If you’re going to celebrate Halloween (Friday October 31 2014) this year, we suggest you go all out.
Head down to your local costume shop and prepare to either scare yourself (or someone else) or drink yourself silly at one of these Halloween events. Or, if you prefer a more subdued route, we’ve got that covered too, including something a little unusual that includes your furkid!
Plan your fancy dress in advance and have fun this Halloween. After all, when is it ever you can wear that Playboy bunny costume and get away with it?
Here are the Top 5 Halloween Events In Kuala Lumpur :
1. Shocktoberfest: Mystery Theatre
Not everything needs to be absolutely horrific and gory for Halloween. If you’re looking to have something fun and different, leave it up to Brian Tan and Prakash Daniel to give classic horror a comedic twist with this mystery theatre show.
Gnurr and Phang Kuan Hoong will be accompanying the duo to provide chill-inducing music. Shocktoberfest is a series of Halloween events organised by Big Night Out in collaboration with The Wknd. Held at Barlai, you can also be sure to have a jolly night ahead with their fabulous cocktails. A sure win for a great night out!

3. Zombie ApoKLypse
If you’re in need of a unique adventure event, this one will definitely have you covered. The Zombie ApoKLypse returns again this year in Publika, Solaris Dutamas this coming Halloween weekend : 31st October and 1st November.
In the event, participants will go through various obstacles and missions in order to save the world from the Z Virus outbreak. It is guided by actors in full character of a Commando who will help you traverse the route and of course, avoid the zombie attacks.
It will take place from 8:00 PM to 12:00 midnight on both days. Participants need to pre-register to participate in this event. You’ll get your time slots and go off on an approximately 30 minutes experience throughout Publika with various missions and obstacles in order to rescue the Z-virus cure. It ends up finishing at the Decontamination booth where they will be scanned to see if they have been infected by the zombie virus themselves. FYI, the zombies will have this special UV paint that will be then scanned by a UV light.
4. Halloween Bus Tour – Part 2
Bait repeats their Halloween Bus Tour again this year, but, this time, they are partnering with Uber to save everyone the horror of driving back home (by the way, you’ll get free RM30 credit).
The event starts off at Bait, and the rest of the stops for the night are SIX, The Rabbit Hole and Rootz. Tickets are inclusive of drinks, goodie bags and transport. Early bird tickets are available now at Bait until Oct 24. Get more details here.
5. My Furry Halloween
For those who want something a little more subdued but that includes your furkid and to do some charity at the same time, this one’s for you. Hop Hop Café and Sit & Stay Artisan Pet Food are co-organising a charity Halloween dinner for dogs and their owners on the 2nd of Nov 2014.
The event aims to raise funds to help out their furry friends at Cherishlife Home, a private no-kill animal shelter in Hulu Langat. There will be Halloween-themed buffet spreads and best dressed contests. The folks here have not left out your dogs. For your dogs, Sit & Stay Pet Food Artisan will also be serving dog food of human-grade ingredients such as pork, pumpkin, eggs and flaxseeds with no additional flavourings and additives. Pet owners on the other hand can look forward to dining on a delicious spread of food such as squid ink pasta, puff pastries, chicken bratwurst and more.
