Happy Chap Goh Mei

It’s Chap Goh Mei, the last day of the 15 days CNY festival. According to tradition, single girls were supposed to throw mandarin oranges into the river and the men who pick them up at the other end will become their suitors.

Of course these days, there are no more clean rivers and any orange thrown into the river will probably melt due to the pollutants in the river. And if a strange guy approaches you by the river banks, it’s much safer to srpay pepper spray into his eyes and clobber him with your steering lock.

Anyway, just for fun several years ago, a few girl friends and I did this in the river in SS2 where Marsupial used to live. Well it was more of a monsoon drain rather than river but we didn’t know where else to go. So any flowing river source would do.

Sue Ann, Wendy and I all lobbed oranges in while yelling “Good in bed!” “Tall!” “Intelligent!” “Rich!” “Kind!” “Charismatic!”……

Call it coincidence but Sue Ann now has a 6 month year old daughter, Wendy is married and trying for a kid and I’m getting married in October!

Good luck Slutty Cheryl & Pril April!
