Am honoured to be invited to cover the movie screening of The Book of Life, Organised by Party Palour with Mexican Embassy and Golden Village.
The people from the Mexican Embassy and the Mexican Association are really a bunch of fun people and certainly very warm. Kids are having fun wearing Halloween costumes and have their face painted like in the movie.
For the uninitiated, the Book of Life in the Bible is a list of people who would be given eternal life and security. The movie is based on the Mexican festivities called Day of the Dead, a day of remembrance and to pray for friends and family members who has since passed on. It is somewhat akin to Hungry Ghost festival or the Pure Brightness Festival or Qing Ming for the Chinese.
