The Half-Blood Prince
By looking at the title you must have already know what I’m going to blog about.
Yep, last night Andrew and I went for a movie. He wanted to watch The Taking of Pelham 123, but I wanted to watch Harry Potter. Well, Andrew said he didn’t mind to watch Harry Potter. So, Harry Potter that is. :) Gosh, I got a shock when the ticketing fella told us the price, RM24 for 2 tickets!!! Geezzzzzz…… Okay, it’s my fault, that I forgot Harry Potter was just on the big screen last week! Should have watched the other movie first.
After we bought the ticket, there was still a 45-minute time to spare. I was craving for KFC since 2 days ago when the OLD hot & spicy flavour was back. Haha. Off we went to KFC. When we were in the line, I saw a guy which looked kind of familiar. Then, something came to my mind and I shot Andrew a is-it-him look! Affirmative, it was him!!! It was Qi (it is only now I remember his name, I forgot about his name last night when I saw him)! Qi is the host to few of local TV shows, such as Destinasi Bajet and Field Trip. Recently he starred in a new TV drama, Blogger Boy, as Budi. He isn’t really a famous artist, yet. That’s why not many would recognise him on the street. Andrew and I could recognise him as we had watched few of Destinasi Bajet before and we kind of love the way he presented in the show. And the recent drama Blogger Boy on 8TV, we do watch it too. :D Surprised that I support local production? Don’t, ’cause I’ve been watching local productions all this while. Another thing worth to mention, Qi wasn’t alone. He was holding hand with this girl. When I took a good look, gosh, that girl is also one of the cast in Blogger Boy! They’re so in love! LOL!
Back to Harry Potter. :) Well, I wouldn’t go into the details of the movie. I am very disappointed with the movie. It’s lengthy, too much conversations and I would say, it’s somewhat boring. The focus was on the romance of Harry and Ron and Hermione. To me, it’s like watching a teenage movie, no longer all magickal and mysteries. The fun and magic in Harry Potter the movie are waning. There’s no surprises anymore. But, I did get a few good laughs from the movie, when Ron did or said those silly things. :)
I’ve seen people said the book is much more insteresting and there were a few good scenes weren’t in the movie. I’m not a big fan of Harry Potter, and I have never had the faintest interest in reading the books. One of the reason being, I know there would be a movie, I know to go into the cinema after you’ve read the books is not at all a good idea. So, I’d rather skip the books and wait for the movie. However, for this time, I’d say it’s disappointed me. Anyway, not to dwell more in the disappointment of it. Some people out there still think that it’s a great movie though. :) Individual preferences, again.
Ok. That’s it. Enough of Potter.
I’m so excited now, going to Singapore this evening. I’m going with Wan Yi, well, more of like following her since she’s going back home. Andrew isn’t going with me, he has yet to renew his passport and he has to work during the weekend. It’s ok, as long as I’ve got Wan Yi, I don’t mind travelling without him. LOL!
I’m sorry that I have not put up any photos from last weekend. I have been busy and tried to get some rest by reading some books. So sorry.
