Watch a movie
What is there to do on a lazy Saturday night. Watch a movie and that what we did. It went alright till the middle of the movie and the screen went all white and I was shocked that everyone remains calm and quietly took their coats and walk out. Apparently that was the intermissions and they do that here.
If it was back in Malaysia people will definitly think that something have gone wrong with the film and make lots of noice. You will never know till you experience it... and I must say it was a nice surprise and you can go have a drink, smoke inbetween the movies without missing anything.Related to:

Visit the Batavia a VOC return-ship...
Some history about the VOC under which flag the Batavia set sail.
VOC, what does it stand for?
In 1602 The Dutch United East Indies Company (VOC) was founded.
On the instigation of the then States General, a number of merchants of the provinces of Holland and Zeeland decided to cooperate closely in Eastern Asia where they formerly competed against one another.
The newly formed company was named the "Verenigde Oost Indische Compagnie" (VOC).
After all the company was granted exclusive rights by the States General for trade in the East Indies and the right to negotiate treaties and, if need be, wage war.
The new company developed rapidly and prospered. Profits were enormous, and many investors were drawn to participate in the lucrative sea trade.Related to:
