Tonight of Monday 22 January 2016 or Chap Goh Meh marks the end of the Chinese New Year 2016 Year of the Monkey in Penang. Till next year 2017 – the Year of the Rooster. we shall celebrate again.

SP Lim

Message from my sister, Cindy Lim:-

” Wishing Everyone A Very Happy Chap Goh Meh aka The Chinese Valentine’s Day. According to the Baba & Nyonya Traditions the “Young & Single” Ladies will be throwing Mandarin Oranges into the sea in the hope of finding a suitor for marriage. Tonight also marks the end to the 15 days of celebrating the Chinese New Year.

However, it will never be complete and over for me without Mom’s dessert de “PUNGAT” (Pengat, Bubur Cha Cha). ”
