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.

The Rugby Players Hang up Their Cleats for Boxing Gloves

The Rugby Rumble and I was there!!!
...I clearly wasn't the only one there either.  The place was packed!!!
VIP tickets meant I didn't have to stand like a sardine in the crowd though.
They had a sectioned off VIP area with a private bathroom, a free bar and even a caterer.
Best fight of the night for me, the twin sisters going at it.
The other fight of interest for me involved a fighter my buddy 
whom I had come there with had trained.
His whole immediate family had come out for his fight and I thought that was awesome.  I chatted a lot with them all, especially his mom.  She's the gorgeous blonde, two heads in from the right corner.  What an amazingly supportive woman!
After the fights, my crew and I headed out to Revival for some old school beats and karaoke that wasn't really karaoke but soon-to-be paid performers!!!
And what's a night out without meeting some new people.  
I made some new gal pals in the girls' bathroom, apparently.
