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.

Saturday Night at the Live Boxing Bouts

Shout out here to all the ladies who get up every day and get dolled up.  This is exhausting.  I personally rather wake up every day and do burpees till I puke than have to go through the routine of doing a face full of makeup, my hair and then having to slip into a polished outfit with heels.
No thank you!
At the live fights with my first boxing coach e.v.e.r -- Egerton Marcus, Olympian silver medalist.
He was one of many names at my ringside table tonight.
Among the list of fighters fighting tonight, there were three fighters fighting out of Durham Region.
I was proud to cheer a particular fighter, Abokan, from Whitby and see him win.
 Motor City in Oshawa also had a fighter fighting tonight.  Props to him for his win.
