Well hello. My name is Syakira but most people call me Kiwa. I am a 20-something graphic designer and I live in a tropical country called Malaysia. For the curious, Malaysia is located in the Southeast Asia. I love designing, drawing, traveling, crafting, music, animals, cute things and football (I am a huge FC Barcelona fan). Right now I'm super obsessed with cows and watermelon goodies. I get excited easily and I am constantly in the lookout for things that inspire me, yays.

+ The Story Behind the Name Kiwa +
When I was small I can never pronounce my name correctly so I said my name as 'Syakiwa' instead of 'Syakira'. The name Kiwa has stuck with me ever since! Side story: I always thought how great would it be if I was born in New Zealand because then I could introduce myself as Kiwa the Kiwi. It's just has a funny ring to it hihi.

+ The Blog +
potatopanic! is where I post my thoughts, arts, DIYs, photo dumps, football and every little thing that crossed my mind. I created this blog sometime in 2010 but back then I was so new in the blogging world, my posts were all so cringe-worthy. The blog became half-dead as I was finishing my degree too. Now that it is over and done with, I plan on giving my blog a new life so stay tuned, guys!
I have 4 furkids whom I adore very dearly, but none of them seem to like me that much though *cries*. Maybe I should learn to annoy them a little less. From top left: Moji, Smokee, Bulat and Bobot. Past readers would notice that I love to take shots of my cats. I even have a dedicated cats tag! They feature on my Instagram regularly too.

+ Equipments +
My photos are taken and edited using:
My old Canon 450D with either the 18-55mm or 50mm f/1.8 lens
My iPhone 5s or iPhone 4s
Edited with Adobe Photoshop CS5 or VSCOcam on iPhone.

    1. Hello, Gianell!

      Thank you so much for visiting! My blog is pretty much dead now because I got caught up with work sobs. What a waste too since I spent quite a while creating this layout xD
