My name is Ellen. I was born, raised, and currently still live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I have a degree in Comparative Literature. This is my personal, unaffiliated blog where I mostly write about music, art, and my life.
My blog title is just another way of phonetically spelling “kafkaesque”. Franz Kafka is a Czech author, he is most famous for having written The Metamorphosis, a short story where a man wakes up transformed into an insect. The spelling of “qaphqa” I got from a Jorge Luis Borges story called The Lottery of Babylon.
When reading older posts in this blog, please take into consideration that my thoughts, opinions, and acquired knowledge may have changed since the time I wrote a certain piece. I don’t regularly read back through my archives to cull old posts, but I also wouldn’t want to be strictly associated with something I may have written months or even years ago. People change ! Have fun.
