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.

6:45pm                 Head to Clancy’s Boxing for Team Blue Training
My evening plans for after coaching Team Blue had flopped so when I arrived home at 9pm I had absolutely nothing to do.  It was so weird.  “Just relax” my friend texted me, but do I know how to relax?!  I’m always working.  Even my new roommate, who has only been living with me for a week now, commented about me being home so early.  They usually go to bed before I come home from my day of coaching and training.  Tonight my plans after coaching at Clancy’s had been cancelled.  I had anticipated coming home close or after midnight but was instead home by 9pm.  I’m always on the go, or so my friends here in Canada always claim me to be, but in Korea this kind of go-go-go way of life is pretty much the norm. 
So there I was, 9pm and the rest of the evening free.  How did I “relax” you ask, I relaxed by typing up my observation notes I made during coaching Team Blue tonight.  I type up some notes, brainstormed some ideas for future training, and then finished worked on my Flipside Fitness bootcamp stuff.
