One of Australia’s special charms…

They might look impressive with their neon yellow crest, these birds are nevertheless very mischievous.

Here is an example of a cockatoo biting, for example, the tails of poor kangaroos:

If you’ve never heard the sound of the beast, take a look on Youtube:

Happy listening! Or not.

Was it really worth it?

So many years spent working on my English, learning elegant and polite sentences…and all these efforts got shattered upon arrival in Singapore.

Can you believe this?

Happy summer holidays everyone, whether you are on a language study holiday or not!

I think it’s trying to send me a message. Like to stop being a glutton.

Happy egg hunting everyone!

The not so very reassuring things…

This is how to spend your Zen session freaking out in case the masseuse would break your neck…

Next time I’ll choose hammam if I want to relax. Less risky 😉

Have a nice week my darlings,

Beautiful and Sweet Year 2023

2 January 2023 at 10h21

If you survived the holiday season, may 2023 be sweet and less tumultuous than 2022, like these mountains.

During the holidays, I borrowed the book “Watercolor for Relaxation“, which is a watercolour exercise book by Angelica Torres. I had fun recreating a pink version of her “Serene Rainy Mountains” from Mianshan, Shanxi province.

Very relaxing indeed to pick up my brushes and immerse myself in the fluid colors that I love so much during my holidays.

May your year 2023 be sweet, but also filled with joy and creation!

Lots of love,

Malika Smith

Do you have the same issue?
If you know THE recipe that pleases everyone, feel free to share it please! It would help a lot!

On a different note, I am super happy to inform you of the release of my new logo that you will now find on my drawings:

We created it with the amazing graphic designer Cindy Guibouin of Vision Design.

We worked hard for many days to get this beautiful result. I hope you will like it as much as we do!

If you need customed graphics for your logos / business cards / flyers or other, do not hesitate to contact her! She will be happy to accompany you throughout your project.

Enjoy your meal my friends! With or without any gluten 😉

Earmuffs maybe?

Enjoying the swimming pool – Yes!
Enjoying the swimming pool with 80dB of continuous jackhammers / planes / construction works etc. – No.
I feel the desire to live isolated in a bubble (I mean, phonically isolated) sometimes.
Or, to live in a vast field without any neighbours… Aaaaw, that’d be sooo good…

But how do they do??!

13 March 2021 at 16h34

When you’re in England and you’re walking through a frozen park, witnessing this kind of “normal” scene:

But how do they not freeze to death?

They are equipped with a super powerful internal central heating system or what? Because I can put as many layers as I want, I just stay frozen…

It’s killing me, just by looking at them, I am freezing even more. What is their secret??!
