Friday Frolics - What Color is Your Birthday?

Do you believe that our life is already mapped out based on the time and date we were born?

The Chinese Almanac has a way of reading a person's future given the time and date of the person. I remember my late paternal grandmother (first generation Chinese immigrant) used to leaf through the Almanac after the birth of each grandchild to see what the future holds for him or her. I'm not sure how it works but the heavier a child's life is based on the reading/calculation, the better the life. The weight is measured in taels.

Fengshui is also able to tell a person's future based on the Bazi (i.e., the date and time of birth).

Karma is another part of the equation for why we are born what we are. But not everyone believes in karma.

No, it's not my birthday today but today's simple birthday quiz says the color of my birthday is purple. What's yours?

HappySurfer's Birthday is Purple

You are the independent type. It's hard for people to peg, label, or stereotype you.

You enjoy people and things from all walks of life. You're incredibly open minded.

You tend to be a bit fickle and even moody. You can end up hating what you love and vice versa.

Your preferences and actions can be a bit mysterious at times. It's hard to predict what you'll do.

Last Week's Quiz: How Open-minded Are You?


  1. Mine is pink!
    You are the dreamy type. You can't help but be an idealist, even if your dreams get crushed from time to time.
    You have a vision of how the world should be. You work hard to make life easier and better for people.

    You are generous. In fact, you give until it hurts and expect nothing in return.
    You are sometimes disappointed. It's discouraging to have such high hopes when things don't work out.

  2. my birthday is WHITE!! :)

    I am the peaceful type. I want a lot of things in my life, but I am not attached to any of them. I am able to rise above most petty human emotions. I don't get jealous or hurt easily. I am very different from most people, and everyone I meet is able to figure that out quite quickly. While I don't exactly fit in, I can still relate to others well. People think highly of me.
