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 Past Life I Lived

This use to be my life -- the life I let people see.
I was so careful.  I had the man, the pups, the dream job, the cars, and even 
a scooter though I didn't actually had a license.
Tomorrow is going to be an anticipated hard day for me so today I was distracted by it.  Everything and everyone seemed to get on my nerves but I found great humor in seeing this picture flash up on my Facebook page. 
Balboa saw this destruction of "us" even long before we started to break.
I had written Amy plus Snickers in the sand.  Balboa scratched out my name 
like a mad man and then peed on it.
