  1. How long have you been living in Thailand? We arrived 6 years ago now, time flies, it's crazy.

  2. What brought you to Thailand? We really wanted to live abroad, we like very much to discover new landscapes, new people, new cultures. I think It's a wonderful posibility to open your mind and discover new horizons.

  3. What is your favorite thing about living in Bangkok? I like to feel safe, for me and my girls. I like that people are (almost) always nice and happy.

  4. Can you speak any Thai? Nit noy.

  5. What is your favourite Thai dish? It's more an thai/muslim dish, the massaman curry, I love it. Best comfort food.

  6. How do you like to spend your days off from work? I don't have too much days off, even when i'm off i'm thinking of new creations, nice shooting... I like to visit some places who can bring me creativity and go in the green.

  7. When you are out of the country, what do you miss the most about Thailand? The kindness of people (especially towards children).

  8. When did you start selling products for Melody From Paris and what made you decide to start a business? I started few years ago. I started creating stuff for my daughter and see her and others little kids reactions around her pushed me to continue.

  9. What does Melody From Paris mean? Almost nobody can handle to say my real name (yet so close). So around 10 years ago when I started to travel I told people "ok just call me Melody, it's easier". The "From Paris" part is because obviously (by accent and bad english) I'm French and a Parisian.

  10. What is an interesting fact about your business that people may not know? I put a lot of care and love doing each creation. Each creation is unique and i create each order one by one, so i think about the child, how he/she will react, how he/she will enjoy, what the name of the baby is to come... It brings me a lot of happiness when parents send me pics of there child with my creations.

  11. We presume your family and children are a big inspiration to your creations. What are their favourite products of yours?  Indeed my girls are my first inspiration. They are little bit spoilt because I create first to see their reaction and create a full universe for them. They love of course their teepee where they spend a lot time reading, hiding, playing, drawing and even sometime sleeping inside. They like a lot their bed because I create curtains and it's a bit the same spirit of hiding to read a book during the night time. Recently I created a theater and it was a big hit in the apartment, we have to leave it in their door to play all the time. And my oldest like my fairy and little love the soft rabbit. I'm over the moon when I see them enjoying my creations.

  12. Which is your best selling product? The teepee is a big hit and I'm very happy a creation like that stay almost forever in a family.

  13. What is your favorite holiday of the year and why? I love songkran and loy kratong because these are wonderful celabrations full of joy and hapiness. I love birthdays of my girls because I try to create special and unique moment but to be truly honest I'm a huuuuge fan of chirstmas, I looove all the spirit it brings.
