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 Wasn't the Only One Having a Rough Day

And here I thought I was having a rough day.  See those two workers up there working on the building?!  I watched as the one dude slaved away while the other threw rocks at him.  It was super amusing to watch but I'm sure the one guy was annoyed.
Looks like I'm not the only one who showed up early for boxing.
A new boxer has moved to Canada to train with us, that's him leaning against the door up ahead.  He's a super nice guy but he's kind of on Korean time too and by Korean time I mean always early.  
Coach Perez is always late.  He's on his own time... hahaha.
