TRICK OR TREAT: Local athletes showed that you're never too old to dress up for Halloween
Halloween has been known as more of a tradition in the Western Hemisphere, but in recent decades the Philippines has caught the case of spooky fever.
The holiday of course is known to feature people costumed asking for treats, but if denied, give a trick instead.
Our athletes of course were not denied a chance to showcase their vivid imagination and stand out for their magnificent costumes.
Mel Gohing (Creamline Cool Smashers) as Daenerys Targaryen
Creamline libero Mel Gohing decided to wear a costume inspired by 'The Dragon Queen' Daenerys Targaryen in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones portrayed by English actress Emilia Clarke.
Gohing, though hastily prepared for the Halloween party of her team over at Luna in Bonifacio Global City, never gave a doubt on who was she going to be.
"It seems to me that a queen who trusts no one is as foolish as a queen who trusts everyone." - Daenerys Targaryen— Melissa E. Gohing (@GOHINGMELISSA) October 31, 2018

The LaSallian couple, which blossomed during Tsoi's stint as courtside reporter for the Green and White, while Teng was busy bodying up defenders as the hulking swingman for the Green Archers.
