I have been subscribed to "Notes From The Universe" email list for about the past 10 years. You would be amazed by how they resonate with you at the right time. Recently an email landed in my inbox that reminded me of someone very dear to me... It was then apparent who I wanted to feature next for The Cantik Coalition.
"Feeling incomplete does not make you so. It's how legends are born, giants are made, and history is written. It's why you're here. To ever so briefly escape your true identity as you live with an unquenchable thirst that will lead you into adventures of grandeur and a realisation that love is all there is."
The first time I met Aisha was at the villa she was sharing with some mutual friends of ours in Seminyak, Bali (this was in 2013). I had just burned my leg on the exhaust of a motorbike and was taken to the villa to ice my leg (and sip straight vodka in a futile attempt to dull the pain).
Aisha was snuggled on the couch (probably watching a Disney film) dressed in a matching (and dare I say, daggy) flannelette pyjama set. I couldn't get over how real and infectiously kind this person was. We have been dear friends ever since.
Aisha has the looks so many girls aspire to have. Aisha is an Aussie with Kiwi & Malaysian roots giving her those beautiful dark features and enviable complexion. Aisha always wanted to be blonde and blue-eyed growing up.
Aisha opened up to us about insecurities as well as struggles past and present. She is a true angel amongst us.
