Comfort is a key word for Zafirah — it’s how she describes her style, and says that’s all she thinks about if she’s going to be out for 9-10 hours a day. “I like loose, comfortable clothing. I don’t feel like myself when I try to dress up in skirts or dresses — I’d end up buying something to change into in the middle of the day,” she says. “So, to not dent my bank account any further, I don’t step out of my house if I’m not comfortable in what I’m wearing.” Perhaps it’s all about being able to be active and on-the-go for Zafirah  who loves running. “It’s the one thing that I really need in my routine. I wake up at around 4am every morning, go for a nice slow run, and get ready for work. Running definitely makes me feel grounded.” And while she laments that she used to be able to clock in more kilometres when she was still studying, she finds work to be satisfying, especially when everything falls into place. “I have this tiny bit of an obsessive-compulsive disorder, so I love it when everything is in order!” she says. As an accountant, Zafirah admits that work can get a bit repetitive at times, but she says when that happens, it’s time to make use of her annual leave. Work takes up most of her week — she says she isn’t much of a “hanging-out type of person”. “I only really venture out to meet up with my friends either on Friday night or Saturday. Sunday is strictly for hibernation.” In contrast to her early-morning runs, Zafirah seems content with living the slow life, and says she would like to be a tai-tai (a rich housewife) if she could. “I really think I would very much excel in napping and pigging out all day long.” On the side, Zafirah runs a blog that she started a while ago. “It’s mainly about my pet peeves, except that I wrote it from the perspective of an ant.” She believes that karma is always lurking, and the one thing she’d like to tell everyone would be: “Throw that litter in the bin, please!”
