The Halloween event at Ocean Park has been on my "to do" list for a few years now. You may say, just go! Unfortunately, it's never that easy for me. My obstacles includes friends that were easily scared and refused to pay to be scared / go altogether and me unable to be in Hong Kong during that time and this is just not something I wanted to go alone. Finally the stars are aligned and I went in September 2013! My friend got her hands on some complimentary tickets and we round up enough brave souls to go :)
I may have said it before but Halloween is one of my favorite festivals. I love the fact that I can dress and wear crazy make up and not be judged. In fact, I would love to take some make up courses that will teach me the techniques on Halloween / theatrical make ups. Maybe, I should just try to get a part time job with Ocean Park during Halloween next year!
|This guy just walked up straight to my lens and ask me to take a picture of him as is.|
In retrospect, he is quite cute (dimples FTW!!!)
|and a great body too XD|
Our goal for the day is simple, check out the Halloween themed attractions. We skipped a few of the non-scary ones. Since I know everything is man-made, I wasn't scared a bit. I was appreciating the special effects and the intricacies of the make up and costumes for the most part. XD However, I can't say the same of my friends. I took the lead on most of the attractions, so I could warn them of potential scare points (or add a few by fake scream along the say). As a result, my arms were bruised and I even got a few scratches... -.-|||
|This was the first haunted house we went|
maybe it was the worst, it was the best by consensus.
I purposefully didn't do any research so I can be surprised!
|This was in fact the only one where I screamed.|
|supposedly the scariest but I think we were indifferent at this point :P|
If haunted houses are not your thing, there are still things you can do and see~ Just look at these amazing carved pumpkins!
I had such a good experience I would definitely do it again next year! :)
