Happy (Chinese) Birthday

A colleague at work is celebrating her 30th birthday tonight and brought cake to the office. She told me that in China,┬ámajor birthdays for women are 30, 40, 50 and so on, same as in the west, but for men it’s a big one if it has nine in the number – 29, 39, 49 etc.

So now you know.

Oh, and the cake was a sponge with cream.
