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.

BB -- Team Blue and Balboa

No coaching Team Blue anymore but I did head out to Clancy's Boxing to talk to the manager and say hi to Coach Rico and whomever was around.  I miss my Team Blue and endless hours coaching at the club.
Coaching Team Blue occupied a chunk of my schedule every week so I had arranged for my little Balboa to be looked after.  Skittles took him some days to work and one day he surprised his daughter by taking Balboa to meet her.  She absolutely loved him.
Skittles' daughter wasn't the only one who spent some quality time with him.
Took this screenshot of Balboa -- his five seconds of fame on Instagram story, nice.
