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.

A Day of Pure Sweetness... well, some Refined Sweetness too)

After months of my friend telling me I just "had to come" see his mens choir perform and hearing his sing away as he rocks it out during cardio, today I showed up to see him perform.  It was absolutely beautiful and so incredibly touching.
Rev Tiger and I met at System and he's one of the most beautiful people I know.
Church out with my Papa Bere is always followed by lunch out at Swiss Chalet.  It's like an age-old tradition that is as predictable as it is comforting and sweet.
And speaking of sweet... tonight I cheated on my clean eating.
Toffee apple cheesecake.  Say that 3 times and then tell me your mouth isn't watering!
