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.

Birthday Blessings for a Beautiful BDay Boy

Today marked my beautiful four-legged boy's birthday.
Mr. Balboa Button is five years old now and I love him so much more now than ever before.
But before I could really celebrate his birthday I had business to tend to.
Checked out a hip doggie shop down in the Distillery District where Balboa has been personally escorted there before for his nails.  Must be nice, right, being getting your nails professionally cut.  Even I don't get pampered like that.  Only once have I had a pedicure yet my little boy has gone twice here.  
It is a dog's life!
In the evening Balboa opened his gifts and had a lot of fun.
One of his gifts was a big box of peanut butter cookies... are they tasty for us two-legged friends?!
Ohhhhhhh.... I totally know this is two-legged friend friendly!
It's a tradition for my four legged friends to get a birthday pizza and this birthday marked Balboa's first birthday pizza in Canada.  No sweet potato options in this country but he still loved it!
