Up Is a Must Watch Movie

So, after about 3 hours from the previous post, I went to Gurney Plaza with Pui Yee to watch Up. We have to wait for about an hour or so at the bus stop waiting for the only direct public bus to Gurney as we don't want to change bus and another hour plus inside the bus before reaching the final destination. I took the opportunity inside the bus to take a short nap to rejuvenate myself. If not I might fall asleep in the movie.

UP poster by MyCine.

OK, about the movie. It is yet another brilliant product from Pixar as always. Quite a number of friends of mine said that the idea of a house being tied up with balloons and flies is not appealing. Another even said that the poster is not captivating enough. These people are really shallow as they judge things by its covers (you know who you are...XD). Up, like every other previous Pixar movies, is a heart-warming and touching film that put priority on the storyline and not star powers. It managed to blend comedy, action, adventure, drama, tragedy, and family perfectly and turned it into another gem. Highly recommended. Even its short film accompanied with the movie, Partly Cloudy, is a funny and loving take on baby making and friendship.

After the movie, we went to Manhattan Fish Market for lunch. I had Grilled Flaming Platter for One or something. It was delicious. Then, I bought a new shoes, New Balance. There are two colors for the same style the shoes that I bought but of different prices. The one that I initially like was RM 169.00 while the one that I bought, which I also like, was RM 99.00. Both was of same style and it's already best price. I'm no rich man son, so, of course I bought the cheaper one la.

My lunch...

On the ride back, I fell asleep yet again. Well, an hour of nap is better than nothing.
Nice?
