Prior to becoming a mother, I was regular to the cinemas. I watch movie almost weekly. Some weeks I watch 2 movies some weeks I skip. But usually I dash to cinema regularly.
Partly because my sister was with GSC and we did enjoy some perks in terms of previews, free tickets and etc. After Manfred, I still patron cinemas regularly but opt for midnight show. My mum was kind enough to take Manfred at night and next morning so I could go movie and sleep in the next morning.
But things changed after Jude. It’s really taxing to ask my mum take both if them during day or night. Despite having a helper, I still feel guilty for leaving them to my parents. After my dad’s health problem, i almost haven’t been to cinemas for months… Whereby hub still go on every Wednesday night at melaka. Why not? He was out station I melaka and Wednesday tickets is so cheap.
Lately I been to cinema once to watch resident evil 3D at signature. Hub complained lousy popcorn, bad storyline etc. But I came out feeling satisfied. Cause I get sometime to really sit and enjoy movie, popcorn and fizzy drinks.. So I told hub, our expectation differs now. I am happy so long it entertains me, gives me time to fully enjoy.. He on the other hand, because he goes regularly so he tend to compare and complained. So I told him, next time when we two go to movie together, please tell me that :”dear, I am so happy and enjoyed that we can go movie together!” period. Hello, some white lies doesn’t kill, at least a slightly mental housewife like me would be beaming with joy to know her hub happy to spend time with her despite lousy movie mar.
What about you? have your visit to cinema changed after no1 or no2 or 3,4,5 come along?
