Scared of my dreams


I am doubtful.
I am scared. Always unsure of my capabilities and talents. Often hates to lose, And that's where I draw my strength, I push myself to its limit, I prepare for all possible contingencies, Just so I can prove to myself, That my FEARs are baseless!

Most people perceive me as someone strong, confident and got all her stuff together.

Yet, people closest to me knows that beneath the confident facade is a person biting her nails to keep from falling apart.

Looking back to all exams I took, job interviews, thesis defenses, and all competitions I have done, one factor remains the same.

I am always scared.
To Ma'am Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, author of the book,
"This Child Will Be Great: Memoir of a Remarkable Life by Africa's First Woman President"

Thank you for this quote. I will always keep this in mind because,

I'M SO SCARED right now!

It might took me a long time to finally realize what I really want to do.

The skills and knowledge I gained throughout the years will not go to waste as they can be integrated to the new ones I am aiming to learn.

The nights will be long and the days will flash by in an instant.

But just like Dory said

review: Nutri10 Plus Syrup and Dayzinc One Month After


I received a sample of Nutri10Plus and Dayzinc a month ago courtesy of Wert Philippines through Mommy Bloggers Philippines.

Raeka got excited upon seeing the package, let us watch her unbox the bag and check its contents.

I enumerated the contents of Nutri10Plus and Dayzinc on my previous blog post.

Click here to revisit my initial review of the vitamins.

Raeka said both vitamins taste like sweet orange, in short she loves it.

Excited for her vitamins!

Even during summer vacation the princess just won't stop trying to learn. She found a picture encyclopedia and decided to browse through it.

It was a busy labor day weekend for this princess. We took her to her older brother's badminton class in the morning. In the afternoon, we took her to a playground where she tried all the slides and created a masterpiece using magnetic shapes.

Her appetite increased as well.

Before, we need to offer her food from time to time.

Now, she asks for food every two hours. She loves having small frequent meals now and we do not need to negotiate with her to finish her meal either.

Nutri10Plus and Dayzinc are Raeka approved!

Pilates: Open Leg Rocker (prep pose)


Pilates is one of the challenging exercises I decided to take on.

Why Pilates?

Every week, I think of one Pilates pose to practice and hopefully (gasp) achieve something close to perfection. Pardon me for being such a dreamer... hahaha...

This week I decided to practice the Open Leg Rocker (prep pose).

The Open Leg Rocker requires balance, control, finesse and lots of core strength to be executed properly. This rather challenging post will help increase muscle strength and endurance of the abdominal muscles, as well as concentration because you need to be really focused on engaging your core to prevent from falling on your back.

We often see videos of Pilates instructors doing this perfectly and sometimes mere beginners like us tend to get discouraged if we don't get the movement right away.

Well, here's your lucky day, I do not mind sharing my imperfect practice of the Open Leg Rocker, just try not to fall of your chair laughing please.

The muscles on my lower body are very tight and my core sometimes forgets to engage itself (lol). According to my friend I need to make a C curve on my lower back to properly hold this pose and putting the legs up is just secondary to keeping the core engaged.

It might take a long time but I'll never stop until I nail this one.

Shout out to a good friend of mine, Lanel Hosomi. Thank you for inspiring me to practice everyday.
