Mamma Mia night

I saw Mamma Mia yesterday with my sister and Mom and boy was I in for a surprise!

I thought this would just be another boring film with lots of silly jumping and awkward singing, but it turned out to be a great fun to watch. My favorite scene was when Donna (Streep) was singing Abba's "Slipping Through My Fingers" to Sophie (Seyfried) while she was getting dressed for her wedding.

"Schoolbag in hand, she leaves home in the early morning
Waving goodbye with an absent-minded smile
I watch her go with a surge of that well-known sadness
And I have to sit down for a while ..."

From the first line to the last, it makes you reminisce what precious time you've let pass and what you'd give up just to experience those little things again.

Knowing I was with my mom and my sister (and how inseparable these two are), I glanced at my mom and saw her watching the scene intently. How sad this must be for her knowing she'll experience the same feeling with my sister.

After the film, I bought a book (thanks to the rave reviews I got from my officemate, Shau. Stephenie Meyer owes her big time 'cause I rarely buy books worth more than P200. hehe I'm such a cheapskate!)

I'll have to finish the book before the movie gets shown in the Philippines. :)

I have all three Twilight Books (Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse) and I love them. The 4th book is coming out in August and it's entitled "Breaking Dawn".

I'm sure you'll enjoy reading it. =)
