What’s in your bag?

I was surfing the other day and came across the what’s in your bag meme from Flickr. It was interesting to see what people are lugging around in their daily packs – a bit of voyeurism I guess. So, Gabriel and I took out the contents of our bags and photographed the lot.

Pretty basic things in my bag: Reading material borrowed from the library, magnetic clip-on sunnies, earphones, lip balm, pen, comb, USB cable for PDA, keys, Pocket PC with case, LG camera phone with case, wallet (with card, cash and some change), stuff for those times of the month, tissue, hair clips and camera of course!

Gabriel’s daily pack: Reebok backpack with brolly on top, various brochures/vouchers, Finding Nemo OST borrowed from the library, spare battery, sunnies with case, blue mesh bag from Suga, screwdriver with some screws, receipts, medicines, hand lotion, folder and plastic envelope to hold important documents with cap and gloves on top, PDA in case, phone charger, ear buds for PDA, gum and snack bar, various pens/pencil/eraser, USB cable for PDA, old Constantine ticket, movie vouchers, packet of cotton buds/tips, black drawing book and small notepad for ideas/lists. Not in the photo are his keys, purse, wallet and Sony Ericsson camera phone. Click photo to view full size.

How about you, what’s in your bag?

Yesterday was another Tuesday and that meant it was movie night again! We watched 20th Century Fox’s new 3D Animated Feature Robots voiced by actors Robin Williams and Ewan McGregor, to name a few.

We were aiming for the 7:30 pm showing at the Jam Factory. It’s a good thing that it was after 6 pm as it was easier to find a free parking space along Chapel St after that time. The shops close early here, remember?

We got the car parked at around 7:15 pm and speed-walked our way to the cinemas. The Village Cinema at the Jam Factory assigns the customer a fixed seat so if you buy your ticket late, you’re going to be left with very crappy seats. And that’s what happened. The only available seats left were for the first and second rows (too close to the screen) so we opted to take the 8:40 pm show instead.

It was a good thing that Borders close shop at 11 pm so we got to hang out there while we wait for the next showing. Anyway, there were books I wanted to read.

Unlike the last time, the price of the ticket was $6 each. It was $1 more expensive than last time but it was still $6 well spent as the movie was absolutely great! For starters, it was hilarious. I liked the story and I certainly liked the quality of the animation, effects and 3D-ness (if there is such a word). Dare I say it? I think I loved this more than the Incredibles.

I guess this post is sort of a review so it wouldn’t be complete without a summary of what the movie is about. Here goes: The main protagonist is Rodney Copperbottom (voiced by Ewan McGregor) who is this country boy/robot who wanted to go to Robot City and be an inventor. With the encouragement of his parents, he went off to see the most beloved inventor robot in the city, Mr Bigweld (Mel Brook), but Rodney found that Bigweld was missing and that his company was now under new management. It’s up to Rodney and his new found city pals to save the day from the new evil corporate manager Mr Ratchet (Greg Kinnear). That’s essentially it.

So, if you haven’t seen this movie yet, I strongly recommend you watch it. See ya again at the movies.
