I have always loved Icelandic names and surnames. And to have it associated with a Filipina – and a Mutya ng Pilipinas candidate at that – tickles me. What makes it more special is that Asdis Lisa Karlsdottir is quite a heady mix of two races.
Just a little backgrounder:
“Ásdís Lísa was born in Iceland. Her father Karl is Icelandic and her mother Penny is from Cebu, Philippines. Except for an older brother and herself, Ásdís’s family has migrated to Norway.
Ásdís who is a model in Iceland, joined Mutya Ng Pilipinas Scandinavia after her mother encouraged her to do so. Mutya Ng Pilipinas Scandinavia is an affiliate of the Mutya Ng Pilipinas Organization in the Philippines and is responsible for sending a delegate each year to take part in the final competition.”
While Ásdís Lísa may not be as statuesque as we want her to be (standing only around 5’6″), she has the physical qualities that can make her stand-out quite well. Her eyes alone speak a lot and her body proportions are enticing.
Will she win Mutya ng Pilipinas 2013? Let’s watch out for that come July 26. 😉
