Sunday was Transformers Day for us. Joe had already scheduled his mind for this very special day. He marked this date weeks and maybe months ago better than he marked his exams. I even got my boys to wear their Transformers tee.
Anyway, Hubby got the tickets online so we don’t have to beat the queue. My sis, Elaine joined us on our T-Day. Hub got the seats 2-by-2. So, Joe sat with my sis; Hub looked after the girl while I got Javier stuck to me. Little one wasn’t feeling well but he insisted that he wanted to watch Transformers. So, be it.
We left home early to Pavilion because of the KL Marathon that was happening all over KL. We were afraid of road closures, traffic congestion and worse, human traffics at GSC. Haha!
Indeed there were minor jams. Lucky us! We arrived 2 hours earlier than our movie so we decided to lunch at Dragon-I.
Hmm I think the movie was great. A lot of people didn’t think it was up to par but different people have different reviews. Maybe some thought that several takes weren’t necessarily or maybe there’s too much emos going on between characters. A number of watchers love sticking to action scenes.
My grandparents just arrived from KT so they all came over for dinner at Silk Road. Uncle Yan was also around to savour the tantalizing food. Silk Road serves Sichuan dishes so mostly are a little on the spicy side but nevertheless worth the try and money.
Feeling better after the movie

This was our 3rd time dining at Silk Road. We ordered some of the previous dishes that we loved and some new ones to try. Overall, it was a yummy experience. We’re sure to return to Silk Road again in the future.
