Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

So I got my wife's copy of Harry Potter's seventh and final book from Best Eastern (The Mall Branch) today at exactly 14:07. It costs B$49.95 for the hard cover. There are no soft cover for sale but will arrive shortly in the next few days. This book have only 607 pages which is shorter
than The Order of The Phoenix at 766 pages. Being a slow reader, I think I'll complete reading this in no less than 30 days.

Spoiler Warning! Do not continue reading down this post. You have been warned!

The 'adult' version of the hard cover.

This is me reading in my car. Hermione, you naughty girl!

Do not try to read and drive! Ask someone to read it for you.

On page 140 Harry tried to adjust his glasses.

More spoilers here:
Harry, Ron and Hermione walk and talk about stuff on page 302.
Dumbledore tried to contact Harry through his dreams on page 503
Fred and George says 'Hi' to Ron on page 271
Harry ask Professor Snape for advice on page 59
Harry says 'Hi' to Cho Chang on page 491

Fishing Time

This is a different post from my previous ones. Today I'm going fishing with my wife at the Penanjong Beach Tutong. I'm not really a fan of fishing mainly because it is a very frustrating not to get any catch after a long period of time. But sometimes it's fun when you get something out of it. Today we didn't get any. Like getting fish that you've never seen before. I never knew the names of some fish.

Me setting up the thingy.

My wife strike a pose.

Continuously exposing yourself to the gusty winds of the seashore can result in a very unpleasant appearance which makes you look like Beakman. Hairspray not included.
