Chap Goh Meh Celebration

Last night is the last day of CNY, Chinese call it Chap Goh Meh. Chap Goh Meh also known as Chinese Valentines Day. On this day, several activities will be on going. The famous and well known one will be the mandarin orange throwing event. People will write the wish on the mandarin orange and throw into the pond. It believed that your dreams will come true if you wish it sincerely before you throw.




I went to the celebration last night. I'm having fun. It's the first time ever I went to the Chap Goh Meh event.



I still remembered last year, I'm in KL doing the US visa. I met Shuahuan and Kim Mo there. We went to the Tian Hou Gong that night. :)

This year, I got to know the celebration from Kokahkok. He will be there for the volunteer. I met him there. I also met Akira. Kohahkok can recognize me easily but not Akira. When I called him, he looked at me as if I'm an alien. Anyway, good to meet them there.


There was a stage on the road and many singers are performing there. I have no idea who are them actually. There are also lion dance, dragon dance and martial art presentation as well.



The awaited event will be the fireworks. The fireworks was so nice!!! Every time I see the fireworks, I'm so happy, like I have gone back to the childhood time. I still remembered the first time I see this kind of fireworks. I saw them in KK, Sabah. That was the very first time I saw the nice fireworks with my own eyes. Unbelievable and Incredible!







Time flies, CNY over and February is also going to end next week. 10 months left for year 2008. SOOOO FAST!!!!
