It's all about ME!

So, I've realized that I don't usually post pictures of myself. It seems normal to me, because I usually want to show you what I see, rather than show you myself. But, it's been about six months, and you may have forgotten what I look like. Besides, this month is my birthday, so I think I can get away with it!


This is my birthday cake.


This is me, on my birthday. I have to say that I have no idea how to cut a cake. Finally someone took mercy on me and took the knife away.


This is me with a coconut. Here you can buy a coconut right on the street, and they will drill a hole in it, and put a straw in so you can drink the coconut milk fresh. Fresh coconut milk tastes a lot different from canned; it's not as sweet, it tastes more earthy.


This is at my school. On your left is Suzy, who teaches English, and on your right is Cindy, my teacher!

Question. What is the animal atop your birthday cake? It's a little hard to tell from the picture.

It's a donkey. Why a donkey? My zodiac animal is a monkey, and we just went from the year of the dog to the year of the pig. I don't believe in the zodiac, but living in China it's impossible to escape this information. Why a donkey for my birthday? Wo bu zhidao (I don't know)!
