After several weeks of waiting, I finally got my third letter from Pottermore. The one stating that my account is finally ready and I can enter the site. Pottermore is set to open to all on October but there are a few who can enter it earlier during the beta phase.
I quickly logged in and explored the site. There are still a lot of changes to be done. I also took part in making a few suggestions, some already voiced out by other students.
Chapter to chapter I viewed all the stories and awesome artworks, when finally I got to the sorting hat. I was excited and nervous as to where the hat will put me. I have been believing I'm in Gryffindor for 10 years. So here I was, answering all the questions truthfully and the results came out. RAVENCLAW!
I was lost for words! Why oh why did I got sorted to Ravenclaw? The house where they say only the wittiest and brightest witches and wizards come from. Shocked, I continued anyway. If the sorting hat put me there, then I just let it be.
I explored further and began practicing on potions and spells. They weren't that easy haha. Anyways, Pottermore is a great site but I know it'll be greater when it opens in October. ;)

As the last Harry Potter film is nearing its release date, fans from around the world have been given something new to look forward to. When owls started appearing on the JKR Announces Youtube channel, people patiently awaited the day the video is released. Opinions were expressed among millions of fans as to what it might be. Some said that it can be an online game or another book. J.K. Rowling announced on June 23, 2011, her newest project called Pottermore.
She shares that it will a new and exciting way to enjoy online reading, community interaction and even discovering HP secrets she has kept throughout the years. There is nothing more that I can say about it since the announcement appears a little vague to me. But one thing's for sure, it will be something worth waiting for.
If you want to join Pottermore, you can submit your emails as early as today and come back on July 31, 2011 to know if you can be part of the group to experience it earlier than the rest. Official opening of the whole site is said to take place on October.

March 7, 2006. A date which seemed to be just yesterday; and now here I look back and realize that it was already five years ago. But the feeling never faded nor changed, it just grew stronger. For a hopeless romantic like me, I considered it extreme luck (or even fate) to have met my boyfriend, Ervin. Each of us has a different view on what a perfect lover is, but to me, he is everything I always wanted. :)

Among the many activities we've done over the weekend, this was probably the most frightful yet exciting one for me. :D That's me and Bibin ♥ scuba diving at Maxima Aqua Fun in Samal. This is the first time we've done this and we're kinda having second thoughts if we're gonna do it again. It was really scary at first but I got to adjust somehow. Not to mention that the blue color in the background led to a seemingly bottomless pit of doom! We can only see the blue shade and we couldn't see where it leads or how deep it was. Still, it was super duper FUN! I loved it! ♥

Bibin and I had an unplanned excursion last Saturday with Brail and Cez to Crocodile Park and People's Park. It was perfect to go there since Bibin used their car. The shot above is at PPark and one of my favorite shots done by Cez.

2010 was a year full of assorted memories, from good to bad, lame to exciting. There's a lot to be thankful and sad for everything that has happened in the past year, including:
- Zhu Xian Online closed down
- ingame wars turned personal
- Dobby died.. XD
- celebrated our 4th anniversary ♥
- even though ZX closed, I realized that the friendship I made with Lotus stretched far outside the game
- had the coolest boss, sir Matt ;)
- discovered the realms of Heroes of Three Kingdoms and Battle of Immortals
- co-owned a PSP with bf ♥
- had a new netbook
- BF was introduced to my extended family as well - aunts, uncles, cousins - and they liked him! ♥
In a nutshell, I loved 2010! The bad things that happened are of little importance and impact in contrast to the good ones. Thanks for a great year Lord! God bless us all! :D
