Harry Potter Mania
These are the much awaited days of JK Rowling fans. Why? Because of these two reasons:
(1) Because of the release of JK Rowling’s Book 7, which is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. Bad news; this will be the last book of HP. JK will no longer make another HP book. And the good news; is that, giant selected bookstores will give discount for this book.
(2) Of course, as everyone knows, this day is the premier of one of the biggest films of this year, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (except for some countries like in Germany where the premier of this movie is on July 13).
On this film, Harry, 15, is now on his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He is even more matured on this film compared to how we see him in his first movie HP. Now, this Harry, for the first time, fell in love to a girl…a love story in Harry Potter.;)) He is also now even more powerful and somewhat rebellious (parang UP student). The film again, started on a vacation, where Harry, lack communication from his friends at Hogwarts. The film is ‘again’ about the revival of the lord of evil, Lord Voldemort.
As what was said in the news, I also find this movie too dark…the darkest among the HP movies because Voldemort is back. Amazing as he is, Harry became a teacher to his friends; leader of somewhat a secret society. There are also, new characters in the film like the two new lady professors which I forgot their names. The soundtracks and effects are somehow still the same as the previous movies.
Anyway, you might be wondering if I saw the film today. Did I?—Well not really. Actually, I am just planning to see it all by my self (because she already saw it in a movie house this afternoon). I thought I can watch it with her. Anyway, I’d like to share this site to you guys where I found lots of movie clips from the New Harry Potter movie. Yup, these are actual clips from the film; not just a trailer. Just click this links below and enjoy watching!
(Just don’t be bothered by the advertisement at the beginning of each clips.)
- Potter Leaves Privet Drive
- Dumbledore Challenges Ministry
- Snapes Teaches Harry Occlumency
- Umbridge Holds First Class
- Harry Confesses Fears to Sirius
- Final Showdown
- Students Learn How to Make a Patronus
- Potter Sees Thestrals
I’m sure lots of fans are very happy today. JK is really a genius. I wish I have her talent.

Kundiman by Silent Sanctuary
Para kang asukal
Sintamis mong magmahal
Para kang pintura
Buhay ko ikaw ang nagpinta
Para kang unan
Pinapainit mo ang aking tiyan
Para kang kumot na yumayakap
Sa tuwing ako’y nalulungkot
Kaya’t wag magtataka
Kung bakit ayaw kitang maawala
Kung hindi man tayo hanggang dulo
Wag mong kalimutan
Nandito lang ako
Di ako lalayo
Dahil ang tanging panalangin ko ay ikaw
Di baleng maghapon umulan
Basta’t ikaw ang sasandalan
Liwanag ng lumulubog na araw
Kay sarap pagmasdan
Lalo na pag nasisinagan ang iyong mukha
Ayoko ng magsawa
(repeat refrain & chorus)
Bahala na, ayoko muna magsalita
Hayaan na muna natin ang hatol ng tadhana

What I Miss Most...
Last Friday, I was once again late on our call time. We planned to ride on a same jeepney trip. But I was a minute late. Her jeep just passed by when I came at the meeting place. Anyway, we both came to the REAL meeting place, at Elbi, with just seconds of discrepancy. There, we found a bundle of kids, her classmates, playing in McDonald’s…chatting…laughing…and shouting. It was like a high school reunion. Then, we went to UP campus, met more high school friends. There, we did nothing but talk about the people who passes by…laughed again and shouted. Before we go home, I treat her with a cheap snacks (just a burger and soda)…for I had not that much money left.
When we took apart, it was too late when I realized that I left my cell phone on her bag. And so, my cell phone spent several days with her. It was just this afternoon when I got it back. I missed it…but, I missed more the girl who took care of it.
Irrelevant: It was my first time to use Microsoft office 2007 today. Woa! Two thumbs up! I love the new appearance and the way it pimped my computer…and most of all, I love how it made me work and manage files so easily.
When was the last time you visited your Friendster account?
It was 48 years ago since I last opened my account in friendster. Nah, ‘just kidding. But honestly, it was very long…long time ago. And when I checked it, there so many unread messages and unapproved friend requests. On the other hand, she who has almost a thousand of friends had 200+ viewers for the past month. Weeh! Andami! I wish I had too. Anyway, she asked me if I can make a layout for us (meaning, for us to have the same layout). And so I did. I hope she and others will like it. Anyway, check out our friendsters’ new look. Here a re the links: http://www.friendster.com/arn019 and http://www.friendster.com/cathleenjoy . Thanks for visiting!
