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.

Up in the Village

Leave it to me to totally j-walk across the street so that I can catch a picture of the police on horses.  "But they're so beautiful, I had to snap a pic" would have been my lame excuse if I had been stopped for it.
But I didn't get caught, so I snapped another picture.
I've been super busy with training but today I managed to make time to grab a coffee with my girl, Ginger Spice.  We caught up on girl talk before I then headed to training.
I let my friends hug me, some of them I let even punch me in the bum or play wrestle with me, well, tonight I added shave my hair to the list of things I now like friends do.
