How do I identify myself?
A Muslim. A life-long learner. A woman. A wife. A daughter. A mother. A homemaker. A sustainability practitioner.
You’ll see many of the entries written reflect the point-of-view of the above.
I currently live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I wasn’t born a city girl. In fact, I grew up in a palm oil plantation since my father managed one of the many estates. I was considered academically-inclined (which embarassed me most of the time now that I am an adult), collecting so many A’s throughout my schooling years that eventually I won a scholarship that allowed me to go to the UK to further my studies.
I went to the University of Manchester thinking that I’d graduate and become an oil and gas engineer, but with my Chemical Engineering degree and me being pretty much enlightened – I decided to pursue a career in sustainability area back in Malaysia.
I was very contented and satisfied being single all those years until this one man had the courage to ask if I’d marry him. I said yes, and ten months later we were married. And some 11 months later, our son came, followed by our daughter – whom we named Isa and Khadijah.
After five years working I decided to take a career break and become a full time stay-at-home mother and a part time student at a local university.
I used to love politics and football.
Now I think I prefer reading, sleeping, spending time with my loved ones more. Oh, I do love writing too.
