Dining in a fancy restaurant on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month has become a popular way to say three little words. Liu Zhihua reports.

Qixi, which falls on Aug 20 this year, is the seventh day of the seventh month in the Chinese lunar calendar. It is the day when the Weaver Girl (Zhinu) and Cowherd (Niulang) can finally reunite for a night after a year's separation, according to Chinese folklore.

The festival is promoted as the Chinese St. Valentine's Day nowadays, and many restaurants now offer the food of love.
