Cap Go Meh in Singkawang

Cap Go Meh is the 15th day in the Chinese Lunar Year, the first full moon of the year. This year it falls on February 21st.
In China it is also known as the Lantern festival. In South-East Asia, Cap Go Meh is sometimes called the Chinese Valentine Day, because it is a day when young unmarried women gather to toss tangerines into the sea, in a hope that their future spouse will pick it up.
