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.

I Always Have Korea on My Brain

I am forever grateful to be here in Canada but you better believe at least once a day I have those "I wonder if..." moments where I wonder how things would be if I stayed in Korea and stayed at my club.
It's not designed or being ran as I would have had it but I've learned to bite my tongue.
There's so much that could be done with it.... it could be so much more than it already is.
But it's not my place to say anything.  I just have to trust that Snickers knows what he's doing.  God knows I sometimes wonder what the hell I'm doing here in Canada especially when I think of all that I left in Korea.  People have NO idea!!!

Now remember WHY you left. And how happy and free you felt coming back to Canada. It's understandable having those feelings, for what you've lost, the gym you owned. But you are gaining back much more: yourself, your safety and freedom from a toxic relationship. Now go enjoy your day!! :-)
