So I asked some of my Malaysian MRKH sisters on what does it mean to be an MRKH woman, and this was what they came up with. <3

MRKH Syndrome is not a disease; it's a condition. It's not terminal or fatal; it's a lifetime battle of surviving various sicknesses, whilst struggling with self esteem and physical-mental health issues.

MRKH happens to 1 in every 4,500 women all around the world. We MRKH women were typically born without an organ - the uterus - impacting the kidneys, the skeletal, and the hearing, plus abnormalities in connected organs.

Almost every MRKH case is unique. It affects us in many different ways: Physically and psychologically, mentally and emotionally, socially and sexually.

I am thankful I am not the only one. I am grateful to be born and tested. I have come to learn that I'm a living proof of God's secrets.

I am an MRKH woman. MRKH does not define me; it strengthens me. God willing.

Last week at Sharpened Word, I met Selina Siak Chin Yoke, an Ipoh-born writer. Her debut novel, The Woman Who Breathed Two Worlds, has just been published by Amazon. Yes, THE Amazon. Handpicked by its editor to be in Kindle First (an invitation-only programme for authors). Besides Amazon, the book is also available at Waterstones (UK), Barnes & Noble (US), Booktopia (Australia), Kinokuniya (Malaysia & Singapore). AND, in three formats; in print, as a Kindle e-book, and as an audiobook.

She's 40/50-something (sorry I forgot!), just had her manuscript published, finally, for the very first time after rejections, and now it's already rated as 4.4/5 on Goodreads.

She had been a theoretical physicist and an investment banker-trader most of her life.

She was diagnosed with cancer and was going through chemotherapy when she decided to not let her dream of writing, die.

Thank you, Selina, for showing me that it's never too late to realize my dreams. God I need your badass strength and confiden...

Murid murid Pondok Puisi yang saya kasihi, dari edisi pertama di Rumah Titi hingga hari ini jauh di JB (terima kasih @projekrabak khususnya Seyn Jukey), saya mohon maaf kalau selama ini saya bukan cikgu yang baik, kakak yang baik. Saya mohon ampun kalau kadang kadang saya tak sempat jawab mesej awak, balas emel awak. Saya akui kekurangan saya kalau ilmu yang saya kongsi belum cukup lengkap untuk beri awak keyakinan diri.

Apa pun, sayang, tulislah.

Tulislah terus, jangan mati walau keluarga mengata dan kawan mencerca. Jangan tunggu kelulusan saya atau persetujuan pembaca. Berbeza dengan orang yang awak cinta, yang mematahkan hati awak dalam sunyi sepi dan hingar bingar - sekeping kertas putih tidak akan menyakiti atau meninggalkan awak; ia malah mendengar, mendengar, dan mendengar.

#PONDOKPUISI: 
bersama Fazleena Hishamuddin & Wani Ardy

Ahad, 16 Oktober
12 tengahari - 8 malam
Lot B, Mall of Medini, JB

Daftar: WA 016 232 6710
Info: fb.com/pondokpuisi

Tajaan Iskarnival 
Kelolaan Projek Rabak

PENGUMUMAN: PERUBAHAN FORMAT & MASA OLEH ISKARNIVAL

Jangan gusar, saya dan Fazleena akan tetap berada di JB esok hari. Cumanya, Pondok Puisi kali ini berbentuk perkongsian dan bukan bengkel sepanjang hari. Durasinya juga dari jam 12 tengahari ke 3 petang, bukan 8 malam lagi. Semuanya percuma. Harap maklum ya? Biar ringkas, kita bikin jadi padat. Biar santai, yang penting ilmunya sampai. Walaupun ini pengenalan, ia bukan alasan untuk anda tidak bertanya sebanyak mungkin soalan. Walk in. Ask us ANYTHING.

Terima kasih Projek Rabak yang membawa kami dari jauh. Jumpa di Mall of Medini esok!
