In ancient times, single Chinese ladies would write their particulars on mandarin oranges and toss them into the river on Chap Goh Meh, aka Chinese Valentine’s Day. Guys who netted the oranges would then look for the ladies based on the information on the fruit while hoping that they’re able to hit it off.

The question is, does this tradition still work in this modern day where dating apps have become increasingly popular? To find out, two Malaysian YouTubers, Wei Hong and Yiyi, conducted an experiment during the recent Chap Goh Meh celebration this year. 

They bought four boxes of mandarin oranges, with each box containing 32 pieces. Yiyi then wrote her WeChat ID on every single fruit, which would later be tossed into the water at night.

Needless to say, their experiment garnered quite a lot of attention, because everyone tossed one orange but they unloaded a whopping 128 oranges into the water. Increasing the odds by miles! At 10pm sharp, the event took off and guys were seen busy netting the oranges that floated in the water.

So, with 128 oranges tossed out, how many people actually contacted Yiyi through the WeChat ID she wrote on the fruits? The answer is 324!

Among the 324 new friends, some said,

“I’ve netted around 10 oranges and they’re all yours, how many did you throw in?”

“I’ve netted quite a few of your oranges, looks like you really needed some friends. I can guarantee that you won’t regret after knowing me as your friend. I will put the smile back on your face. Will you trust me?”

This guy is smooth…

Anyway, Wei Hong and Yiyi’s experiment has proven that tossing oranges on Chap Goh Meh still works! But don’t throw too many lah, kasi chan to other people as well right? 

So guys, if dating apps have disappointed you over and over again, why not take a leap of faith and throw some oranges on Chap Goh Meh? Do it the traditional way!
