The term Halloween (also spelled Hallowe’en) is shortened from All Hallows’ Even – e’en is a shortening of even, which is the origin of the words “evening” and “eve”. This is ultimately derived from the Old English Eallra Hālgena ǣfen. It is now known as “Eve of” All Saints’ Day, which is November 1st.
In the 800s, the Church measured the day as starting at sunset, in accordance with the Florentine calendar. Although All Saints’ Day is now considered to occur one day after Halloween, the two holidays were once celebrated on the same day…..
I’ve never really get myself involve in Halloween.
I dunno how fun it can be having people who dress up strangely walking beside you…
Now imaging this, you are surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of them…
If Zouk~ is one place that you cannot miss during Halloween,
then the streets in Woodlands Drive is definitely the another one.
I heard in total there are like 3000+ people roaming around the estate during Halloween night.
I was there yesterday because of filming ( 主妇的春天 Housewives Pte Ltd, you must watch out for it! ).
For an hour plus, I clicked none stop… haha!
Alright, I know I have to improve my photographic skill.
Some photos sucks big time! haha
But it’s no easy taking pictures when they don’t stop and pose for you okay!
Everyone was like busy collecting sweeEEets and running around…
I’ll do better next year, I promise! 🙂

I don’t think this is SIngapore until u said WOODLANDS DRIVE. Was that some school and their students celebrating the day?
( Nope. It’s the estate. Try google for it – from 22 )
HIhi, i was there too… at ard 6+pm and stay till like 9pm… that place is reallie cool… tink i will be there again next year….
ha at first i was telling myself, i can never expect this to happen in S’pore. S’poreans seem to be a little too shy to dress up? haha. But well, i’m not exactly wrong huh, from what i see, most of the people who dressed up are ang mohs!
Ohh… this looks fun… Didn’t know somewhere in Singapore people really dressed up to celebrate Halloween! N u said there were about 3000+ people roaming around. Ohh my…

Do you have any ideas on the 主妇的春天 Housewives Pte Ltd …
Many of us are unable ot take down the contact..
Do you mind to help us find the contact ? Even Media Corp forum some ppl are asking for contacts but none responded. My friends are getting due coming Dec, and would like to have the service where the lady help us in finding the necessary things for the newborn etc.
Pls help…Appreciate it.

Hi Dasmond, can i know if 主妇的春天 needs some more work at home housewives for more episode? Can i have the contact? I need help with my business and i’m a housewives. Thanks in advance.
( There’s only 10 episode, we’re almost done with the filming. You should have sound out to them when they do the recruitment during 1st and 2nd episode loh… 🙁 – from 22 )
Aww, that’s so sad. 🙁
I’m watching every week and did thought of emailing to mediacorp.
But afraid that i may not be selected as i’m a young mummy.
Anyway, its okay.
I’m contented with your reply too! Hehe 😛
