Harry Potter and the Cursed Child… don’t judge me.


Hello there !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here .

I got my pre- ordered Harry Potter book  ” Harry Potter and the Cursed Child ” two weeks ago. DSCN2592

This is not a novel …. rather, it is a script for a play  published in book form, and because it is a script,  the reader will not get to read  any description of  the world of witches and wizards.  Nevertheless, the magic is still there, and the plotline is just as amazing  as the parent story…. like, who would have thought…. well, never mind, you can check out Wiki, the story is written there in great detail.

Although I love the story,  (  there is no HP book that I don’t love) there is one aspect in the plot that I find  troublesome. What is that, you ask .  It is the character development  of  Harry Potter, et al, which I find a  bit off.  After seven books, and reading each book at least two or three times, I would think  I already know Harry”s character  , inside and out.  There is just no way he would  be capable of telling his own flesh and blood, ” I wish you weren’t my son.”  So many people died because of their love for Harry, so , why Ms. Rowling ?  Why make him utter such horrible words  to his own son ?

I have 2 or more complaints but I don’t  want to spoil you. Oh, wait, there is one other thing that is worth noting.  Did Lord Voldemort ever get some romantic love , or  did he die a zero ?  Bellatrix  Lastrange loved him to death, and she did cling to him like a leech. (  I’m imagining it now…. Eeeeew !  lol )

Anyway, I wrote ” don’t judge me ” in the title of this post. Why ?

Here’s why…….


.HP’s wand … I bought it at  Disneyland  for $50 on July 4.

We have the complete HP books already,


but  I gifted myself last Christmas  with this…..



.And when I was in London….


I confess. I’m a Potterhead.  Please don’t judge me.  \(^_^)/

It’s a Banana plant !

Okay,  I’m blogging again. You’re wondering what this is all about…. a banana plant ?

Well, it’s a long story, but I’ll make it short.  Two bloggers  annoyed me , and I just cannot stay silent. I will not mention the names of their blogsites, but I know some of my readers had been there, and LIKED  the post.

So , what is it all about ?  This blogger  wrote about him being in a jungle somewhere in South America, and  told a story about being attacked by a snakelike reptile that was ready to devour him.


Above photo is his.

So I was like,  Eh?  This is a joke, right. But , the  stupid me responded with ” Uhm, that’s a banana plant, and that purple ” head” hanging is eaten as a vegetable. Now, if that was a joke,  he should have responded with something like , I’m not serious…. of course, that’s a banana plant. ”  Then I would just scratch my head and say, Oooops.  But no, this was his response, to quote…… ” You are bananas. It was moving and the head alone is 25 cm. long. The mouth was opening and closing in regular intervals. Bananas don’t do that. Also , bananas are yellow.”, close quote.

Then another commenter  also responded to me ( and I’ve been reading this guy , )and occassionaly,  he writes a comment here on my blogiste )  , and it oozed with sarcasm…. “You eat these things like vegetables ? You guys are tough.”

Then I responded to him … ”  we have banana trees at our backyard back in the Philippines, and bananas are roadside plants  over there. ”

And he replied.. ” Are they peaceful in the Philippines? ”

Now maybe I’m just  effing dense, but I know mockery and sarcasm when I hear it.

And I . can’t .  let. it. slide. So I commented there again and posted a picture of a banana plant, and added,” they are peaceful in the Philippines.”

Here is a freakin’ banana plant…..


We’re in a Freakin’ Twilight Zone

Renxkyoko Iglesias here, Hello !

I am sure  some of you have seen and watched this video that I’ve posted here. Normally, I wouldn’t post such  a video, because in the first place, I myself do not know what to make of this, but this is an interesting and abnormal  time,  so …….

Anyway,  do watch if you haven’t yet.  It’s Bill  Maher’s  outrageous  political pitch for  THE NOTORIOUS  H.R.C.  Warning:  mind the graphic and colorful language.  My folks and I cringed , but it did bring the Iglesias  household down, on the floor, laughing our ass*s  off.



Maher’s exposition sounds bad,  but I find it hilarious.  Sometimes, the way to fight  out- of- this- world accusations  is to own it.  (  Filipinos used to be called  Flips here in the US. So, Filipinos  fought  it by calling themselves Flips….. the racist name calling  stopped.  )  Sweet Grandma Hillary……  Trump, the lying, con man  Tweeter warrior  has nothing on you.

By the way, Tim Kaine, her VP, did  missionary  work with the Jesuits and stayed in Latin America for 2 years, and that’s where he learned to speak fluent Spanish…… he was also a civil rights lawyer for 17 years.  So, yeah, Hillary pals around with Lucifer.

This is all for now.  Thank you for reading.

My Head’s Spinning

Hello !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here.


I’ve been watching the Democratic National Convention  these last few days, parts of which have been recorded by my mother for when I get back from work..  I cannot miss this…. this is  a historical  first, at least in the US, that a woman is nominated for POTUS  by a major political party.

We were invited to a ” party ” at HC’s  campaign HQ  this evening, and I assume this is to listen to HC’s acceptance speech, and to  hip hip  hurrah  with fellow supporters.   I  RSVP’d  for my parents who are coming, and I wish I could go, but I have work.

I have to leave in a minute….but before I leave, I’m giving you a link, and I  hope you can read  Helen and Margaret ‘s  post. This summarizes what I feel about  Hillary’s  rival.

It’s HERE.

Bye for now.


Criminal Minds

Hi !  Renxkyoko Iglesias here .


I have  been binge-watching Criminal Minds these last few weeks, and plan to watch all 11 seasons of the show. I’m now on Season 3 , Ep.15.  Each season  has at least 23 episodes. In other words , I have already watched 61  episodes.


Criminal Minds is a police procedural crime drama that focuses on profiling the ” unsub ” or the unidentified subject, the person who commits the crime, rather than the crime itself.  There are always 7  ” behavioral analysts at any one time  that work  at  FBI’s  BAU or Behavioral Analysis Unit based in Quantico..  Check out Wikipedia for the general synopsis.

To those who watch CM……. have you ever wondered why there’s a special jet that fly these profilers to any place in the US  ( even to Mexico )  anytime their assistance is requested ?  Are they the only people working as profilers in the whole USA ?

My professor in Advanced Forensics  says yes.  He even suggests that  anyone planning to  take up Forensics Psychology as a profession  might want to change his/her major, because , guess what, the federal  government has only one or two positions available  for forensic psychologist. States don’t employ forensic psychologists, nor, for that matter, profilers.  That’s why  there’s one episode  where the 7 FBI behavioral analysts from Quantico  get a call from LAPD to assist them in tracking a serial killer. And this is LA we’re talking about, folks. So, it is true,  California  does not have its own profilers.

I have a crush on Dr. Spencer Reid,  the geek/nerd /genius in the team.  He’s  thin, always has that disheveled look,  shy,  awkward…… my kind of guy. ^^”    Spencer Reid

Oh,  and please, please, please, wish me luck.  I submitted my resume  2 weeks ago for the position of Criminalist 1, an entry level position that is now available in our city’s  law enforcement HQ.  Actually, I applied last year yet, but there was no opening.  I was told  though I’d be notified  when there’s a position available, and  got a notification last month, thank you very much. .  I’m sure there are dozens and dozens of applicants that appplied, but I hope, they are all like me, with no experience ( after all , it’s only for Criminalist 1 or  another name, Forensic Science analyst ),  and I hope they will consider me  because I have 2 degrees  that are relevant to the profession,  Cell and Molecular Biology and Forensics Biology.   I’m going to pray to all the saints in heaven because this is my dream job. * ponders * But what if I didn’t get the job….  does it mean, the holy saints rejected my prayers ?  TT_TT

This is all for now.  Thank you for reading.

Answer to puzzle and other stuff

Hello ! Renxkyoko  Iglesias  here .

Something’s wrong with me.  It’s just 3  days since my last post, and before that, 2 days.  And here I am again !


The reason I’m posting again is ….. well, I want to give the  answer to the puzzle  that I posted  last time.  I don’t want to keep some people hanging. Heh.  ^^

So, anyway, here’s  the answer.  Where’s the iPhone ?


It took a lot of time to draw it, y’know.  My masterpiece.  Check out the original photo.  It’s easy to see coz it’s waving at you.

Cheryl  Wright  has sent me a set of questions ( Liebster Award ) and I’ve decided to answer them here. Thanks, Cheryl !

What inspired the name of your blog ?

Renxkyoko’s  Space…… Ren and Kyoko are the names of the main protagonists of what used to be my favorite manga, Skip Beat.

How long does it usually take you to write a blog post ?

Depends…….  if there are photos, it takes a few hours. Otherwise, 2 to 3 hours, with long breaks in between.

Can you write anytime or do you need to be in the mood.

I need to be in the mood.

What Social Media platforms do you use to promote your blog post ?

Just one……. WordPress

What punctuation mark best describes you ?

Half – full

If there were no Internet, would you still be writing ?

No,  I’d be reading instead…… not just manga….. you’d be surprised at what books I read. I’m a freakin’ walking encyclopedia, so much so that I can give correct Jeopardy  answers  90% of the time.  ( I’m bad at questions about old, old American TV shows. I don’t even watch the current ones. )  I read books on Archaelogy,  History, and currently reading Calculus for Idiots.

When was the last time you wrote a handwritten letter ?

Last Christmas, I sent out  real Christmas cards to relatives and friends, with short handwritten notes.

Have you ever met in person a blogger that you are following ?

Uhm……..   When I was on vacation in the Philippines in 2010,  I wanted to meet this Filipino blogger……… he declined.   It was clear I was totally rejected,  ~_~  .     Oh, well, his loss.  T.T

Okay , this is all for now.   And check out my  manga/anime blog HERE.





Where’s It ?

Renxkyoko Iglesias  here.  Hello, hello.

Maybe you’d exclaim, ” What ! Ren, is that you ?  A post after 2 days ? ”

I know , I know ! !  I post once a month, so this is rather  awkward, isn’t it ?

So, okay,  I saw this on the Internet and  I just have to share this with you, guys.  Well, my thoughts have been rather intense   and deep these past few days,  so I thought I could divert  that intensity to something light and fun, like this one.

A girl from the Philippines posted this on Facebook,  Jeya May  Cruz is her name….. said she couldn’t sleep,  so maybe out of boredom,  she put her iPhone on the carpet and asked readers to look for it  in the image .

So, for fun, can you find the iPhone  on the carpet ?  Check out how long it took you to find it ( if you found it ^^ ), and  post a comment here.  No spoilers, please, just  write the time.  Game?
