Diva Visited GnB Comic's Spanking New Place for Halloween Comics Fest!

Yesterday (29 October 2016), Red Dot Diva visited GnB Comic's spankin' brand new shop at Kitchener Complex for Halloween Comics Fest!

Halloween Comics Fest is an annual worldwide event when free horror comic books are given out to fans of all ages at participating stores. This was also Red Dot Diva's first time attending the celebration.

One of the few comics bookstores existing in Red Dot Island, GnB Comics has been operating at Rochor Centre for several years. Unfortunately, the blocks of old but colourful apartments and shops were marked for demolition, and as that time drew nearer, fans and members of GnB were getting twitchy wondering if the shop will carry on at another site or close its shutters for good.

Then, in late September, a surprise announcement was made on GnB Comics' mobile app. The comic book store has found a new home at Kitchener Complex, which is just a hop and a skip away from Lavender MRT Station! Woohoo!

HBO Asia Set to Scare Viewers with Original Mini-Series "Grace" this Halloween!


At Halloween this year, tune in and get spooky with HBO Asia!

The cable channel has just announced the October 17, 2014 premiere date for new horror mini-series "Grace", a four-part story fully conceptualized and developed by HBO Asia. This is the company's first original mini-series.

"Grace" is set in current day urban Asia and is about an unspeakable horror faced by a family due to a father's mistake. Ooooohhh... Red Dot Diva wonders what horrible boo-boos did Daddy commit. According to HBO Asia, "the Asian views concerning family, sacrifice and vengeance" will be examined in the mini-series.

Singapore Zombie Walk 2013: Where The Small Ones Are The Scariest!

The sequel to last year's Singapore Zombie Walk 2013 was held last night (Oct 26) at the Cathay. And as they say, it's difficult for a sequel to measure up to the original.

It could have been the venue (the Cathay is usually a dead zone on normal days anyway) but Red Dot Diva thought yesterday's walk was more than undead. There were hardly any interested on-lookers wandering around the mall to spur a starving zombie's appetite. Last year's walk held at Clarke Quay was definitely a more intense and thrilling zombie carnage.

Singapore Zombie Walk Returns - This Time At The Cathay!

The local zombies of the Red Dot Island variant have sure taken their time to shuffle across from Clarke Quay to Handy Road.

It has taken them about a year. Just nice for The Singapore Zombie Walk 2013 held on October 26th - a few days before Halloween!

The undead are expected to gather at The Cathay (Handy Road) and Red Dot Diva thinks they have managed to infect more humans in the span of one year. Last year's zombie infestation stood at 131. Early warnings have put the number to be a high of 500 this year.

A wonderfully scary thought indeed.

Singapore Zombie Walk: When Zombies Stumble About at Clarke Quay

Clarke Quay. The favourite drinking hole of many and a crowded weekend nightspot.

And just a few hours ago, it was infested by close to 130 undead beings participating for the first Singapore Zombie Walk.

When the horde of zombies began making their shuffle across Reed Bridge and around the many clubs there, most of the living seemed repulsed yet excited about being this close to the undead. Others simply looked utterly confused at their sudden appearance at the glitzy tourist trap.

Along the way, the number of cameras wielded by passersby and active Zombie Empathizers like Red Dot Diva was countless. One amused tourist sitting at a restaurant was overheard saying to his partner, "Look at all the people with cameras. They are part of the zombie procession too!"

Singapore Zombie Walk: The Zombie Apocalypse Is Coming!

You've seen it happening at other places.

Broken store windows. Empty towns; strings of cars left abandoned on a highway. A bloody trail.

Is that a ...... .... O_O

Then... the low moans. And the sounds of shuffling feet coming closer.... closer....

It is drawing near, people. The Zombie Apocalypse will hit the shores of Red Dot Island in 32 days and counting.

Are you one of the Zombies? A Zombie Killer? Or are you a Zombie Sympathizer?

To ensure that there's a balanced viewpoint on all sides, Red Dot Diva dug around and found a Zombie (SG variant) Representative, who was willing to spill its guts to the general public. All behind the safety of a communication device, of course. And the help of her trusty Zombie Moan Translater.
