Sharing the Chinese Birthdate

It's fun knowing that there's someone else who shares the same birthday as you. It's memorable when you get to celebrate it with that someone else. It's even sweeter when that someone else was born exactly on the very same date, same month, same year as you. Which also means, sharing the same Chinese birthdate. The best part? When that someone else is a very, very good friend of yours. *grin*

Wan Nei is that someone else. Someone whom I've met on the first day of college back in 1997. Someone whom I've became instant friends with. Almost like sisters. Someone whom sat directly in front of me in class on that first day. Then we sat beside each other right at the back of the class throughout that year. And until today, we are still great friends. We celebrated our 18th birthdays together that year, right after our Finals. We celebrated our 25th birthdays together last year. Within the past 8 years, it was only last year when we both realized we shared the same Chinese birthdate. *duh* Of course la, if you're born on the same date, same month, same year, sure la Chinese date also same, right? *Double duh* Well, actually it was Wan Nei whom realized that fact first when she wished me "Sheng Ri Kuai Le" online. *smile*

Remembering that, I rang her up just now. "Sheng Ri Kuai Le, Jie Jie!!!" . I call her "Jie Jie" (Big Sister) coz she is about 5 hours older than me. Although it's just like any other day, like another birthday, it brought us much excitement.

"Sheng Ri Kuai Le!"
"Thank you, thank you"
"Sheng Ri Kuai Le to you too!"
"Thank you, thank you"

*grin* Our birthdays will fall on a Sunday. We will arrange to meet up then. Until then, "Sheng Ri Kuai Le" to Wan Nei and I. *smile*
