Chinese Birthday

Today is YX's Birthday according to the Chinese Calender (7 月15)How time flies. It is another year again. Actually I'm not aware of the chinese date when I was admitted to the hospital 3 years ago to deliver YX. I do not have the habit to look at the chinese date. To think back, I was actually being admitted to the hospital on the double 7 月14 (Ghost month). Eeerieee...... Double because in the year 2006, there are two 7 months in the Chinese calender. The hell gate openned twice !

There will be no celebration today, but FIL already booked a table for this coming Saturday to have a simple dinner. So, we will be celebrating YX's birthday on Saturday and as promised, will buy him a mini cake for him to blow the candles.

A little conversation with YX.......

Me : Boy, your birthday is coming and we will be buying you a small cake.
YX : *showing his happy face* I want to blow candlesssss!!!!
Me : Sure. It is your birthday and you sure can blow the candles.
YX : Only YX blow. Others cannot blow arr.
Me : Aik....we should take turns and let E koko (YX's cousin) and mei mei to blow as well.
YX : No....I don't want E koko to blow. I want to blow all...only myself blow.
Me : I thought we should take turns and share? After you blew, then E koko turns, then mei mei turns.
YX : Hmmm........(a long pause, but still no answer)......

Kids are kids. No matter whose birthday is it, they just love to blow the candles.

Happy Birthday YX !!


  1. Oh, yes! As a child, I love to blow candles too! Even when there's a blackout, I love blowing them out when electricity was back again.

  2. Chloe was born in the 7th month too (the earlier one). Her is 7 month 20. And until now, she still can't blow candles :-( She can't blow anything for that matter... bubbles, whistle.. all fail haha!

  3. I prayed so hard telling sunshine stay put inside mummy. Coz I'm afraid of the 7th Month. I don want to be left alone in the hospital.

  4. Alice ~ That reminds me of my younger days too! My brother and I love to do the same. LOL.

    Chloe ~ your Chinese birthday coming soon. Happy Birthday again!

    Marie ~ LOL... when it is time for delivery, you won't even have time to think of the 7th month!
