Movie Time

THE movie of the year is without a doubt Avengers: Endgame. I mean, it's the final chapter of phase 1 of MCU (or 1 away from the final chapter, which as everyone knows, is the best part with all the fightings and all the happenings).


So we decided to go and watch it (of course!).

Since the movie is about 3 hours long, I wanted to buy the premiere version. Better seats. But much to my surprise, the premiere seats were all sold out. I mean, for a 10.45 AM show. I mean, come on people, don't you have to go to work? And not only that, but it was sold out for the next few days until the end of the month. For all of the showings in Premiere.

I mean, I knew this movie would be popular, but this popular? Uhm.. yeah, I didn't expect it.

Whacha lookin' at?

Anyway, we finally decided to just watch it on the regular screen.

Waiting for the theater to open

Oh boy, it's a loooooongggga movie. Thankfully I knew about it beforehand, so I limit the kids' food and fluid intake. Even that, the kid needs washroom 5 minutes before the end credit. Thankfully she could hold it until the end credit rolls, and we were out of the door. 

We're in. Start the movie!

All in all, quite a fun time with the kids. I thought the flow was a bit too slow in the middle, but I guess you need time to build up to the climax. But then again, it might be because I was in constant fear that my kids would need washroom, so I wished the story would just "get on with it" already. 



Adventure Park - Lenmarc Mall, Surabaya, Indonesia

Starting from the week before Easter until after Ramadhan, Lenmarc opens up an Adventure Park. This is basically a pop up play area for kids. They have trampolines, water roller (kinda like an inflatable cylinder where kids can climb to the inside and roll the cylinder around), a pin screen area, and a tubing area (down toward a pool of ball), and a separate ball pool so the kids don't get hit by the tuber, I guess. Since the price is decent (IDR 30K for 45 minutes + 15K for parent), we decided to bring the kids there to burn off their energy (school's out since the 6th graders are having their finals).

The highlight of the park was definitely the tubing area. It's so much fun and even the littlest one was excited about it.

Waiting for turns...

See that smile?

Wheeee!

Tubing is fun!

The ball pool is also fun.

Come jump into the pool!

Trampoline

Jump!

This is fun!

Look at me!

Fun day! 45 minutes turned out to be just enough for the kids. It's friendlier on your wallet/purse and the kids won't overtire.
