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.

Texts from an Ex

I had put on my Facebook as my updated status that I wouldn't be reachable via Facebook due to security reasons and that if people wanted to get a hold of me they could either text me or email me.  
Well, tonight I received a lot of cellphone messages from friends and family, all asking how I was and offering support and encouragement.  I decided to share a couple of messages I got from one close friend of mine, see the above pics.  I met him in my first year of university, in my hometown.  We dated briefly but he's always been a favourite of my parents and we're still pretty close.  It's pretty awesome that even after all these years he still has my back and looks out for me.  As for his nickname on my phone, oh relax.
