Exodus: Gods and Kings.

Friday, December 12, 2014

I was invited to a buffet dinner and a movie treat complete with popcorn and Pepsi.

The movie was educational and entertaining at the same time. Although Biblical, I believe that there are certain lessons here which have universal value.

We should treat every human being equally. It doesn't matter what is the color of our skins.

Efforts to enrich ourselves or to make our lives better should not be at the expense of fellow human beings. Unfortunately, examples of "beggar thy neighbour" are rather common and I am sure all of us have tales to tell.

Err, no free invitation for me. I'm thinking which dividend should I use to fund this Sunday movie ticket ... FCT or Wing Tai? ;)

Hi boonchin,

If I don't get to watch for free, I typically choose to go to the cinemas from Mondays to Wednesdays because the tickets are cheaper. ;p

Hi Mike,

Personally, I would choose to watch "The Hobbit" too, given a choice. LOL.

I have been waiting for all 3 parts to be aired so that I could go and buy the DVDs and watch all 3 parts at the same time. I did that for Lord of the Ring. I actually bought the collector's edition for that. ;p

Hi Endrene,

Yup. I think so too. Although the movie made me a little too thoughtful but it was a nice coincidence. :D

Hi Kwee,

Aiyoh! Shame on you for masquerading as a senior citizen to get concessionary tickets. ;p

Actually, it is shame on the staff at the ticketing booth for not checking your ID. ;)

I hardly pay to go to the movies these days because I find the tickets to be too expensive. Usually, if I do go, it is because I have free tickets or because friends or family ask me to go. Then, I would request that we watch on Mondays to Wednesdays when tickets are cheaper. LOL. ;p
