I was at KL Performing Arts Centre to buy tickets (turns out my BSN debit card only works for manual transactions, not online ones, so I had to go there) when I passed by Sentul Park, and lo and behold!
Starlight Cinema was back!
I went there just to ask the ticket price and a movie list… but the guy insisted that I enter. He then stamped me.
“Tomorrow you come ah! Bring your girlfriend… no, bring your girlfriends!”
Do I look like I have this amazing power over women? Do I look like I date models? I don’t even have a car!
The projector. You could see them loading in reels regularly. Quite fun to watch.
A panoramic shot, sort of.
I then went to the Walls stall to get an ice-cream, and the girls there seemed so eager to see me. They were kinda cute, too. Or maybe it was because it was the second night, and there were only 50 people on the field. However, I’ll stick with my inflated ego for the moment.
After watching King Kong for free (and feeding mosquitoes for free) I walked out to Jalan Ipoh. (Remember, I don’t have a car?) On the way, I spotted a snail. 😀
I then hailed a cab, and when I got in, I pointed at the CD player and said, “Eh, Cromok!”
There is no better compliment to a mat rock taxi driver, to recognize his metal. He looked clean-cut though.
He then asked if I was Malay or Chinese, since Chinese usually listen to techno. I explained how I found the Cromok – Untitled album (2004) lying around the office, popped it in, and loved their thrash metal. I explained that I wasn’t Chinese-educated. I also justified that one of the members was Chinese and is now with a PR company.
“Wah, ini lagu banyak panjang, sampai rumah pun masih main.” – me commenting on Dying To Live, the 11-minute song that was playing the moment I entered the taxi until I reached home.
Freebies. I only ever use hair gel when I get it free.
