Hi dear friends!

Hi everyone,

It’s been a long time since I posted anything. Apologies to those whose comments or private mail I haven’t answered to ask me why I’m not here ….

It has been very busy days for me and honestly I haven’t been in the mood to even draw sometimes…..

But I miss you all (better that I say we miss you all)

May 1st and I’m back blogging again. 😊

With a little more information and different subjects for posts or drawings.

First of all I would like to introduce myself a little bit more. I’m a foreigner living in Japan for many years. I’m originally from Iran. I’m a mum of two daughters and a wife of my Japanese hubby. 😁

I want to introduce Japanese or Iranian culture and food…. through my drawings and photos and of course under Malus’ management. 😁

I may not be able to post everyday but will try as often as I can.😊

Hope I can make you smile while visiting my blog. ❤️

Have a great day!

Violet & Malus

Hot, Hot ,Hot summer!

Hi everyone !
Recently it is really getting hot here, unusual summer and never had experienced like this hot summer before! Very difficult to go out even for short minutes!
Violet is saying outside is hot, hot ,hot all the time and taking iced drink ( I think too much ! ) to keep cool !!!!
While she was drinking her iced tea today, she had sketched it for today’s item .
” Violet , iced drink is fine but don’t take too much sweets ! You know better what will happen to you ……! ”
” Malus, it is nice to have them sometimes , relaxing brain ! ”
” Relaxing brain!!!???? It is just a excuse for eating sweets , isn’t it? Just do like I do. You can keep cool your body and mind and it is the best way for relaxing , look…”
