Rainy days with ZsaZsa Zaturnnah


Finally finished Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at exactly 2:37 this morning amidst a really heavy downpour!. Yeah, the rain must had added a gloomy thing there because even when it was a beautiful sunny day during Dumbledore's last rites, it brought tears to my eyes. I was dissappointed it ended so abruptly. Hmm.. how long now do we had to wait for the 7th book?!?! I'm re-reading it again though (as i always do with all HP books).

Another one that I've started to read again (for the nth time) is Ang Kagila-gilalas na Pakikisapalaran ni ZsaZsa Zaturnnah by Carlo Vergara (wait..I'm trying to think of an ample english title for that..!). It is a graphic novel (so that's what they call 'comics' nowadays!) which won the Manila Critics' Circle National Book Award for Best Comic Book (was that in 2002 or 2003?!?!). ZsaZsa is a spoof and affectionate homage to Philippine superheroine and cultural icon, Darna. For rainy days like this I would really need a laugh (what I got was a tummy-ache! the book was soooo hilarious!) It's reeaally a great read! (hmmm....smells of nepotism here...LOL)

Btw, since it seems like it's taking forever for Regal Films to release the movie version, Tanghalang Pilipino will stage a musical of Ang Kagila-gilalas na Pakikisapalaran ni ZsaZsa Zaturnnah next year, Feb-March 2006! Don't want to miss that!!!
