Went to Eastwood last night to claim the 2 "Dalaw" tickets that I won from Eastwood Cinema! =] Original plan for that day was just hangout at Gateway but just in time, I received the tweet of @eastwoodmall on twitter about the winners that includes my username!1st time ever! and is it just coincidental or what? coz we were supposed to watch the day before but then it was cancelled. *badtrip* But anywayyyy, God gave me an answer! =] They're giving away 200+ pairs of tix so I don't consider myself that super lucky. hoho.
So I first went to Gateway to meet up with Cheyz then we decided to go to Cubao Expo to kill time coz we still have to wait till 4pm for the claiming of tix. This would be my first time to go there and only a few stores were open. =/
The Reading Room - the only store, among those open, that caught our attention. I think I've saw them before somewhere in the internet. They sell different stuffs, ranging from accessories, some clothes and other unique finds.
some of the notebooks that they sell. They also have nice pens and some cute and unique rings (starting at 20php)
a lot of post-its and notepads in various shapes and sizes can also be found there.
they're also a reseller of "Relax, puso lang yan, malayo sa bituka" planners.
After strolling around the vicinity, we then went to Eastwood afterwards. We arrived around 4.30pm and the next showtime is still at 6.10pm so Bowling time! again. =] Paeng's Eastwood Bowl and Billiards Room is just in front of the city walk cinema, same level.
I think they have around 20 lanes and a number of billiard tables. They also have a room for the smokers and a snack bar inside.The rates are: 100php(opening-5pm)/120php(5pm onwards)/130(weekends/holidays) and 30php for the shoe rental. You don't leave your shoes on the counter unlike in MOA.
I won again! haha! a little more practice makaka-100 din ako.! =]
IMO, I prefer the facilities in moa (comfier seats, lightings, etc.) but nonetheless, we still had fun! =] I heard they do disco nights and also have glow-in-the-dark bowling balls and lanes but too bad we didn't get to experience it coz we're there too early.
We went in around 6pm and movie ended around 8pm. This is my first time watching at Eastwood city walk cinema and obviously it looks good. They have a nice carpeted lobby with some comfy sofas where you can sit around while waiting for the movies. A number of food stalls are also located near it. The chairs inside the cinema were also nice, there's enough space and the back of the chair can be moved/pushed if you need to stretch a bit. Regarding the movie, (*spoilers?*) "Dalaw" has a twist on it's storyline, coz surely you won't correctly get at first the real deal regarding the spirit haunting them. And the ending was a bit disappointing, for us though. It's also a horror/suspense movie with a bit of comedy (hint: Gina Pareño's lines) . haha! As for me, being a fan of asian horror movies, the "gulat" factor is 6/10 or 5, I base this rate on how often I avoid looking directly on the screen. hehe!
a statue or a man in costume? =]
We're back on Cubao around 8.30pm, we passed by Cubao Expo again hoping the other stores are now open. But we arrived on people hanging out in the restaurant/bars inside the vicinity and all the stores closed. ok. in short "inuman time" in the place and "uwian time" na for us. hehe..I'll be going back there next time for sure.
