Nurzatil Aqmar blogs at zatilaqmar.com who is an engineer by profession and a mother of two little boys by nature. When she is not in the office in black pants suit, you'd find her at home cradling her baby with her laptop or running around the house with a sweeper and trying to sort her scrapbooking stuff (a hobby she developed since uni). In between those, she blogs.

Started blogging back in foundation years, before flying off to Japan to pursue her degree. It was just a hobby back then because she needed an outlet to write and rant. Well, who knew..the hobby lasted this long!

She mostly blog about things she encounters in her life - the archives recorded her experience taking up Engineering Degree in a Japanese university, traveling throughout Japan, student's lifestyle being abroad and such. She started sharing her insights on fashion, too - it's hard not to do that when you're surrounded with fashion-forward Japanese classmates in uni. Fast forward, there were no longer ranting entries about college; but instead, she started blogging about my wedding preparation. Got married to her then boyfriend of 9 years! Blessed with a wonderful baby boy and another one, a few years after that – which explains the clueless parenting style entries (and the abundance of baby pictures)

She finds blogging awesome because she can write and share on things from her own view; which sometimes people wouldn't expect. It provides a platform for her to connect with others, too - She came to find that people tend to relate to you better when you express yourself on paper. And writing for ZALORA, one of the most prestigious e-commerce website? The best thing ever.
