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.

An Overdose of Totally Unexpected Sweetness

A special letter arrived for me in the mail today.  It was sent to me all the way from Korea.
I pride myself in being a tough cookie but this totally melted my heart!!!
And if it wasn't sweet enough, getting that letter, I was also treated to a special dinner tonight.
I was treated to a home cooked meal.  I worked away at my business stuff and studying while he worked away in my kitchen.
Sorry Balboa but this meal isn't for you... nor was there any food left over for him even 
if I did want to give him some.  It was just so flat out delish!!!
 Dinner served... Filipino style chicken with seasoned cauliflower.
