To celebrate Chinese Valentine’s Day,  which falls today this year,  20 couples shared photos of themselves in the romantic “princess hold" — the man carrying his partner with her hands around his shoulders.

The couples also had a race at The Place shopping mall. 

Citizens of varied ages took part. 

Some middle-aged women said that it was the first time their partners had carried them in a “princess hold” as older Chinese males are traditionally reserved.

The event was hosted by Luolai Home Textile to inspire people to express their love. 

It will run till August 11 with interactive events.
