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.

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

Relationships Abroad vs. France

17 July 2019 at 10h30

When I went back to France after travelling, I had the necessary distance to better realise what had happened to me in Australia. This is an analysis of social relations abroad, in comparison with France.

Here is the Rob Waldinger video:

Annyway. To get me out of this situation, I had to clear things out.

It was a difficult and heartbreaking exercise to do, but liberating once finished.
Good luck to all those who have and had to go through this. We feel light once this process is done.
Looking forward to meeting my future friends!

Grandpa left us…

1 March 2019 at 9h00

I still remember the times when, as a child, he used to take me to the garden.

With all the weight of my 3 years old, a little clumsy, I enjoyed “helping him”, while he progressed with a confident gesture.

I have always had green fingers since.

I am going to miss you.

Rest in peace. Love,
