Today is Skittle's Birthday!
Happy Birthday, Skittles!
Though we only recently met (sort of), I feel as though I have known you forever. Have a wonderful day!
Sun Yat Fai Lok (Cantonese)
In the Chinese Zodiac information that was on the paper placemat from the restaurant, you are a Monkey. You are clever and skillful to the point of genius, practical and given to detail, you generally have a low opinion of others. Your best relationships are with the dragon, rat and ram and worst are with the tiger.
Note: I am Horse.
In the Japanese Zodiac, people born in the year of the Monkey are the erratic geniuses of the Zodiac cycle. They are clever and skilful in grand-scale operations and are smart when making financial deals. They are inventive, original and are able to solve the most difficult problems with ease.
Note: the Japanese Happy Birthday translation was impossible for me to post.
