Feminism

As I was flipping through my online magazine, an article caught my attention. 

Shailene Woodley who did an interview with Time magazine, apparently decided to join a list of female celebrities who misunderstood the meaning of feminism. 

Young, smart and super talented Hollywood star, Woodley totally had a misconception of the term itself. 

“Feminist” – Advocating social, political, legal and economic rights for women equal to those of men. 

She also shared her thoughts on sisterhood which is an important part of feminism. 

In my opinion, feminism is about changing the way the world perceives women. Equality is something we should strive for. It is not a concept but rather a necessity, not just for the advancement of women’s rights, but for the overall state of women’s health and well being.

What makes a good fitness instructor

Sports and fitness are not taboo to me. I started martial arts at a very early age and had many opportunities to represent my schools for various netball and athletics competition at national levels. Let’s also not forget my incredible weight loss journey where shredding off more than 35kg after pregnancy messed up my hormones to a whole new obese level. So, it is no wonder why I needed someone with great capacity to push me above and beyond my abilities. 

I did a lot of running, went for yoga and Zumba classes with different instructors but none of which could bring the mojo out of me. I still felt dissatisfied and was hungry for more. And then there was Piloxing. I fell in love with it immediately after my first class. This super high intensity workout which combines Dance, Pilates and my favorite, boxing, pumped me up and gave me the much-needed adrenaline to burn my calories to maintain my weight at a healthy level.

I stumbled upon Rasidah’s piloxing over the net and decided to try out her classes. I was sure that I could put up with whatever she had to offer. Master Trainer for Piloxing Singapore? She can’t be any different from the rest. Gosh! I was wrong! So wrong! 

Rasidah is PASSION, DETERMINATION and DEDICATION. She walks the walk and practices what she preaches. She roars in class, fun and entertaining altogether. She creates a sense of community and camaraderie within her class. 

Rasidah inspires me so much as she is probably one of the most ambitious women I have ever met. A loving wife and mother to 3 beautiful children, she is incredibly talented and her work ethics are insane. This lady is amazingly awesome. She supports her sisters and together we are unstoppable!

Nutella Marble Cake

I was getting really bored at home, fasting and basically hibernating all day which is not really productive for me at all so I figured that I should try something new. Let’s bake some awesome goodness!

Thank heaven for YouTube tutorials and Google Recipes. Being a baking idiot, I actually found that it was really easy.
