Adrift

‘Adrift’ © 2018 Carlos Aleman

My wife thought of the title again, ‘Adrift,’ which I promptly used as the hashtag. I worked from a reference photo taken by my Instagram buddy, Jayden Tan in a test photoshoot. Thanks JT! Here’s the story behind it:

“Chap Goh Mei” (aka the 15th night of Chinese New Year) is regarded as the Chinese equivalent to Valentine’s Day. And in the olden times, it was the only day that single young ladies were allowed to venture out of their homes. It was an opportunity to parade their beauty in front of potential suitors. It was also the practice for them to throw oranges into the sea in the hopes of securing a good husband.
