Movies and Mall Chinese


On a rainy Sunday, when Toby and I are hungover, tired and just want to escape, it's all about a long standing ritual- Movie and Mall Chinese. Kinda self-explanatory really, it consists of cheap Chinese food- the kind you normally get at a mall in NZ- you know- all smorgasboardy, and a movie-  preferably something a bit silly.


Well, Mall Chinese isn't too easy to find in Amsterdam but we headed to Chinatown and it was all chickenchowmien-sweetandsourpork-msg goodness. Then we biked down to the Tuschinski theatre, which is the most gorgeous theatre, I was entranced by all the weird art deco style murals over the lobby walls and ceiling. It makes going to the movies that much more special, even if you cheap out on dinner.
