It was truly a SpHOOQtacular day as kids dressed up as superheroes, princesses, zombie babies, a Green Ninja and an Angry Bird, joined the Halloween HOOQ Hangouts.

The young guests were treated to bags of sweets and a lot more treats from HOOQ while Kuya Mau and his puppets provided a few surprise tricks to keep them entertained as they waited for the screening of Monster House!
