What I did on Halloween
I hope you y’all had a scary and sugar-overdosed Halloween. For all of you that are new to the Glog this year, I’m Haylee Luu (FYI, my real name is Khánh Ngọc, but I figured most people can’t pronounce it). I come from a small South-east Asian country called Vietnam, however, my parents just moved to Canada last year. I guess I could be qualified as a Canadian, too. If you follow my Glog last year, you probably know that I’m a self-proclaimed food lover. Although the street food in Vietnam is not particularly FDA-approved, I have an eerie obsession with Vietnamese street food. I could talk to you about it for days and days. But let leave that topic for another day, shall we?
So, my friend and I decided to roam around Bethel tonight. Since we both come from countries that do not celebrate Halloween, watching kids knocking on doors and asking for candy was very amusing. Like Mrs Shifrin has said, “Everyday, we tell our children that they should not talk to strangers and ask for food. But there is this one day that they completely do the opposite of what we tell them not to, and that day is Halloween”.
After that, we went to see the fall drama production, the Laramie Project. The play was an eye-opening experience, as I did not know a lot about the horrific incidents. To conclude the night, we went to Mrs Liff’s house to have late-night snack and tea. Since we were both hungry, we decided to make some noodles. By the end of the night, we were so full that even breathing seemed like a difficult task. I think I’m submitting myself to food coma as I’m writing this post.
My halloween was, not surprisingly, full of food. And I hope you had fun today, too.
Until next time
