Haven’t been to the movies in a long long while. Not that I’ve become a non-movie goer now but, no film, local or foreign, has as yet, lured me into parting with my hard-earned pesos. See, the prices they charge nowadays are cut-throats. Worse, those Reserved Seatings doesn’t give you the luxury of a second viewing or — a good cinema catnap. Can’t even remember my last affair with the big screen.
And now this. An opportunity to go into one. To march on a red carpet, to view one of the most exciting flicks this year, The Bourne Legacy, in one of the most exclusive theaters in town, Resorts World. REPEAT –Jason Bourne, red-carpet Asian premiere, Newport Mall, Resorts World. Waw. I really must’ve done something good in my past life. Now how did I made the killing? Destiny my friends, destiny.
As I was activating my monotonous daily routine the other day, ABS-CBN News Anchor Karen Davila’s tweet caught my eye: “I have ONE #BourneLegacy Premiere Night Ticket Aug 5! Raffle Q: In Robert Ludlum’s book, what was Jason Bourne’s original mission? GO!” Dios mio, I lost my 20/20 vision reading Ludlum’s novels, now I can’t allow this one to pass without exacting my revenge! And yes, answered correctly I did. “To waste Carlos the Jackal.”
The next day I hurried down DZMM studio to meet up with Karen Davila and to get my hands on the most coveted premiere ticket. Truth is, a face-to-face with the dazzling/popular anchorwoman is much more exciting than a red-carpet premiere of anything. So thank you Jason Bourne and Carlos the Jackal for giving me the good chance to see Karen. And tomorrow, off to Resorts World I go. However, this is one case I can not RELAX AND WATCH A MOVIE because right now there’s this quirky feeling: the place will be crawling with celebs, hotshots, big cheeses and mahatmas. It’s making me crazy wondering who will be in seat no. A45 and A47!
Comfort this average joe, somebody pls.
