What is it with Bumblebee?

As part of the work balance culture, our company has, we have been given free tickets to watch Transformers 3 at Eastwood Cinemas. I haven’t watch Transformers 1 and 2 and to be honest, I do not have any intention of watching the movie either. I decided to give my ticket to my friend Pam, who planned to bring her kids along. Anyway, I ended up keeping my ticet, for our viewing schedule is different from Pam’s team. It’s a good thing that one of my teammates will not be watching the movie, I decided to bring Nonet to her first movie at the theater. :)

Even if Transformers is not the kind of movie I would watch, I really enjoyed watching it. It’s a good thing that I did watch the movie. I love it. I may have not watche the first two installments of Transformers, but I was able to grasp the idea of the movie. It was really worth watching! :)

Alright, since that was the first movie that my daughter will be seeing in the bigscreen, she was given a heads up of what to see, what to expect as well as do’s and dont’s inside the cinema by my sister Patty. Well, Transformers is a 3-hour movie. At first, Nonet tried to make herself comfortable by eating popcorn and drinking soda. As the movie started, she asked me to carry her as she started asking questions about the movie. Then, she decided to sit on her own chair again and started on my popcorn. She felt bored during the middle part of the story that she asked me to carry her again because she is sleepy. Well, she didn’t fall asleep. I asked her to drink soda again. Hehehe! As the end of the movie is approaching, I found her sitting upright and focused on the movie.

When the movie ended, the viewers gave it a round of applause and so did Nonet. As we leave the movie house, she was asked me to buy her Bumblebee. Bumblebee really made a mark on her. She didn’t care whether Optimus Prime is stronger and bigger than Bee.

I wonder what is it with Bumblebee that captured the heart of my daughter.  I guess even if Bumblebee is a robot perse, he has a heart. Inspite of his being a metal and iron, he has a heart. I was really touch and near crying, when Bee was about to be destroyed by one of the Decepticons who captured them. I was touched, how Sam Witwicky cried as he watched his friend nearing its end.

Bumblebee made us all laugh at the end of the movie, when he dropped several “rings” and hummed a wedding march as Sam and his girlfriend were reunited. :)

Since, I was at Megamall last Saturday already, I decided to check Transformers at Toy Kingdom. My daughter is only five years old only and I thought of getting her a diecast model of Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. I also bought her a small “robot” version (sorry for my terms. I just don’t know the right words to use.. :P ) of Bumblebee. According to the label it is very easy to assemble and to transform into car and into robot. :)

My daughter was delighted of course. I told her that she can play with the Bee and Optimus diecast, but we’ll just keep the robot one on display. I told her that when she’s older, then she can play with it as well. :)

Oh, don’t get me wrong. My daughter is not a tomboy. She just enjoy playing cars and robots but she plays Barbie and dolls more often. :)

Well, she is looking forward to another movie that we will be watching. I might take her to Harry Potter 7 Part 2, since she has been watching Harry Potter DVD with us always. :)

Ciao! :)
