British Columbia (B.C.), Canada is definitely my next target after enjoying the tourist spots of Ontario, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. I was planning to travel last June 2012 but for some reason, it got pushed back from my bucket list.

Later on, my cousin, Jaime (a.k.a. Chancee), informed me that he’s flying to Winnipeg for a study tour and asked me if it’s possible for us to meet up. We both agreed to see each other in Vancouver and stay in one of our relatives place whom I haven’t met.

I was so pumped! I’ll be hitting four birds with one stone! Err… it would also be cute to say, with one airfare. Well, it’s surely worth it. I’ll be able to:
*** Chat with my cousin
*** Meet & bond with my new-found relatives
*** Take a well-deserved holiday
*** “Get to know” British Columbia

Indeed, God is good. Through His “magical hands”, the wonderful trip took place and it certainly paved the way to connect some of the missing links of my life.

So, what happened during the trip? Hmmm… I’ll let you know in a bit. :p

Intriguing eh? :p
I’ve been searching for a dance class early last year but I can’t seem to find one that’s near downtown. Before Christmas 2011, I found via Google a very, very interesting dance class called “The Big Fat Ass Dance Class”.

Usually, I’m very picky and I think a zillion times before buying or doing something. However, in this case, the title alone was enough to convince me to sign up for the class. Ha! I love it because it’s very catchy and out of this world. FYI, the class is not exclusive for women who have big fat ass. It’s open for all ladies.

Anyway, out of the ten (10) sessions, roughly, I attended six (6). The winter season took a toll on me so I was not able to complete the 10 classes. Sigh. Nonetheless, I’m grateful because I was able to loosen up a bit and meet such a vivacious group.

Moreover, what can I say about the Big Fat Ass Dance Class?

  • I can be myself
  • I can go silly without being judged
  • A very good way to de-stress
  • It’s a form of exercise while having fun
  • It allows me to become a leader and a follower
  • Most of all, no crazy rules 😀

Aileen Hayden is an excellent trainer and a good motivator. She reminds me of my Dutch “sister”, Judith Kroon. They have similar infectious sunny disposition which radiates positive energy waves to the people around them.   By the way, Aileen also teaches Yoga. Not sure if she’s still conducting classes because she just moved to another location. Her email address is info@

On a lighter note, congratulations on your engagement Aileen!  Best wishes! 🙂
Now, what should I do next? Zumba maybe?
