Until The End

Harry Potter: "You'll stay with me?"
James Potter: "Until the end."

Last week, I watched the epic finale of the Harry Potter series: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.  I have to admit it is definitely in my top 3 Harry Potter films.  It was packed with so much action and it was definitely a great farewell to a wonderful series.

Part 2 was so much better than Deathly Hallows Part 1.  After clinging to the edge of my seat and watching the film 2 times, Part 1 was so boring compared to the last HP film.  The Battle of Hogwarts was so much fun to watch and I was practically clinging to the edge of my seat as I watched every single duel.

I teared up a little during Snape's death when I first watched.  But when I watched a second time, I cried even harder.  I've always liked Snape because no matter how he hated James, he cared for Harry because of his love for Lily. He was definitely the Slytherin that died like a Gryffindor.

Romione!  The kiss was extraordinary!  Although I did want Harry to be there watching them.  I wanted his little interruption like the one in the books.  

I did think they overdid Bellatrix's death.  They also messed up the ending when Harry broke the Elder Wand.  In the books, Harry repairs his own wand and puts the Elder wand where it's supposed to be, so if he dies a natural death, the power still remains with him.

The era has come to an end, but Harry Potter is definitely now a legend

Varekai by Cirque du Soleil

Last July 7, my family and I watched Varekai by Cirque Du Soleil.  It was amazing.  Varekai means "wherever" in Romany language.  It's definitely a show you wouldn't want to miss! 

The show was completely mind-blowing!  I was practically clinging to the edge of my seat every time the performers did their AMAZING stunts (and I mean AMAZING) with perfect timing.

After this show, I learned that there truly is perfection.  I simply applaud Cirque Du Soleil for bringing this new world of wonder to the Philippines!  I'm really blessed to have been able to watch this spectacular performance! 

Quickster Update!

It's been a pretty long time since I've been drawing digitally.  I mean, all I've been focusing on traditional art for the past few months, so I decided to make myself a new wallpaper for my laptop!  The girl in the drawing is supposed to be me, in a Hogwarts uniform.  It took me an hour just to get the hair right!
