This Is Not About Alakazam

Alohomora! I just have opened my blog this noon so let me say "hi" to all of you :D Today, I want to share some information about Harry Potter. Yes, I'm addicted to those novels and movies. Awesome and incredible, good job for the author, J.K. Rowling. I appreciate her great imagination to make this magic story, to make all the wizard characters, and for the spells for sure :D Yes, magic world is similar to the spells. The common spells that we usually hear like "alakazam", "abrakadabra", or 'hocus pocus' are nothing compared to those spells created by J.K. Rowling. FYI, Rowling really think before she makes it. Some of the spells are based on Spain-language and Greek o_o Well, just check the list of the spells below :) Enjoy!

Sudden Circus Show

Hello there! I'm home alone now and nothing interest here. I came home early because today is exam day (until two weeks later) in my school. Well, I want to share about me and my classmates did two days ago, a day before the beginning of exam day :)

That day is Tuesday. After we did some accounting task and heard about the history lesson (actually I read novel below my table :b). Then, we went to computer laboratory and got nothing. With a lazy faces, we went back to the class, but some boys stayed on canteen. Skip and skip! I forgot some parts on that day hehehehe ;b The main part of this story or this posting is the boys in my class. They usually played cards behind the class and cursed each other (boys...-_-) I was reading the novel while the noise began behind the class. I tried to find the case and voila! The boys became a group of sudden circus :p hehehehhe. Check these out :D
