Lunch at Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen/ Movie "Source Code" @ Century Square

We gobbled up our lunch at Popeyes before rushing to catch the movie "Source Code".
The little biscuit was being wrapped up like a burger when it was served to us.
Fried Shrimps
"Wendy's" has square-shaped bun burgers.  Here at Popeyes, the burgers are "Diamond-shaped".  The burger was quite tasty with a big chunk of chicken fillet sandwiched between the diamond-shaped buns.

"Source Code"
Synopsis: When decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up in the body of an unknown man, he discovers he's part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. In an assignment unlike any he's ever known, he learns he's part of a government experiment called the "Source Code," a program that enables him to cross over into another man's identity in the last 8 minutes of his life. With a second, much larger target threatening to kill millions in downtown Chicago, Colter re-lives the incident over and over again, gathering clues each time, until he can solve the mystery of who is behind the bombs and prevent the next attack. Filled with mind-boggling twists and heart-pounding suspense, Source Code is a smart action-thriller directed by Duncan Jones (Moon) also starring Michelle Monaghan (Eagle Eye, Due Date), Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Departed), and Jeffrey Wright (Quantum of Solace, Syriana).  

At first, I thought this is just some low budget film with only a few main characters and the almost same scenes will repeat itself again and again.  However, there are some fine details that you need to catch in order to link everything together.  It is a film that will set you to think.  However, towards the end, some people have different interpretations.  What is your interpretation?  Care to share here?

After the movie, we went to the basement to get some dessert from "Dessert Story".  However, their desserts were a disappointment.  I ordered beancurd barley and it came in a very small bowl with no trace of beancurd and a bit of barley.  It tasted so bland and this tiny bowl with no substance cost $3.50!

Hubby's ordered yam paste with ginko nut and pumpkin.  Presentation wise it looked much better but tastewise, it was just average.

I will not have my dessert here again.  :(
