Eragon Advanced Screening and the Demonic Traffic

I watched this movie yesterday. we got free tickets to watch it and i must say this dragon-magic movie is promising.

it was about 2 hours and 30 minutes long but i didn't feel bored. The story is very engaging and the lead character was gorgeous. the dragon was made magnificently, unlike other dragons in other movies that were poorly animated. it seemed so real!

on the bad side, and this has nothing to do with the movie. traffic was terrible! loads of people were waiting for rides that we declared it impossible for us to get home. instead, we had to spend the night in one hotel and we just went home early in the morning around 6am. we found ourselves walking in Baclaran and Edsa extension as the sun was rising. the smell of these areas were almost unbearable, what a way to start our morning. this was all because yesterday night was the Pyro Olympics night in Mall of Asia. Not just hundreds but thousands of people were walking the highway like ants, scavenging for buses and jeepneys.
we wanted to witness Pyro Olympics today but after seeing the situation and experiencing the human and vehicular traffic it caused made us change our minds. we already saw it last year anyway.

Both of us (azrael and i) were also sick to death last night with cough and colds. i was worried and stressed all night as my mom will be upset with everything.

When we arrived home awhile back around 7am, we went to sleep again and woke up at 11.30am. determined of getting healthier, we both did Yoga in the afternoon. It was azrael's first time and his reactions were priceless as he tries to become a human pretzel.
