Datin Azila Caramella has all the characteristic of a sultry goddess, with her smouldering eyes, sun-kissed skin, and hourglass figure. Some would describe her as the answer to Malaysia’s Jennifer Lopez, but after getting to know her, Datin Azila holds her own as a poised woman and dedicated mother. Although she’s a regular at glitzy events in town and globetrots on the regular, she is a firm believer of staying true to her identity and passions. Her role as director to several companies reinstates her status as a modern-day working mum.
For someone emanating a go-getting spirit, her days start and end on a tender note, preparing her children for school and ending with a deserving me-time skincare ritual. We speak to Datin Azila about her formula for motherhood, work, and a social life, and find out how the Lancôme Absolue Soft Cream buys her more time in nailing these daily goals.
How does motherhood define your identity?
I’m a mother of 3 children and from the first moment since becoming a mother, it caused a major shift to my identity. To illustrate, I’m addressed by the name ‘mummy’ more than my own name.
How would you describe yourself as a mother?
Parenting is amazing: I love being a Mother but It’s not always easy. I try to fulfil all the needs of my children, and I try to be patient.
Why is it important to lead your own life and be independent?
I cannot be completely absorbed by my home obligations and the needs of my children, so I believe in creating my own space to focus on work.
