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.

My Kind of Guy and My Kind of Club

One of the best things I've done since restarting my life in Canada was fighting to get this beautiful four-legged boy to Canada -- Balboa Button.  Say what you want, he's just a dog, but he's more than just a dog to me.  He's a piece of Korea to me and at times I feel like he's the only one who can relate to what I've been through in Korea and what I'm experiencing here now in Canada.  He knows what went down in Korea because he was physically there and now we're both new comers to this foreign land.
Balboa is very familiar with Hulk's, he lived there with me, and now he's getting more familiar with Clancy's.  With training Team Blue, I'm here four days a week here and have been for the past 7+ weeks.
