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.

Decorating My Skin Some More... Thursday, November 17

It's been decided; I'm getting inked... again.  Going in to get more ink down with this particular tattoo being extra special to me because someone else, someone super special to me, is joining in on the ink and getting one done with me.

I'm getting a line from "All of Me", a song by John Legend.

I know the line and it's got it's overdose of meaning to me but now to figure out how exactly I want it punctuated. 

All your perfect imperfections.
All your perfect imperfections...
all your perfect imperfections
...all your perfect imperfections.
...all your perfect imperfections...

As for where, I'm getting it on the forearm on my left arm.  On the one side I have my personal life motto that I had used for Hulk's -- better than yesterday -- and then on the other side I'm going to write the one line from John Legend's song.  Plan is to get it done before Christmas but it's not definite yet.
