Chap Goh Meh

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Hi all, i'm back.

Well, i guess most of you already knew what Chap Goh Meh is...which is basically the Chinese Valentine's Day....

I've also enclosed a more detailed info from Wikipedia...


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Chap Goh Mei)

Chap Goh Meh or Tzap Goh Mei (; pinyin:shí wǔ wěi; lit. "fifteen night") represents the fifteenth and final day of the Lunar New Year period as celebrated by Chinese migrant communities. The term is from the Hokkien dialect and refers to the fifteenth day of the first month, which is the occasion of the first full moon of the New Year.

The occasion is marked by feasting and various festivities, including the consumption of tangyuan. In traditional Chinese culture, it is also celebrated as the Lantern Festival or the Shang Yuan Festival. In Southeast Asia, however, it coincides with the Chinese Valentine's Day.[1] It is also when young unmarried women gather to toss tangerines into the sea, in a hope that their future spouse will pick it up – a custom that originated in Penang, Malaysia. In the past, this was also the only day that unmarried ladies could be seen with their partners.


So, al you singles out there, grab a tangerine, write ur name, contact number and PRAY HARD someone pick up ur tangerine....LOL....

GOOD Luck!!!!!!
