Chinese Valentine and Chap Goh Mei 2012

Wow, 15 days of Chinese New Year passed just like a rocket flying across the sky. Time flies, and here come the rumble mumble jungle time!

I was looking forward for this great event, as I know Malaysian will be shy yet fun to mingle around during Chap Goh Mei. During this event, the session will be taken place at PJ Lake (near Amcorp mall) or Bandar Tun Razak Lake (opposite HUKM). I heard that Klang had it too but it was banned.

Since I was free, I drag my siblings to go hit the road of throwing and picking up tangerine session. Although we have to pay (where we think it is just for fun, we pay for fun? Boring), we still join in the fun, as it happens only once a year.

The best part was… thanks to re-creation of Chap Goh Mei tradition way, the event organizer allows the guys to pass banana fruit to the ladies whom they have good feeling the first impression they look upon on them. Amazing huh? What a trend!

So I went in there, and see who I found! Yes, the god of love….but how come every god is old? Hmmm…

And went in when the security guard told me: “Guys at the left, girls at the right of the pool.” Well, you think is a police patron or what? Just kidding.

After few games, singing performance session, here comes the fruity session. Yes, the fruits war game! All the ladies throwing the tangerines, and check out the picture below:

Once the emcee shouted stop, the men are still swarming and ‘swimming’ in the pond. So cute!

Okay, here is the best part, the banana give out time! The guys will cross over the pool and pass the banana to the girls, but it was a chaos, when some men throw into the pond (I think they think the girls or guys will pick up their bananas?)

So end up few bananas become banana boats.

The worse part, some guys threw the bananas to the ladies. Huh? Come on, you hit the ladies for crying out loud, I was the victim, one of the bananas hit my arm hard! Ouch!

Are you alone?stuck...
And when some men telling the girls: “It was a war, the fruits are flying all over, so if we have fate, we keep in touch ya!” as the man passed over the banana to the girl, and he flew back to the other side.

Some men walking slowly and observe the lady which he really likes, then only pass the banana to her. It was quite a shy moment yet happy!

As I and my siblings walked back, we passed by the cute stalls selling nice lovely valentine gifts and clay crafts.
