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.

Fighting the Forces of Cuteness

The struggle IS real.
Balboa is most definitely the bestest of best little snuggle buddies to have around but it only makes it impossible to wake up in the morning and leave him home alone.
Even when I'm not with him though I'm thinking about him.  
Today I meet up with the Captain at his office and he passed on a special gift
for Balboa as this Wednesday marks Balboa's 5th birthday! 
Balboa's first birthday in Canada.  I wonder if he'll get the royal pizza birthday treatment like he did in Korea.  Who's going to buy him a pizza?!  It's tradition.
