The Nana Diaries.


Assalam and hello,

Goes by the name of Nana here in this little virtual sanctuary of mine. I'm a 26 year old Malaysian girl that was born and bred in a city in Malaysia called Kuala Lumpur. On my 25th birthday, I've decided take a big step in my life and left Malaysia for an Arabic course in Sana'a, Yemen.

Writing has always been a passion of mine since I was in middle school. I wrote my own stories, my own little magazines and I actually shared them with my friends. Even though I am not good in writing, it always makes me happy until I attended high school.

In high school, my schedule was packed with classes, extracurricular activities and not forgotten, the boyfriend. I can't really find the time to to sit and write anymore. So, I decided to give myself a break from writing for a while. So, I went from writing to reading instead.

Reading has become something that I love to do when I'm free. I enjoy reading especially when it comes to something that is related to fashion. From fashion magazines to fashion-themed story books. I love them all. Without realizing, I started to fall in love with the world of fashion.

When I graduated from high school, everyone thought that I will be pursuing my study in fashion design or anything that is related to fashion.Or maybe writing. Little that they know, I ended up taking Accounting and Finance instead. Alhamdulillah, after struggling with numbers for 3 years, I graduated in 2012 with a Bsc (Hons.) in Accounting and Finance degree from Anglia Ruskin University.

Again, everyone thought that I will either be in an accounting career or continuing my study to a higher level. But I on the other hand, decided that this is the time for me to start focusing on something that I truly love, fashion. And a little of writing too I presume. So, in the mid of 2012, I've decided to start my own fashion business called Petitestaz.
