Alice In Lala-Land.

On the River Cruise, last week

Went to watch 'Alice in Wonderland' last night with my adopted son in the city. Watched the 10.50 pm show and I made the mistake of parking my car quite far from the cinema. Meaning, we had to walk far after midnight, groggy with sleep. Do not ask about the drive home.

The movie was in 3D, thus the hefty admission fee and was rather good. I think I'll prefer to watch Alice again, than Avatar, mainly because Mr Carol's movie adaptation was more... funny. But I found the original book boring though.... (sorry to all the puritans out there).

But this entry is not about a movie review. I am glad that my son had the opportunity to watch his (and also my) first 3D movie before he returns back to his parents tomorrow evening (by aeroplane). It is something that he will remember and cherish when I am no longer by his side.

He is a good boy. Easily distracted and very very shy. I know he didn't follow all my advice fully, thus creating a few major disasters in his life recently, but it is enough that he shows respect and love towards me. *sniff*

So I wish him good luck for his future endeavors. And rest assured that his Teacher is always here for support (though unbelievably far away).

Nice picture, pensive look and looks like a quiet guy. Sounds like you care a lot about your adopted son and you had a good time with him on his visit. I have never seen 3D movies.

Alice does look good. My eldest son really enjoyed Avatar (against expectations) and has got us all wanting to see it now!

Glad you had a good time - I am sure you will have had a very positive effect on this guy's life, especially if not following your advice turned out bad!

Ahhh.. the dragon has a heart, apparently! ;P

TechnoBabe; Thanks. He is really a quiet guy. You should go and watch a 3D movie once to know what the hype is all about.

Shadowthorne said...

Rock Chef; I do have this ability to predict disasters if somebody close to me doesn't follow my specific orders. Usually in terms of failing their grades, relationships etc.

I'm one man-witch to you :)

Shadowthorne said...

brocasarea; You are waiting till 11th March?!

Shadowthorne said...

Aizan; Go and watch Dragon Heart, dear. :P

This is so sweet, Shadow. How far away is he?



Shadowthorne said...

SLC; He is across the South China Sea. The other half of Malaysia is on Borneo Island.

I watched my first 3D movie when I was a little kid, and I remember wondering 'What's so "3D" about this?!'.

I'd just love to watch Alice though. Hope its won't make me feel indifferent, like Avatar did.

et; I am not so excited to watch Avatar again. Go watch Alice!!
