Chap Goh Meh 2009

Today is Chap Goh Meh translated as the Fifteenth Night represents the final day of the Lunar New Year, the Chinese New Year. And yes, we celebrate Chinese New Year for 15 days. Ahem.

The fifteenth night is the night where one can see the first full moon of the New Year. That means tonight you will be able to see a full moon and its the first full moon of the year. Ox Moon yo.
And oh, today is also considered the Chinese Valentine's Day. So, you lover birds. More excuse to celebrate another Valentine's Day aye? 

On this day, girls would go and throw mandarin oranges or tangarines into the river and guys would go and pick em up. Like what mentioned with examples in this previous post titled "Chap Goh Meh aka Chinese Valentine's Day".
