I'm sure many of you who are familiar with Chinese music, especially those born in the 80's  and 90's, would know this song, or at least its melody. 《温柔》 is one of Mayday 五月天's earlier works, and is also one of their most famous and memorable songs.

I have been a fan of Mayday since 2003, when I bought their 《时光机》 album, and I've never looked back. Their songs have become a major part in the soundtrack of my life. :)

《五月天 追梦3DNA电影》
Anyway, I managed to get 2 tickets to the special screening of Mayday's 3D movie, titled 《五月天 追梦3DNA电影》, at GSC MAXX in Berjaya Times Square last Sunday (11 September). The movie opens in cinemas worldwide on 16 September 2011, so we were one of the first ones to watch it! I had originally planned to watch this with a friend who is also a huge fan of Mayday, but she won't be back till this coming weekend :( so I asked my bro to accompany me to the premier screening.

*Must resist temptation to rip down and take home*
When we arrived at GSC MAXX (it's the old IMAX theater on the 10th floor of BTS), the 988 DJs were already halfway through giving out movie merchandise, so I quickly went to collect my tickets from the GSC booth and then joined in the fun. :P

988 DJs
The host announced that they were going to give out THREE autographed movie posters, so a whole bunch of us were eagerly waiting. Before that, however, they gave out some plastic folders to a few lucky fans. After that was the big one. The host gave the 3 guest DJs one poster each, and they would turn around with their backs to the crowd and throw it for us to grab. I was standing pretty near the front and missed the first two, but the third and last one...

...fell right into my hands! ♥ Autographed poster by all 5 members!

The top of the poster was slightly crumpled due to the bunch of people who were grabbing it at the same time, but it's not a big deal. I mean, it's a huge autographed poster with the signatures of all 5 Mayday members! Even my bro was like 'Whoa, nice!'. :D

Merchandise booth.
There was a merchandise booth there selling t-shirts and document folders, as well as a pre-order list for their movie soundtrack. The t-shirts cost RM80 and the folder was RM20. Kinda tempted to get the folder, but at RM20, I figured it was pretty expensive (plus I already had the priceless autographed poster in my hands muahahahahaha *evil laugh*).

The movie was scheduled to start at 11 a.m., so everybody started lining up to get into the cinema about 15 minutes before.

Our seats - K28 and K29.

Everybody was handed a pair of 3D glasses and a glow-in-the-dark stick when entering the cinema hall, to make it seem more like a concert. When the lights were dimmed, it really did look like we were inside an indoor stadium for a private concert. How cool is that!

Very high tech-looking 3D glasses.
Bro and I got purple ones.
Atmosphere was pretty much like a real concert.
The movie lasted about 1 hour 30 minutes. It's basically a Mayday concert on film in 3D, with 3 different stories concerning different people slotted in between. The 3 stories revolve around Mayday and their Shanghai concert, and in the end the 3 stories intersect with each other. The last story was really touching. T_T I had fun singing along, and the guy sitting next to me was also singing along with 阿信 and the rest, haha!

It was a great experience to watch this 3D concert-movie, and it was all the more enjoyable and memorable for me because it is Mayday's first 3D movie. If you're a Mayday fan or like their songs, then go for it! It's much cheaper than going to an actual concert, lol. Nevertheless, I'll still be saving up for tickets to their next concert here in Malaysia.

Before I go, one last picture of me with the 988 DJ host. :)

That's the sign for Mayday 五月天! ♥
