Mother--

In Chinese:母亲,妈妈,妈,娘亲,娘,the way to call others mother(honorific) 令堂  
German: die Mutter
English: Mother, mom...
Japanese: お母(かあ)さん,another one is ? kinda forgot...the honorific

So far I know...

---Flower for my mother...gillyflower, but I'll choose lotus, remind me of lovely summer while not sweltering, and for her eternal youth, elegant and clean feature (including clean house till a stainless) as lotus...and mostly, getting up so early...

--Songs for mother, nah...not "Mutter" by Rammstein, ahemm.....but 大海, my mom's favourite
“大海啊大海,就像妈妈一样, 走遍天涯海角 总在我的身旁”  and I'll change it into.."妈妈啊妈妈,就像大海一样,走遍天涯海角 总在我的身旁"

---An animal for my mom...toucan...famous for the  famous "noises" and keep on busy chattering and a bit too protective to her babies, anyways, but sweet. lol

世上只有妈妈好,有妈的孩子像块宝!!

妈妈,母亲节快乐!!
I don't know if I like you or love you, want you or need you, all I know is I love the feeling I get when I'm near you.
