Seashell Chocolate

Happy Valentine's Day

Just found a beautiful song, no it is not not about chocolate seashells 🙂

Seashell –  Scala and Kolacny Brothers

Take my hand and come walk with me
down towards the enchanting sea.
I’ll run laughing across the sand.
You’ll just smile ’cause you understand.    Read more

Hari Valentine Buat Semuanya

Valentine Chocolate Roses at the Australian Parliament

Siapa bilang bahwa Valentine’s Day itu hanya buat mereka yang bercinta? Ternyata ‘Hari Kasih Sayang’ ini bisa juga dirayakan oleh semuanya seperti yang terjadi di Parlemen Australia di Canberra. Seorang anggota dari Opposition Party membagikan hadiah Valentine’s Day, bunga mawar coklat tidak hanya untuk temannya separtai saja, tapi untuk semuanya.

Sejenak rupanya mereka melupakan perpedaan pendapat  yang ada. Cocok sekali untuk sedikit merenungkan artinya Valentine’s Day. Sesaat terlihat senyum terkulum….Sejenak untuk tidak saling perang mulut, maklumlah kalau anggota parlemen di Australia sini ini sedang bersidang dan bertanya jawab, bisa ribut sekali. Pihak yang berlawanan saling perang mulut dan eyel-eyelan yang kadang-kadang jadi seperti anak-anak kecil. Ha…. Foto dibawah disaat Perdana Menteri Julia Gillard tersenyum memeriksa bunga rose coklat yang diterimanya:)

Bicara tentang Valentine’s Day itu memang sekarang semakin digembar-gemborkan oleh mereka yang punya maksud untuk mendapat keuntungan. Tukang bunga, tukang coklat, penjual kartu ucapan selamat (greeting cards), restoran dan sebagainya menawarkan dagangan khusus yang menggiurkan. Adpertensi di TV juga tidak ketinggalan.Cinta kasih antara wanita dan pria yang seharusnya bersifat pribadi dibesar-besarkan dan dikobar-kobarkan. Ini semua membuat mereka yang sedang patah hati atau yang sendirian karena cinta yang tidak kunjung tiba merasakan kesepian dan kesedihan yang mendalam.

Untuk mengurangi rasa sedih dan sepi disaat Hari Cinta Kasih ini, baik juga idee untuk menbagikan permen coklat Valentine atau hadiah kecil lainnya untuk semua teman-teman, disekolah ataupun ditempat kerja. Bukankah kasih sayang itu seharusnya buat semua orang????

What can you do to win a heart and love on this Valentine’s Day? You may try to serve a special drink. A special concoction with the magic nine ingredients. You can make it yourself and present it in two tall cocktail glasses, well chilled and decorated with some fresh strawberries.

Love Potion no 9 Drink:

  • 1 cup of sweet red wine
  • 9 basil or mint leaves
  • 9 red rose petals
  • 9 cloves
  • 9 apple seeds
  • 9 drops vanilla essence
  • 9 teaspoons strawberry juice
  • 9 teaspoons apple juice
  • 9 small pieces of ginseng root.

Put all ingredients in a pot to boiling point.  Let cool and chilled overnight. Strain before serving. As this concoction is heated, the alcohol content in the wine will be much reduced. It is very suitable for non drinkers. You can double the recipe to serve for two.

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

This love song is so nice to hear and it reminisces the funny stories of the past. So cute, honest and touching.

5 Million Kisses – Lomaticc

 

I’ll give you 5 million kisses
upon your lipses
a special this is
for my wife
Don’t want no 5 million wishes
just want my kisses upon my lips
before I die

While I was walking down
minding my own business in downtown
when I bumped into her, a beautiful pretty girl,

I knocked her books all over the floor
I hurt her arm and it would probably be sore, but i said I’m sorry, is this your stuff?
Here let me help you pick these up
Singing na nana na, let the fun begin
I wonder what she’d say if I snuck a small one in and gave her

I’ll give you 5 million kisses
upon your lipses
a special this is
for my wife
Don’t want no 5 million wishes
just want my kisses upon my lips
before I die

And now we were walking down hand in hand
having fun around town
but then her stomach hurt, cause she wanted desert
so I took my friend to the nearest place, and she got the ice cream all over her face
Man, she looked so cute
like 2 doves in love. i said let me help you lick it up

Singing na nana na, let the fun begin
I wonder what she’d say if I snuck a small one in and gave her

I’ll give you 5 million kisses
upon your lips
a special this is
for my wife
don’t want no 5 million wishes
just want my kisses upon my lips
before I die

I will dry you eyes, there is nothing left to fear
I’ll be there by your side
running fingers through your hair
put your trust in my life, hold my hand and pull me near
I would love to be, want to be with you

I’ll give you 5 million kisses
upon your lipses
a special this is
for my wife
Don’t want no 5 million wishes
just want my kisses upon my lips
before I die

I always love this song. I think it is very romantic. The mention of pastas in this song is just hilarious but it is so sweet nonetheless. It is another oldie but certainly a goodie:) For those who have fallen in love with an Italian girl, this song  certainly brings back the unforgetable memories.

Bella Italia – Engelbert Humperdinck

It seems like only yesterday that you and I were there
Walking through the market place with music in the air
You were like an angel that have fallen from the sky
I never knew how far I’ve fallen in love

I still can hear the laughter and I still can taste the wine
We did everything together, pasta all the time
Spaghetti, macaroni, tortellini, cannelloni
And every day the sun will shine

Signorina here’s to you and I and all the times we shared
Bella Italia
Signorina here’s to you and I and I’m whishing we were there
Bella Italia
Signorina here’s to you and I ’cause I will always be
So in love with you
Mama mia, signorina you are so bellissima
Bella Italia
Mama mia, signorina you are so bellissima
Bella Italia

Though now you’re just a memory that wanders through my mind
A long ago, a fairy tale, a once upon a time
When I remember you and me I know that I will always be
The man still in love with you

I never will forget the times we drove along the coast
Whenever I was with you that’s the place I love the most
Milano, Remeni, Bolognia, Roma, Napoli
Till yesterday I drink this toast

Signorina here’s to you and I and all the times we shared
Bella Italia
Signorina here’s to you and I and I’m whishing we were there
Bella Italia
Signorina here’s to you and I ’cause I will always be
So in love with you
Mama mia, signorina you are so bellissima
Bella Italia
Mama mia, signorina you are so bellissima
Bella Italia

Bella Italia

Bella Italia

Signorina here’s to you and I ’cause I will always be
So in love with you
Mama mia, signorina you are so bellissima
Bella Italia
Mama mia, signorina you are so bellissima
Bella Italia

Valentine’s Day – Sweet and Unusual Love Song (2)

This song is an oldie sung by Sam Cooke and was released on April 14, 1960. Wonderful World ( Don’t Know Much) was written by Sam Cooke and songwriters Lou Adler and Herb Alpert and it is about a guy who obviously hated school and didn’t achieve much at school, but he was falling in love with a girl who was the top of the class.

This song is unusual because of the lyrics which mention many subjects studied at school… Kind of funny but it is undeniably one of the sweet and unusual songs ever written.

Wonderful World – Sam Cooke 

Don’t know much about history

Don’t know much biology

Don’t know much about a science book

Don’t know much about the French I took

But I do know that I love you

And I know that if you love me too

What a wonderful world this would be

Don’t know much about geography

Don’t know much trigonometry

Don’t know much about algebra

Don’t know what a slide rule is for

But I do know that one and one is two,

And if this one could be with you,

What a wonderful world this would be

Now i don’t claim to be an “A” student,

But I’m trying to be.

For maybe by being an “A” student baby

I can win your love for me

Don’t know much about history

Don’t know much biology

Don’t know much about a science book

Don’t know much about the French I took.

But I do know that I love you,

And I know that if you love me too,

What a wonderful world this would be

Are you trying to find a love song that is very sweet but with unusual lyrics? I suggest you listen to this song and read the lyrics yourself to find out.

This love song was written and produced by Mike Batt for Katie Melua. She is a British Jazz, Blues and Folk-Pop singer who was born in Georgia (near Russia) on September 16,1984. The name of this love song is: “If You Were a Sailboat”

Melua said of the song: :”What I liked about the song is the fact that a lot of love songs tend to deal with the fluffy nice side of love, but this one deals with how you get very selfish when you fall in love with someone,  and you don’t want to share them with the world, you just want them all about yourself. What’s genius about Mike’s lyrics is that instead of saying that directly he uses these crazy strange metaphors, “if you were a piece of wood I’d nail you to the floor” and quite bizarre stuff and I like that. Musically it sounds like a really nice smooth love song, but the message is pretty intense and quite dark…………….”

 

 

Katie Melua – If You Were A Sailboat Lyrics

If you were a cowboy I would trail you,
If you were a piece of wood I’d nail you to the floor.
If you were a sailboat I would sail you to the shore.
If you were a river I would swim you,
If you were a house I would live in you all my days.
If you were a preacher I’d begin to change my ways.

Sometimes I believe in fate,
But the chances we create,
Always seem to ring more true.
You took a chance on loving me,
I took a chance on loving you.

If I was in jail I know you’d spring me,
If I was a telephone you’d ring me all day long.
If I was in pain I know you’d sing me soothing songs.

Sometimes I believe in fate,
But the chances we create,
Always seem to ring more true.
You took a chance on loving me,
I took a chance on loving you.

If I was hungry you would feed me,
If I was in darkness you would lead me to the light.
If I was a book I know you’d read me every night.

If you were a cowboy I would trail you,
If you were a piece of wood I’d nail you to the floor.
If you were sailboat I would sail you to the shore.
