An International Birthday Party

How cool it would be, if I got the chance to celebrate my birthday here in Germany....

Today, I attended a birthday party of a friend of mine. She is an exchange student just like me. She comes from Xiamen, China. :D She officially turns sweet sixteen!

A birthday party consisting of Germans, American, Malaysia, Italian and of course herself being a Chinese from China. The party was celebrated with some close relatives and friends but can this party be any cooler with people from all over the world?! 

Germans. American. Italian. Malaysian. Chinese.

Exchange students UNITE!
Friendship always starts strangers meeting, getting to know each other and start building a strong bond with each other.

The world we live in today is so big yet so small that you never know who you might meet in the corner of the earth that where you are. In the last eight months being in Germany on this exchange program, I have met so many people from different parts of the world. We are of different nationalities, backgrounds and culture but the thing we all have in common is, we are just trying to live and enjoy our lives to the fullest and discover more of this beautiful world.

The thing is, it is never boring to meet new people because you never know what kind of interesting things you can actually discover when you start talking and exchange knowledge with them.

I am really glad to have gotten the opportunity to meet all of the other exchange students today! :)

If I were to celebrate my sixteenth birthday here, my greatest birthday present would be to be on this awesomemazing exchange program.

I didn't have any doubts before coming for this exchange program, neither do I have any doubts while being on this exchange program because participating in this exchange program has been the best decision I have made in my life. I am very lucky to be given this opportunity to participate in this life changing program.

I would like to thank my parents and my siblings for the support for me to go on this program.Not forgetting, AFS, the organisation I am with for this exchange program for the given opportunity.

I have been put through all kinds of situations, some that I don't think you can ever imagine, but it was because of them that I have seen and learned so much. One thing I know for sure is that they certainly have shaped me good in one way or the other. :)

Before I end, I would like to wish Sibei again, HAPPY SWEET SIXTEEN! I hope you enjoyed our company and your many presents that will keep you well prepared for the COLD German Winter. :D
