Halloween is about scary, freaky and candies but it’s just another weekend for me and I guess to everyone here in Penang, reason is Halloween is just not our culture. There’s a lot of Halloween competition in the malls, I should say it’s fancy dress plus make up competition more. It’s to see who has got the gory make up and dress of all.
To me, the Hungry Ghost Month is scarier and more happenings because at least there’s the Chinese getai, concert-by-the-street. What I was expecting for Halloween was actually some horror movie like Saw 6 and Phobia 2. Saw series are always not available in our local cinema because of the gory scene, so I am waiting for the DVD anxiously. Phobia 2 was freaking good, I watched it 2 days ago and shockingly love it all.
So my Halloween weekend was at Queensbay Mall in the afternoon and went out for a steamboat gathering at night. I went to watched Michael Jackson’s This Is It at noon time with Alvin and Chien Chern. You will like it if you are MJ’s fan, I like it.
After the movie, I went walking around the mall. It had been a while that I didn’t go to Queensbay Mall but till then, shops at Queensbay Mall are still not so interesting. I felt that malls in Penang are not-cool after visiting to KL’s Pavilion or Singapore’s ION @ Orchard which is the best to me at the moment.
Then I saw those Halloween’s Costume Competition’s contestant roaming around the mall, for fashion show and tricks and treats.
Pretty interesting with their look. They looked cute to me. Thai’s horror has still got the best make up. =D Phobia 2!
Some of them were dancing zombies. They had their little in-mall street dance battle with no music. Though, I saw no MJ’s Thriller, it would be very cool if there is.
After spending a little time walking the mall, found out that it’s boring, I went to Borders to join Chien Chern and tall guy Fangs for a little bit of reading. I brought Biology book along with me.
Starbucks in Borders were so full of people on that day. Mostly college students, it gets noisy sometimes and afterall, I still prefer reading out at Jing Si’s Books and Cafe on Beach Street. It’s quieter and extremely low price beverage.
Zuanfu, Shaun and Foong.
Shaun, Foong and Zuanfu came to join us later in the afternoon. They weren’t here for books but to hop on into my car to go to town together because we had a class gathering on that night.
Tall guy Fangs and Chien Chern.
Trying to be cool. Haha.
