The creativity of locals is often underestimated but residents from various housing estates have proven time and again that they’re a force to be reckoned with every time there are festivities.
Recently, Sembawang residents decorated the corridor of their flats with creepy characters just in time for Halloween. Minister Ong Ye Kung shared the photos in a Facebook post that has since gone viral with over 1.7k shares.
Netizens were spooked by creepy characters like Valak hanging by the ledge.
Be careful as you turn into the corner, as you’ll never know what lies in waiting.
A fair warning, one might say, especially for the faint hearted.
Some were concerned over the overall creepy vibes of the corridor, with the dim red glow for maximum impact.
It’s all in the name of good fun.
We will only know if there are reports of sightings…
Well, well, well. Isn’t that deep…
The delivery riders have encountered worse in their daily lives with the living, this won’t faze them.
Don’t invite trouble unnecessarily, they say.
Let’s just hope that the real spirits don’t join in on the fun tonight.
Reporter’s Opinions: As a true blue Singaporean, I enjoy a dose of the creepy and paranormal from time to time. I appreciate the decor, though the red lighting is a bit overboard. It gives off an eerie vibe but it can spook children, the elderly and those who are fainthearted.
And one might get in trouble if anything untoward were to happen.
It’s interesting to see Halloween being accepted more here in recent years considering it’s not an official festival in Singapore. We’ve had the horror nights at various places of attractions for years now but that is more of generating money as compared to celebrating it.
Such is the power of globalisation, especially when Singapore is a melting pot of cultures with a dash of Westernization.
