Contributing Writer, Amalina Farhan


In Japanese, there is a word that could describe Amalina Farhan; tsundoku – in other word, a book hoarder. She is an ordinary girl who could not bear the thought of sitting still and doing nothing. Stumbled upon a quote and since then held on to it “Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill with positive thoughts, your life will start to change”.


Had an idea to create a blog in 2008 during Chemistry class, and during one of the weekly outings, she went to her school’s cyber café and that was when a cringe-worthy blog was created. The blog lasted for many years (surprisingly) and she started writing again in 2015 at She also shares a glimpse of her life on Instagram @amalina.farhan
