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.

A Party and Some Ink

It was System Fitness' 14th year anniversary so the Polish Princess and I showed up.
I love, love, LOOOOOVE System Fitness.  This is where she and I first met actually.
 I had hoped to be able to stay longer but I had an appointment to race off to.
 ...but first some food, yes please!!!
 My appointment was for another tattoo and it was at FY Ink downtown. 
My tattoo was specially designed by not only my tattoo artist Jen but also by Skittles.
Considering this wasn't my first tattoo I was prepared for the pain but it wasn't bad at all.
Jen did an amazing job and I absolutely love, love, LOVE it!!!
I wasn't the only one getting inked tonight.  I was joined by another.  He got a different line from the same song printed on his forearm so if you see someone in Toronto walking around with a line from John Legend's "All of Me", well, he's someone special to me.
