This study examined the existence of code switching done by some of the members of the writer's Chinese families living in Surabaya occuring in informal situations. The writer collected the data using a tape recording and diary notes data. The data are in the form of Conversations taken in the real situations. Then, the writer transcribed and analyzed the data under the following parameters (the subjects, age, background of the family, first language, degree of fluency of a language compared with the others, marital status, time, setting, topic and languages that were used). Based on the analysis, that writer found out that the switchings that mostly occured were these from Indonesian to Chinese (Mandarin). The other findings show that the main reasons causing the people to code switch were: 1) The background of the participants who are from pure Chinese families. 2) The participants consider having Mandarin as the first language and Indonesian and/or Javanese as the second language. 3) The participants' feeling of being more fluent and easier to use Chinese language (Mandarin). 4) The participants were willing to express their ethnic identity and solidarity with the adressees. 5) The topic are the ordinary ones. Since the research covers only the "insiders" of the writer's Chinese families, it can not represent all the Chinese families in Surabaya. Therefore, it is suggested that the other researchers, who deal with Code-switching, may include a wider scope. i.e: Indonesian Chinese families who are not bound into one's relatives, or Indonesian Chinese compared to the other tribes living in Surabaya in particular, and in Indonesia in general.
