i don't think anyone really understands my love for Harry Potter.
yes, i'm 23+ years old.
yes, i'm a working person already.
yes, i'm not a child.
i know, i know.
but i grew up reading the books. i learnt English by reading the books.
i grew to know that love between friends is just as important as love with our family.
i grew to understand the right things to do are not always the easiest.
i learnt about the power of will.
oh gosh.. banyak la sampai nak nangis kalau i write it all up! hehe!
so when i went to UK with my cousins, i had the amazing opportunity to go to HARRY POTTER'S LAST MOVIE PREMIERE! ok just the red carpet la. i didn't watch the movie then. ish. sabar la.
cuppa tea in Trafalgar Square anyone?
see this red/yellow scarfed person with pencil-eyeliner-ed scar on the forehead? well, it's my forehead, and that Gryffindor scarf, i knitted it myself. ohhh yeaaahhh. muahahaha!
see that sea of crowd? see their flags? we're fans from all over the world! =D
see that ginger-haired boy?
that's my bebeh Rupert Grint.
see that gorgeous pixie-haired bebeh?
that's my bebeh Emma Watson.
see that blonde mamasita?
that's my hero (apart from Mama & Abah).
The Woman Who Changed My Life.
that's my bebeh, JK Rowling.
it was such an amazing experience!!
nevermind the number of smelly people pushing through trying to grab the Harry Potter casts that walked past us, nevermind the rain, cold and having to stand up for more than 6 hours, nevermind being surrounded by people who looked at us as if we're some crazy bunch of people without anything better to do.
never mind all that!
because what matters to me is that Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Professor Dumbledore, Professor Snape, Voldemort and all the amazing people in Harry Potter books, were just one arm stretch away from me. can't have that anywhere else kan. =p
and what touched me the most, was this:
OLOLOLOOOO!!! sweet nya kau Rupert Grint and Emma Watson!
they were getting all emotional about the last movie and separating and stuff. i can understand la how that feels..
even i cried ok! hehe!
so that's me with my bebeh Daniel Radcliffe on the screen behind moi.
and yes, that is a vaseline lotion i was holding so dearly in my hand.
now, i don't know if there were any other Malaysians in the crowd other than my cousins and myself, but i know, i'm one hardcore Harry Potter fan.
Sekian, terima kasih JK Rowling.
for my childhood.
ps: i am still wearing the HP band! teeheee!
