Wow! Very interestingly we can dig out lots of information on the "Standing Eggs " from the internet and You Tubes. Anyway I am no expert to comment further as there are comments in the internet that claimed it is a myth and the eggs can stand on end anytime. Last night I did the experiment myself and managed to make two eggs stand on end on the floor but struggled for more than 20 minutes. According to Jessie on the 10th Day of CNY it was fast and easy and further more Eric and his office colleagues went out for their 'loh sung' lunch leaving the eggs standing. The best part was after they returned from lunch the eggs were still standing tall on the floor despite the rain. The next day his colleagues tried at their office desk and only one colleague managed to stand 2 two eggs while all others failed. Being very persistent, Jessie and Eric also tried in their house and her brother in law's house next door but in vain. Well I have full conviction in the Chinese Lunar calendar and I do believe there is a certain force in Spring and even perhaps at other times of the year as well. So is the "Egg standing thingy" still a myth? Believe It Or Not?
