Gotta goooo.... this is it, my last date with Harry Potter
Night of the 12th, I got a text from Krissy na tuloy na tuloy na tuloy na kami sa Harry Potter premiere the next day, sa Glorietta 4! So Tuesday night, nag treasure hunt ako sa big cabinets ko of memorabilia looking for these:
HP printed pictures, magazines, newspaper clips of movie posters, cards, articles, etcetera.
A "stamp" I made for an Art subject in high school, na Harry Potter themed parin:
Jejemon pa ako noon, haha:
I could have written this poem, obsessed, haha:
Even my hand sanitizer before may Harry Potter design, haha:
I was talking to Krissy how she chose me to go with her, kasi gusto daw niya fan padin ang makakasama niya for the premiere. I suddenly questioned if "FAN" talaga ako...Kasi kung cocompare sa kanya or sa ibang kakilala ko, hindi ako magaling sa HP trivia. Ni hindi ko nga maalala lahat ng spells or yun code para makapasok sa House of Gryffindor. Also, I wasn't able to reread all the books and rewatch all the films in preparation for 7.2...
But when I saw these things, I realized na, hey, I was and still am a big fan! I wouldn't have printed pictures in our school library, or use up my baon to buy this:
Movie Day: Met up with Krissy at around 4pm in Ortigas so we can claim our tickets in her friend Dewi's office. Thank you so much girls!
Had early dinner in Glorietta Food Choices...
...And had a little "show and share"! :) Krissy brought with her her Film Wizardry (a must-have! hay...pera come to me!)
I brought my high school scrapbook and Vanity Fair:
When we went up to the cinemas, line was already formed! Kinabahan kami!
We were able to get good seats though, and when we were finally settled in the 3D theater, nagstart nalang bigla yung film. I wouldn't spoil anything, but I did cried the whole time, haha. Nasesenti ako, guys! :P Good thing we were wearing 3D glasses or super obvious na luha ko haha.
I was with good company. Thank you Krissy for letting me experience a Harry Potter premiere night! It was THE BEST last date with Harry I can ever have.

I had this shirt since high school, my good friend and sister Camille gave it to me as present. Not sure if for my birthday or for Christmas, but I never threw it away kahit napaglakihan ko na. Decided to wear it again kahit hindi na ako nagbe-baby tee, just to get the "feel" of the night. When I checked myself in the mirror before leaving the house, I actually got sentimental and saw my 3rd year high school self again, the girl who wished she had Harry Potter as her promdate (haha). I saw the young Anagon who mixed her school reading materials with the JK Rowling magical series...Kahit brownout pa, kasi sabi ni Cea "Maganda yan! About school!" How time flies nga naman. *sigh*
How was your Harry Potter 7.2 experience? Did you get all sentimental like me? Did the sight of Hogwarts, old characters who are now so grown up, gave you the chills? Did these former-kids you grew up with made you sooo proud when they stood up for what they believed in? Are the fight scenes and highlights on the trio's friendship worth buckets of your tears?
It might have been the last, but as JK Rowling said: So whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.
Thank you, Harry Potter, for the magical experience. But most of all, thank you for teaching me the value of family-love, true friendship, and being brave no matter how small you are. Ending this post with these high school photos. :,)
To the boy who lived. <3
