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.

Looking Forward to Get Over the Past... Thursday, October 27

"I can't believe it's Thursday", I continually told myself over and over... and over.

The week had zoomed by me like a rocket ship blazing towards the moon. I hadn't even so much as had digested my breakfast when I then had to chew on the fact that the week was almost over. The work is never over though. The work is always there. It multiples, divides, and no sooner do you subtract one thing off your list-to-do but another zillion get added.

The work never stops.

The hustle is real.

Talking about real, real soon I'll be homeless.

The lease to my apartment is up come January so January may or may not be my last month in my cozy, penthouse apartment. I have a new roommate but it's questionable if they're going to take over the lease or not. Originally I was going to but then I was thrown some ideas and opportunities down south, a little out east, and then out super east -- Mexico, Winnipeg, and South Korea.

To tell you the truth, I'll leaning towards South Korea with a kind of "hitting-two-birds-with-one-stone" opportunity. My idea is to schedule a fight there, attend a training camp, do some much needed business with Snickers and Hulk's, and then come back to Canada. Come back ready to really plant my two feet in the soil here and invest myself with undivided attention.
