Halloween games to play

As a party planner, I constantly look out for ways to make the parties I organize entertaining. With Halloween around the corner, here are some games that I found on the net. You can use them for your own parties or if you need our help, I'll be more than happy to help you organize one.

Tie an Orange ribbonThis game is a great way to start your party.
Orange or Black Ribbon/Yarn Scissors

To Play
Buy some yarn or ribbon, and cut the ribbon/yarn up into various lengths (at least 100-400 uneven pieces).

Hide the yarn or ribbon around the house.

Put everyone into pairs, and have them search throughout the house to find as many pieces of ribbon/yarn as they possibly can.

Each team must work with their partner to tie each piece of ribbon/yarn together to create one long piece of yarn/ribbon. Whoever has the longest piece of ribbon/yarn at the end of 15 minutes wins the game (It is OK if not every piece of ribbon is found).

Scavenger HuntThis is a game that is usually relatively inexpensive and time-consuming.

IngredientsOrange Paper
Any Clue Items (See Below)

To Play
Cut out pumpkins on the orange paper and write out the scavenger hunt clues.
Divide guests into teams.
Give the partygoers clues that take them from place to place.

Here are some Halloween ideas to get you started.

Go to the place where the slogan is 'Make it a _______ night' and get a scary movie with a title that will make you _________ (yell really loud).

Go to Blockbuster and get the movie Scream 1,2, or 3

Get a piece of a costume from someone who is dressed to help save lives

Get a piece of a costume from a Dr., police, fireman, etc.

Find something that might purr (or a picture).
(Picture of a cat, piece of a cat costume, etc.)

Obtain a CD from a group whose name will make you want to "Bust Jack O' Lanterns.” (Smashing Pumpkins CD/tape).

Find anything related to "The Great Pumpkin." (Anything related to the classic Charlie Brown Halloween special/comic strip that deals with "The Great Pumpkin").

The team that finishes first and gets all of the right answers, wins.

Scary Story Contest


Index Cards

To Play
Write out on individual index cards one scary story opening line. Good examples include: “It was a stormy night…” “The ghost moaned…” “A body lay in the corner…” “The mummy chased her…”

Gather guests in a circle and make it really dark and light some candles.

Hand out an index card to each guest.

The first person reads their opening line and has one minute to make up a scary story.

You go around the circle until all stories have been read.

The story that gets the most shrieks and shrills, wins.

For kids who are too young to play games, why not spend a few hours decorating Halloween cookies?

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

The Hunt of for the Milky Way Sabah- Day 2 to 4 Ranau and Kundasang

Day 2- Ranau

So hubby and I survived the winter of Tambunan, and we had a simple breakfast of nasi lemak bungkus which was served with a bowl of soup at Tambunan Town (it's a Sabahan norm to have soup served at every meal, we discovered). The group said they were heading to the waterfall about 30 minutes away after breakfast then will check out and head to Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau (where do they get their energy???).

I said we would join them at the waterfall after freshening up at the hotel. Our hotel bed had other plans. It enveloped us and refused to let us go until noon so I meekly messaged Emma that we would join them at Sabah Tea Garden.

After we free-ed ourselves from the clutches of the bed, we made our way to Mahua Waterfall where we were greeted by green and hilly landscapes before reaching a fairly lonely road (really I think we only passed one car on the way there). After a lonely 20 - minute ride, we saw about 20 cars parked at the entrance which is a huge difference …

Plan your next hotel stay in Johor Bahru at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort

During my recent trip to Johor Bahru, we stayed the night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort which is located at Taman Mount Austin,.

I rarely stay out of Johor Bahru city when I'm there for work so I was curious to find out a bit more about the developer of Austin Heights as this area is newly developed and still being developed. (Austin Heights sounds something out of my Sweet Valley High Book days!)

The Austin Heights Group is a leading property developer that provides innovative, comprehensive and quality homes. The group offers a brand new lifestyle with the first-of-its-kind “no back-lane” cluster home design concepts in Johor, The “HOPSCA-inspired” Austin Heights township is now the Group’s flagship development with excellent take-up rates of its launches and all the completed phases have been 100% sold out.

HOPSCA is a buzzword used by real estate developers that refers to large-scale mixed-use commercial urban developments. It is an abbreviation of Hotel, Offices, …
