七夕快

today is 七夕快...
the Chinese Valentine Day...

well i never specially celebrate for this day...
because it is not practically being practiced among the people of this generation...
and i never really pay much attention for this day as well...
because nobody actually remember Chinese Valentine right...
plus we only remember Valentine Day falls only on 14th February annually...
but today's Google Homepage just reminded me of this day...
and eventually caught my curiosity to actually look for the myth of it... 

the general tale is about a love story between...
ZhiNu (the weaver girl) and NiuLang (the cowherd)...
their love was not allowed...
thus they were banished to opposite sides of the Silver River (symbolizing the Milky Way)...
once a year on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month...
a flock of magpies would form a bridge to reunite the lovers for one day...
*just for a day..how pitiful for a love bird*

i played the Google Homepage twice...
which means i gathered them twice this year..:)
