Starchild: Malaysian children simply love birthday parties

Kingsley Yam Zhen, nine

Birthday parties are always fun because we get to enjoy our special day with loved ones. Not only do we get a birthday cake, we also receive gifts and have fun playing games with friends.

One of the best parts about having a birthday party must surely be picking out your own birthday cake!

Since it’s your special day, you can ask for the most elaborate birthday cake of your choice: a Disney-themed cake or a superhero cake, for example. Here’s what Starchild readers had to say on the topic, My Birthday.
