Regardless of religious and cultural beliefs, Halloween will always have a special place in my heart. Why? Not because I love dressing up as freaky creatures and go trick or treating, but more than a decade back, I get a treat of my life on Halloween. My son was born. So every year, I look forward to celebrating another a well accomplished milestone as a mother on 31st October.
Being a modern mum is not an easy feat, what more when your child is a special need. Stigma is always there, but hey, we survived all the horrors that comes with the label. 😉
31st October is just 3 days away as of writing. With my parents retired and living 6 hours away from Kuala Lumpur and my in laws don’t really celebrate each other’s birthday, there is not much things done to celebrate my son’s birthday every year. Usually, it is just the three of us; my husband, my son and myself, doing all we can to make things memorable for the boy. I don’t quite like the fact that my parents in laws who don’t bother to remember their children’s birthday unless it is their favourite child. Up until I was 17 years old, my parents never failed to make my birthdays memorable with special dinner parties and such. I only stopped celebrating with them after I moved out to further my studies as it is not always possible to go back home to celebrate as they are 6 hours away from where I am currently residing.
I believe that birthdays is an important part of growing up and I make sure my son have a memorable one every year, by hook or by crook.
This year, we somewhat ‘celebrated’ it early, courtesy of Sungei Wang Plaza. :p They have unwittingly given us a mall trip and indulged us with Halloween treats without knowing what it actually meant to us.
Anyway, enough lamenting. To cut the long story short, my son and I went on a media FAM trip in Sungei Wang Plaza, and here’s sharing a little guide on Halloween Trick or Treating in Sungei Wang Plaza.
Whether you’re looking for places where you can be fully dressed in your costume of choice,styled up to the nines and get into the mood of Halloween with the make-ups designed to scare or just wanna have a bit of fun, you don’t have to look any further. Sungei Wang Plaza in Kuala Lumpur is the place for you to go.
Sungei Wang Plaza, being a mall with the tagline of ‘All kinds of everything’, indeed has a lot to offer at an affordable price. But if you want a full scale Halloween experience over there in Sungei Wang Plaza, here’s a little walk through.
First, kick off the Halloween mood by getting the adrenaline pumping with 9D Movie.
9D Cinema is located at 3rd floor in Sungei Wang Plaza and is offering
exciting 3D animated movies with surround sound, coupled with “active motion” luxury seats and dramatic effects such as rain, fog, lightning, wind, snow, touch, feel and more.
Your senses will be overwhelmed with the stimulating and exciting 3D movies. We tried ‘The Halloween Ghost’ where we were taken to a 15 minutes ride through Halloween horror. During the ride, we had to shoot off the ghosts flying around in a cemetery by using the laser guns provided.
With more than 10 action movies to choose from, you can be sure that you will be taken for a ride of a lifetime.Ticket prices is as stated below.
Famished after all the ghost and witch hunting? Head over to U-Cafe.
U-Cafe is a restaurant catered for urbanites who wants hearty Asian or Fusion Cuisine. Located at Concourse level, U-Cafe provides both indoor and al-freso dining area, making it a great venue for gatherings and such.

To celebrate the eve of Hallow, U-Cafe is offering Halloween Set Lunch, (RM14.75) consisting of the special Pumpkin Fried Rice with Chicken Chop and creamy pumpkin soup and watermelon juice.
The rice is served in a Jack-O-Lantern carved pumpkin, which I find pretty much amusing. Each pumpkins are carved beautifully.
The signature fried rice and succulent chicken chop is pretty much mouthwatering. The Halloween lunch set will be on the menu for Halloween from 26th to 30th October 2015.
After filling up the tummy, it’s now time to muster up the courage to get some tattoo done at Iron Bunny Tattoo Studio. Located at Level 1, this tattoo studio offers both temporary and permanent tattoos.
For RM10, you can get a pretty cool airbrush tattoo done.
My design of choice? A poison rose. 🙂
A trip to the mall is incomplete without getting some shopping done. After getting the tattoo done, we were brought to Mr.DIY, a supermarket that is offering all kinds of household items at a very affordable price. With over 2,000 items for you to choose from, you are definitely spoiled for choices.
Playground corner for children to amuse themselves with while the parents shop til they drop.
Anyway we participated in a mini Supermarket Treasure Hunt Game where we had to find a list of items with our teammates. We did not win, though, but we had fun nevertheless and nobody went back disappointed as we were given cash voucher to spend on whatever we would like to buy there.
Here is what I bought from Mr.DIY, a blazing red trolley so that I can get more shopping done. 😉
Halloween is never complete without scary makeup. So after our little shopping spree, we headed to Snips College of Creative Arts (SCCA) at Level 6. It is a college that offers creative courses. They are our makeup sponsors for the day.
Upon arrival, we were invited for a little hellish tea party.
And then when our tummy was filled, we were shown the process of Halloween make up in the make up studio.
Freaky, don’t you think?
Demoness in the making.

Apart from fancy costumes, they are also offering all sort of masks.

Assorted wigs are available at a reasonable price too.

All good things must come to an end, but not without one last treat at Hui Lau Shan a dessert shop that originated from Hong Kong.
They are also geared up for Halloween
This is part of their Halloween treats menu.
I ordered a Mango Pop Pop (RM10.90) with yummy Mango Mochi to share with my son AlienGoTravel. It was just the refreshment that we need after our little Halloween exploration in Sungei Wang Plaza.
With these exciting Halloween themed promotions line ups and all kinds of different specialty stores, each unique in their own way, shoppers would definitely have an amazing time with family and friends at Sungei Wang Plaza. So if you have yet to plan for Halloween, you might want to have some spooky fun in Sungei Wang Plaza.
