A very auspicious day indeed


Today is Chap Goh Mei, or the fifteenth and last day of Chinese New Year. It's also known as the Chinese Valentine's Day. Now if I were living in the olden days, this would be the day when I would toss mandarin oranges into the sea (or river or longkang) in hopes that it would be picked up by an eligible suitor and we would live happily ever after. Hee hee hee!

Today is also an auspicious day as I found out here, here and here that today is also Simple American's birthday! Hailing all the way from the land of the Lone Star, he holds the honour of being my blog's very first commenter. So I'd just like to wish him (again!) a very Happy Birthday! Yay!

And today I made my first CHUP to enter T H E H U G H U G C L U B™ over at LB's site. Such a cool concept to add to the fun of blogging! Today must be my lucky day!
Any more auspicious good news to add to this post? *grin*
