I don’t celebrate Halloween, but I really love the pumpkin makeover…..Hehehehe….
I went to Great Eastern Mall expecting something great for the weekend. Well what do you know, there is a Halloween Celebration happening now until 1 November 2009. The concourse area is transformed into eerie stalls selling skeletons, ghoulish costumes, cobweb, Jack-o’-Lantern, cute little pumpkins, ‘Trick-or-Treat’ bags and other spooky stuffs. Check out the pictures below:
There is also a Museum of Horrors situated in the middle of the concourse and the entrance is FREE!!!..But try it only if you are really brave, coz from the sound of it, it seems very spooky (we did not enter coz my son was scared—erkk) ….anyway, give it a try if you happen to be in Great Eastern Mall this month.
I don’t know much about Halloween, but here’s a little something about it taken from When-is.com.
“The holiday of Halloween originated under the name of Samhain as a Pagan Celt festival in Ireland and Great Britain, and immigrants from these countries brought this tradition to North America. The term Halloween is shortened from All-hallow-even, as it is the evening of/before "All Hallows' Day", also known as "All Saints' Day". Today Holloween is celebrated with such traditional activities as having scary costume parties and watching horror movies. Kids go out trick-or-treating on Holloween eve.”
Ohh yer ker….ok…
So, don’t forget to drop by Great Eastern Mall if you are just nearby Jalan Jelatek in Ampang…
