with the kids. As long as they are happy, why not. Usually we bring the kids to watch Disney movies. This is the first time tgk citer 'gediks' with them.

Memang syok sekali sekala bawa anak-anak. Masa kat Msia kekadang pegi berduaan je dgn bapaknya, anak-anak tinggal...syok gak.
