Microsoft Bug and Harry Potter Craze.

Short Note: Almost forgot. Happy Mooncake Festival everyone!! :D


Argh~~!!! I hate formatting my pc!!

Argh~~~!!!!!! I hate the fact that I NEED to format my pc!!

Argh~~~~!!!!!! I hate spywares!! I hate virus!! I hate Microsoft bug that comes with XP service pack 2 which keep crashing my internet connection!!!!

It's been two days without proper internet access and I feel that part of my limbs are amputated day by day, a slow yet painful tormentment!


ON the bright side. I finally finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!!!

Yeah~~~ After a week of half-hermit, I finally finished the damn book! J.K.Rowling is a mad woman!!! She's mad!!! Absolute nutter!

She can twist your mind, especially towards the ending of the book, so much it almost drived me up the wall following the story.

Ahh... in some ways, I felt relieved, and yet empty. 10 YEARS of pursuit!! Since the first book of Harry Potter, this finally marked the journey of my teenage-hood.

How I used to hide underneath blankets and not seen sun lights for days; immerse in a world of wizardry and magic; and how the unforgivable curses gave me excitements everytime Harry try to chant it; how I secretly adore Albus Dumbledore and his crooked nose and that piercing blue eyes; and how Severus Snape finally caught my admiration in the end.

And now, all those believes, the fantasy, the one escape I can always hope for and depend on when life's too tough, end. Gone.

Or at least, till the day I start flipping the first page of Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone again. Oh yes I will. Unless Rowling decides one day to write the follow-up stories about the descendants of Harry, a total different story, but the same world, the same dream.

Alrighty~~ Next book.

  1. I know how you feel. I had to format my pc last month. It got infected by a nifty little virus from a questionable audio software suite after I hit the keygen button. It evaded the antivirus for a few days because it wasn't complete. Everytime I'd go on the net, it would download parts to complete itself. Then one fine day all hell broke loose.

    But everything's cool now; sun's shining, birds chirping and I'm web surfing...again.
