Pre-Premiere Screening of "District 9": A Possible Chance for a Romantic Night for Two?

Mommy stumbled upon the "District 9" advertisement of Nuffnang from a fellow mummy's blog. Clicking on the ad led Mommy to Nuffnang's blog about the premiere screening of "District 9" on 13th August 2009. In the Nuffnang blog post, it was mentioned that Nuffnang Glitterati bloggers (hehehe...Mommy is!) can stand a chance to win a pair (note this word - meaning you can take your spouse with you!) of District 9 movie tickets before the premiere screening (i.e., on 12th August 2009, 9 pm, at the Cathay Cineplex Damansara) by merely leaving a slogan at the comments section. One can stand an even better chance if one blogs about it!

By the way, if you haven't known what "District 9" is all about, then check out the movie's synopsis in Nuffnang's blog and this trailer:

So Mommy thought why not Mommy make a try for it. After all, it has already been ages since Papa and Mommy last go to the cinema to watch a movie - more so after Juan Or was born. Of course, at Juan Or's age of 1 year 2+ months old, it is still not possible to bring Juan Or along to the cinema because he won't be able to withstand sitting still on the cinema's cushioned chair 'watching' a movie for about 2 hours! Mommy can imagine Juan Or fretting and crying all the way even right before the movie starts!

Another alternative if Papa and Mommy really, really want to go for a movie is by taking leave from work so that Papa and Mommy can watch movie in peace while Juan Or is at the babysitter's place. However, this option is not possible now because Papa has just joined a new company, so is not allowed to take leave during the probation period.

But then to spend money to purposely buy movie tickets to watch after office hours while Juan Or is being cared for by Grandma is not a worthwhile option because both Papa and Mommy are tired out after all in a day's work, plus having to rush to the cinema after coming back home, take bath and eat dinner. But if the movie tickets are given out free, then it's worth considering to rush to the cinema after coming back from work! Hehehehe!

By the way, if Mommy gets to win this, it will be good for some humble romantic enjoyment with Papa before Mommy's paper-marking exodus begins on 14th August! Why is that? Because the final exam papers of the subject that Mommy lectures on will only be in on that date. So Mommy will have to bring final exam papers home to mark. And mind you, there's 100+ of exam papers to mark!
