About

Welcome to A’ishah K.

What?

A place where I write about productivity and minimalism. (I also dump my poems here)

Who and where?

My name is A’ishah Kamaludin. A 29 year old mak cik from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I love to inspire people to be the best of themselves and live simple but the most beautiful life.

(Since) when?

I’ve been blogging for a while, on and off since 2008 (or maybe 2006, I can’t remember) but they are mostly just daily journal entries and pointless rants, Facebook and Twitter are taking care of that now (actually Instagram story most of the time).

Why?

A writer

I started this blog because I really enjoy writing. I would like to share my thoughts to the world. My favorite topics to write (and also to learn) are on personal development, productivity, psychology in general, human’s mind and behavior, relationship and┬ásimple living.

I recently encountered minimalism and have been converted since then. I’m currently trying to audit and edit my life and possessions. It’s really a fun process that leads me to discover more of myself.

A poet

Poetry is my favorite form of self expression. I’m not the best writer and poet. English is not my mother tongue and I always feel that there’s always something wrong with my grammar on top of my narrow vocabulary. However, I don’t want to stop writing just because of that. Content is the more important thing (while also trying to brush up my (s)words). At the very least, I guess I just write for myself – as a daily journalling practice to stay focused and sane. Blogging and writing poetry indeed have helped me a lot in improving my mental health throughout many phases in my life.

Living for the arts

Other than poetry, I also enjoy music and speaking gigs, easily inspired by cute sketches, graphic art and design, photography and videography but I don’t really have talent in any of those hahah.

Nevertheless, I believe there’s art in everything and everyone has their unique way to change the world. Everyone has their own perspective worth sharing. Being human is the most beautiful thing to happen to us. We are the best! (I hope there’s no aliens or cats reading).
