Movie at NEX

Posted by Dawn at Friday, September 07, 2012

Given the September School Holidays, I decided to bring the children out for a movie. Always wanted to catch with them the show, "Brave" as I heard it's a good show. We meant to catch the afternoon show but it was all sold out. So we spent about 4 hours in the NEX shopping centre waiting for the next time slot at 4 pm as we didnt want to disappoint the children. You might think what to do with 2 children for 4 hours in a shopping centre.

Well, we first went to Sushi Tei for lunch. We thought going to a restaurant would probably waste more time as we wait for them to serve us and so its also more relaxing since we have all the time now. But surprisingly, the service was so fast! Oh well.. Going to Sushi Tei, I would always order their sashimi salad. I love it! You feel so good eating it. It's like the chef putting in some "feel-good" hormones in it.

Also ordered this fried cuttlefish for sides.

The children were all very excited and happy that day as they knew they were going to watch a movie and have popcorns!

After lunch, we went to take a look at the Gundam Exhibition. I love all these models..And of course, Caleb loved it!

Then we brought them to the rooftop playground for a while before crashing at the Library just next to the playground. I love just chilling out at the library as I get to catch up on my magazines and because I have a varied interest, I would borrow anything from interior design, to fashion, to food, to cycling etc...One big pile of magazines for me to devour for few hours.

The children also borrowed some books before they crashed on the floor. I actually wanted them to sleep as I didnt want them to sleep during the movie which will be a waste.

There was a librarian that came up to me and mentioned that the children should not be sleeping here. Then she said, "Just to let you know because someone highlighted it to me. So I just need to tell you." Then I answered back and said," So you rather they are awake and running about or making noise, then to sleep?" (I said this to her because the library was VERY noisy throughout the whole time. There were so many students just sitting on the floor in groups and talking like nobody's business and the librarian did not do anything about it. And here is the librarian coming up to me about my children sleeping just because a member of the public was being a busybody and poking into stuff like that to the librarian that she had to come up to tell me. Anyway, she kept stressing that she is just informing me. So I took it that I could continue letting them sleep. I figured, they needed the rest to be fresh later for the show.

Oh well, anyway, they did and they enjoyed the movie as I did too!

Left the shopping centre a survivor as we survived for so many hours with 2 toddlers! *Patpat on my back!*
