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.

Korea on the Brain but My Eyes Full of Canadian Greatness

Headed down to the Distillery District for a mid morning coffee and caught glimpse of them setting up what will soon be the most beautiful Christmas tree in the entire city of Toronto.
Walking back to my area, I then caught glimpse of this -- a crew of workers setting up almost 12,000 Canadian flags.  It's for Remembrance Day, in honor of all the fallen soldiers.
 It was absolutely beautiful to see but the symbolic meaning behind is bitter sweet.  None the less, I reached out to the setup crew working on it and thanked them for the beautiful sight.
