...About Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.

image from here
Having fallen asleep while watching the Half-Blood Prince, I went to watch this one with an open heart and mind bearing no expectations.

I have to say, I'm quite impressed with this one. It stayed true to the book as much as it could. I didn't go "Hey they didn't put the part where...!" There are some scenes that weren't exactly potrayed in the book that were actually given an individual scene in the movie, which I think was a nice touch. Example, the part where Hermione wiped her parents memory, it only got mentioned in the book, not exactly pictured, but they had a scene of it in the movie. But obviously people who didn't read the book would have no idea what she did when she went "Obliviate".

In fact, if you didn't read the book, you would have no idea what most of the spells were! The action scenes were good, not as good as an action movie of course, but it was a good transition from book to screen.

I seriously think non-readers will have a hard time relating all the movies together. Some scenes were not portrayed in the movies because it did not seem vital, but turned out to be important further along the way in the later books. So yeah, some people will be lost.

When Dobby died, I don't think non-readers understood how attached Harry was to the house-elf, simply because it didn't show in the movie.

I wondered at which part the movie was going to end. I think it ended on a nice note, an appropriate scene.

All in all, it was definitely worth the watch. Go ahead and watch, this one is not a disappointment.

...About Sugar Fix

What's your sugar fix? Your ultimate sugar fix. One that you swear by to go on a sugar high but will surely give you diabetes.

This is mine.


I once ate a bar of this a few years back cos I needed the energy to study for an exam. I was bouncing off the walls the whole night til exam time. SERIOUS T_T

There's bullshit, there's serious shit and there's just plain shit. This is SERIOUS SHIT. (I have no idea who the hell came up with that phrase)

This lil bar of heaven used to be my piece of luxury back at school, it costs almost RM4 for one bar! That's like 2 days of lunch money ok, so I didn't get to it have as often as I like.

Now, it's so hard to get it. Seriously, they don't have it at any old super market. In fact I found it while I wasn't looking for it. I went into the store at a Shell station looking for some snack, and there it was on top of the rack, all golden and shiny.
