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.

Visiting Friends out in the Sticks

After my early morning meeting, I met up with one of my favourite people -- J-Doll.
We had agreed to meet at the St. Lawrence Market, which meant it was a sensory overload for my taste buds and trying to pick up what to eat for lunch was close to impossible.  
My mind said bread, bread, and more bread but my waistline said no, no, no.
Later in the evening I headed way out of town to my friend's cottage.
Arrived and one of my friends was cooking up quite the birthday feast!
There was food everywhere!!!
There were friends everywhere too.
And then someone started up a campfire... oh ya!!!
I wish I could have stayed for it but it was already after midnight and I had over an hour drive back into the city.  Next time though.  Next time I'll sleep over!!!
