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 Continuation of the Week's Hectic Schedule... Monday, October 24

I woke up to the smell of flowers in my room – flowers that had been given to me yesterday. 

It was a brutally packed weekend and I was hoping to have today to recover, refresh and breath from it all but no such luck.  It was go, go, go from the moment I woke up.  At 4am I got a phone call from Korea and though I may have woken up to the smell of flowers, 4am is still 4am.  There was no disguising the brutalness of that.

Took the phone call and then went back to bed.

Woke up a few hours later, ready to start the day and attack my list of things to do.

I’m in the process of trying to plan a visit back to Korea, to get my stuff and do some legal stuff that needs to be done.  But in trying to plan this, I’m also trying to map out plans for the following…
  • Personal training licensing course
  • Remaining due courses for my boxing coach license
  • Getting my police record background check (for coaching license)
  • Setting up a possible next fight overseas
  • Figuring out where I’ll be living once the lease is up at my apartment
  • Planning a club Christmas party
  • Getting my G1 license
  • Setting up when to take the CPR/First Aid course
