By using services directly from individual translators or
interpreters, instead of using services through a language
or translation company, you would certainly cut substantial
expenses in your production. Besides, when emergency
occurs, you will be able to communicate with your service
provider, directly and immediately. So, you definitely save
a lot; time, bureaucracy, and most importantly, fund.


Ninie has been in the business for a long time. She loves
languages and marvels at their sounds and beauty of what
they can heal and convey to humankind. Ninie is also
supported by a group of fellow linguists, translators and
writers, who equally enjoy what they are doing. Not only
that, a substantial part of what she earns from her work is
spent for organizing, hosting and supporting literary
activities and interfaith/intercultural outreach, in her
humble efforts to help promote a respectful diversity,
pluralism and peaceful coexistence. When you hire Ninie,
you make that significant contribution! So, you count!!


Do you sometimes wish that you had an account of your
wedding ceremony when you celebrate your silver
anniversary? Or even golden or diamond anniversary?
Not just an album of fashionable photos, but really pages
of a written story of your wedding? Have you wished that
you had a 'story' or 'report' written when you had a party
celebrating your 40th or 50th birthday, to illustrate your
showing photographs to your grandchildren or
great-grandchildren at the age of 70 or 80? The narratives
that describe how beautiful and accomplished you were
then, how many friends and guests were coming to
congratulate you and share with you the occasion?  The
laughter released, the music played and the food served?
Or how solemn and overwhelming the atmosphere was
during your beloved mother's funeral service? That you
could not hold back your tears, realizing that you would miss
her and never see her again! Or, maybe you simply want a
poem or two, written about your funny toddlers learning
how to walk and talk, with his or her pink cheeks and blue
eyes, or pearly teeth and black curly hair?

If your answers to the above questions are 'yes,' then you
need a cultural writer/reporter who will write about and
celebrate your events for your family history and legacy.

As a keen multi-cultural observer and writer, Ninie Syarikin
writes in English fluently and fluidly. With her combined East
and West writing skills, she will produce a memorable
account that you can treat as an oral literature to pass on to
your descendants for many years and generations to come.
And they will surely treasure this memory and your legacy.

Don't let important events and significant phases of your life
just pass you by without any record. Photographs are NEVER
enough; they are only  fragments. A real story shall
complement and compliment them.

So, next time your engagement party takes place or your
extended families are planning a big family reunion, hire
Ninie to write a story of that big day. Or hire her to entertain
your young cousins, small nephews and nieces with poetry
reading and story-telling, while the adult family members are
convening for a more serious matter to discuss,

With a wealth of multi-cultural experiences and perceptions,
Ninie welcomes the opportunity to write for you. It's just a
call away or a click of an e-mail. It's as simple as that!


When you decide to hire Ninie as your writer, translator,
interpreter, language trainer or cultural consultant, out of
her character, integrity and professionalism, she completely
understands the importance and sensitivity of the
documents and tasks that you entrust to her. She
appreciates and values your confidence and trust. Ninie
gives only the best of her qualification, commitment and
performance. Therefore, rest assured that your documents
and assignments are in safe hands. Her philosophy is clear:
"Earning my living by earning your trust!"

This is a typical activity for Muslim children in Indonesia, learning how to recite  Al-Qur'an, the Islamic Holy Book
('an), since they are very young. In the morning, they would go to their school; in the
afternoon, they would learn the Qur'an in  Arabic, as well as other pertinent Islamic teachings, such as to not steal,
to not aggress, to not talk back to their parents, to obey their mother, to be kind, to be honest, etc.. Their guru or
udztaaz is a very knowledgeable, devoted and respected Muslim. I also started learning to read the Qur'an at a very
young age, like 6 years old, from my own father and mother, may God be pleased with them. Later, I often participated at
the annual Musabaqah Tilawatil Qur'an (the Qur'anic Recitation Competition) in my town, Mentok, up to the level of my
island, in the big cities of Pangkalpinang and Sungailiat. These were in the periods of my elementary and secondary
schools. Up to now, I still read the Qur'an and enjoy its beautiful content in Indonesian, Malay or English translations
( Now, my children have also been learning, and this has been quite a challenge.
Mohamed and Ibrahim at one period of time learned from their grandfather (may Allah be pleased with him). Islam, to its
believers, is a way of life.
