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.

It is official, I laid to rest my Blackberry Curve and all it's fabulous ghettoness to rest.  I am now the barrier of only ONE cellphone; no more double-fisting.  No more one cellphone for Korea and one for Canada.  Now I just use one -- my iphone 6.  I'm not a fan of the iPhone or anything Apple for that matter.  I don't even like apples anymore actually.  But the iPhone was a generous gift and if it can do all I need a phone to do as oppose to juggling the two, then, well it was a practical switch over.  Having said that though, not all my contacts from my Blackberry got properly saved and switched over to my iPhone so for the next little while I will have to depend on my Blackberry.  

Goodbye Blackberry Curve.  I loved you so much.  This isn't a goodbye, it's a see-you-later.  I will promise to pull you out every one in awhile, charge you up, and slip you into my purse for a night out on the town.  You always get rave reviews.  Old school is the good school.  Thanks for being one tough cookie of a phone.  I've dropped you numerous times but you're indestructible, unlike the new school cells.
