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.

Bouncing Business Ideas on the Bouncy Bus... Monday, May 2

While on the bus ride home from boxing today I met this super sweet girl who bounced ideas back and forth regarding my Second Dream.  It was a most random conversation with an equally most random person but it was so good. 

It all was sparked when I left the club, crossed the street and tried to catch the bus that was about to zip by my stop.  The bus driver flew right by me as I stood in the middle of the street waving my Han for him to stop.  He never stopped, instead he zoomed by inches from my face so right when the back end of the bus drove by I reached out and slapped it as hard as I could.  It made a loud sound.  I then crossed the street and there was a girl.  She had also tried to catch the same bus and she had heard me hit it.

Conversation sparked.

I'm still juggling a lot of options and opportunities for me to pursue but I don't know which one I am really passionate about.  I don't want to pick one if I'm not totally all about it though and the fact that I have to think about it means I am either not ready or not crazy about it. 

If you have to ask, the question is no -- a truth I lean on and that's totally applicable here.

With this being the first real full summer of me being here n in Canada, I am feeling an increased pressure to figure out and launch my Second Dream.  Right now any solid ideas or business research regarding it has taken a back burner position as my personal boxing career has been put into the spotlight.
