2011 Halloween

Yesterday, October 31st the management decided to have a small gathering for the Halloween in our pantry. There were contests for costumes (male & female), pair & the creepiest station. My team decided on a theme, The Plants vs. Zombies. I was assigned to be the sunflower. I was told to wear any green top and make a head piece resembling a sunflower. However, I got so many things to do last weekend so I wasn't able to come up with any but I made sure to wear something unusual from my common outfits.

 So I wore this.

1. White Bolero 
2. Green sando
3. High-waist & laced black skirt/tutu(?)

I was a little bit anxious at how people in the office will think about it but when I arrived in the office I was t he one who got surprised. They were all clad in real costumes. So I was happy cuz my outfit didn't seem out of place & a lot of people liked the skirt.

I had so much fun looking at the pictures on Facebook. Unfortunately, I had early sessions so I wasn't able to roam around the office to personally see my colleagues creativity & efforts. I so like their dedication.

On a different note....

I've just been pondering on why Halloween is celebrated. Why do people need to wear costumes? Is it some kind of marketing strategy for costume & pumpkin stores? I don't want to go into details of how or when it originated. I just wanna know what's the sense? So I came up with  my own assumptions. 

Perhaps it is for people to be crazy once a year & be someone else. The need to break out & free yourself from who you are. 

Special  thanks to my colleague Lara pala for all these wonderful pictures. 



  1. That looked fun! :D Happy Halloween to you, Jill!

  2. I love the skirt too!!! :)

    Your colleagues really made the effort to dress up and decorate their stations...nice...

    I don't like dressing up and wearing costumes for events but I enjoy looking at people who do. :)

  3. @Helen - Thanks Helen!!

    @April - yeah. same thing here. I like looking at them but I don't want to dress up.
