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 Amazingly Packed Day... Sunday, November 27

 
There's ALWAYS something special going on at my church but today we celebrated the church's 183th birthday so there was a special ceremony, equipped with choir performances, special dedications and even a dance performance!!!
 Since being in Canada for a bit over a year now, I've accumulated all these phones and even an iPad!  I should note that one phone is missing here -- an iPhone that I lost when I was racing off for my coaching course the other month.  I now have an iPhone 6 but still use my ghetto fabulous Blackberry for my Canadian number.
 Headed off to the Pacific Mall way north of the city.  Skittles took me and Balboa came for the shopping trip.  Tonight's shopping mission: covers for my new phone and new iPad.
Tonight I was treated to a special dinner out by someone incredibly special to me for something super special to me... a celebration meal for two. 
This is what happens when you sit down two athletes for a meal that would be the average person's feast.  We conquered and destroyed that meal, seriously!!!
