Annette and I watched Ponyo this morning, thanks to some free tickets from Energy Australia that we got a while ago. We both loved it! It’s a very endearing story I thought. Annette is still finding cinema-going a novel experience (this is only her second time), so she had lots of fun.
The story has similarities to The Little Mermaid, it’s about a goldfish (Ponyo) who wants to be a human girl so she can be with Sosuke, a five-year-old boy who rescued her when she was stuck in a cast-off jar. There’s an environmental message in there too. Such a charming movie, I highly recommend it if you haven’t seen it.
After the movie we pottered around at the EQ Markets and had some yummy lunch. The flowers were looking stunning too, such a feast of colours!
