Oh I was definitely surprised this weekend by two things. 1) Sleeping in till 12pm?! which is pretty rare for me nowadays ever since stepping into adulthood 2) when the mister surprised me with a GV Gold Class movie date to watch the latest Ghibli movie, The Boy & The Heron as our monthiversary gift.
Without a doubt, long movies with a running time of over 2 hours is the best way to ensure you get your money’s worth at GV Gold Class and the movie was as such.
In summary, it’s the final (?) masterpiece by renowned Miyazaki Hayao and we were transported into the magical movie from the beginning. I would say that he beautifully brought us into the story weaving elements from the other Ghibli movies and different thought provoking themes about life, death, coping, acceptance and more.
The only thing I didn’t like is how the ending was more of an abrupt descend rather than a slow ending. I would liken the feeling of the ending as being jolted out of a dream, rather than ending off on a beautiful ending. However, perhaps that was his goal .. but my personal thoughts about it doesn’t change hahaa (for now).
Meanwhile in turn for his movie treat, it was mine to him for dinner with his favourite Arnold’s Chicken while I treated myself to a beef lasagna from this random Western stall at his place. Oh yes I also tried the egg tarts from So Good (finally), and they were not bad la. The biscuit version imo is better than the puff pastry one! Still, it doesn’t hold a candle to my favourite Tong Heng!
Finally to end off the night right, it was our weekly show catch up – JUJUTSU KAISEN, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, and me embarking on a new anime, The Masterful Cat Is Depressed Again Today – just for kicks since it just launched on Netflix!
P.s it was also today that I finished scheduling all my blog posts for my Taiwan trip yay!!
And that’s it for my lovely weekend before the work week begins! Thanks for reading and see ya for the usual post tomorrow 🙂
