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.

F-I-N-A-L-L-Y got My Hair Did

After almost four months of being delinquent with getting my hair done, I finally was able to
make the trek out to Whitby to get my hair cut and dyed.
 Looking fresh and feeling fabulous, I then made the trek back to Toronto.

 Now to maintain this and not let another four months go by before I get it done again!!!
I posted this picture on Instagram and Facebook after getting into a chat with some dude waiting at the Go Train station for the same train I was taking.  He had asked me what my job was.  I told him I was a pro boxer and he responded by saying I was "too pretty to be a boxer".  That's my pet peeve, people who make it sound as if being ugly is a prerequisite for being a fighter.  I've yet to meet a physically ugly fighter and, come to think of it, my top four picks for the prettiest women here in Canada are ALL fighters.
