Ytd was Halloween preparation at full swing after mock op was over!
But everything was put on a hold when ahem Burden Jianing ahem ended her mock op at 2pm and ahem glutton Tang and WeiShun ahem ended their buffet at 3pm. After burden Ning was done, Wenjie + her + me went to joochiat road to find a costume shop to see if we can rent some costumes at a cheap price. Well…to be honest, I was not entirely surprised that the lowest rental rate for one costume was $90. Our budget of $20++ could probably only rent a fanciful hat. Total waste of time :/.
Anyway, we met the glutton duo before heading to my house for make-up. It was 4pm+ by then and the event that we’re attending in Woodgrove Estate starts at 6pm. What’s worse is that it takes 1hr+ to get from Tampines to Woodlands by train. Time definitely wasn’t on our side.
We quickly started on our make-up after Siying joined us but all of us were totally unsure of what to do. FAIL. We then started on what we knew, slapping white paint on our faces. Consequently, we used eyeliners, eye pencils and lipstick to do some doodling or 自由发挥 as I would like to call it.
At 7pm+, after all the waiting for the white paint to dry (which it never did), getting theatre blood on clothes and messing our hair, we were FINALLY ready to roll.
We decided to cab there since it was 7.45pm and the event ends at 8pm lol. I was betting that the event will drag on for a few more hours before it ends so yup. After paying the cab fares, my eyes were about to turn into waterfalls. Boohoo tampines to woodlands $27.10 sia, no joke. Well, at least we reached woodlands (for the first time).
Right after we got off, people were already staring at us. Apparently we were one of the few scary ones (Mission accomplished) Tang even managed to make a child cry while we were walking into the woodgrove estate lol poor kid. I feel you.
Luckily, there were still loads of people strolling aroung the entire estate and I was pleasantly surprised by all the decorated houses. They really did put in a lot of effort into decoration. There was even a house with a mist machine and a skeleton sitting on the sofa. While the people were busily snapping photos of the house, the owners were posing outside for photos too.
Wlao the houses estate itself was already kinda mindblowing for us. Each of the houses was HUGE. It really does look like those houses in American tv shows but classier. I really can’t imagine how it is like to live in such humongous houses in Singapore.
If there are any downside to this event, I would have to say that some of the people there were kind of rude. I’m not trying to throw shade here but a few of them were really obnoxious. They kept bullying people everywhere they go. One girl even screamed at Tang’s ear and scared the living shit out of him. I stared back at her and she said in her American accent
“Actually, you’re quite scary, congrats! Happy Halloween!”
Anyway, we had much fun scaring people while we walked in one horizontal straight line around the estate and we 暗爽 when people asked us for photos hahah. We were stared at most of the time but it was a fun experience nonetheless 🙂
Took more pics before heading home…BY MRT
Was jaded when i walked home with my last bit of energy but i really had a blast. Had a lot of first times and yolo moments. Not too bad for my first Halloween 🙂
