Halloween season means parties every day until the 31st. But it’s rare to find one that serves both tricks and treats. The folks at Belmont Hotel threw an awesome Halloween bash for Philippine STAR’s Lifestyle team last Oct. 26. Their basement 1 function room was decked out in spooky decoration with creepy music to match. To elevate the festive Halloween spirit, they even extended the theme to their food, serving pumpkin salads, jack-o-lantern cream puffs and blood stew (“It’s not your regular dinuguan,” says their food & beverage manager). Their setup could definitely make any Pinterest fanatic scream in delight.
Of course, no Halloween party would be complete without any tricks. Alakim, Pilipinas Got Talent Season 1 grand finalist, showed some magic tricks up his sleeve. While he didn’t perform his winning act during the TV show finale — he disappeared from the Araneta stage and reappeared at the audience area — he still got some oohs and aahs from the crowd with a spine-chilling guillotine act. (JSYK, no one got murdered.)
