Angelo said...

Ghee: Hey Ghee, thanks we're good here. I never heard of or felt any earthquake here, it was probably minor if anything?

I saw the first showing at midnight today, but I saw the actors outside the theatre during the NY premiere which was last week. I liked it the movie, but my die-hard fan of a friend said it was the worst HP movie ever. Let me know how you like it Ghee!

Puss-in-Boots said...

You've already seen the Harry Potter move!!! I'm sooo envious...lol!

Welcome to the world to the newest member of your family. So, is that a boy or a girl, name please. I dunno, Angelo, you're very short on details here, I'm a woman who likes to know all those things...grin.

So that's the Brooklyn Bridge...I have read so much about it in books, police chases over it, murders under it...you get my drift. Anyway, it's good to see what it actually looks like so I can picture it in future.

Enjoy your trip...

Angelo said...

Puss-in_Boots: Hey Robyn, sorry, I always skimp on the details hehe... She's my cousin's newest, her name is Leila.

Ya that's the Brooklyn Bridge, don't forget all the suicides!

Cheers Robyn!

Hi, Angelo. Congratulations for the newest member in the family...

I like your viewpoint of the Brooklyn and the Manhattan Bridge.

I also like the bonus photo. I wonder how did those die-hard fans make it without infuriating the police :)

You're lucky to have seen those Harry Potter casts in person. I wish I can watch this movie this weekend together with my wife...

Angelo said...

lucas: Hey Luke, enjoy it on the weekend then. And it'll happen when it's meant to happen I guess...

dodong flores: Thanks Dodong, ya I was surprised the cops didn't do anything coz they were standing just a few feet away from the car... I guess they were busy ensuring security for the stars?

Mel said...

How's the movie? Did you like the 6th installment? I'm gonna watch Ice Age 3 pa lang tom. Haha. A warm welcome for the cutesy baby in your family. The baby is a girl, right?

Whoa! Those HP fanatics were unstoppable. Lucky for you to catch a glimpse (and even took their pictures) of them - the HP celebrities.

Angelo said...

Mel: Hey Mel, I liked the movie. I never really followed HP, but now I'm excited to see the last installment. I heard they will split the last book into two movies so that they don't skimp on the details. Enjoy Ice Age 3, I only saw the first one and I don't even remember it anymore :)

Thanks and yup she's a girl. And ya crazy fans, I would've gotten better shots but once one of the stars got close, it turned into a battle.

Shoshana said...

Wow! I would have loved to be there with my daughter and watch her go crazy over Harry Potter!

I haven't seen the movie...maybe later on tonight.

I like your bridge pictures. Angles and all that.

Hey Angelo,
Are you still in NY? Hope the city hasn't stressed you out. Guess what's the new arrival in NY besides the new baby in your family? - Canada's Tim Hortons!

LDL said...

Great pics...

Angelo said...

Shoshana: Hey Shosh, I'm sure your daughter would've enjoyed herself. You can see the excitement on the faces of all those little girls. Enjoy the movie!

Nomadic Pinoy: Hey Nomad, yup still here and nope this city doesn't stress me out... I enjoy the movement. I'm even getting the hang of the subway which has always been my nemesis.

Ya my friend told me about Timmy's! I had brought her two tins of Tim Horton's coffee as pasalubong, but now she can get it right here in Manhattan. I'm going to have to walk over to Lexington and 95th for a large double double!!

LDL: thanks...
