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.

An Oversized Pepper and Some Loud Pants

 
 I'm the girl that pulls out a pepper and eats it, true.
Pull out a chocolate bar and no one bats an eyelash.
Pull out a pepper and everyone giggles and wants to snap your pic.
 And yes, I'm the girl who takes the train home late at night, covered in sweat.
It's called earning my shower... being gym nasty happy... also known as training hard.
On days when I need a little extra boost with my training, I wear my zebra pants.
They make me feel like I'm really a beast in training... hahaha.

Now sitting on a late night train after training and seeing a bag with Seoul written on it, not sure exactly on what that did to my post training, exercise high, but it left me feeling a bit on the silly side.  Signs of Korea here in Toronto hit me differently every time.
