1. When is your birthday?

Answer – I came to this world on April 14th twenty two years ago. Although I guess no special international events took place on this day, but to my parents, I believe the day I was born had changed their lives.

2. How do children celebrate birthdays in your country?

Answer – From my personal experience, most children would celebrate their birthday by throwing a party at home with their friends and families. The food can be either home-cooked or take-away from food stores. Traditionally, kids would sing the Happy Birthday song, have meals to gather, play some games or watch movies.

3. How do you like to celebrate your birthday?

Answer – I’d like to get some gifts and have cake and stuff. Or make a long trip to Europe with my friend. I usually just stay at home with the family and have a cake.

But this year I will go out to a club and dance with friends. I want to do something different. I don’t particularly care about my birthday. However, being surprised by a loved one just to make me know just how much they care is nice. I usually treat it as any other day.

4. How did you celebrate your last birthday?

Answer – Well last year I was away from home on my birthday, thus I cannot have the chance to celebrate my special day with my families and friends. However, I still had a small party with some close friends living nearby and got showered with birthday gifts. They also took me out for dinner to enjoy palatable dishes. I felt so happy to know such nice friends.

5. Are birthdays more important for children or for adults?

Answer – I think it’s important for children and older people. For middle-aged men I think it is not that important because generally they are too busy with work or being a parent.

6. What kind of birthday gifts do you like to receive?

Answer – Well I think I would love to receive something useful for decoration such as litlle stuffed animals or mini indoor plants, as I tend to take some of those gifts with me when I’m away from home.

7. Is there a different between the way you celebrated your birthday in the past and in the present?

Answer – As a grown-up, I now prefer keeping my birthday as simple as I could. Because me, my friends and family members have become so busy with our own schedules that it is quite difficult for all of us to meet up for fun. Thus, the party might be re-arranged with only a few people showing up.

Those who cannot make it to my birthday party would either give me a call or send me messages or cards.
