What's for this Weekend?

Hubby and I got invited to try Shangri-la Plaza mall's latest movie offering—in 3D format—last night, with the screening of Alice in Wonderland. Thanks to Tita Joy Buensalido and her staff Maia Melencio for the tickets :D

We got one each of our favorite popcorn flavors: sour cream and cheese :D

We got our goggles at the entrance. Yay, first dibs on the 3D glasses!

I must say, these goggles fit really well on us. No headaches and tightness here!
The last time we watched a 3D movie was Avatar, and I kept taking them off because they hurt.

As for the movie... Well, I think Tim Burton can do no wrong. Some of the casts are alumni of Tim Burton films, like Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter. Both of them portrayed their roles very well, as expected. I also like how they made this movie into a "part two" of the novel. I felt like I was "Alice," as I revisited my childhood memories (of the book and the Disney cartoon movie) with the character.

I tried looking for photos online, but couldn't borrow any, even from :( But for those who appreciate visuals and computer graphics, this movie is for you. It was a visual feast, indeed! And I love the "costume" dresses of Alice (actress Mia). If I were to get married all over again, I would have that red dress made into one—in a longer version. Sigh! The other blue dresses were nice as well. You'll know what I am referring to, once you've watched it ;)

For those who haven't seen the trailer, watch this:

I found it adorable that the mall had a tie-up with the FADAL group.
Here are some of the ladies and gents who came in their "Alice in Wonderland costumes":

I just had to take a photo of this bag. He used all his "retazo" and made it into a bag. See that rectangular frame?
It's a solar panel, and he uses it to charge his digital camera. How cool is that? :)

So, this weekend, I suggest you head out to the malls and get yourself tickets to Alice in Wonderland—in 3D and at Shangri-la Plaza Mall, if you can :)

Plus, the weekend isn't complete with these sale alerts:
MYTH at Greenbelt 5 is on sale, starting today—at 50% off!
