there's a show now on channel 8 (or is it U) about flower message. learnt a lot from the show as the flowers are really beautiful. and it's really romantic to relay your love through flowers. guess i love receiving flowers, regardless of the message. more important for me is how lasting the flowers are. so my favourite flowers are actually lilies, coz they are fragrant and really last.

Ha ha ha... i guess it is safe to assume all women love flowers. Even men love flowers too. I for one like the orchid a lot! And yes, flowers are very fragile. They tend to wither quite quickly, especially in our weather. Everytime I buy a bouquet for my wife, she is extremely happy. That is till the flowers start to wither. That disappointed look on her face really tells a lot about how much the flowers meant to her. Hmm... talking about giving my wife flowers, I think it is about time I get another bouquet for her. 8p

i like wild orchides. always enjoy spotting them on the way up or down genting highlands. they grow out from in between rocks and you can't help but admire they hardiness for surviving in such conditions. one flower i wouldn't like though is the rafflesia. don't think i want to be caught within a mile of it. guess the flower language of it should be 'you have bad breathe / body odour'. hahaha :p

ha ha ha... that is a good one. I have yet to read anywhere in the world of media, that someone is offered a Rafflesia as a token of love. It would be interesting to see the reaction of the receiver. I also wonder how the fella who is offering it can stand the smell. It would be a comical sight indeed!

I love flowers, I love by just looking at them with their different colors and sizes. Flowers mean so much to me. They signify warmth, love and care. The colors may mean differently.Flowers make me feel secured and peaceful.

That is good to hear. Looks like your significant other is gonna be having one easy time to make you happy! Buy lots of flowers for you on all the different occasional dates and you will be on cloud nine liow! ha ha ha... just kidding. It is interesting to hear of someone being able to find security in flowers. Tell me, how does one find security in flowers? Help me understand how one can find security in flowers? 8p

Wao! This is interesting information i had never known in my part of the world. The only real colour meaning we talk a lot about here is yellow which has to do with jealousy-I dont even know how accurate that is!

Really? Yellow is jealousy? It is different from the list above! heh heh... another interpretation from another part of the world that is different. Interesting. So when does one give out yellow flowers where you are from? Hmm... what happens if the girl love yellow roses simply because they are her favorite color and roses happen to be her favorite flower? heh heh heh...
