When Promotion Backfired

Before I went to play my escape room adventure, I went to a mall in the City to meet a couple of my friends. Their customer was having a grand opening for one of the most famous cheesecake from Japan. One of them was the graphic designer and the other one was the MC for the day. It was April 8th. The mall opens at 10 A.M which was why I wanted to go there early and I was aiming to arrive around 9 A.M but I overshot it and I arrived at 10 because of the super friendly traffic. When I arrived I went to the floor which was told by my friend the shop were. As I walk toward the shop I can see a bunch of people queuing already not only in front of the shop but also on the side of another shop – which was on renovation. I was about to say hello to my friend but I can see they were busy with some customers so I backed out a little. I thought the queue was just that much, but hell, I WAS WRONG. The queue was very long and took up space around the parking lot of the basement mall. I followed my friend around and helped out with anything that I can, obviously I was mistaken as a customer a couple times because I was unofficially helping. When I had a chance to chat with one of my friend, she said they have been queuing since 6 A.M. unbelievable. Well they did promoted it on social media and it seems a lot of food blogger mentioned it so it was like thousands of people were queuing.

Rampage

I have been rewinding on old movies while trying to take a break on series (I have been watching the flash from season 1 through 3, until the last episode they had last week). It is an accumulation of a few days worth but I don’t see any particularly big about these movies and to me I feel that they’re quite light in terms of story. You may have already seen these movie, or maybe not, and there is a chance you do not like the genre at all, but I will review and give it some numbers anyways for the sake of it. Some of them have a bad reviews on the critics but it is an enjoyable light movies, the kind that you can just really chill and think of nothing.

Classic with Modern Touch

I have finally managed to force myself to watch a 4D without 3d experience ( I think it’ll make me dizzy), even the 4D actually made me a little off. Since there was not any action movie that I really wish to see on 4D, I decided to watch an old but fresh movie, Beauty and The Beast. To be quite honest I have never watched the animation of that classic disney princess story, so I don’t think I can compare as much, but I did saw the similarities that people posted from the cartoon and the real human played movie. I do, somewhat know the story, it has been a long time since I read classic disney princesses stories. I probably heard it from when I was in elementary school.

Stronger Together

I have been spending these couple of days with some friends, I surely picked up a thing or two about other people characteristic but since I want to focus on movie I shall continue  on what I just watched. I was tired and lazy to get out of my bed and I decided to make a use of my free time. I watched X-Men Apocalypse just now. I checked the score on some sources, IMDB gave 7.1/10 whereas rotten tomato and metacritic gave this movie a rather disappointing scores.

Light VS Dark

I rewatched Star Wars movie from Episode I to VII. Yes I watched it chronologically, not based on what year it was released. I wanted to try to understand what was Lucas Film trying to achieve. In this particular section I would focus more on the first three episodes, which was called prequel from the original Star Wars movie. When I first watched Star Wars I was not very familiar with it – I’m not westeners and I do not live in the western country. It was quite hard for me to grasp, but I did like it enough. I decided to spend more time in understanding the movie after I watched Star Wars The Force Awaken (VII) and Rogue One.
