This is Christina. The first time I 'saw' her was 6-7 years ago through Skype. She was the first MRKH woman who got in touch with me personally, the first MRKH woman I spoke to verbally, the first MRKH woman whom I laid my eyes on. She may not know this but after that Skype session, I burst into tears. I was 25. All my life I had felt alone throughout my MRKH journey, with no actual, specific person to refer and relate to, only websites and medical journals. 'Seeing' her right in front of me, though on screen, was overwhelming and almost mind blowing.

Inspired by Christina who's the co-founder of MRKH Beautiful You Foundation, 5 years later when I turned 30, I decided to start a support group here in my country: MRKH Malaysia. I wanted other MRKH girls to not feel alone, the way Christina made me feel that I was not alone. Now 3 years later, with the help of my newly-found Malaysian MRKH sisters (it was never my effort alone; couldn't have done it without them), our support group has ab...

Said this before and I'm going to say this again: Of all anthologies that I've written for, 'Untuk Yang Telah Pergi' is my favourite. Not often do you find antologi prosa & puisi on a bestsellers list. But after a year and a month, UYTP is still one of them. Syukur alhamdulillah. Tahniah RIPTA dan terima kasih Kedai Fixi untuk khabar ini.

Here's how I see it: There's nothing sexy or mysterious, strange or rebellious about my writings and my music. They're very ordinary, very me. I'm not gonna overhype or sugarcoat it. It is what it is. I'm scared of misusing words like avant-garde or experimental. I mean, even if my work appeared that way, I wouldn't know. Labelling is not my job; I'm not a critic. I'm a maker. I do what I like. I don't intentionally make art, though - I just make things based on my thoughts and feelings. If they happen to be "art" according to people, then cool. If not, it's still cool because not everyone has the ability to create. My biggest enemy is myself. I can't afford to waste my energy on trying to be different. I need to focus on creating and keeping it consistent. That's more important.

Nantikannya.
