Chap Goh Meh

Tomorrow is Chap Goh Meh, 15th day of CNY. It is also Chinese version of Valentines day.

According to tradition, single ladies will take this opportunity to seek for their prince charming by throwing mandarin oranges into lake. Of course before throwing it, ladies need to write down their name and contact number on the mandarin orange. In the meanwhile, men will be in that lake, they will collect the oranges. That is where the fate play its role. Whoever gets whoever orange, that mean that whoever is his match from heaven.

To make it easy to be pick up, make sure choose a big mandarin orange and floats well, and write with waterproof marker.
That is the tradition, but I don't practice it. It is because I prefer to eat those mandarin oranges.

Happy Chap Goh Meh to all! Happy Valentines Day!
