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.

From Sweats to Heels

Training at Hardknocks with Coach Perez.
Everyday we're hussling.
Better than yesterday.
After an afternoon of sweating my brains out, I got dolled up for a night out.
You can take the girl out but you can't take the fighter out of her.
I tried my best to be very lady-like though.  
Tonight was all about luxury and fine dining.
Enjoying a stunning night out surrounded by dinosaurs was awesome as was having the event in a museum.  I've never really noticed before just how beautiful the R.O.M. is.
My date and I took a sneaky run up the stairs to explore some parts of the museum.
I'll definitely have to revisit the R.O.M.; it's been way too long.
I felt like I was in the movie "A Night at the Museum", sneaking around the place.
