Happy Valentine's day 2011, from Bali to the world.

Every year we have a special moment on 14 of February. We know that as "Valentine's Day". We show our affection with gifts, cards and flowers. A heart-shaped form and a rose flower are the most popular form on that day. It's because we celebrate Valentine's Day as the celebration of love. The name Valentine derives from a Christian martyrs of Rome, named Saint Valentine of Rome. That was back in 500 AD. 
How this now-hyped celebration of romantic love came about is still shrouded with mystery. Around 496 AD, then pope Gelasius declared Feb. 14 St. Valentine’s Day. Early Christian church has at least two saints named Valentine. According to one account, Roman Emperor Claudius — in the 200s AD — felt single men were better off as soldiers and forbade them to marry. Valentine ignored the emperor’s order and secretly wed young couples. An enraged Claudius imprisoned the priest.
Another version says Valentine was jailed for helping prisoners. It is also believed he converted his jailer by bringing the sight of the latter’s daughter back. Another version says Valentine fell in love with the jailer’s daughter, and sent her a note saying “From your Valentine”.
In ancient Rome, Feb. 15 was dedicated to Lupercalia, a pagan festival celebrating fertility.  Some believe the Christian church declared Valentine’s Day on the 14th to steal the thunder of the still popular pagan festival, where naked young men spanked women’s backsides with goat or dog skin whips to improve their fertility.
According to the telegraph.co.uk historical timeline of St. Valentine’s, the day entered popular consciousness in the 1600s, when Shakespeare wrote about Ophelia craving to be Hamlet’s valentine.
In 1913, Hallmark Cards produced its first Valentine’s Day card, which led to the commercialization of romance.
Now Valentine's Day becomes the busiest day for many people. For lovers, it's time to think what he/she will give as a gift for his/her loved one. For businessmen, it's time to supply the market with certain romantic products. That's only one day in a year, but affects so many people.
What does Valentine's Day mean to you?
Valentine isclosely associated with love, a special emotions feeling that is hard to be described. And you express that love with many ways such as a special gift to your partner. If you are a man, you will probably plan to give a jewelry for your girl, a rose flower, perfume, or a heart-shaped chocolate.
If you are a girl, maybe you plan to buy him a new suit, sport shoes, or sport equipment. Whatever it is, the most important is the meaning that you care for her/him. It is the way to say "I Love You"
On Valentine's Day try to make something different. It can be to :
- Create a new atmosphere at your home, arrange some flower and decoration, or just placing a valentine's card to show your partner how much you love him/her
- Spend more time with your partner, enjoy watching movie, take a walk in the park, or go shopping
- Make a party with friends

Remember that everything you do, on that special day, do it with your heart. Add meaning to everything you do, so your Valentine's Day will be memorable for both of you. Make that day the most special and unforgettable day for both of you.


If there were no words
No way to speak
I would still hear you

If there were no tears

No way to feel inside
I'd still feel for you

And even if the sun refused to shine

Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart
Until the end of time
You're all i need
My love, my valentine

All of my life

I have been waiting for
All you give to me
You've opened my eyes
And showed me how to love unselfishly

I've dreamed of this a thousand times before

In my dreams i couldnt love you more
I will give you my heart
Until the end of time
You're all i need
My love, my valentine

La da da

Da da da da

And even if the sun refused to shine

Even if romance ran out of rhyme
You would still have my heart
Until the end of time
Cuz all i need
Is you, my valentine

You're all i need

My love, my valentine

Here's Michelle Obama's advice for couples this Valentine's Day: laugh with your partner.
She says it's what she and President Barack Obama do, and it seems to be working. Their marriage, although tested throughout the years by his political ambitions - for the Illinois Senate, the U.S. Senate and later president - is going on 19 years.
"I think a lot of laughing," the first lady said at a White House luncheon with reporters who asked about the Obamas' union. "I think in our house we don't take ourselves too seriously, and laughter is the best form of unity, I think, in a marriage. 
"So we still find ways to have fun together, and a lot of it is private and personal. But we keep each other smiling and that's good," she added.
It also helps that Obama is "very romantic."
"He remembers dates, birthdays," Mrs. Obama said last week on "Live! With Regis and Kelly. "He doesn't forget a thing, even when I think he is. . I'll have a little attitude. I give him a little attitude, but he always comes through."
"Got to keep the romance alive, even in the White House," she said.
As for Valentine's Day on Monday, the first lady said her husband would do right by giving her jewelry.
"You can't go wrong," she said.
But Mrs. Obama also said they don't fuss too much over the day that's about celebrating love and affection between couples.
Last year, the Obamas spent Valentine's Day at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland.
In 2009, their first year in the White House, they went home to Chicago and enjoyed a quiet dinner at Table 52, a traditional Southern restaurant owned by Art Smith, the former chef of Obama pal Oprah Winfrey.
How will they celebrate this year? Stay tuned.
"We don't make a big deal out of Valentine's Day because my birthday was the 17th (of January)," she told Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa. She noted, too, that Christmas was just a few weeks before that.
"So by Feb. 14, we're kind of tired," Mrs. Obama said.
For her 47th birthday last month, the Obamas dined at The Source, celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck's restaurant at the Newseum in Washington.

Valentine’s Day can be a day full of fun and romance, or a day full of fighting over why your dream date never comes to fruition. This Valentine’s Day, follow my six strategies for a stress-free Valentine’s Day and enjoy your day no matter what you do or who you spend it with.  
1. Agree On How to Celebrate
You should compromise with your partner about how to celebrate. The two of you might have very different ideas about what to do on Valentine’s Day so why not talk about it ahead of time so you don’t end up having a disagreement about it later. Find something you can both feel comfortable doing as a way to celebrate the day.
2. Spend Within Your Means
Don’t spend beyond your means just because it’s Valentine’s Day. In this economy, everyone is scaling back and you should too. Gestures of love don’t have a price tag. If anything, spending more than you are comfortable with will be stressful in the end and can create bad spending habits in your relationship.
3. Change the Meaning of Valentine’s Day
If you are single, you can change the meaning of Valentine’s Day from a day solely about romance to a day about love. Make it a day to celebrate the love you have for anyone special in your life. If you don’t have a significant other, spend time with the other people you love. Everyone can actually enjoy the day, not just couples.
4. Think in Terms of What You Can Give, Not Just What You Can Get
Valentine’s Day, like many special days, often becomes all about gifts and less about the purpose of the day, which in this case is to spread love. Don’t become fixated on what you expect to receive but instead consider what you can give on this day. By give, I don’t necessarily mean you have to buy gifts. You can share your love and attention just by being kind, affectionate and considerate to your loved ones. Why not share a valentine with your family and friends (we did it when we were kids, so why stop now?). Or do something loving for someone who may be having a hard time this Valentine’s Day (maybe someone elderly and living alone or someone recently divorced or widowed). You could give them a call or a card as a much needed pick-me-up. When you’re more focused on what you’re giving than what you’re getting, you can be pleasantly surprised by how your day turns out.
5. Don’t Let Valentine’s Day Define Your Relationship
No matter how you decide to spend your Valentine’s Day, don’t measure the success of your relationship by how romantic or expensive your day was. There are many ways to celebrate it, ranging from sharing a handwritten card to taking a lavish vacation. It’s only one day out of the year and although you want to have fun, it’s what you do the other 364 days of the year that say much more about the strength of your relationship.
6. Stay in the Moment
Sometimes people get so caught up in what they think they’re supposed to be doing that they forget to enjoy what they’re actually doing. Whatever you decide to do, have fun! Go with the flow and just enjoy yourself. Valentine’s Day only comes once a year so don’t waste the day distracted by trying to make it “perfect.” It will be “perfect” as long as you can connect with someone you love.
