Happy Halloween! | October 29, 2008

My previous blog was supposed to speak about childhood dreams and aspirations but (somehow) I lost control and it (suddenly) got serious (and I liked it better).  I’ll try again and, hopefully, i won’t veer off my chosen topic.

When I was growing up I have always dreamed of going to the US to, among other things, go apple picking, visit Disneyland, experience Cable TV and go trick or treating on Halloween.  I’ve heard and read about these things and I wanted to personally experience what they are about.

Thinking about it, I realized that my childhood wishes already came true.  Well, not all, but most of it. 

Cable Television came to our teensy weensy town while I was in college and I became hooked.  Still am.  A couple of years ago, Disneyland HK opened so Mickey came closer to home.  Although I’m yet to pay him a visit, a visa is no longer an issue so it’s just a matter of time.  Although I still want to experience apple picking, I can live without it.

I don’t know when, how and where it started but, if you’ll look around, you’ll notice that Filipinos have already embraced the Halloween tradition.  The Halloween mania is already all over the malls, schools, offices, subdivisions and villages.  Kids are now donning Halloween costumes to go trick or treating.  Although I can no longer wear the costumes that I used to dream about (lest I end up looking like a porn star, hehehe, ask “D”), I’m still happy and excited that Halloween is finally here. 

A few hours ago we received the village’s Halloween Party Notice/Invitation.  According to the invite, it’s gonna be a “Freaky Friday” Halloween Party so I bet the kids are going to have lots of fun.  I’m so excited for them.  I wish I can go too =(




  1. I agree that the “trick or treating” tradition came in too late for us. Ang dami ko sigurong na-terrorize kung may trick or treating na nung bata pa tayo. hehe. 🙂
