The Eastern Valentine Day

Happy Chinese New Year everyone :-)

Today is the last day of Chinese New Year, it's also considered as the valentine-equivalent day for the Chinese, and in a state called Penang Island in
Malaysia, people actually do celebrate this day where the ladies would throw the Mandarin Orange to the sea, hoping to get a good husband ... and the guys
would take the canoe to pick up those oranges. I personally never been to such an event before, but I guess it would be lots of fun doing that with a bunch of friends.

Tristan was sick since last weekend, he has running nose, fever, throat infection, sore gums on the top left and bottom right, cough, and the phlegm has almost caused him to admit to hospital due to breathing difficulty. I am glad now that he's slowly recovering, I will write more when I get a chance.
