LaPiS: Halloween

Being in a country where almost every celebration in the “world as most of us know it” is virtually non-existent, I admittedly was quite stumped with the Halloween theme for this week. In fact, I was almost positive that I wouldn’t be able to get anything remotely “halloween-ish” from anywhere near here!

Given this mindset, you can just imagine how pleasantly surprised I was to find these in our local supermarket while doing our grocery shopping during the weekend (which, in this part of the world, are Thursdays and Fridays, by the way 😉 )…

Ornamental Halloween corn…

…plus a bonus mini pumpkin too! 😎

Just what I needed for this week’s entry!

What can I say? Living in a desert isn’t as “dry” as I thought it would be – this little kingdom always manages to spring (mostly delightful) surprises on me!

Here’s to an equally wonderful Halloween ahead! 😀

    Hon, I seriously love those colored corn… I don’t think they sell these in the Philippines… kita mo, iba talaga dito… walang halloween pero may pang decorate naman… sandali, sure ka hindi pwedeng kainin yan?

    Oo nga ano! You just have to laugh at the irony of it nga naman! 🙂

    As for the “edibility” of the corn…well pwede naman siguro…kung manok ka! Gotcha! Hahaha! 😆


  2. i’m amazed at your resourcefulness! thanks ha:) love those colors from the corns, now maybe keith can start carving that pumpkin again!:) hey enjoy the rest of the weekend! and happy halloween na rin *wink, wink*, come on over and let’s bring daughty to trick-o-treat’n! bilis!

  4. ornaments lang yan ate?????????????

    kaasar…sayang yung uling

    salamat sa pagbisita :))

    Actually, di naman talaga nagsayang ng uling since naturally ganito lang yung hitsura nung mga mais – parang pinatuyo or ni-“hybrid” ata in a special way to achieve yung parang grilled at speckled effect. 🙂

    Thanks for tirelessly dropping by too!
