KE VII Hall has always been known among the NUS community for its worn out (and eerie) exterior. This year, KE VII Hall will live beyond its eerie reputation by holding, for the first time ever, the largest Halloween party in NUS. The ‘After Dusk Party’, as it is aptly named, is organized by GH block and promises to be a mind-blowing experience not recommended for the faint-hearted. We had a chat with JK, head of the organizing committee, for a sneak peak into what the After Dusk Party (ADP) has to offer. Be afraid, very afraid.
So JK! Please tell us more about the ADP?
Sure thing! It will be held on the 16th of October; and certainly something that everyone can look forward to after the tiring and traumatizing mid-term examinations. This event will certainly showcase KE VII Hall in a different light, as familiar places such as the Meeting Room, Communal Hall and Recreational Room will be transformed overnight to become Halloween themed haunts.
The party will start with a screening of well-loved horror movies that will certainly send a chill down your spine. Subsequently, the journey into King Edward Hospital will commence! Displaying the artistic and dramatic talents of the GH block committee, your senses will definitely be thrilled by the convincing acting and flamboyant costumes. Finally, the night will end in the Recreational Room where all participants will feast on ordinary food with extraordinary appearances. Tested and proven recipes of mocktails will also be served! The atmosphere will be great for chilling out as a live band will be playing in the background, setting the mood for a time of great fun and bonding.
How was the idea conceived? Who was the brain child of the event?
Well, I must say that food had a huge part to play in making this event a reality. It was conceived after many late-night bowls of ‘Ban Mian’ at the NUH Kopitiam, with a tinge of inspiration from the ghostly atmosphere en-route to NUH. In particular, we have a fellow GH blocker to thank for showing us the ghastly images from his Forensic Science module revolving around mangled bodies and faceless corpses.
Given the reputation of being the most ‘happening’ block in KE VII Hall, how does GH again feel, being given this opportunity to plan such a ‘happening’ event?
We’re really excited to be given the opportunity to plan this event in KE VII Hall! Halloween has never been a traditional must-have in KE, and we hope to change that this year by providing a setting for KEViians to let their hair down (pun intended) and have fun at this ghostly event!
What is the purpose of the event?
Well, we hope to showcase the vibrancy of KE VII Hall to the potential future residents and show other people how we truly have fun! More importantly, we hope that KE VII residents will bond even more closely though the many scares and frights that await them! :P
In short, what is the event all about? What can we expect from it?
In short, this is how every university student should be living up life on Halloween. ;) This is the first time that such an event has ever been organized in KE VII Hall. :D So be prepared for refreshing, never-seen-before scares! Expect awesome food, awesome drinks, awesome music, awesome atmosphere and an awesome party!!
Lastly, what would you like to tell our readers? How can they prepare themselves for the party?
Dress up, brace yourself and have a blast. (: Happy Halloween too folks! We’ll be seeing you there!
