LITRATONG PINOY: kahel (orange)

last friday, mikee and gabie's school celebrated chinese new year. they had to go to school wearing chinese costumes. and when they got back from school, they each have two oranges.

oranges

it's customary for the chinese to give away 2 oranges during their new year festivities. i'm not exactly sure what it really means. but i remember a friend saying that it's lucky because the shape of the two oranges makes an 8 which is a lucky number for the chinese. and that should you receive a pair of oranges for good luck, you should never ever eat any one of them. because if you eat one, the "8" becames a "0". yeah yeah i know, it's corny. not mine though. i just borrowed hahaha

nung nakaraang biyernes, nag-celebrate ng chinese new year sa school ni miggy at gabie. lahat sila ay pumasok na nakasuot ng damit na pang-chinese. at nang umuwi sila galing school, meron silang tig-dalawang piraso ng orange.

nakaugalian na ng mga chinese na mamigay ng 2 orange tuwing new year nila. indi ko sigurado kung ano talaga ang ibig sabihin nito. pero naaalala ko na me isang kaibigan ang nagsabi na magdadala daw ito ng swerte dahil ang korte ng dalawang orange ay "8", at ito ay isang suwerteng numero para sa mga chinese. at hindi raw dapat kinakain ang kahit isa sa mga ito dahil pag kinain mo na ang isa ang "8" ay magiging "0". ang corny no? hehe ok lng. indi akin na idea to hehe kinopya ko lang.
