Our Chap Goh Meh aka Chinese Valentine’s Day

On the 15th day of Chinese New Year or Chap Goh Mei, the Yaps had their customary dinner at a Chinese restaurant. This year was at Super Tanker. By the time we got home, it was already 11ish pm. The moment we entered our house, we heard explosive bangsnaps of fireworks. We ran excitedly to the window to catch a better view of it.  It was a spectacular one and  was released from the Thean Hou temple.  We could watch it very clearly from the 5th floor of our unit.  Drama Queen and I rushed to our handbags to whip out our phone and start snapping the pix of the fireworks display…

Our 15 days Chinese New Year celebration ended on a high crow this rooster year. What is so special about Chinese New Year to me?  Apart from all the reunion dinners and special food, it is the time I reminisce about the birth of my no. 2 on ‘chor 8‘ (8th day of CNY) in 2005.  This year her Chinese birthday does not fall during CNY nor on Valentine’s Day. In two days, my very loud and brazen middle child will turn 12 and will officially get her own My Kad 🙂
