Parking Trinoma

Hmmmm... I've noticed this weekend I have been hopping at different Ayala Malls. Anyway, we went to Trinoma to watch the much anticipated Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Though originally we though watching it in Imax would be better, but we decided not too. We found out that the 3d scenes were just 10 minutes, so might as well watch it on regular cinema.

Movie: HP and the Half Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
This is the sixth installment of this highly successful franchise. Kahit na sobrang bashed ng mga avid fans ng books ang HP films, they still watch it. For the record, I just read Sorcorere's Stone from cover to cover, but after the movie adaptation, I opted not to read the rest of the series anymore. I am one of the many that would say "Bakit ko pa babasahin yan, eh ipapalabas din naman sa sinehan."

Anyway, not to give you much spoilers (actually namatay si Dumbledore), the movie just felt alright. The actors really grew into their roles. I was very surprised at how Emma Watson matured. She's really beautiful.

The film felt like it was a teen movie set in a wizzrd school. May love story and all.

As far as notable performances, Professor Horace was really great!!! Tom Felton as Draco Malfoy was also noticeable, well because his character plays a pivotal role in the book.

The action scenes were very few. And that maybe one of the disappointing things in the movie. Well, after everyone watched Transformers, they're expecting the same with this one.
I would give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

My personal favorite would still be Prisoner of Azkaban.

Krokodile Grill - Trinoma

After the movie we had dinner at Krokodile Dinner. Though the main highlight of the dinner would be the dramatic events unfolding the del Mundo family, the food was equally exciting.

I would highly recomment the following:
  1. Baked Tahong
  2. Crispy Knuckles
  3. Barbeque Squid
The restaurant was small as compared to other branches but it just sufficed the target people coming in. We were not on the waiting list and they immediately found out seats.

Here are the rest of the pictures over the weekend.
