I’ve always loved Halloween. And for many reasons my halloween this year had been a lot of fun. 🙂
Halloween Best Bay Decoration contest
One reason would have to be the fact that I was able to get my creative juices to work decorating my department’s workstation.
I really had fun planning, (not to mention searching other blogs for ideas on easy-to-make Halloween decors) and working with my team mates in coming up with unique Disney inspired Halloween decors that won our team the 2nd place award in the office Halloween Best Bay Decoration contest 🙂
One team transformed their area into looking like an eerie dark forest (complete with real dead trees) with the scary-looking version of the seven dwarfs and a bloody snow white. Their Disney bay was so scary that during the trick or treat event, several kids who went to their area, came out crying. 😆 No kidding. 😉
Another team transformed their area into a pirate ship with a huge octopus dangling over them. 🙂
But I guess it’s true what Michael Jordan said that “Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.” because even if my team had the least number of members, our great teamwork and creative minds put together made us ahead of the others.
Hidden Talents Discovered
Also, this contest I must say paved the way for me and my team mates to discover each other’s hidden skills or talents.
During those Sundays we spent working on the decors, I discovered that one of my workmates, had lantern-making skills, acquired from helping out with their family business.
Another colleague of mine, I consider to be crafty because he did a nice work with our backdrop, which had been amazingly hand-sewn by the other guys in our team. And I must say, the guys’ sewing skill is yet another interesting discovery. 🙂
In truth, this contest had been a challenge all along. It was hard enough that we were limited to using recycled materials for the decors but the fact that we were only five members in our team and we competed against teams with a range of 20 to 80 members each made this contest really challenging. And this is why even if we just won the second place award, I am happy as if we won first! 🙂
A Halloween Weekend at Enchanted Kingdom
Aside from winning 2nd in our office contest, my Halloween this year had been extra fun because I got to spend it in Enchanted Kingdom, my favorite amusement park in the Philippines!
Below are a few photos of me taken with some famous characters who, like me, spent their Halloween at Enchanted Kingdom. 😛
There you go, that’s my Halloween 2011. As early as now I’ve made a vow to have an even better Halloween celebration next year by dressing up and attending a costume party since I didn’t get to try that this year. 😀
Oh crap, it’s just November but I’m already excited for Halloween 2012!
