Boo Or Beau?

Ghosts have starred in many feature films and they do not have to be gory or scary. Here are some sexy spirits that we love:

Clockwise, from top left:

LAST CHRISTMAS: There are rumours that Henry Golding’s character in this upcoming holiday movie is a ghost because he wears the same outfit every time Emilia Clarke interacts with him. If he does turn out to be a spirit, we will not mind if he haunts us for life!

JUST LIKE HEAVEN: Life and love get tangled up in this movie that is based on a French novel. Featuring Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo, the pair have sizzling chemistry as an architect who falls in love with the ghost of a woman haunting his apartment.

GHOST: Perhaps the most famous mystic romance of all time, Ghost was a major hit starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze when it was released in 1990. The sleeper blockbuster combined murder, supernatural elements and humour in a love story that touches viewers’ hearts even to this day, more than 30 years on.

A CHINESE GHOST STORY: This 1987 Hong Kong romantic comedy featured Joey Wong as a beautiful spirit who enchants the late Leslie Cheung. The film has a cult following in Asia and sparked two sequels as well as an animated film, a television series and a 2011 remake.

Brush up on these facts when World Toilet Day drops on November 19!

Smartphones have more germs on them than a toilet seat.

Modern toilets use six litres of water in a single flush.

Men take more time than women in the loo.

The average person will use the toilet 2,500 times in a year for about 20 minutes per day.

The first cubicle in a public toilet is usually the cleanest.

Before the invention of toilet paper, French royalty used lace.
