Final Fantasy Chocobo?

This year we have shared a lot of cover versions of anime songs, but we have something special and fun-filled for you today. First let us talk Final Fantasy. We all know that Final Fantasy is huge. There have been several movies, an anime series and the 15th installment in the game is on the way. Many of us have also heard some amazing cover versions of Final Fantasy music. There is however, a special artist that we have to mention, Kame-chan… a cockatiel…

Yes, you are reading correctly, out there, in the world is a cockatiel with the heart of a Chocobo and the passion to perform Final Fantasy cover songs… According to its owner Kame-chan has been singing the ‘Victory Fanfare’ from Final Fantasy non-stop. It seems this feathered diva loved to hear the music from the Final Fantasy games as its owner played and decided to memorize its favourite tunes.

To proof to you just how much Kame-chan is a Final Fantasy fanatik, we are sharing his soulful rendition of the Chocobo theme song with you, it also includes a little remix of the FF Victory Fanfare at the end. Please follow our link: http://bit.ly/Kame-chan-sings-Chocobo-theme

Here is a scene from the anime Final Fanasy Unlimited where we see a group of Chocobo attacking a monster. Featured in the video is part of the Chocobo theme song, and at the end of the battle, the Victory Fanfare. Come, Have a look, please follow the link! http://bit.ly/chocobo-attack-from-FFU

Coffee

Coffee Jelly

Coffee is a part of our daily lives. Most of us claim that we cannot function without having, at least, one cup of it in the morning. It is interesting what you can make with coffee too – milkshakes, cakes, cookies, drinks, some people even add a spoonful of coffee to their curry!!!! Coffee is a fun-filled ingredient to many recipes.

We found an interesting recipe from Japan, a coffee jelly dessert. Coffee jelly seems like the perfect treat to give that caffeine-junky friend of relative, as a dessert. Please follow our link and have a taste: http://bit.ly/Coffee-Jelly

Here is the recipe as well, please follow the link: http://bit.ly/Coffee-Jelly-Recipe
