MORE than 600 guests and visitors are expected to participate in Malagos Garden Resort’s "Mga Handuraw sa Baul," the company’s horror-special activity showcasing the country’s mythical creatures and folktales.

“The objective of the event is to commemorate the Filipino traditional way of celebrating Halloween which is sharing of ghost stories which highlight the Filipino mythical creatures. We’re doing this through promotion of local arts, in forms of music, cuisine, films, visual arts, calligraphy, and more. The event is part of the company’s advocacy to support local arts,” said Malagos Garden Resort marketing officer Kirvy Waga.
