This entry is more than two months late! Hehe~ Apologies for the long hiatus! Anyway, boyfriend took part in an online contest and won a pair of tickets to Sentosa Spooktacular on Halloween Day! Actually, the winners were already chosen. However, one of them couldn't make it. Therefore, they had to re-pick another winner and lucky boyfriend got it!!! It was just one day before Halloween when they called to inform boyfriend, and we had to travel all the way down to Ang Mo Kio industrial park to collect the tickets! We had wanted to forgo the tickets, as they called us at close to 2pm to inform us and we had to collect it by 5pm on the very day! Moreover, we needed to head to HDB Hub to sign the lease agreement at 4pm on the same day! In the end, we decided to collect the tickets as we have never been to any Halloween night and we thought it could be quite an exciting and memorable one for us!
UPDATED ON 6 MARCH 2014, 3PM!
On the actual day of Halloween, boyfriend drove over to pick me up at Vivo City as I went to buy dinner at Texas Chicken after knocking off. After filling our tummies, we started our adventure! We set off at Beach Station by taking the creatively-decorated tram to our destination - Spooktacular Sentosa!
Initially, we thought there were not a lot of people as it was a Thursday. However, we were wrong! It was flooded with super loads of people as it was the actual day~ Goodness! There were too many people that we had to be let in group by group. I guessed it was in a group of twenty by each time.
We watched a short clip at the start which briefly summed up that there would be five different stations for the whole adventure. The five movies shown above would be the stations of the adventure that we would be going to. Without further ado, I shall let the pictures do the talking!
It was such an eye-opener to see so many people dressing up just for this day! Not only the staff who were working for the event, but also, the people who went for the event! Some of their make-up and costumes even looked like those seen on television dramas! I got scared by quite a number of them several times throughout the whole event. Even my dear boyfriend got scared by the staff once! Hahaha~ Overall, it was an awesome night for us! We started at about half past eight and by the time we completed four out of five stations, it was already half past midnight! The waiting time for the first station was forty-five minutes, the second & third station were almost one and a half hour each and though the waiting time for the fourth station was just less than five minutes, we didn't manage to complete the last station as there were almost hundred people in the line!!! No joke, man~ Our legs were all sore and jelly from standing all the way at the queue as there were no seats. We were sweating all over even though it was thoughtful of them to install electric fans all over the place. Anyhow, no regrets attending the event since the tickets were complimentary ;-D
