Friday night proved to be a busy night for me and Sweetie since we had at least 6 hours to kill. The reason? Miguel's prom. To keep me from hovering and give Miguel some space to enjoy the special evening we just dropped him off at the hotel and left. (He doesn't know though that I had my head out of the window watching him till he got inside the hotel. Haha.).

So we went to Alabang Town Center to have some of my favorite spaghetti, do some window shopping, get some Serenitea and watch Tangled in 3D. I grumbled a bit about watching the movie in 3D because it's about two times more expensive and 3D glasses usually give me a headache (can't live without my eyeglasses so imagine the discomfort of putting on another pair on top of my regular one). Anyway, it was the only movie I was interested to watch and at least we got a discount thanks to the Citibank movie promo.

And... it was worth every peso spent.

The last time I enjoyed watching a Disney film was during the Little Mermaid, Aladdin and Lion King era. I've lost count on how many times I've watched those movies. I am looking forward to getting a DVD copy of Tangled when it comes out because it's definitely another magical movie produced by Disney. I could not help but remember The Little Mermaid since Ariel and Rapunzel seem to be in the same boat. My favorite character though is Maximus, the horse. The horse who acts like a dog! Maximus was both hilarious and adorable, he makes me want to watch Tangled again this weekend.  Take a look, here's a clip from the movie  -

I also took note of the fact that instead of using usual weapons - guns, arrows etc. - the main weapon of choice in the movie was a frying pan! I should keep a frying pan in key places at home!

I couldn't get enough of Tangled so the day after watching the movie I ended up watching a ton of Tangled videos from the Disney Animation Youtube channel. Watch the movie and be prepared to laugh for an hour and a half. (This movie is for kids and the young at heart and not grumpy ol' people... just saying hehe).


  1. Hi Aileen, hmmm, im definitely going to watch this as well, sounds like fun, i think it did to Disney what Shriek did to Dreamworks.

  2. I still loved the film and believe it's a great addition to Disney's animated classics. Lastly, let me just add a big "Yeah!" to the film's final moments when Flynn, back in narrator mode, reveals that it was several years before he and Rapunzel got married. A much better message for children than the more usual we-saw-each-other-twice-before-tying-the-knot which seems almost de rigueur in so many fairy tales.
