Describe your dream home
Aishah: A big colonial-style 1-storey bungalow on a big plot of land in Malaysia. I would love to live in the outskirts of the city, where there are still a lot of trees around. It’s all white on the outside and lots of big windows and French doors. My living room will have big French doors leading to my patio and a lush garden full of big trees and local plants. On weekends, my family would do everything outside — dine, play in the tree house and just spend time with each other. The house will have solar panels on the roof, so we are completely self-sufficient when it comes to energy, have a rainwater harvesting system and all the wood used in the house is from a sustainable source. In other words, it will be as environmentally friendly as can be.

Poo: It will be in Taman Tun Dr Ismail or Damansara Heights. A bungalow with at least seven bedrooms, a garden, a spacious porch, an AV room, a swimming pool, gym room and a very spacious master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe; bathroom with Jacuzzi; a fully equipped kitchen and high ceilings.

The master bedroom with its curved window finishing offers a superb panaromic view. From left: Aishah Sinclair, Chermaine Poo and Sharifah Amani indulging in some girl talk on all things fashionable. (Sinclair, Poo and Amani all in Banana Republic dresses)Amani: I want a mansion in India. One of those in the movie Devdas or Hum Dilde Chuke Sanam. Lots of courtyards, different levels, very open and breezy facing the beach; very romantic.

What makes a home?
Aishah: A place where you are the most comfortable. Where you go back to at the end of the day and relax.

Poo: A home has love, understanding and harmony; tidiness and home-cooked food. Home is a place where you feel secure and have a good rest.

Amani: Family. A house without a family remains just a house. With family it is home. A cliché but true.

Your favourite part of the home and why
Aishah: Bedroom! And living room. I love my bedroom because of my king-sized bed! My husband and I have been looking for the ultimate bed. We like 5-star hotel beds because they’re always so fluffy and soft. Perfect pillows, perfect duvet. We tried to recreate that as much as possible. And the living room because just outside my balcony is an empty plot of land full of trees. In the afternoon, if you just sit on the sofa and listen, you can hear the breeze blowing through the leaves of the trees. Very calming.

Poo: The bedroom, kitchen and AV room. Bedroom for good rest; kitchen because I love to cook and eat; and the AV room as I love watching love movies and TV series.

Amani: My bedroom! This is my sanctuary. My secret space. In my room, I can do whatever I want. I can disappear. I have everything I want there. I rarely come downstairs.
