The "Final" Verdict

Last Friday, I felt fidgety over the fact that Book 7 will be released the next day. I collect HP books but I have the paperback versions of 1-4, book 5 in paperback however UK edition and book 6 hard bound but the UK edition’s size was just the same with the US version’s paperback. This is the reason why my mind is battling over buying and not buying... if I buy the last installment in hard bound it wouldn’t look great on my shelf. I though I could wait like last year however this year no e-book version was released. I know I ruined it for everyone who reads my blog when I said after 24 hours of Book 6’s release that Dumbledore died. I had an exchange of opinions with my friends & colleagues Jen & Rovs when they told me that it won’t hurt me if I wait a little longer & not to buy Book 7 the US hardbound edition. And since I am born without any EQ, I really went to bookstores last Saturday asking if I could purchase one copy. 2 of the stores I went to said I could but that I will have to buy it the next day after all the reserve copies were claimed by their rightful owners. I guess that was a clear sign that I should not buy a hard bound copy of the book. Later that day after discussing my sentiments with my friends, Joel who already got his copy told me that I could borrow his book because he’ll not be able to read it yet, as usual he’s busy with work. I grabbed the opportunity being offered to me after making sure that it is totally fine with him that I’ll be the first one to fumble through the lovely pages of his new book.

I finished the book in 8 hours and what can I say about the ending? Rowling did her best to end it in a way that it should be. I’m not gonna ruin it for everybody like I did last year. I’ll let everybody enjoy the last book and find out for themselves who’s the traitor, who died, who survived, and who lived. The Potter experience was really something. In a way I felt sad that next year all we can wait for is the Half Blood Prince movie and The Deathly Hallows in 2010. We’ll all be old in more years to come but everyone in our generation would know that when you mentioned “He Who Must Not Be Named” you’ll forever remember “The Boy Who Lived”.

Perhaps JK Rowling could write the story of the new generation (*hint hint*). But she's right when she said that she could no longer write anything as great as the HP series.

Thanks Jo for lending me your book.

Phrase (Praise) for...

Astig! I know this has been shown months ago or maybe last year (I’m not so sure anymore, my fault… how could I let a Leo movie pass me by?) but I had the chance to watch it on DVD recently. Thanks to Yong for lending me his uber linaw & hanep na DVD. This one really moved me to the edge of my seat (or bed hehehe). I’m adding it on the list of my favorite movies.

Unfortunately this one didn’t live up to my expectations, or might be because I am still mooning over Transformers. The IMAX experience didn’t help. There are a lot of scenes in the movie that would look great in 3D but what they did was concentrate the animation – all 20+ minutes of it in the end. The twin’s marvelous exit from Hogwarts (fireworks & everything) would have been a great part to show in 3D plus all scenes where brooms are concerned. As a Potter fan my favorite still by far is The Prisoner of Azkaban. I do hope that Yates would not disappoint us on the 6th & final installment of the movie (yes he’ll direct the movie version of Book 6 & 7 – goodluck).

More than really meets the eye. Do I need to say more?

I love him so much that I will forgive him for being really skinny hehehe. I’m pertaining to Adam, hehehe not the other skinny guy hehehe. Anyway Carter Webb is the 26 years old Seth Cohen. Love his humor, love his charisma, love everything about him. The movie is not something you’ll recommend to friends (as I told Jen, you didn’t miss anything if you didn’t get the chance to watch it) especially when they’re depressed. But if you’re a real Brody or Meg Ryan fan or if you have the hots for Kristen (the Panic Room daughter of Jodie Foster that all of us – yes everyone I know - mistook as a son) you won’t mind watching this one.

of the sad lonely posts, let's cheer up & be happy (okay just so everyone would know di ako bi-polar, I just want to end the week feeling happy). Here's a great songs that could cheer you all up. Happy Friday!!!

A Love Like This by Mark McGrath (yes friends, Mark of Sugar Ray)

There's a love that I'm feelin' when I look in your eyes
It's the same way I'm feelin' when you're lookin in mine
All the stars form a circle around you and I
Without you, there's nothin'
But there's one thing you should know
As you sit here all alone
Just come in close, there's something I should say
I been thinkin', wishin', hopin', prayin' in your heart is where I'm stayin'
A love like this doesn't happen too much
Even us are never like the sun and moon together
A love like this doesn't happen too much
(Doesn't happen too much)
When we woke up late from the sun through the blinds
There I knew I could sleep with your hand holdin' mine
And I feel like I'm fallin' for the first time
First time
Fallin', fallin', fallin'
But there's one thing you should know
As you sit here all alone
Just come in close, there's something I should say
I been thinkin', wishin', hopin', prayin' in your heart is where I'm stayin'
A love like this doesn't happen too much
Even us are never like the sun and moon together
A love like this, oh
I been thinkin', wishin', hopin', prayin' in your heart is where I'm stayin'
A love like this doesn't happen
Doesn't happen too much
I was so lonely, so lonely
Lonely for you
You were my only, my only
Lonely was you
I been thinkin', wishin', hopin', prayin' in your heart is where I'm stayin'
A love like this doesn't happen too much
Even us are never like the sun and moon together
A love like this, oh
I been thinkin', wishin', hopin', prayin' in your heart is where I'm stayin'
A love like this doesn't happen too much
Doesn't happen too much

Line Them Up

Things to be sad about…

I will enumerate them even though I hate to cause too much negative energy. As much as possible one would want to focus only on the positive side of life. And it’s a Monday (Note: I wrote this yesterday) – no one would want rants all week long. But unfortunately what I can only write about today is nothing but about loneliness (yes, after a weekend at Boracay I chose to go sentimental).

Leaving me again, I know you’ll always be my bestfriend but I am not a fan of all the miles between us. I love it when I can talk to you in person, hug you when I’m sad and do the same thing for you when you’re down. I like it a lot when I can guess everything you’re thinking about, complete your sentences & thoughts and even make you laugh cause you do the same things for me too, I am really blessed to have a bestfriend in you.

Your baby, as I said things happen for a reason dear. I know how devastated you are, losing the first life that will come from you. I know how you’ve been patiently waiting, wanting and praying for that baby that is why I understand that it’s killing you with sadness. Feeling and seeing how slowly the little angel is leaving you, it really sucks. I’m here I told you, I want you to remember it. I cannot help you with the pain but I promise you that I’m with you in praying for the best. He loves you very much & He has greater plans for you.


I believe you still have a chance, a chance to be the person you ought to be. I’m sorry I offended you, I didn’t mean to and I wasn’t really aware I have caused you pain. I don’t want to like you but you’re a good person that is why liking is you is like second skin. I just want you to realize where you stand. Don’t take what’s not yours and don’t you ever be possessive of something that is already mine.

Of all people, you were the one I thought would understand because I thought you trust me. It doesn’t mean that if girls made a mistake by messing up their lives means that I will fuck mine too. I was disappointed that you see me that way. I am not gonna end up like them believe me not because I want to prove you wrong but because I know better than that. I am not gonna give people the satisfaction they were hoping for. My downfall wouldn’t be that way.


Competing with you is pointless. I should not bother.

The waters & wind of Bora know all about you. How stupid you are, how lucky you are. How special you are and how pathetic you make me feel. How you make me happy and hurt me all at the same time. I can’t blame you, you don’t know anything. You don’t even bother knowing something. ..(deleted).

PS: I edited this entry grabe nahuhulaan ni Jen eh :D

Happy Birthday Yong!!!

at Yong's beautiful home

My bestfriend Luchie arrived last July 3, Yong's birthday. Although I was able to meet her last Thursday we didn't get to hang out with Yong & Mark. Last Sunday we raided Yong's cupboard, forced Mark to cook for us while Luch & I glued our eyes on the TV, asked the boys to do stuff for us like fetch us a glass of Coke, snacks or turn the TV channel (yep ganyan kame naging tamad at nagpa asikaso kay Yong & Mark). The boys didn't utter a word, they did everything pretty well hehehe.

Belated Happy Birthday Yong!!!

Thanks for the delicious pasta dish Mark! Pwede ka nang magka-restaurant.

Bestfriends for life.

Dinah's McDo Party

Belated Happy Birthday to you Dines!

I dunno what's happening to my friends, tumatanda ng paurong - nagsusunod sunod ang children's party hehehe. Jenny celebrated her 29th birthday in Jollibee and last Saturday (07-07-07, Dine's actual birthday) Dinah had her surprise breakfast party at McDonalds Fort. Kudos to Jeng & co. for the successful party. Nagulat talaga si Dines :)

sabi ni Sister Jen natututo na daw akong mag-emote, ikaw ba naman magkaron ng bestfriend na addict sa picture at mga close friends na feeling nasa pictorial all the time?

Cool Shades noh? Chillin' with Papa Udeng

with the birthday girl's pretty Mom - Tita Violy

at syempre di mawawalan ng picture ang world's greatest love triangle (Jen, Udeng & Jeng)
