Halloween: the night of October 31, the eve of All Saints’ Day, commonly celebrated by children who dress in costume and solicit candy or other treats door-to-door.
Being fairly typical, boring, Southeast Asian Slugs, we do none of the above at our li’l shoppe. I mean, Western celebrations like these are meaningless to our deeply-entrenched Southeast Asian souls. That last sentence doesn’t even make sense. We just wanted an opportunity to use words like “deeply-entrenched”.
Our Slugphiles, however, know how to have funn.< — (okay, this is an in-joke meant for Ian and May only. And no, we are not explaining it to the rest of youse.)

This evening us Slugs on duty will all be dressed up as.. Singaporeans. Now that’s seriously scary stuff, if you think about it.
We hear some of youse might be coming by tonight in costume? Can’t wait to meat and grate you! HEHE OKBYEZ.
And, well, happy halloween. Whatever that means. Yah.
