It was a spooky kind of Saturday night when I decided to sign up to witness Handuraw sa Baul last October 29 at Malagos Garden Resort in Calinan. It was a one-day event that aims to showcase Philippine music, arts, and horror on Hollow’s Eve through many different activities mounted for the entire celebration.
Actually it was my first halloween event, a bit hesitant at first coz I easily get scared with spooky and halloween stuff. But since I'm going to be with my bloggers friends and I was also bringing along my daughter Mikkie, I thought this was going to be an interesting night. And it really was. After an hour travel from Davao to Calinan, we arrived at the venue at almost 7pm. We were in time for the which featured hair-raising horror short films of budding Davao filmmakers.

Earlier that day, the audience witnessed a live poetry reading, Art Symposium, Live Painting and Pumpkin Carving Contest.
Of course, a halloween event wouldn't be complete without a Horror house, and it was the one thing that convinced me to be there in the first place,lol. Believe me, It was soooo scary! The entrance area looked like the real thing with matching eerie background music to boot. Check the photos I took to see for yourself =)
We had so much fun during this event, it was worth the trip from Davao. Food and drinks were awesome, the horror house didn't disappoint, the filmfest was indeed "ngilngig", the management and staff of Malagos Garden Resort headed by Maam Charisse Puentespina were very kind and accommodating. Thank so much for inviting us!!! Hope to be back in their future events. =)
