So how is Halloween celebrated in Singapore?
Hallowwen falls on the last day of October every year. But in Singapore, it is typically celebrated on the last weekend of the October cos people have to go to work on weekdays.
Halloween seems to be getting increasingly popular in Singapore as can be evidenced by the massive long queues outside popular night clubs from dusk till dawn.
Trick-or-treating is generally unpracticed over here. People treat Halloween more like a costuming day. There are the usual witches, ghosts, skeletons and other (supposedly) scary characters. Then there are also the likes of (sexy) nurses, (sexy) policewomen, anime cosplays and many other (copyrighted) characters from popular culture.
Just to name a few I saw, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, a ghostbuster, pirates, Harry Potters, a Chinese Emperor, Soldiers, a wrestler, a cow, a penguin, a Scottish football fan in a kilt, lolita, a girl in yutaka and Japanese school uniforms. Surprisingly, some even wore their real school uniform! Singapore school uniforms are very dull looking btw (example). And then we also have the scantily clad girls with devil horns or nekomimi hair band. Oh did I mention all those outfits are very short and revealing? It’s an eye feast. Lots of oppai(s) everywhere! (‘~’)
Most locals lead an monotonous life and Halloween seems like the only opportunity for people to wind down, play dress up (or down) and parade it openly in public without been seen as weirdo.
Ok enough about the costumes, next I want to say something about local night clubs. Most night clubs are so freaking small and you have like so many people crowded in one dark and noisy environment. One cannot even see and hear clearly the person next to you. Maybe it’s just me cos there are always plenty of people queuing outside eager to get in. Most clubs allow free entry to people who come in costume on Halloween. Personally I don’t see the point of waiting hours to get into a club to be packed like sardines. The only good thing about local night clubs though is that smoking is prohibited.
Anyway I actually enjoyed myself more mingling with the people queuing outside to get in. Taking pictures with the cute babes (Can’t turn them down since they asked). ^^;
Last year, the gang and I went to Clarke Quay, another famous spot for clubbers. It was crowded but at least it has an open area to walk around. It was my first trooping in armour. As with last year, I didn’t have a personal photographer to take pictures this year as well so can’t show you all more of the cute girlies out there last night.
When I was out of armour and getting ready to go home, I saw this super hot chick in extremely short skirt and her bursting oppai exposed in 3/4 view. Maybe Lady Luck was giving me a chance cos she actually talked to me! She asked is this the line to wait for taxis. I answered, “I have no idea”. People always say Halloween is the best time to get laid since people can’t blame you for doing crazy stuffs since it’s Halloween afterall! Oh well, maybe next year… Happy Halloween everyone!
