“Ayesha? (Arabic form means she who lives referring to the sea)” Zainal said referring to the Bugis pirate chieftain Mat Awi’s favourite daughter who also sails these waters. Ayesha was in her time, a formidable fighting woman, a pirate of legendary status who sailed with a female only crew on board her ship. She was blessed with a drop-dead gorgeous beautiful body that exacerbated a femme fatale about her presence wherever she went. She also possessed an uncanny business sense mingled with a feminine eccentricity. Her all female crew are loyal to her and as lethal. Should you survive an encounter with this woman of the sea, she will indelibly leave a mark on your memory of her. This was one female pirate you simply did not mess with. Not if you wish to survive in her territorial waters.
