What happens when you mix Eastern and Western traditions?
On the fifteenth and final day of Chinese New Year is a day known as Chap Goh Mei or the Chinese Valentines Day. This night sees the gathering of family members as they sit down to a meal together. Offerings and prayers are also held on a grand scale. Oranges, with messages tucked inside, are thrown and then retrieved from the water, as a way of pairing up eligible couples.
This series presents photos taken at a Chap Go Mei ceremony in Penang, Malaysia. The evening started, unconventionally, with a Zumba class held by the waterside.
