movie date: The Wedding Date

It's not normal for Borgy to have 2 consecutive days off so I took advantage of it and asked him to watch a movie. Yesterday before going to work, we watch The Wedding Date. It stars Debra Messing (a.k.a Grace) and Dermot Mulroney ( Julia Roberts Bestfriend in My Best Friend's Wedding). I know that this a romantic-comedy film so I was suprise on some heart-thugging scenes. Surprisingly, some of them made me cry. I'm such a crybaby. wehehe

Borgy asked me why I was crying. I don't know what to say. Eh naiiyak ako eh, bakit ba?! I remember one line at the film, Nick (Dermot) says to Kat (Debra) that he'd rather be fighting with her rather than making love with someone else. Hayyy...

I think the last time that we've seen a romantic-comedy film was 50 First Dates, and it was nice to watch one again.

last weekend

Borgy and I was able to spend quality time (yey!) last weekend. Although we just went to the mall to buy some stuff and most of the time, he was waiting for me to finish selecting them. I know it's not the most romantic way to spend time with one another, but still being together is what counts. :) Then we went over to my cousin's house, he wanted to see their new pitbull pup. Her name is Pringles.


Last weekend was a great one. We had a reunion. Almost every year, one of our relatives either from US, Canada or Australia comes home. This time, many of them are here. Ate Rhea and Kuya Zaldy (from Australia), Ate Leovy (from Canada), Tito Aris and his wife tita Delfa and Mama Deleng with Lolo Amber (from US). Many came, usually oldies, far relatives from Bangkal, Makati who I only met there. We stayed 'til 9pm, todong kwentuhan nnman. Too bad I forgot to bring my cam at the reunion. Who knows when that will happen again.

I was not able to review for the MCP exam. Was not able to turn even a page on that God-awful-two-inch-thick reviewer! wtf?!?

waiting for Harry

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will hit bookstands/bookstores July 16, 2005. Can't wait for this book. Got some info on the book, read on.

Random facts about the book (from

We will learn a lot more about Voldemort in this book.

HBP will be an intense book, but with light-hearted moments.

Harry will leave Privet Drive early again, for a "much pleasanter" reason than in book 5.

The opening chapter of book 6 was originally planned for the early parts of book 1, perhaps we get a more in-depth story of what happened the night Harry's parents died.

Neither Harry or Voldemort (including Tom Riddle) are the Half-Blood Prince.

Arthur Weasley will not be the new Minister of Magic.

By the ends of books 6 and 7 "you'll have all the back story you'll need", says JK Rowling, and a prequel will not be necessary.

There will be a new Minister of Magic, no more Mr. Fudge.

We will find out what happened to Hagrid's half brother Grawp. He will be a bit more controllable in book 6.

The Dursleys are in the next book, but Harry's stay with them will be the shortest yet. In book 5 he stayed for 4 weeks, so we know his stay will be less than 4 weeks.

Cho Chang will not be a romantic interest of Harry in Book 6, however there will be a "little romance" for Harry says JK.

In books 6 and 7 we will find out exactly why JK killed off Sirius.

Harry becomes even more powerful in book 6.

In books 6 and 7 we will find out why Dumbledore trusts Snape.

We will find out what happened to Wormtail AKA Peter Pettigrew.

More about the animosity between Snape and Sirius will be revealed in the last 2 books.

JK has said that giving away the form of Snape's boggart and patronus says too much. We'll definitely find out what Snape's worst fear is, and it'll be important.

Hermione and Draco will NOT end up together in book 6 or 7.

We will find out what exactly Dudley saw when he looked at the dementors.

The reason Voldemort and Harry both didn't die when Voldemort tried to kill Harry, will be revealed.

We will see more of Draco's mother, Narcissa Malfoy, now that Lucius is busy.

We'll learn more about Harry's scar in the last 2 books.

Moaning Myrtle will make an appearance again, as will Tonks.

More about Voldemort's birth will be revealed, thus helping us understand why he is so evil.

Muggles begin to notice "more and more odd" occurrences in book 6, says JK.

The wizarding world is really at war in the sixth book.

Harry will tell his dearest friends about the prophesy after it sinks in to him.

We will learn more about Harry's relatives, including his grandparents (though JK says they aren't really important to the story)

We will find out what happened to Sirius's motorbike.

Book 6 will be shorter than the 5th book (or at least JK's 99% sure, but will not swear on her children's lives)

There will be no "new" nationalities of children at Hogwarts. Hogwarts is a British school, and JK says that adding foreigners for the sake of it is not in her plans.

During an interview, when JKR was asked in which Hogwarts room she'd like to be for 1 hour, she said it would be a room in which Harry has been before, but doesn't know its importance. Yet. (this could have happened in book 5, but we're unsure)

It's very important in the plot that Harry has his mother's eyes, and that her wand was very good for charms.

During an interview for Kids BBC, Victor Greensteet (reporter) asked Rowling if Harry would have a dragon for a pet. This is what she replied: "You can't tame a dragon, no matter what Hagrid thinks. It's simply impossible. So no. He has more common sense. He MAY have a different pet in the future, but for now, I won't say anything else". (This could have been buckbeak, but I'm sure we can expect more pets)

In the same interview for Kids BBC, the reporter asked J. K. if Harry had ever used the internet, and this is what she had to say: "No. They (the Dursleys) won't let him go near Dudley's computer, and Dudley is the only one who has a computer. They hit him if he gets too near to the keyboard. So the answer would be No. I use it a lot, but Harry doesn't. Wizards don't really need to go on the web. They have an even better way to find out what's happening in the outside world, which I think is a lot more fun than the Internet, but I'm going to keep quiet on this one."

The choice between what's right and what's easy will be a pillar of the plot in Harry's last 2 years at Hogwarts.

Harry's parents' profession will be a big part of the plot.

Something HUGE will be revealed about Lily Potter.

The movie Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will hit movie screens on Nov.2005. I just can't wait to see Victor Krum, Madame Maxine, Fluer, Barty Couch. Harry's all grown up at the pictures as well Hermione and Ron. I was checking some webistes and found some pretty production and promotional pictures. Enjoy. :) (click picture to see large pic)

...and after 6 months

Reading Neil's blog made me realize to update this. Nagcomment pa nga, update ko daw. I feel like I should not have read someone else's Blog, it made me think that what I noticed before was true. UGGHHH! I should not have read it. I don't wanna feel "ilang", he's a dear friend. I'll just pretend that I never read it. Ok. Fine. The END.


There's so many things to think about these days, that acceleration program about going to corp, studying for the MCP exam. I don't even know if I'm really ready for corp. Sure someday I'd like to go there, but I'm not sure if that someday is a few months from now. We'll see...


Daming noobies ngayon. Nag-ssetup sila ng mga PC. The more the merrier. Sana they will not see me blogging. hehehe, sabihin walang kwentang "oldies" ako. LOL
