Crazy for HP!

Image borrowed from files.wordpress.com

I just saw the trailer of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. For reasons other people will never understand, I cried. Four years ago, my girlfriends persuaded me to read the books. After Sorcerer's Stone, I was hooked. The wizards have won over my very soul for the rest of my life.

It all boils down now to the final chapter, where Harry finally comes face to face with destiny, and the one enemy that can never survive while he exists. The final installment will be divided into two parts. The first half will be shown on November of this year. We'll have to wait until July, 2011 for Part 2. But even now, I find myself feeling quite sad that the end has come for this literary masterpiece-turned-silver screen blockbuster. What is there left to expect after Harry Potter? I remember reading a Daniel Radcliffe interview on the net, and he mentioned being worried about life after filming Harry Potter. They were all so used to making the movies that it's hard for them to imagine life afterwards. I think I understand how he feels. After the last chapter, there will be nothing else to look forward to.

Millions of Harry Potter fans all over the globe, including myself, will be waiting eagerly for the Deathly Hallows on the big screen. I re-read all seven books a month or two before an HP film is released. So now I'm dusting off my J.K. Rowling collection so I can start reading them again, for the third time. And I will never grow tired of going through the stories over and over.

Wanna check out the trailer? It's awesome! Click here!

Dad is getting the new Samsung 3D TV for the family room, and I heard him tell the guy from Abenson's on the phone:

Kaya lang dalawang glasses lang kasama niyan. Eh six kami dito eh. Kukuha pa ako ng apat.

Yey! I'm still part of the head count! I know I'm getting married soon, and I won't be living with the family in this new house anymore. But I still want to feel part of it. I still want to be included. And I'd like to have my own pair of 3D glasses, too.


Blondes don't have more fun...

...BRIDES do! ;)

My friend, Doc Harry, shared the link to the site with me as soon as he found out that I was tying the knot. And the site has been very helpful! I found my photographer (Terry Uy) and videographer (Geronimo Photographico) through their suppliers' directory. You'll love the look of the website, too! So go check it out!

Daddy's Little Girl

I can't begin to tell you how awesome my parents are. There may be times I complain about a flaw or two, but really, I have the best daddy and mommy in the world and beyond. They love me, and I know that they will no matter what happens. That's what makes them so wonderful.

Yesterday's Father's Day celebration was a happy one, with my fiance joining us for a late lunch at Chili's. We gave Dad a gigantic greeting card, with a message from each of us, and our pictures pasted on it. It's a simple gift, but with a lot of love. (I already got him a new wallet last week. Advanced FD present.)I've always considered myself as a daddy's girl. Me and him are so much alike. We're both headstrong and stubborn and we both get super init ulo when we're hungry. We both strive to be on top, to become leaders instead of followers. I am what I am now mainly because of his influence. At 31 (heck, even when I'm 50), I'll always be proud to be Daddy's Little Girl.

On this week's Post Secret, celebrating Father's Day, these are my favorites:

Nobody in this world can ever take the place of my parents in my heart and in my life. I know someday I'm gonna be a terrific mother. Because I learned from the best! I was raised well and with so much love by two of the most awesome people on earth - Dad and Mom.

Dear old house...

Just recently, my Dad purchased a new house. My family is starting to move their clothes and a few necessities to the new place as I write this. I've only seen the photos, but it's a big and beautiful new home. They're all excited to move out of this old house in BF. I, on the other hand, am feeling passive and somewhat sad. I can't really share in their enthusiasm because the new house was purchased without me being part of the head count anymore. I can't be excited because I don't have a room there to begin with. After my wedding this September, my husband and I will have the old house to ourselves. I'm staying in BF to start a new life. That's why the new Asis residence no longer includes me.

Although I know this would happen eventually and I can't begin to tell you how eager I am to live in this old BF place with my husband, a part of me is feeling sad. I can't help but feel left out. For the next few months, until my wedding day on September 8, I'll be bunking in with my sister, Adie. There isn't even a guest room where I can temporarily place my things. So I have no choice but to borrow a bit of space in her bedroom. Sigh.

I guess that's why I feel no affection for the new house, no matter how grand and beautiful it is. I'm not that excited to see it. I'm happy for my folks because they've always wanted to move to a bigger house in a better village. But my heart stays in this old place. This has been my home for the past nineteen years. And this will continue to be my home as I start a new chapter in my life very soon, as Alvin's wife.

I'm staying with you, dear old house. Because I know that no matter what happens, you'll always have a room for me.
