Chap Goh Mei / Chinese "Valentine" Day 2015

I better brag post about our Chap Goh Mei celebration before it become too stale. Chap Goh Mei is the considered as the last day of Chinese New Year Celebration and also "Chinese Valentine Day".

On this day, if you did have enough of Mandarin Oranges or Bananas to eat..or maybe too stingy  late to buy some...you can always go to the nearby Lake Garden and scoop up some of these fruit. Heard that this only happens in Malaysia. 

Yup...on this day, those single girls will throw mandarin oranges with their phone number written on the oranges into the Lake. The guys who are single or pretend to be single will go and scoop up the Mandarin oranges. And latest trend is that some guys will also throw Banana into the Lake with their phone numbers written there...hmmmmm.....

Nah....I didn't get to join in the fun. Underage and also it was a school night. Instead, we just had boring dinner at home.
 
 

 
 Mamarazzi cooked Soy Sauce Chicken with Wood or was it black fungus. Wokay la...I like the gravy la. 

 Made some assam prawns out of the leftover prawns from the open house

 And mixed vegetables out of the steamboat leftover. 

 But lucky me.....

 Uncle Twilight Man gave us a big box of Yee Sang.Thank you very much Twilight Man!

 Supposed to open this box of yee Sang during the Open House but there was just too much food.

Since it was the last day of Chinese New Year, papa said hentam open it up and eat la. 


 Lucky me...I enjoyed it so much....up up and up...must toss high high....the higher the better. I love eating this so much that I asked Mamarazzi whether she can "cook" this again next day but she said cannot. Only available during Chinese New Year...boo hoo hoo....


Another boo hoo is that I had to wash my own school shoes and "paint" them coz Mamarazzi said she is tired of washing them daily. Coz every day I came home from school my school shoes turned gray. She asked what did I do in school. Purposely stepping on my own shoes ka?

  2. ALL boys get their shoes dirty. It is a ritual of boyhood. Means you are healthy and playing a lot. But maybe it is good for you to clean them sometimes. Sad that it is the last day of celebration...

  8. yeah.. I actually think it's a brilliant idea for the ladies to throw mandarin oranges while the guys throw bananas.. like that then can target correctly lah.. because if all throw oranges, then they will also grab some that are of the same gender, then they will throw that away and there gone one chance for that person.. Mamarazzi didn't go Amcorp Mall that day?? the lake garden beside has this throw orange banana activity every year leh~~ of course, Uncle SK heard but never go la :D
