About me


Hello, my name is Zhaki Abdullah.

I’m a journalist living in Singapore. Since 2019 I have been with the digital team of CNA , where I cover local news, with a special focus on transportation issues, covering everything from aeroplanes to boats to cabs.

Prior to that I was with The Straits Times for four years, where I also covered transport and was a regular columnist for the paper, writing on parenting as well as millennial concerns.

I’ve also had prior experience writing corporate collateral such as brochures and annual reports, as well pieces on lifestyle and Islam in Singapore.

I have been married to the most beautiful woman in the world as of June 2011, and we have two children together.

I holds a bachelors degree in English Literature from Goldsmiths, University of London.
