To all those who know me since way back, you know that Halloween is my most favorite time of the year. Christmas only comes second followed by Summer. This is why every year, since I was little, I always celebrate the season one way or another — whether by visiting the dead and playing with candles in the cemetery, watching horror flicks (which I don’t enjoy at any other time of the year because I easily get scared — so ironic!), doing tarot card reading, palm reading, playing with a makeshift Quiija board, giving out candies to kids, trick or treating, holding Halloween costume parties, attending Halloween costume parties, etc. These are the things that I’ve been doing since.
Then starting October 2014, when I was so lonely at home that I didn’t feel like holding another party, for the first time I went to Nuvali with a few close friends to experience their Night Sky Cinema.
It featured 3 horror flicks which I loved even before — 6th Sense, Annabelle, Zombieland.
And though I slept on our picnic mat out of sheer fatigue from all my work and emotional stress, I was happy to be with friends. I was missing Mahal so much then because we were still in a long-distance relationship.
Then last year, October 2015, I was already oh so preggy then, I wanted Mahal to experience Nuvali’s Night Sky Cinema, so we went there again together with my parents, my nephews and one of my best friends Anne. They were showing movies about pets which my family loved because they’re all pet lovers. As for me, pet movies are not my thing but I was happy nonetheless seeing how they were into the night picnic/movie watching/out-in -the-open-field thing with a lot of other people.
This year, I want us all to come back with baby Tuz in tow! I’m excited coz our family is now complete! My parents will be there too as well as my nephews. Anne is currently touring Italy so we’ll just celebrate with her in Spirit. Nuvali’s Night Sky Cinema will be showing 2 cartoon horror flicks — Monsters vs Aliens and Monster House. I loved these two movies. I even have DVDs of them in the house (I think!) Gates will open at 2PM, admission is free and we can all come in costumes!

I’m so excited! We plan to go there before lunch coz I want to buy baby Tuz his first Halloween costume (I hope we have the time!). We’ve just been so busy that we never had the time to prepare for this year’s Halloween. Mahal and I are both full-time-work-from-home parents (we have no helpers nor yaya, it’s just me and Mahal ever since baby Tuz was born plus the occasional visits of my mom and dad) and we even haven’t had the chance to decorate the house yet! Before, I used to start decorating as early as August! Anyway, just looking at these Halloween home decors we did last year give me so much joy!
After I post this blog, I’ll be decorating the house once again the way we did before then off we’re heading to Nuvali for Mahal to experience it during the day and for us to picnic once again at their Night Sky Cinema. We hope the weather will cooperate. It’s quite sunny now so hopefully the good weather will last until dawn.
If you’re going to Nuvali and you see us, come say hi!
