Rich & Awesome Halloween Houses

This year's Halloween, we decided to have a go at the rich folks' place! Woohoo! Awesome decorations, high quality candies, amazing time and mega huge rich houses. What a nice combination to spend a lovely night knocking on people's door with a smile and go Trick or Treat. Granted, I am over the age limit buuuut I have a little brother who is eligible! Rock on! So, let's start! 

I had to skip class on Halloween night because I want to tag along to take pictures so that YOU GUYS can see them. I was so busy thinking how I should impress you guys with a Halloween blog post. Anyway, this is the result. It was really dark when we went Trick or Treat. I am so happy my camera managed to capture the beautiful moment without flash. I hate flash. So enjoy!

Currently, we are heading up the rich people's area in Montreal. It is known as the Westmount. Obviously the houses are all located on a tiny mount. The higher you go, the bigger the house, the more expensive they are! My guess, at least 7 digits $$. Right now, we are probably at the 5 digits. The houses are absolutely lovely. You guys have no idea. The atmosphere and the weather was prefect for Halloween. It must have sucked for the children whose Halloween is ruined by Hurricane Sandy. 


Now we are getting to the bigger house. Cute Halloween decorations. Little plastic tombstones, skulls...etc. You see my little brother (aka Spiderman who refused to wear the stuffy mask) going for his 3rd Trick or Treat. I was a very proud sister, motherhen-ing him all the way. 


Again, another lovely house. I love the pumpkins lamps they stuck in the yard. Very cute. Now that I pay a closer attention, the yard looks like a mini park with a park bench... Ok I am officially jealous. 


Ohhhhh! This is one awesome house next to my High School (yay to crazy Catholic all Girl School in the middle of the mountain where communication is scarce... just kidding. Thank god it's not a boarding school. No kidding. My school's neighbor had a red Ferrari. Everyday I get to sit on the school stairs, watching a beautiful Ferrari drove by and parked inside the house's garage... ah... wonderful high school days.) 
Alright, back to this manor looking house, did you see that driveway? It's like going to a freaking castle! My high school (next door) was a gigantic manor too. Apparently, the former owner's wife died in the courtyard after an icicle fell on her. Yes.. my school also has secret passages. You can have 7 different ways to get to the school's cafeteria. We have a science skeleton tucked in one of those walked in closet in school... the nuns will start chanting at 6pm... and the classrooms will be all vacant and dark... wooohoooo... anyway, I will save my awesome high school years for another blog post to whoever interested to learn about a quiet all girl school in the mountain. Trololol.

Another gorgeous house. Its solarium is so dazzling at night. Don't let the look deceive you. It's freaking huge, that house. We walked to the door and I was like... it doesn't look that big from far... what sorcery is this?

Now we are pretty high up (middle) of the mount. The houses are getting bigger. Big chunk of land...etc. Absolutely gorgeous. Can't you feel the chill? Like horror scenes you see in scary movies... do you sense a bad omen? That's right. These richly decorated houses in a spooky night gave just the right scary vibe. Kudos!


This is one of my favorite houses. The creativity for decoration is top notch. You see the scattered limbs, bones and other gory details on the stairs. My little brother is obviously puzzled and was like "whyyyy is there an arm on the stairrrssss?". When he rang on the door, a teenager opened and gave him candy. I peered inside the house and my jaw dropped. I don't even know how to start describing the BEAUTY of the interior design. (I have a great passion for interior decors). So basically you see alllll the way to the back of the house. It's a gigantic living room. With a 1/2 wall size plasma TV. There is a little 2 steps stairs going to the awesome cinema-room-ish. It's huge. Trust me. I have been to many fancy big houses (yay to rich classmates for team projects), this one is amazing. Ok so I did go to a friend's house who had 2 living rooms on one floor. TWO! Rich people... 

This house is MAGNIFICENT. You can't see it clearly but you see a nice yard. A very loooong house (you can just see the width... sadly) behind me, there is a nice contemporary fountain. I can't believe there are so many of these beautiful houses right next to my high school and I didn't even go and explore them! Granted, I would be trespassing and might get arrested. LOL. That's why, my frends, I was willing to skip class to go knock on their door. My love for beautiful house... is grand.

A wickedly cool contemporary house. You see the glass door. Finally! One with wall-sized glass door. Ok so they are rich. They aren't scared to get robbed because... pssh... their neighbors are all millionaires. They ain't going to get mugged. You see them without curtains. They don't care if you see them. They know they are safe. So nice to be rich. Sadly this house didn't answer the door even though we knock on it. 
Note: If you have Halloween decoration on Halloween night, you are expected to give candies. If you ran out of candies, you are supposed to turn off the lights to tell people you are OUT. That is the unsaid rule of Halloween. I remember when we gave candies, I will be hiding in my room, hoping the kids will go away because we felt bad for running out of candies so soon. They were too cute, so we gave them a whole chunk! Poor late-comers. 

Among all the other houses, this one wins the Best Halloween Decorated House. What you see is just a small portion of the house. It's a gigantic house. They placed stereo system around their yard that will shriek randomly (for Halloween spirit). Totally wicked. 

Oh! And a rare treat to my readers. That is meeee! Squatting like a hobo (homeless) in a rich man's yard. YUP! Definitely sounds like something I would do. I am wearing a wolf-hat-scarf. It's really cute. The sides of the hat dangle all the way to your hip. They are supposed to be paws and you can stick your hands in those pockets and pretend those are your paws. Pretty neat.  

I am still proud that my camera works in the dark otherwise I won't get the chance to show you guys all these beautiful houses. Thank you *kiss camera*! I couldn't get a shot of the other decors of the this particular house because lots of people were going Ooohhhh Ahhhhhh... 

FUNNY HALLOWEEN EXPERIENCES


  1. I remembered back when I was a kid going Treat or Trick at the same neighborhood, one of the houses was so big that they turned their yard into a small maze. The owners would tend approach you from shadowed corners with CHAINSAWS! (well it made noises but no blades) I was like MOMMMYYYYYY!!!!! 
  2. Also, another one time, I followed a bunch of other kids into a house. They closed the door behind me and I was like OMG WHAT? Apparently, I followed that bunch of kids to their home. The parents were like "Who is this?" I was like "I wanna go hooome." My parents who were waiting outside were like "Did they just try to kidnap youuuu?"

So I hope you guys have a better understanding of Canadian Halloween. Well, now you can go brag to your friends about these awesome rich houses you see here!

Do You Know How to Think Rich?

I read this excellent book called Secrets of Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker. While he tells you some basic concepts, the book still manages to blow my mind.
Here are some interesting facts he wrote:

Rich people chose to get paid based on results.
Poor people chose to get paid based on time.

It's super true. If you think about it, poor students (including me) are paid minimum wage. We know we are not experienced so when our boss offered fixed hourly wage, we are happy to grab it. A job is a job, we tend to say. The truth is that we feel secure by the term "fixed". It's safe. Who cares how the business is going or how hard I am working, I get paid a fixed amount anyway. That can be pretty detrimental to both employers and employees. As employee, you are not motivated. If you are a student and you want to break away from this cycle, go be a waiter/waitress. You get tips! What are tips? Tips are money based on your results! Not time! Woohoo! That's right! Your tips reflects how hard you work. You feel super happy when you get big tips right? So work harder! That's the spirit.
When you are an entrepreneur, your income is based on your results. If you suck at running your business, you get nothing. If you succeed, bye bye poor life and hellooooo sweet big Lamborghini!
However, if you are scared of taking risk (not confident in your own performance) then you work on fixed salary. There, safety!

"Rich people believe in themselves. They believe in their value and in their ability to deliver it. Poor people don't. That's why they need "guarantees"." ~Eker

Rich people have their money work hard for them.
Poor people work hard for their money.

It's cool that you want to work hard to earn money but you got to work smart too! Take an example of a writer John. John works super hard, crashing his brain to think of a purple cow that can appeal to his targeted audience. He wrote like chicken without head to reach the deadline...etc. Yeah, John worked endlessly hard. How will he be rich if he just writes boring story? No. He can be rich when his books spread like wild fire because of his eccentric ideas/plot/characters. That's when our John can sit back and relax. He had worked hard for this. So he is going to let the money(in this case, his bestselling book) works for him. With the money he gained from royalty, he can spend it on advertisement for example. Then the ads will bring in more clients, which will generate him more revenues...etc.
John doesn't need to work hard anymore. He had worked hard and smart so now his money works for him. And he is now filthy rich.

"You do have to work hard for your money. For rich people, however, this is a temporary situation. For poor people, it's permanent. Rich people understand that "you" work hard until "money" works hard enough to take your place." ~ Eker

Pretty neat, isn't it? I absolutely love his book. I read it before I hit university and it supposed that book changes my view of the world. I'm always seeking ways to improve my thinking. I want to be rich. Who wouldn't want to be rich? The question is how to be rich! It's easy to just blurt it out but you need action to get to your goal. You can't win a race if you bum around the starting line. You need to man up and start training like mad then go to the race and run like a horde of hellhounds are chasing after you. Then you can't just run and run (working hard) you have to find ways to outrun/hide from them (working smart) that's when you will eventually reach the finish line and shout to the world: "I HAVE SUCCEEDED!"

Wouldn't you like that? I would. So if you want me to talk more on this particular topic, comment below to let me know... otherwise I will be talking about something else next week. Or you can buy the book. Good luck in becoming rich! Remember. Think like a rich man. Work hard AND smart.
