TRICK OR TREAT

I researched the history of trick or treat on the net and found this and I quote "Trick-or-treat is a customary practice for children on Halloween in many countries. Children in costumes travel from house to house in order to ask for treats such as candy (or, in some cultures, money) with the phrase "Trick or treat!" The "trick" is a (usually idle) threat to perform mischief on the homeowners or their property if no treat is given to them. In North America, trick-or-treating has been a customary Halloween tradition since the late 1920s. It typically happens between 5:30pm and 9:30pm[1] on October 31,[2] although some municipalities choose other dates.[3] Homeowners wishing to participate in it sometimes decorate their private entrances with artificial spider webs, plastic skeletons and jack-o-lanterns. Some rather reluctant homeowners would simply leave the candy in bowls on the porch, others might be more participative and would even ask an effort from the children in order to provide them with candy. In more recent years, however, the practice has spread to almost any house within a neighborhood being visited by children." - Wikipedia 

Halloween is one of the most awaited activity in the office. We stayed late at night to decorate our cubes and make sure that it looks spooky to the children. It was very stressful because we were hitiing 2 birds with one stone, we had to decorate while finishing all deliverables to the client making sure they are on time.


 I was supposed to have dinner in the upper photo but I cancelled it because there were so many things to do. I was the one who initiated the dinner but I was the one who cancelled it, funny right? I know I left my friend disappointed that night but I'll make sure to catch up with him this week. 


We really had fun that day and ate our lunch together at Brown cup and I ordered Hungarian sausage with cheese but was not satisfied with the serving if there's a sunny side up egg on the side would really made a difference but thank you to Leslie and Mildred for feeding me with their extra rice and left over pork chop. 

 Priceless friends

Yummy but cannot satisfy my big appetite. hehe :)

I really envied Ludge's meal. I will really go back to Brown cup and order this! Thanks Ludge for giving me a part of the pancakes. :)

After the sumptuous lunch we headed back to the office and slept. But for me no sleep happened because my dad called and invited me over for a family lunch. I said NO but my father insisted so I gave in.I was really full that day! While with my family over lunch, Leslie texted me for Ludge's make-up so I hurriedly went back to the office and was shocked to see a flock of people and children with their costumes waiting for the elevator to open. There are 7 elevators in the building but that afternoon was different, it was really a busy elevator afternoon and you really have to wait.


I was cramming over Ludge's make-up, I was really scared that it will not turn out the way I wanted it to be, I didn't want to fail Ludge's expectation on the "zombie look" he tried to achieve. I was praying the whole time while doing the make-up asking for God's wisdom on what to do next with Ludge's look because first of all I'm no good at scary make-up looks, I just researched in Pinterest and followed diligently the steps there. God is really good though it didn't turned out the way it should be but still Ludge won as the BEST zombie look that day. 

Congrats Ludge :)

November 1 (All Saint's Day) I spent the entire time with my family at family park. At first I thought it was just a joke that we will go to Family Park but NO they were really serious and I told my parents we could spend it somewhere like in the house why Family Park? But I ended up enjoying the seesaw. I miss playing like a kid.

 MAGNUM FOR THE FAMILY
Ate Kay with King :)

Enjoy the weekend everyone.  :)

bible verse for this post is " And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

God Bless.
