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.

Bouncing Back from a Sad Moment Morning

Decided to treat myself to some professional lines at Onyx.
I've been getting my friends to clean up my shaved head but today I decided I deserved a treat and so I headed over to see the pro stars.
And who should I run into while waiting for my name to be called by the barber, one of my sweet friends -- the prettiest of pretty guys I know, Palmer.  Unlike most of my friends, he's only seen me dressed up because whenever we run into each other it's at Everleigh.  Today was the first time he's seen me in sweats.
New scratches... this my friends is how the professionals do it!!!
Now to teach my buddies so they can do this next time.
 On Wednesday I posted a picture on our Team Blue secret Facebook page.  It was our team manager pointing at the time because it was coming up to training time and none of our fighters had arrived yet.  Today they showed up super early and thought it cute to post a similar pic.  I showed up five minutes later and was so super shocked at just how early they had come.
You know you love coffee when even your fighters bring you coffee-related gifts.
Tonight one of the girls brought me a body scrub she had made for me.  It's made out of coffee.  I jokingly asked her if I could eat it, she said no, but I can almost promise you I'll take a lick of it in the shower when I'm using it.
