Question about Japanese

​​What is the difference between 「昨日は映画を見て、パスタを食べて、お酒を飲んだ。」and 「昨日は映画を見たり、パスタを食たり、お酒を飲んだ。」?

I know that 〜たりis used to list a number of actions, but how is it different from using the te-form? Is it that the 〜たりform has no particular order in which the actions are performed? Are there any other implications?

Thanks in advance.
