As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman. I left Korea with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side.

Life is an adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

A Beautiful Sunday Stroll at the Lake

Had a visit from my dad today -- my Papa Bere.
My dad is a pretty awesome man and that's not me being biased.  My friends will back me up here, no problem.  And what do you do when a pretty awesome person visits you, you take them to a pretty awesome place -- the lake.
We definitely weren't the only ones down by the lake today.
With the weather being so incredibly beautiful the lake shore path was packed
with people all out enjoying the weather, the lake and each other.
Not too sure on the safety of such a kid-packed park but ok.
Lots of people lounging lakeside.
They do this in Korea actually, at Seoul's N Tower.  Couples put locks on the wired fence.  I think this is a new thing here in Canada but seeing it definitely made me think of Korea.  I once put a lock on N Tower, with Snickers..... hmmm, no comment there.
Ah the lake, one of my most favourite of favourite places to be!!!
