A reluctant lawyer , columnist, mediocre musician and sometimes, just a wanderer.
A mother to Luqman Zain; wife to Jefree Zain. A daughter, sister and mainly just ‘Kak Long’ to the rest of the family.
She seeks solace in books and written materials. At her best when she sails the pencil across her treasured (read: bloody overpriced) Moleskine; at her worst when she has nothing to read while waiting in line.
Severely inflicted by the travel bugs. She loves the smell of a foreign land. In her ideal world, she is one heck of a fine travel writer (yeah, you laugh… I know).
She is partisan to Dostoevsky, Camus, Maugham, Hemingway, Austen, Pak Hamka, Usman Awang, Adibah Amin and bizarre travel magazines. Recently, she got hooked on Murakami.
She can’t live without wasting her money on books; she loves al-fresco. Mostly, she is just a foolish scribe who wears her heart upon her sleeve.
