Harry Potter 7, will be surely missed

Why do I love the friendship among Harry, Ron and Hermione?

I think it’s because they know their PURPOSE as the protagonists in the book adaptation Harry Potter.

Just yesterday, I eagerly watched Harry Potter and the deathly hollows (Part 1) with my fave movie buddy in town, my sister, Pao. Oh my! I was really impressed and my anxiety grew with the dark visual and intense sound effects plus the vigorous and riveting musical compositions and the jaw dropping special effects . Well, this coming of age film never fails to flabbergast me from the first scene wherein Lord Voldemort gathered all his dark forces supporters in which he brutally tortures Professor Charity Burbage (it was a trembling scene for it showed their disloyalty between friends- Professor Burbage and Snape), until the final scene wherein he robbed Dumbledore’s wand for his undoubtedly evil interest. I was dismayed because I was programmed to end the whole scene wherein Harry Potter would finally defeat Voldemort.
But that’s the power of film, it may exudes your temper to wait for the next HP series.

I was really thrilled by the story line and twists. These questions occupied my mind after watching the movie and lemme share this to those who doesn’t watch the film yet. Why does Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) needs to change his wand in killing Harry Potter? Why did Harry(Daniel Radcliffe) turned undesirable in the Wizard’s world? Did Ron (Rupet Grint) got jealous over Harry’s and Hermione’s brilliance (Remember: Ron is sometimes dull headed)? OR it’s because Harry’s and Hermione’s partnership in defeating Voldemort are getting stronger? Who would betray who?

I also love the scene wherein the 3 characters consistently overcome their fears of independency, insecurity and disloyalty. It was such a never-ending struggle between the protagonists and antagonists. Contrary to Hermione's (Emma Watson) concerned nature, she showed fierceness in using her wand to kill the enemies' attacks. Yes, her character was really a hit for me. She depicted her physical and emotional capacity to survive, though we know that she’s a mudblood. Of couse, it’s also a much awaited scene on how Ron would vanquish his fear in helping the damsel in distress, Hermione.

Their friendship was tested. Voldemort, reigned with his vengeance. In the midst of story’s plot of turmoil and disarray, avid Potter readers will find some sense of control as the film revisits quite a few of the “obliviating” and scores of other spells, PolyJuice potions, and magical mirrored objects introduced in Harry’s earlier years at Hogwarts.

Though most of the cinematography exposed visual anxiety, there were also serene and humorous moments among the characters. The audience may find it hilarious too. As for me, I heard a group of high school students most of the time sharing their sighs along with the spectator like us..^_^

Every HP fans would wait for July until we’ll be over with this whole series. I’m not affected much, but I’ll surely miss this grandiose film of all time.

Declaration of Purity

I don’t know but I have this certain excitement in posting a declaration as serious as this. Most of my Christian friends (whether from SFC or Born Again Christian) would always tell me, “The desire of my heart would be granted.” (Proverbs 10:24)

 I keep on waiting and waiting for the right man to comes along. Yes, I admit that I’m becoming impatient and I admittingly did mistakes in choosing who to love, my intentions in loving the person and I became envious too with those who have a loving partners. It’s been a struggle for me to accept that maybe it’s not yet my turn. The effects on me are sometimes bad. God and some of my trusted friends know what I’ve been through in my LOVELIFE.

But the Good Lord, gave me reasons not to be disappointed for not having THE ONE. He supplied me with His patience and love through the people surrounding me. From the love and support of my family, community, friends, Bible, prayers, trust in me, how I can’t be alone with this battle?

                   “When God made you, He must’ve been thinking about me.”
                                                                       -       Newsong
God is always faithful in making me believe, that there’s someone meant for me. I would always have trust his promise. That’s my heartfelt determination. I’m so proud of my past decisions when it comes to sexual purity. I also learned a lot from the books that I’ve been reading since then. Such as What to do until Love finds you, Joyfully single, How to meet your One true love, Captivating, Bible stories especially Ruth’s and Boaz’s love story, testimonies of True Love waiters and my own experiences too. Nothing can compare to the joy that RIGHT TIMING gives. I would willingly grasp it in my hands, and embrace it till it last.

It's better to know and love the Lord for his kindness first. I've learned to value myself more and be contented with him. I bore an imperfect love for the ONE who make things perfectly. He started to erase my shame and he wanted me to believe for my TRUE BEAUTY.

Though this is inconsistent that every morning I would ask for my Creator's embrace. I'll make sure that I spend a few minutes of my time in having a "3rd place,"- a place between me and my Father. Our connection is just a prayer away. I love what I'm doing.

                  " Oh God is enough for me, nothing else will ever be."
                                      (from the song God is Enough)

 I also saw how my immature and childish ways deceived me before- ahh..there are times, that still I am. I chose the forbidden path at times, but as my Household head before told me. I willingly ask for forgiveness. Repent. And take chances.

So as I made a resolve for all my struggles, I know I'll be tested like Job. But I don't care enough for that, as long as I have my trusted friends and community. Through that resolve, I know I would grow and be mature enough someday. My preacher, Bro. Bo Sanchez once said: Here's a secret mature people know in their hearts even if they don't know it cognitively: Your phyisiology affects your psychology. Your feeling follows your action.

I totally agree on it. If we keep on doing acts of love, we increase our feelings of love.

 I'll stand firm:

I surrender all my hindrances in loving truly, the way love should manifest. It's my heart's desire. BUT waiting for the right man, time and place are the most essential of all. While, you're not yet there, MY MAN. I'll take
time to fly with all the goodness of my heart.

Happy Pepero day

Today is  Korea's celebration for Pepero day. It's similar with Valentines day.  It is named after the Korean snack Pepero and held on November 11, since the date "11/11" resembles four sticks of Pepero. Every teacher here in the office had a unique way of greeting each of the students. And for me, I greeted them with enthusiasm and I asked them if they could also give me some (though it's impossible to do so, teasing is just a rapport building between me and my students.)It's kinda upsetting because 2 of my academy classes were done eating their pepero so I didn't have the chance to capture the box of pepero.: (

But Teacher Cherry sent through the message pop up her students showing her the strawberry flavored pepero, in which my advanced students confirm that it's not the original one. But it's ok. I was relieved to see this.

After handling 2 consecutive academies, I had a one on one class with Sam. During the circle time, I asked her if she ate some pepero today. And she said, " Yes." I told her to get it, unhesitantly she showed the pepero box. I excitedly took her a picture. : )

( Sam shyly showing her pepero)

Thank God for my 2 hour break atleast I could prepare some of my stuffs for this day, you know whether personal or job related paraphernalia. (That was the time where I had an idea in blogging about pepero)

          It needs to have a distinction between my kiddie and advanced student. So there you go.  It was more detailed to communicate with my highschool students. During the conversation that I had with my 3 male students, they told me that this day was only for couples. Since he was single and noone gave him pepero, he was quite upset for what he saw. Anyway, I affirmed him that we love him. He was relaxed. They were really funny students. ^ ^

I've tasted pepero already. It was like a crunchy snack coated with chocolate. Our Korean manager gave each teachers when she returned from Korea. Nice one! * ~ *

Nong isang araw ko pa iniisip ang mga katagang ito. Salamat at naipahiwatig ko na sa pamamagitan
ng larawang ito.
Masaya ako kapag nagkekwento ako. Kaakibat na yun ng buhay ko.
Bata pa lang ako sabi ni lolo eh sobrang pala-kwento na ko, pero alam
ko ang salitang kontrol at tamang pag-pili ng mga salita.

Sapagkat natutunan yun sa tamang pag-aaral at gabay ng mga nakatatanda.

Kalalakhan ko na ang pag-kekekwento, pangako ko yan sa sarili ko't
sa iba. Balang araw maikikwento ang pinaka magandang mga
storya sa buong mundo.

Hinay-hinay lang.

Child's eyes

Oct. 23, 2010

I'm currently sitting with this very bubbly, naughty, hyper-active Korean girl named Jessica. We used to call her "The Jessica" because she always puts "the-article-the" whenever she makes sentences. It's kinda tiring to sit with her, talk with her because she has so many inquiries(woah-whatta functioning brain!).

But I enjoyed being with her. She was plainfully cute and wonderful.

One time, she sweetly and innocently asked me if she could sit down on my lap while I was readying myself for the Demo of new book. I allowed her to do so.

Then she asked me if she truly looked like Sadako. Well, unabashedly her eyeballs were gone and I only see her sclera (happy halloween The Jessica and ENOZ!). Then I told her, "You look like Sadako whenever you do that expression, but when your eyes look normal, you appear like Pucca."  She went on, " Who's Pucca?" Then I set my eyes on the net and searched for pucca's image. Then I enlarged the cute photograph so that she could recognize it. She smiled at me and said, "I look like her?" And I said, " Yes!"

(The Jessica-pucca)

As I was thinking she only needed to hear another set of words, because she was used to hear a lot of teases that she looked like Sadako.

Then she asked me of what she could wear for the Halloween. I ceased for a second and said, "Maybe you could be a ghost!" She said, "Yes, I want too." We want to my station to get some props and voila! I found my websy cotton stuff for my halloween designed background. She said she wanted me to put these things on her dress that she may look like a ghost.

So I was looking forward to glance her on that day.

Press fast forward:
Oct. 31, 2010

The Jessica walked on Enoz' aisle and parading her beautiful self from station to station. I expected more and I was right. I told myself, " I thought you'll be a ghost!"

But apparently she was outshining with her long black dress witchie costume.. That made the rest of us awe to her. : )

(I love you, pls don't pay a visit with me when I'm alone..~ _ ~)
