Batik&Bubbles is the brainchild of two friends - Yiga (Tibetan+Californian; right) and Farena (Malaysian; left) . 

Yiga Josayma, a native of California and the Himalayas,  worked in the field of Public Health on HIV/AIDS in the United States and the Asia Pacific for ten years, the past seven in Malaysia.  A self-professed neophile, she's a bit of a travel nut, hiking enthusiast, occasional yogini/pilate-r, and voracious silverfish in her consumption of books.  She's also a new mom to a little one who loves joining her on all sorts of adventures!

Farena Fatah Cooper is a London born Malaysian mother of two who is an avid foodie, traveler and shop-aholic.  Aside from freelancing in PR and marketing communications, she's a fan of reading grisly thrillers, dancing zumba and singing bad karaoke in her spare time.
