Some Potter News

This blog is starting to grow some cobwebs! Sorry about that! But anyway, what better way to clean up than by posting about my favoritest topic in the whole entire universe?

Always: A Decade of PHP MagicSo a lot of Potter-y things have happened the past few weeks. The most special being Hogwarts Philippines’ 10th Anniversary Ball held at AIM Conference Center in Makati last February 25, 2012. Yes, there’s an actual Harry Potter community in the Philippines. No, it’s not official. But yes, it’s still awesome and probably as official as official can ever get. 😉

I blogged about the hilarious happenings of that night over at my personal site. Head on over there to check it out!

Also, if you’re not already part of the family, get your butt to the forums and sign up to be sorted! You can also find us on Facebook: here (official fanpage) and here (group). Hope to see you around the castle! 😀

J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter seriesOn to international Potter news — did you hear the one about J.K. Rowling not being a billionaire anymore? According to The Telegraph, J.K. went from being worth an estimated amount of $1 billion in 2011 to less than that this year, with the bulk of her assets (reportedly $160 million of it) going to charity and taxes.

Although this seems rather shocking, I honestly don’t think this matters to her, given that she didn’t even think Potter would be as successful as it is today. Plus, she gave the money to charity! What’s a couple million dollars if it’s for a good cause?

Let’s now move on to other Potter-y things we can expect in the future!
