Getting ready for Halloween 2014

I’m actually not a fan of Halloween – I’ve never grown up with it and I’m not a big fan of dressing up. So usually I give it a miss, although I went to the Halloween hike last year (and there is also one taking place this year).

I’m not sure about what I will do this year – as Halloween falls on a Friday. I might go for dinner with Patrick and/or friends.

Every year it seems Halloween is becoming bigger and more popular. Not only is there a long list of Halloween parties and events in town (I won’t list them out, you can check out the listings on Time Out Hong Kong) and the usual special Halloween attractions at Disneyland (check out HKfiles’ post), Ocean Park and new this year: the Fright Dome.

But what I also noticed is that almost every shop, cafe or market stall is selling a Halloween-themed item. For instance, while walking through Wan Chai Market, I noticed you could buy lots of decorations and also outfits…

… and people were busy purchasing Halloween items!

Next on my list was my usual shopping at Fusion Supermarket – and of course, I was created with Halloween chocolates, candies and sweets in all colours and forms!

Of course, you can also purchase decorations and outfits:

And also all the cake shops have stocked up with ghostly treats, such as this ‘horrible’ mango mousse cake:

Halloween has really become very commercial and mainstream here in Hong Kong – how is it celebrated in your city or country?
