Happy Chap Goh Meh ~

Tonight will be the last day of Chinese New Year, I used to forget what the meaning of Chap Goh Meh for some times until I had been taught it is translated from Hokkien dialect which mean “the 15th night”. Some folks say that Chap Goh Meh is the valentine day for them. Well, from what I taught back in the forum, they said that the female will toss the oranges into the lake and the desperate male will pick it up. Why? You think they dumb to wet themselves to pick it up? No, actually before the oranges been throw, the female will write their phone numbers or any contact details. This is because in the olden days, young women are not allowed to go out and tonight is one of the few occasions where young eligible women dressed to impress, were allowed to go out of their houses and perhaps find their future spouse.
However, that event aren’t so happening in my hometown, but I see that West Malaysia have this kind of event. Anyway who care that much, been single is still the best! :D
