tomorrow is chap goh mei

Wow... one more day and Chinese New Year will be over! Tomorrow is the last day of Chinese New Year or better known as Chap Goh Mei (15th night). For those who do not celebrate Chinese New Year, just like the twelve days of Christmas, we Chinese celebrate Chinese New Year for 15 days, so to speak. It is in accordance to the lunar calendar and most families and Chinese business people will celebrate this evening with a special dinner or gathering with friends, business associates or loved ones.

This is not something we do every year but due to our busy schedule, we are meeting some close friends for a makan session and to celebrate this special day. This will be the last night to toss Yee Sang and to distribute ang pows too. What matters for us is the time to get together and catch up with one another especially with our good friends who just returned from Sydney.
