Screaming good fun
The Halloween Fest at Ocean Park, no doubt. This is one of the biggest annual Halloween events, and it’s a real scream! I think everyone loves it.

Halloween is all about making people scream. You can dress like a ghost, zombie, witch, or any other monster you can think of. Then you wait for your friends to appear, and jump out to scare them!

A creepy cure for hiccups
Going to a haunted house is definitely the best thing about Halloween. As you walk through the creepy corridors, your heart is pumping, sweat is dripping down your forehead, and adrenaline is slowly taking over your body. And then, BAM! You never see it coming. It might even help get rid of those annoying hiccups that keep coming back.

Don’t forget to brush!
The small goodies and treats that you see every October in all the shops. Dark chocolate in the shape of ghosts, marshmallows in jumbo packets, lollipops in the form of jack-o’-lanterns ... I can’t wait! It’s too much to bear!

Lights, camera, spookiness!
The horror movies which help bring friends closer together. The best thing about watching horror movies with your friends is that you have someone to hug, and bury your face into. This year, my friends and I are going to produce our own horror/drama TV show called Key to HALAY ... and we have everything planned for it. The first episode will be filmed during Halloween and it will involve a lot of drama, creepiness and mystery, just like any old horror movie ... but it will entertain, turning important lessons into a fun, scary movie to watch.

Theme park thrills
What can be better than paying to be scared by skeletons and zombies at Ocean Park?

Bring on the sugar
Thinking of those adorable pumpkin-shaped marshmallows with runny chocolate sauce makes me drool so badly. I am so ready to feast on candies despite the potential hazards of getting diabetes and being overweight.

’Tis better to give than to receive
The best thing about Halloween isn’t getting candy, it’s giving them – and scaring kids off in the process by screaming at the top of your lungs and jumping out at them. It’s great to spread some of that spooky spirit.

Come on. Do your worst!
Haunted houses! What else? Some people freak out when a balloon pops beside their ears, but I’m not like that. Instead, I love haunted houses. The blood, the spiderwebs and skeletons – not to mention the impending sense of doom. It just gets me amped up. Oh gosh, I think I might have found a serial killer inside me.

During Halloween, I really like staying at home, going on social media and sifting through all the posts from my friends who are out celebrating. Pumpkins and zombies are not my thing, but I can always live vicariously through all the Harley Quinns out there this year.
