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.

Christmas and Counting Down

The Toronto Christmas Market is days away from opening 
and today I got to see them working away at it.
I didn't actually get to enjoy the Christmas Market last year, I caught the last bit of it which meant I only saw the Christmas tree lit up.  This year I'm going to explore it to the fullest and enjoy it to the max.
Worked on Flipside Fitness and my business proposal at a coffee shop in the Distillery District which meant I had the marry-go-round peeking in the window at me.
 Skittles picked me up tonight and drove me to Clancy's for coaching.
He and Balboa have definitely bonded, so much so that Balboa 
snuggled up on Skittle's lap for the ride.
 With fight night for Agency Wars Alumni Thunder exactly two weeks away, tonight we went in early to meet up with the head official for Boxing Ontario and go over the scoring and details of fight night.
A budding bromance on Team Blue.
We tease these two fighters all the time about their bromance so it was only too funny to have the official call them out and ask them to participate in a demonstration.
Going over some game plans with Coach Rico; setting up tonight's training.
