Sorry for the VERY late posting of this entry. Been very busy this past few days..
For the past years of my life, I have never been in a Halloween party. Way back in Pinas, we didn’t have time for that. Kaya when it’s nearing November here in Dubai and my 101 friends are planning for a Halloween celebration, I’m very excited deep inside ;)
After sharing our creepy and cute ideas, couple of short meetings, we finally decided to have our post Halloween night last November 4. To be able for me to share everything that happened that night, allow me to photo blog.
Our talented friend Lyn headed in decorating our living area. Together with Len and Bert, our simple place turned into a wonderful and eerie spot! Halloween na Halloween! =) Bravo Lyn, Len and Bert! While on the other side of the house, Jay is very busy in the kitchen preparing for our creepy dinner.
Our over all make up artists were still, Len and Lyn. They both have an exceptional talent talaga. While me and Carl are both talented din nman, sa kitchen… taga taste-test haha! We are uniquely made by God eh, that’s why we have different gifts ;p
The preparation photos: 10 for 101’s effort! Lahat career talaga ang costume, make-up and acting!
Roll call for all the participants, arranged alphabetically. Disclaimer: Any views expressed by the blog site owner in this blog entry are intended only for fun.
Meet BERT! Among all of us, he’s the most excited in this Halloween night. Ikaw ba naman umabot sa ganyang age na di pa nakakaranas ng costume party? Di ba may point naman ma excite sya? Hehe kidding aside, Bert being the kuya, este tito, este tatay, este lolo of 101, remained to be very game and active in all our activities. Age doesn’t matter perfectly fits him! Groovy’ng groovy and we all love him for that! Award for the night: EFFORTLESS AWARD. Kita mo naman, tumungo pa lang nakakatakot na!
Next is CARL. Her witch costume is well tailored for her personality. Mataray make-up, in all black attire tapos sabay tawa ng tawa like a real witch. She’s like that, she might look masungit at first but if you’ll get to know her, she’s the jolliest person on earth. Parang luka na nga minsan! Haha choz! Award for the night: ANG SAKIT AWARD. Why ang sakit? I have a kwento. During our game that night, Carl was tasked to finish 5 tablespoons of hot and spicy tomato salsa with chili powder. When she had her 1st teaspoon, she blurted “ahh ahhng sakit” in a super funny and maarte way. What she meant was, the ‘hotness’ of the salsa made her throat hurts. Haha!
And we now have, DONG aka Jhong Hilario! Yeees galing mambola ni Nani! His costume is not scary but it enhanced Dong’s dancer aura. Everyone would fall in love with his dancing antics thus making him very winner in his ‘jabbawockeez’ (did I spell it right?) outfit! Award for the night: STIFF NECK AWARD. Since he wanted to become creepy with his costume which obviously eh mahirap, pinanindigan ni Dong itagilid ng so much so much ang neck nya, nagmuka tuloy may stiff neck lang hehe!
And now let’s move on to ERIC aka Elvis Presley! Haha! Actually, the original costume of Eric is Edward of Twilight. He’s all geared in his black long sleeves with open button then super hair gel to the nth level. But due to his very wacky personality, he came out to be Elvis Presley instead of Edward! Gitara na lang kulang! Laughing trip kami lahat when Eric came out of the room. Award for the night: BLUE SUEDE SHOES AWARD. I think the reason is obvious ;)
JAY is for Jacob este Joker na lang pala. It was an answered prayer after we laid our hands and cast away the bad spirit from Jay. Aba eh ang plano ba naman na costume is Jacob of Twilight! Ninerbyos talaga kaming lahat haha! And bet you, he is really serious to show off his abs. He planned it days before the Halloween night. Good thing he changed his mind, thank you Lord! But we commend Jay for keeping it up with his character as Joker.
Smile is plastered on his face the whole night kahit na pagod sya preparing our dinner. Award for the night: DORA AWARD. He’s the male version kasi of Dora with his spiked hair, white shirt and maong shorts minus the back pack bag. I was honestly confused of his outfit, kelan pa nag-student attire si Joker? Haha peace Jay! I love your red lips anyway!
Meet LEN, our very own Gagambina! Take note, with her hair style, make-up, costume and props.. Hindi sya prepared! Lagay na yan, hindi pa sya prepared! I know this is the hardest night in Lens’ life kasi no matter how much she tried to look hideous and dreadful ayaw talaga, she still looks pretty and at the same time funny. Super emote na sya sa pagmamake face and yet, she doesn’t look scary! Award for the night: 10 FOR EFFORT AWARD. Don’t worry Len, we appreciate your effort for making your face as unpleasant as possible, it’s the effort that counts anyway =)
The stage is now on for LYN. Award for the night: MOST EFFECTIVE AWARD. No need for further explanation I guess. It really has to be Lyn, she’s really scary! As in tumatatak! The way she walks, looks, acts nakupo ang galing talaga! I even dreamt of her that night. I don’t even want to get near her that night. I love her make up, it looks very real. Even the real black lady will surely ran away from her. Yun lang, this black lady is one crying baby pala! Imagine with her very strong personality, sa kamatis lang pala sya susuko hehe. She had a bad night with that big red tomato that she had to consume in order to win our Halloween group game.
And now, it’s Sadako’s turn! And it’s no other than yours truly! Aminin, I look scary talaga =) Actually, the original plan is that I’ll be a Mummy. Poy already bought a big roll of tissue paper to serve as my costume and I even had an intro line that we’ll go like this “Good evening! Standing in front of you is Mimay’s MUMMY and now let me call her Daddy!” Hehe non sense as it may seem pero pwede na sana kaso during our preparation time, I accidentally put my hair down my face and Jay said I look very scary. So ayun, dab of white foundation, gun bullet in my forehead, black and red eye liner and jaraaan!! Award for the night: SOSYALERANG CHUBBY SADAKO AWARD. I know, I’m the first ever chubby Sadako in UCB shirt hahaha! Thanks Lyn for lending me your shirt.
I am one proud wife for personally making my hubby’s costume as Mr. Skeleton. Meet POY, the chubby Mr. Skeleton. Everyone in the house told him the same. His costume doesn’t fit him because hubby is becoming healthier these days. But he looks very cute, I like it more if he’s chubby because it only goes to show that we are happy couple talaga since we are both improving in terms of weight hehe. Award for the night: BASURERO LOOK AWARD. Do I need to explain further? Look at his make up haha! Kay Poy nasira ang talent ni Len =)
Lights on for our debonair RUSSEL in his Kokey mask. Since the scary mask doesn’t look scary at all, we called him Kokey kasi muka syang nawawalang kapatid ni Kokey. The mask looks very ‘maamo’ noh? It’s the most adorable mask I’ve ever seen, promise! I have a kwento. After looking at our photos, Russel was very problematic. He was like this:
Ssel: “Ganda ng mga pictures natin, matutuwa si Nanay pag nakita mga to!”
Nani: “E pano naman malalaman ni Nanay mo na ikaw yang nka mask?”
Ssel: “Naku oo nga no! Puro naka maskara pala ko sa picture, tsk sayang! Di ako makikilala ni Nanay!”
Haha kulet!! Award for the night: KUYA KOKEY AWARD. Ssel tried all his best efforts to be scary in his mask, but still he looks Kokey’s brother to us ;p
And last but definitely not the least, on the red corner, let me call WIN. “Win ikaw na! Gising! No ba yan Win, last ka na nga sa roll call, tulog ka pa din!”
As usual, nagkakagulo na sa bahay for our Halloween preparation but our dearest Win is peacefully sleeping in his bed with matching kumot and hilik! But I think I got his point, he slept to recharge he said. So after the party, he’s the only person nga naman left awake to wash all the dishes. Oh db bait bait! Award for the night: BATANG MASIPAG AWARD.
Simple, yet I have to say, surely one of the most unforgettable night of my life. Everyone had fun planning, decorating the house and preparing for that special night. Thank you 101 guys for the fun fun fun night! Saludo ako sa lahat for being very game and cooperative =)
