17 Jan 2012 – or I want too!

Today decided to check out the new I12 Mall@Katong. The number of the building is 112 but the way it is projected it looks like I want too! Nice to be in a brand new GV cinema with only 5 people, including me. Yeah, finally a cinema in walking distance, app 10mins walk or 3 bus-stops!

There is a water feature outside of the Food Republic food court on the top floor. Would love to bring my grandchildren here, like the SIN Zoo with a fantastic water playground there, even I am tempted to be in the water, especially with the hot hot hot days back.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows**a new action-packed adventure in this sequel that follows the world’s most famous detective, Sherlock Holmes, and his long-time trusted associate, Dr. Watson. The duo take on their arch-nemesis, the criminal genius Moriarty, with the help of Holmes’ older brother Mycroft and a fortune-teller called Sim.

My ratings are partial as action movies are not for me. Used to enjoy the old B/W Sherlock Holmes on TV but this Hollywood production has way tooooo much violence and had to close the eyes most of the time!

Condolences to Gerald, Greta and their families for the passing of their mother, auntie Pearl. May she RIP now after nearly 3 months of life-support in the ICU. Yesterday she was cremated@Mandai Crematorium where my parents are also located. Said my goodbye to auntie Pearl and paid a visit to my parents’ niche. It was a hot day and the walking out to the main road to catch the bus in the mid afternoon heat was rather overwhelming after a funeral.

  1. It’s amazing that I go to Singapore often and yet on seeing your blog, I realize there’re so many places I haven’t been. It’s a luxury to be in the cinema with hardly anybody. This has only happened to me during SARS. I’m with you on the new Sherlock Holmes movies. Don’t like either one. It’s indeed a relief for Auntie Pearl. May she RIP.

  2. Hey Henrietta, the next time you are in SIN, let me be your guide, ie if you do not mind walking in the heat!

    Did you also see the Sherlock Homes movies? Well at least I got to sit in a new cinema even though my eyes were closed most of the movie 🙂

    Condolences to your family too for auntie Pearl’s passing. May she now RIP.

    • I actually like and am proud to show SIN off to visitors, but living and working here is another story! If only I could lose weight, I would not mind walking here all day, but it is the headache with this kind of heat and humidity that really gets to you 🙁

      Did not watch the first SH movie, thus did not know what to expect for this one. Anyway for S$4/senior citizen deal, it was just another experience to watch evil vs good with the fairy-tale ending!! I like the big screen and the comfortable chairs in these smaller cinemas.

  3. Thanks for your kind offer. I don’t mind walking in the heat at all. I would hope that it would help me lose weight more quickly – the sauna effect, lol! I have seen both Sherlock Holmes movies. Didn’t like the first one. Had free tickets for the second one, so went anyway despite knowing I probably wouldn’t like it 🙂
