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.

One Great Idea Has Me Thinking More Ideas... Monday, October 17

Yesterday I lost my iPhone and today I got a new one, just like that.

Hello Bunz... thank you Bunz.

Seriously, if you don't know what Bunz is than I highly recommend you to check it out on Facebook.  Bunz is an old school bartering Facebook group where you can request things or offer things but things can't be sold or bought with money.  You have to barter.  Many people ask for subway tokens or gift certificates.  Today I offered my services -- personal training.

Bartered for a free phone -- her iPhone for four personal training sessions, and just like that I had a new phone.  Picked it up today before lunch, sweet, and the success of this deal has definitely put the wheels in my head in my motion.  I'm a starving athlete but I have needs just like the next person... but I've got a service that isn't cheap.  This could be my ticket to getting things, very cool.
