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.

Early Work and Late Training

Spent a good chunk of my day doing computer work, like preparing stuff for Hulk's in Korea and responding to fan mail and messages from promoters.
In the late afternoon I headed over to Clancy's for some training and a chat with the manager regarding the upcoming fights and Japan.
In the late evening I then went to System for some weight training 
-- shoulders, triceps and chest...and of course chats and hugs from friends.
Returned home super late, around 10:30pm, and was greeted to this -- police tape around the fire exit at the other end of my hall and a notice in the elevator about some dude who attacked one of the residents.  Two reminders on just how ghetto my area is.
