(Event) "Pawse for a Cause" media launch x premiere screening of A Dog's Purpose

Hachiko

That was one of the first dog movies that brought tears to me.
Well.
Actually.
It was MORE THAN TEARS.
The first animal movie that made me cried uncontrollably coz I felt really really sad.

You would have watched Hachiko if you are an animal lover!!


After 80 years of Hachiko's death, the University of Tokyo where Ueno worked had finally pulled together to have this new statue, Hachiko has finally reunited with his owner

I initially thought that the story line for A Dog's Purpose would yield the same amount of crying that Hachiko had brought me, therefore, I did not wear any foundation and concealer. Just an eyeliner and brows to make me look less tired and a pack of tissue paper. The trailer of A Dog's Purpose, seems like a really pure happy and sad point of view from a dog's.

After registration, we got our tickets and I am quite excited and kinda have high expectations for the movie

This is the goodie bag. Some have cute little poop bags with container, dogs and cats food and treats!

And after the movie, it was just okay. Not the super teary kind. Very fast paced and straightforward. Some teary scenes and that is it. I think I will pick up the book coz usually books are better than movies. Anyhow, I still do doubt if dogs kept reincarnating into the lives of dogs instead of something else. It was worth the watch tho coz I think after the movie you may be more concerned and think from the point of view of your fur kids!! (Just my opinion!and that is what I felt)


For this movie tho they kept reincarnating into different lives of dogs and loves many many new humans in each lives.



Their lives, good or bad, are determined by their luck in whether they had a good or bad owner. 

They play.
They eat.
They comfort us.
They feel.
They detect our emotions.
They are always trying to cheer us up.
They are just so loyal.
They are not a hypocrite.
They are really "always here" for us no matter how we treat them.

Thank you PFAC and Butterfly Malaysia for giving me the opportunity to attend my first movie event! A bonus when it is much more meaningful!


That little poodle was my fur baby.
Her name is "Lady" in mandarin.
She chose that name, not me ^^
The other two toy dog are her playmates, her brother and sister that loves to bully her.
But, she likes it. ^^
That Schnauzer is called Choppa.
The Beagle is called Pudding.
