Two weeks ago the Nomads hosted a Halloween party at David’s. It was Sean’s idea, he’s literally the genie, making all our dreams of dressing up as someone else come true.Back home, I was part of an organization called UP SAMASKOM and we’d have annual musical comedy variety shows. In the many years I was part of the org, I learned how to put hair up really high. So I put this skill to good use this year through Anna’s hair. I’m quite proud to say that it lasted through the night until the next day.
Yali’s make up has got to be my favourite.
It was Kinshuk’s first time to dress up for Halloween. He’s obviously joyful.
Here he is giving everyone loving looks vampire style.
Everyone dressed up for Halloween!
Then the big surprise of the night arrived.
It was Sushi dressed as a toilet monster of sorts. It reminds me of a famous Filipino horror film character called an “Undin”. A creature that lives in the common toilet of girls’ dormitories.
People dressed up as all sorts of things. Here Chalaine is dressed as a Walrus!
There is nothing scary about this picture at all. Probably one of my favorite stories about Lisbon.
Martha was dressed as Darkness. Here is white and darkness having a conversation.
When I was 7, I dreamt of being a secretary and when I met Chalaine, she said she had an imaginary secretary when she was young. Us being together in the program is a fulfilment of all our childhood imaginations.
Anton visited Ida over the weekend. When Ida was away, I spoke to Anton and he said something like “Look, (points to Ida) I’m in love with a bloody lady with a unibrow!”
Ingrid and Alina, are the first people I met in this city, it is always home whenever they’re around.
Made new friends that night too!
The cops arrived and it ended the party at David’s. Halloween is always fun. It’s a good opportunity to dress up as someone else. Most of the time though, I take it as a chance to be more like the way I’d love to on a normal day.
