Happy Chap Goh Meh 2012

What is the most interesting on Chap Goh Meh is the orange throwing event by the sea. Long time ago, as in 60 years ago maybe, the girls were not allowed out of their homes to mix with boys. However, on Chap Goh Meh, they were let out of the home and they would throw oranges and make wishes. In Hokkien, it goes something like “Tim kam, chua ho ang” or “Throw Mandarin orange, marry good husband. This festival is also regarded as the Chinese version of Valentine's Day.
Penangite usually will cook bubur cha cha on 15th day of Chinese New Year calender 

Chinese New Year is going to end soon. So, I wish you all  ‘天天好天’
