Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallow Part 1

I sit alone at the corner spot of The coffee bean & Tea leaf, trying to gather my thoughts with a glass of caramel ice blended and a ham & cheese pandesal in front of me. My hands are shaking and my heart beats so fast as if I just got the effect of caffeine when I haven't even taken a sip of my caramel ice blended. I feel so warm and my brain can't think right. I felt numb all over my body when I ordered my drink just now. I couldn't even mention my order correctly. I thought I was about to get a heart attack or something. These all happened to me because I just came out of a cinema. I just finished watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow Part 1.

I know you think I'm ridiculous.  Unless you are a big Potter fan like me and have watched the movie, only then you would understand why I'm like this. My hands are still trembling by the way. I am still struggling to compose myself and type this post even when my iPad touch keypad is big enough for my fingers. I am trying my best to calm my self down by slowly chewing my ham & cheese pandesal and take a sip of my caramel ice blended.

I'm supposed to write a review of this movie for this post, but honestly, I AM SPEECHLESS. I wanted to tell you how the movie was but what comes out from my mouth is just aaaaaa....uuuuuu.....aaaaa....gaaagaaa...

I definitely lost words to describe the movie. That movie has just blown me away!  
I tried to just write it slowly, taking my own time while calming myself down. 
And the first thing that came out of my mind was thanking The Lord for giving me the opportunity to live through the Potter era. I thank Lord for giving the world J.K. Rowling and her wonderful imagination that she shared with us. I have gone through so many ups and down in my life, happy and sad moments in life, moving house from one country to another, and I am very...very grateful that I have always been lucky to be able to follow the magical journey of Harry Potter in books and in movies. I have always had a personal connection with him and his magical world through these years. 

The feeling that I had when I sat in the cinema half an hour before the movie started, is very hard to describe. As the movie started with the very familiar tune, my brain was rewinding itself to the first moment of my encounter with the most famous wizard boy. I had trouble concentrating to the movie because my brain was busy presenting me flashes of my memories I have kept since the day I watched the 1st movie of Harry Potter, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's stone, 10 years ago. I actually had to wear my sunglasses in the darkness to keep my eyes focus to the movie playing in front of me. I am sure those who sat next to me wondering there must be something wrong with my eyes... :)  

Oh God...I'm supposed to write the review about Part 1 of the last installment of Harry Potter movies, right? But I believe you don't even have to read my review to decide whether you should watch this movie or not when you have read how my body reacted after I finished watching that movie. Anyway, just in case you still want to know what I think about that movie, I have. one word to say about that movie: SPECTACULAR! 
There...I am finally  calm the same time I finished my ham & cheese pandesal together with my caramel ice blended... :)
I hope I will be lucky again to be able to watch the last & final installment of the Harry Potter saga.
