Movie outing with mom

I am not really into movies nowadays, but for the sake of bonding with my friends or family, once in a while I will go watch a movie with them. I usually choose a movie with Chinese Language or dialects when watching movie with my mom. Today (Wednesday) we chose the Chinese Comedy Movie, Lucky Boy, which is showing at 9.25pm at Filmgarde.

Before the movie, we went to the Food Court to have our dinner. This is what I had. Teriyaki Chicken with rice, chawanmushi and default soup at S$6.00. My mom had Mee Pok.

I like the chawanmushi a lot because it is my favourite but the Teriyaki Chicken was a bit dry and hard. I did not finish the chicken.

After dinner, we went for a walk in the Shopping Centre before going for the movie at 9.25pm.
This is synopsis of the movie from the Internet:

LUCKY BOY chronicles several decades of the lives of Lin Yu (Wang Weiliang), his family, friends and Qingqing (Venus Wong) – the girl whom he falls in love with in primary school and continues pinning for throughout his tumultuous and eventful life. Lin Yu is always one step behind others and surrounded by misfortune… Will Lin Yu, the destined “unlucky” boy, be able to change his fate?

The movie was so so only but still it is not too bad to watch a movie once in a while to pass time and for bonding. There is something funny which happened after the movie. We were the first to exit the cinema after the movie and we walked the wrong way, everyone behind us followed us and after realizing that it was the wrong way, everybody laughed. Quite funny.

That brings an end to my movie outing with my mom.

Frankly speaking, sometimes I think to myself, I am afraid to spend too much time with my mom because I am very afraid that if one day she is no longer with us, I will miss the times I spent with her, missing someone who is no longer around is painful and miserable.

Nice movie date with your mom. I wish I could do that with my mom.

Cherish the time with her, Libby. Some day they may gone but the memories stay in your heart.

Oh no, please don't think like that. Please spend more time with your mother when you can. When her time is here, you will be able to look back at all the times you spend with her to remember her by and be happy for her. Don't hold yourself back now and deprive yourself of spending time with her. If you do that now, it will be like you purposely make it as if she is no longer with you by avoiding her and so you will be bringing pain and misery to yourself earlier. A self-fulling prophecy.

I always watch a movie every weekend so that it could hopefully cut off our minds from the earlier week's stress at office.
I want to advise you that you should spend more time with your mother and not worry that you will miss her someday. Seeing her more or less will not reduce our thoughts of missing our loved ones later. My sister who had lived in England for a long time regretted that she could not see my parents so much until fate got her retrenched from her job and she decided that she had enough of the wet weather in England. She moved back to KL and spent quality time to help both my ailing parents.

Be strong and brave to face all the natural process of our journey of life as nothing is permanent.

but then again if you don't spend much time with her, you will regret it forever. :-) Have a good week ahead Libby!

Hi Libby, it is better to spend more quality time with someone you love and appreciate than regretting later that you have not spent enough time after your loved one is longer with you. Those good times will always remain in loving memory that no one can take away.

yea, missing someone dearly is so painful....but what can we do? we can't be so cold, especially mum who has shower u with much love and care since young.

On the contrary, you should spend time with your mum because if you don't, you may regret it one day. I too feel sad thinking into the future how sad I would be when the time comes for my parents to leave. I suppose I should not think about it and enjoy them while they are still around.
