Almost all Chinese I must say love their Chinese movies around the world. I do have a special habit of "attending a good show " as a way of celebrating Chinese New Year in my own way. A friend and I got together to watch Andy Lau's "Shaolin". Brilliant movie actually.
And what's nice was the way the Star Cineplex giving out 3 angpow packets. Nowadays a lot of people have the hobby of collecting angpow(red) packets. The show tickets were RM10.00
And this reminds me of the days when my grandmother took me to the movies in Lido or Rex Cinemas in Sibu...she paid $1.10 for her ticket and I "followed" her in....Kids did not get a ticket and most adults would bring in two kids if possible. The third one would just "slip" in!! In those days we just loved going to the cinema with our grandmother who enjoyed the movies as much as anyone their DVDs today.
Or some kids would buy 50 cents ticket and come out of the cinema with a headache as well as a neckache!
Those were the frugal days!
