My birthday is just around the corner--next Tuesday, but i havent got a good idea on how to make that day special yet. I'm a girl and just work for half of year. It is my 23rd birthday and also the first one after my graduation. I already have 22 plain birthdays,and i really want this one a remarkable one. Good advices are needed! Thanks in advance!

ya, Come here to say happy birthday to you in advance. when your birthday comes,I think you may post a message to tell us about that, then it is sure you will get many blessings! There are many kind friends here! I am just the same as you. I have not had a remarkable birthday yet. Even I have not had a party for any of my birthdy. The main reason is that it is always during the winter holiday when my birthday comes, without my good friends around me to have a party. ALso in my hometown, a small village, the birthday party is regarded as a way to bless one's health, and only the old persons have a party because the young guys usually are thought to be healthy. Sounds a little unusual? ^_^. It is just a traditon. Now the tradition changes, those little kids also have their own birthday parties. But I think I have been used to the birthday without any celebration when I stay at home in my winter holiday.^_^ About how to have remarkable birthday, I really have little experience. But I think if it were me, I wanna give a application to my boss for a one-day vacation leaving all the bothering schedules behind. Do something which you have planned for a long time while you have not had a chance to do it because of the busy work schedules. I think the birthday need not to be so reamarkable, but it must be absolute relaxation. Wish you have a good birthday!

Thank you, friend! I appreciate your idea of having a one-day vatation on my birthday! But, when i begin to think about where i should go later, i find there are so many places on my list and one day is not enough at all. I will visit those places one by one. I noticed you live in Nanjing,so do I! I'm so happy when you add me as your friend, thank you again! I agree with you that birthday need not to be so remarkable, and i find the imagination for that day has already given me a lot of fun! This birthday is already a special one!

yes, I do live in nanjing! Great to have u as my friend! Just the same as you, I have planned to travel to many places, but it is not a easy issue to spare time to have a absolute relaxation. Maybe I would fulfill my dream in the future. Mylot is a good place to share our opinions with others. Especially for us, it is a good site to practise our English! I like it! Also it does pay us 2-5 cents for every response we post. I think you must have found that! That's an additional gift mylot give us! Great! I think you would like mylot! Just enjoy mylot! Have a good time here!

I think you should make a big day of it...firstly start the day of by giving thanks for your big day, make arrangements to go visit a nursing home or somewhere you can make a difference to some other lives, take some flowers to the old ladies or something,maybe make arrangements with the person in charge first, this is going to make you feel so good then to actually celebrate your birthday go to a lovely restaurant with your closest friends and know you have given thanks as well as celebrating your special day.

Thanks a lot! Such an idea is meaningful and i didnt come to the idea that i should give thanks and do something on birthday. I just wonder what i should get from others! My fault! But Tuesday is a workday, i will think the idea over and choose another day!Thank you again!

If you want your birthday to be different and celebrate it with a bang, I think you should first think of your budget and consider the number of your that would come. And don't forget to serve them foods that you think is of your specialty in cooking at. But I think it would be nice if you celebrate it with those less-fortunate, children who are victims of abuses. That is what I think can make your birthday more special and meaningful.. This are just some advices that I think I can give to you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you and enjoy your party!;)

Never mind! It seems that throwing a party is such a popular way for many people to celebrate birthdays. I saw some cool birthday parties in movies, too. Though i did not do it this year, maybe i will try this way on my next birthday!

I think you should take your frienda on a surprise trip. that is the thing fiends will love the most.. spending the b'day with the family is also not a bad idea.. you can go on a quiet place with your loved ones.

The first idea you said is what i'm going to do for my roommate on her b'day this March,so i cannt ask her to do the same thing to me now!And to my family mumbers, i've spent so many b'day with them, only mum would cook noodles for me.This time, when i said my b'day is coming this Jua 1st, they asked me 'so what?want us to say happy b'day!' I nearly fainted!As to my BF, he is still hiding from me!
