Harry Potter

The Harry Potter fever is starting to get on to me...again! 2 weeks to go until the screening day of the last movie in the series.  Harry Potter has been a part of my growing up years.  I can still remember the days I spent reading all the books in the series.

I almost missed the 12mn New Year fireworks because I was engrossed reading the 1st to 3rd book.

I read the 4th book while studying for the final exams during college.

I printed a "leaked" copy of the 5th book, and took it to a photocopy center near our school to have it "hard-bound".

I took an early break from work when the 6th book was released just to make sure I am able to get a copy on the 1st day, read thru the night and cried my eyes and heart out when Dumbledore died.

I reserved a copy of the 7th book and read it in about 3-4 days because I wanted to find out how Voldemort would die (oh, yes I'm pretty sure he is the one who dies).

I watched all the movies, most of which during the 1st screening day.  I bought a lot of Harry Potter stuffs.  A lot of which I never got the chance to use.

And now the book series has ended and the final movie will be out in a few days.

Feels like a part of me is yelling, "Grow up and move on!"

Harry Potter was a part and will always be a part of my younger years.  And this is something that I deem worth sharing to my daughter and other kids to come.

Harry Potter...the Boy who Lived...see you on July 14!

My In My Womb 3d/4d Ultrasound Experience

Last Saturday, we had our 6th checkup with our OB-Gynecologist. So far, everything's ok. I passed my Glucose Challenge test, but I still need to cut on my sugar intake. We were also able to hear our little one's heartbeat. Next week I will be having my Tetanus Toxoid shot -- scary!!

After the checkup, we proceeded to Makati for our scheduled 3d4d ultrasound at In My Womb. I have heard lots of great reviews about this ultrasound center so we have decided to have our ultrasound there. Their center is located at 2f, The Link Bldg, Ayala Makati. The building is beside Landmark. Before proceeding, we had our lunch first at Ineng's Special BBQ -- great food, terrible customer service!

After eating, we then proceded to the 2nd level. We were greeted by a courteous nurse and I told her that I was scheduled for an ultrasound with Dra. Ramos. I would actually like to have the procedure done by the owner, Dra. Shiela Illescas, since i ha…

Transformation

What do you think of when you hear the word "Transformation"?

For me it means changing and evolving for the better.  But how does it really feel like when one undergoes the transformation process?  

One thing's for sure -- it is not an easy process.  When you undergo a transformation, it means going back to basics.  Unlearning what you know and accepting new ways.  Sometimes transformation can hit you pretty bad that you think it is not necessary.  But in the long run, it is always important to understand the need for such change.  You may not believe and understand it now, but at least try to give it a chance.

Sometimes hearing the word scares me.  Not because I am afraid of what it brings, but because I am too comfortable where I am now and I think any movement will cause me to fall down.  But hey, I have been through tougher times.  And I will surpass this for sure.
