元宵節,情人節 Chinese Lovers' Day



  元宵節,情人節,花好月圓,有沒有人到河边抛柑呀?

  在马來西亚,單身男女在元宵節聚集到河边或湖边抛柑,並在柑上面写下姓名和联络方式,希望就此结识可以携手相伴的有缘人!当然今时今日,看热闹湊热闹玩闹的人居多,但认真的人也不少!

  祝愿天下有心人可以早日找到意中人!

  Today, the 15th day of the 1st lunar month on Chinese Calendar, is the Lantern Festival. It's also well-known as the Chinese Lovers' Day (Chinese Valentine's Day)!

  In Malaysia, we have a special festival for those who are still searching for their other half. They gather at the river bank, throw tangerines (with their name and contacts on it) into the river, and hopefully their message could go to their destined partner in life! Once again, the Chinese tangerines play a big role in this festive day!
