Contributing Writer: Zatil Aqmar

My name is Nurzatil Aqmar, I blog at zatilaqmar.com. Engineer by profession, mother of 7-months old baby by nature. When I'm not in the office in black pants suit, you'd find me at home cradling my baby with my laptop or running around the house with a sweeper trying to sort my scrapbooking stuff (a hobby I developed since uni). In between those, I blog.

Blog

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

I mostly blog about things I encounter in my life - the archives recorded my experience taking up engineering degree in a Japanese university, traveling throughout Japan, student's lifestyle being abroad and such. I started sharing my insights on fashion, too - it's hard not to do that when you're surrounded with fashion-forward Japanese classmates in uni. And thankfully, the hobby continues till I'm back in Malaysia for good a few years ago. 

Fast-forward, there were no longer ranting entries about college; but instead, I started blogging about my wedding preparation. Got married to my then boyfriend of 9 years! Blessed with a wonderful baby boy recently, too - so as a first-time mother, expect more blog entries on my baby boy and clueless parenting style. 

The blog includes my travel logs too as sometimes my boss would send me off to overseas for work. Working so far away from home isn't so fun, but I find solace in it by looking at the experience in new perspective, and blogging about it is definitely one of it.

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

Currently pursuing a Foundation in Laws at Interrnational Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM).

Another major interest of mine is reading whether it is news paper, magazine, novel or any knowledgeable book( of course including law school books-maybe heh) written by any good author. I hope I can be a good writer in the future. My focus in ZALORA ZCOOP Publication is about lifestyle as I like to share some tips from my life.

Contributing Writer: Nur Farahuda

Hai. My name is Nur Farahuda and I'm 24 years old. I was born in 26 Januari and come from Johor Bahru. I'm a full time student at one of the IPTS that was stated in Pahang, and Alhamdulillah now it was third year of my degree. And I was taking BBA (Hons) major in Human Resources Management. 

 

After read such a several novel, then I got some idea to write something about love. Haha, that time I remaja lagi. I think that time I was 15 years old. But, while I continue my studies (diploma and also degree), seems like I have no time for that, because busy with my studies. So, I decide to focus on writing blog. At least, dapatlah I lepaskan rindu pada hobi I yang suka menulis, right? 

 

About blog,

I blog since I 17 years old, but at the time I just share about my life and nothing much. Sometimes, I don't know what to share, so I just stop there. But after 2 years (in 2011, if I'm not mistaken), then I continue with blog. At the time, I start to explore by my own self, how to blogging in the right way. So start from that, I slowly focus on writing blog until now.

 

I just like to share anything with my reader include any tips, tutorial and tips blogging, about food, travelling (sometimes), and of course about my life journey too.

Contributing Writer: Melissa Kartini

Hey there! My name is Melissa Kartini, and you've just been greeted by the nerdiest picture I own. Born in Sabah and raised in Selangor, I'm a multiracial lady who enjoys writing more than anything.

Like most writers, I have my own little corner on the Internet where I blog about my interests- most of which consist of anything to do with beauty, entertainment and lifestyle. You can find that blog right here.

Feature writing aside, I've assumed numerous online pseudonyms over the years for the purpose of writing fiction and beta reading. To a certain extent, I still do. Other hobbies I have include binge-watching my favourite TV series, reading and listening to music. On very rare occasions, I might pick up a pencil and draw.

Recently, I’ve developed an interest in learning new languages and have been taking language classes to satiate this growing curiosity. I wish to gain fluency in Japanese, Mandarin and eventually, Korean.

As for dreams... I hope to one day retire a happy, old cat lady with next to no worries in mind. Obviously this is going to take awhile.

You can also find me on Instagram.
