Kung Fu Panda with 26 Kids

On Saturday morning, me and few friends brought 26 kids to watch Kung Fu Panda at Cineleisure. Twenty of those kids were from an underprivileged kids' home while the remaining six were our gang's kids.

By 8.50am I entered IKEA's basement car park and we brought all of them to IKEA's restaurant for the cheap cheap breakfast.

It was friend mee with the spicy sambal on their menu. They enjoyed it and was estatic when they found out that they could refill their drinks without limit.
This was taken while they were waiting for their food.

IKEA has this unique tray that could hold at least a few persons' servings at one go. Saves time and to ensure the queue moves on quickly. We occupied one corner of the restaurant.

Then off to Cineleisure for our show at 10.45am, the morning matinee. Never regretted bringing them for this Kung Fu Panda movie as adults all over the cinema hall laughed louder than the kids.

If you have not watch this animated movie, you have wasted something in your life. It's really hilarious. If you have been suffering at work for past weeks, this is your antidote.

Need to get them to line up while walking back to IKEA from Cineleisure. Not taking any chances if one was to get lost on the way back to the car park.

Our entourage caught many attention indeed with their striking green colour t-shirts.

Bought them the RM1.00 ice-cream at IKEA.
Who cares whether the floor is clean or not as long as they have the ice-cream.

They received a pack of goodies too.
The kids standing in different groups according to the different cars that they came with.
A few of us stayed back for lunch and we saw this Mama Nyonya restaurant. Always a crowd pulling kind of food for Malaysians.
Took the local delicacy of Nasi Lemak that comes with spicy chilli as well. I like spicy food. Never going to have enough of it.
This is the yam cake that came with their special sweet sauce and chilli again (optional of course but for me was compulsory).

That's a great thing you and your friends did! I'm sure the kids had a great time watching Kungfu Panda. It's an excellent show for kids and adults - not only is it terribly funny, it also teaches us a thing or two about life. For the kids, it teaches them to believe in themselves and they can overcome the odds, and to believe in their dreams even if they seem impossible at first.

to all commenters - this is just a small way of contributing to the society. can't do it alone so we combined our efforts. don't need to be extravagant but to those kids, it meant a whole lot.

borneo falcon - this movie is absolutely fantastic. top of the notch and i planned to obtain the cantonese version of it where jackie chan and his son were behind those voices
