Very First Movie

Mama (jea's grandmom) wants to see how jea would react on watching movie, she has never been in a movie house and we dont know if she's ready. She's only 1 and 11months. We first planned to take her to spiderman 3 movie, but we are glad we didnt, she would have cried the whole time with the loud sound effects and horrifying characters. The next movie would be Shrek 3, and we thought it would be perfect, its like cartoons only in the big screen. Weeks before we already introduced her to Shrek by buying Mcdo happy meal toys. We got her Shrek and Fiona charcter toys, and she liked it so much, so we thought she is ready.

Its monday and our planned first screening for jea. We went to watch in shangri-la, a whopping P170 per ticket, she should like it coz it would be just a waste if she would cry and force us to leave the movie. We have imagined her that as soon as she enter the movies she would say...

Mommy......mumu!!!!Light...light... turn on light....Pleaseeeeee!!!

And we were right, as soon as we entered the door she said exactly what we thought she would say. On the way to the mall I already explained to her the it will be dark, and she should not be afraid, that there is no such thing as "mumu".

Going to our seats was no problem, there was 3 seats one for each of us, Mama, Mommy(Me) and Jea. At first she liked it and played with her seat as it goes down when she pushed and automatically folds up as she released it. But when the lights were turned off, she also automatically reached for me and sit on my lap. If only we could buy only 2 tickets since we know that this would happen....

We didnt buy any snacks no popcorn nor drinks, since we know that this could be troublesome. We dont know if she would throw the popcorn to others or just poured it to herself. Instead we opted to take snacks before the movies. We ate at wham burger and she only ate fries. It was funny that she liked it so much that she ate fries one after the other even if its still hot. Every bite, she would say hot!!! but continued on chewing them, dipping it in too many ketchup before taking another bite.

When the movie started, our adventure also started, we would watch her every move and every reaction, we like to know if she will like it or get scared. We would like to see if she can already understand or at least react on the scenes. Yes, she may be too young to understand, but jea surprise us in so many things. Theres a lot of things that she can do that baby her age still cannot. She's so advanced that mama even thinks she's gifted. And surprised us she did!!! She understands, and react on every scene, when the villain came she would ber scared, when the scene is funny she woulf laugh. At first it was ok, she enjoyed it but after 15mins she said "finished" pointing to the direction out. Maybe she got bored, maybe she got scared, or maybe she just doesnt like the big green thing on the screen. And she did that every 5mins. We tried to convice her to wait and it will be over soon, and the smart and nice girl she is she would say "opo", "ok", "wait jea". and so finally after every "finished?" the movie ended. But the fun didnt stop there.

Since it was her first time to watch a movie, I took pictures to document the event. When we went out to the lobby I asked her to pose beside the poster of shrek and she did. Then as we go down the stairs I took another picture, after her 3 shot I told her that we are ready to go, and she wasnt!!!? She wanted more shots, and she posed, she decides on her pose, and everybody was amazed and how good she posed, she know what to do, what angle would be good for her, some of the people are already looking at her and she didnt mind. She just posed, smiled, and looked pretty. That's all she wanted.

Its not the movie that she liked its just the photoshoot. I can already imagine what her dreams would be. I think she's going to be a model.... but then again...there is a lot of other things that she is good at...

Ill post the pictures some other day......
