The Chap Goh Meh Celebration, also known as the Chinese Valentine's Day celebration hosted by the state government on Monday night, was a definite crowd puller as the event saw a tremendous turnout of a sea of 40,000 locals and tourists who packed the field and the streets at the Esplanade.
The event saw an array of activities and performances which were held in full swing to reveal a night of cultural enchantment. Much to the delight of many tourists who were out on the town that night, Nyonya ladies guided their moves in a mass joget with the Dondang Sayang performers, followed by the throwing of mandarin oranges into the sea by the Miss Pesta finalists and local maidens in search for their soulmate, a long tradition which was started by the Baba Nyonya community.
