Known as the Chinese version of Valentine’s Day, ‘Chap Goh Mei’ also marks the end of the Chinese New Year celebration. It is tradition for young singletons to write their names and contact details on Mandarin oranges and toss them into the river, hoping that a person of the opposite sex would scoop them up and make contact.
However, single ladies today are no longer following the standard ritual, as they now include their Instagram account handles instead on the festive fruit.
