I usally celebrate my birthday by bringing Indonesian food into school and me and my class have a meal but this is only when my birthday is on a school day.
When my birthday is not on a school day I have a small family birthday party including one or two of my friends (thats normally my best friends) and we all go to this restaurant called Damons,they cook the most delicious food ever but not so brilliant that they are my favourite restaurant. Then we all go home and blow the candles on my cake (which is toffee fudge flavoured).

 Just to let you know, I'll tell you what my family's Chinese zodiacs are:

  1. My Dad: Dog
  2. My Mom: Monkey
  3. My Brother Mati: Sheep
  4. My Brother Casper: Monkey
  5. Me: Snake

Kind of true!
