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 Change in Scenery and Unexpected Break

Sported my skull kettlebell tank top for work -- keeping hard training fun for the ladies.
Always working.  Am trying to set up getting my personal training license.  It's yet another thing for me to take on and conquer but it's something I really need and want.  The hustle is real.
 A change in business plans meant a chance to get a change in scenery.
When my afternoon business meeting turned into an evening one, I had to cancel heading out to Clancy's tonight (wouldn't be able to make it on time for 8:30pm coaching) and then was treated out later in the evening.
The change of scenery, the beautiful lobby bar of the Shangri-La Hotel.


The place is absolutely gorgeous but the live music, oversized Japanese art, and cozy couches all add up to make a place that just oozes with romance.

A Friday night not spent in training gear and/or on the subway traveling home?!
Ya, this was definitely a first.
