Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two: Half review, half rubbish.

Voldemort: The boy who lived come to die.

I just can’t help myself with all the Harry Potter mania going about without me watching it. You see, I got a very bad day yesterday. It so happen that the bad vibes were prevalent from the time the day started until last midnight. The pressure was suffocating me that I forgot that academic performance is not that important to me (that I realized when I got my first 3.0 from my Trigonometry teacher... Ma’am toot, Thanks by the way!) The moment I got home from the killing atmosphere of school stuffs I decided watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. The video quality was mediocre what can I do? I needed to watch the film badly. Even though I asked my beloved sister for movie tickets I still end lying and watched the movie on my netbook. (Sorry sis, I need the money badly that’s why I decided to go thrifty all the way. But thanks though!) After watching it, a part of me died. I’ve been so attached to the books that’s why ending it was really sad. It is a turning for all Potterheads to face, it may hurt a lot but nevertheless it will be worth the wait.

Okay, so done with the cheesiness, I’ll start my so called review.

The movie, though dark and sinister gave the audiences an inevitable reality: Evil will never in any manner prevail and that there is goodness in everyone. I’ll give it a 5 out of 5 score for the plot and its twists as well (see how bias I am?) It emanates maturity, in the sense that Harry Potter was given a choice, either to end the fight or to die. Though some part of the film was humorous, you can never remove the fact that some characters will die in the near end of it. Reality of life permeates within it, even the permanence of death was a serious topic shown.

Harry Potter:  Does it hurt, dying?
Sirius: Quicker than falling asleep.

Then the fight scenes, it was bloody cool and wicked. The effects were so marvelous and believable. I can’t help but be amazed as the dementors glide into the air and as sparks flew midair with casts shooting out from wands. The Gringott’s scene with the dragon, super duper mega ultra WOW! And the duel with Voldermort’s unforgettable death really heightened my dampen mood. It so happen that I enjoyed much of the dialogues in it but still the battle of Hogwarts was a must see scene. 
Help, will be always given at Hogwarts to those who deserve it.
---Albus Dumbledore
The movie also was emotional and poignant. The pensieve scene where Harry saw the events unfolding right in front of him made a great impact to me. How Snape orchestrated Dumbledore’s death and his undying love for Lily really also made the movie remarkable.  I kept on sighing until the end of the movie because what I’ll bring with me will only be the memories of the book, things will never be the same after that. The adventure of the unkabogable trio: Hermione, Harry, and Ron really taught me to value friendship over any material things, because in our ugliest moments our true friends can see the beauty in us with no prejudice but with love. 

Do not grieve to the dead Harry, grieve to the living. And above all, all those who live without love.
---Albus Dumbledore again.

Watching the film really gave me a morale boost and a brighter mindset on life. It’s definitely a tear jerker and at the same time a comedic movie. The characters were unforgettable and so is the movie. Though, I watched it without spending a single penny, I recommend you watch it on the big screen. It is worth your penny and time. Maybe, just maybe when I’ll no longer be bombarded with assignments and codes I can read the seven books and watch the 8 movies as well. I don’t have any plans of forgetting the adventures of Harry Potter. I have already memorized the characters and the story by heart and there is no point of me forgetting the magic of just reading the whole series. It brought me to another world, a world where everything is possible. And a world in which goodness among all creatures prevails. I would not need the Deathly hallows to be happy, I have the seven books with me now and I am more than happy... I am ecstatic! 

Long live the WAND-erful Harry Potter series.

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
