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.

Sweets, Sweeties, Sweat... and lots of Smiles

That gorgeous guy is my chiropractor.  I told him I only eat candy when I come for my appointments with him so he offered me the whole bag.  It was tempting but I only took 3.
After my appointment I headed downtown and this was the scene I encountered when I exited the subway.  I counted 10 police on bikes... wow.
Had to drop off some stuff for my friend so I swung by his office.
He knows my love of espresso is as strong as the caffeine itself so he spoiled me with two cups of espresso... nice!!!
My girl Madi works with him so me showing up was a surprise for her.
I cashed in on some hugs with her and she joined us for coffee... coffee and eggs actually.  Kind of a weird mix for them but definitely something that fits in with my clean eating lifestyle.
Gloves for him and coffee for her.... hugs, coffee and catching-up chats for me.
Then it was off to boxing where I then sweated like a beast training.
I'm sporting a beat red face from exhausting myself at boxing but I'm totally happy.
I love what I do and am doing what I love -- boxing in Canada.
