Madamoiselle & Holi-Day 5

Tired!!!!.... 5 days of holiday, and all I can say is......'TIRED'. I thought, I took this holiday for a relaxing time at home, doing nothing, just surfing and blog-hoping, doing my own thingy and occupied myself with boredom. But's always something to do...something happening. can't plan what you wanna do with it. There's always something coming through within. hmmm....

Anyway last nite, I slept late. While everyone else were asleep, me and my youngest bro ~ 'Juan' stayed up till 2.30 am, Surfing in the dark on each laptops, pigging out with the left over cake, slump off at the couch, making soft quite dumb jokes and trying not to make too much noise of laughter, over my bro's poisonous farts and watching the ol' toons of "South Park". Pathetic! hehehe...

Then this morning , however, planned on waking up late but was awoken by the noisiness of the nieces and siblings, all had awoken by 8.30 am. The nieces were excited as they got ready for an early splash at the swimming pool while the siblings waited for the next queue of "Who's gonna get to the bathroom first?". By 10.30 am, everyone were ready, the kids were back from the pool, all cleaned up and felt the excruciating pain of hunger. No breakfast yet so far so went to the foodcourt and had a heavy brunch. It's been quite a while that i had not been to the mall so I was surprise with the blooming of mini shops near the foodcourt and made few mini purchases that ran my purse dry. We decided to browse a few more shops and then decided to watch the movie with the nieces. The play was Alvin & the Chipmunks and the seats were almost full. The only seats left were 3 rows upfront and we hate sitting too near the screen so decided to book at the Kiulap mall instead for a 2pm show. Since it was midday, we got back to the room and left half an hour earlier from showtime to Kiulap cineplex. We were on the fifth row from the back meaning only a quarter of the room were filled.

As for the movie, it was fun for the kids, and I missed watching the cartoon long time ago. It was indeed a childhood flashback, even though it was an animated chipmunk [which is so cute] but their voice was so like the chipmunk I knew so many years ago. Theadore was the cutest, so bubbly and the sweetest lil' thing. Though the movie was pretty much okay, it brought back the nostalgic moments of the earlier toons we had during our era of childhood. I just love their rhythmic voices and their songs. Overall verdict for this movie is 8 out of 10 coz it's my ol' time favourite cartoon.

Synopsis of the movie:

Based on the 1980s cartoon series about a music group of chipmunks comprised of mischievous group leader Alvin (Ross Bagdasarian Jr.); the tall and quiet Simon (Matthew Gray Gubler); and chubby, impressionable Theodore (Jesse McCartney). The three chipmunk brothers are adopted by a songwriter named Dave (Jason Lee) and with his help, the Chipmunks skyrocket to musical fame. However, in comes scheming greedy agent Ian (David Cross). He tries to lure the Chipmunks away from their concerned father figure, Dave, with the promise of fun, fortune and fame. Will they fall for Ian's villainous plans or stay loyal to trusty Dave?

Okay, Till then its 17 days of hiatus. Time is ticking.....
