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.

Moving Day... Tuesday, January 31

Somehow me moving out today also meant me selling off all my first roommate's furniture and cleaning up after both my first and most recent, the second.


[Enter me not impressed right here.]

Consequently, I had to cancel my personal training sessions, cancel my training, and cancel tomorrow's sparring session.

[Enter me rolling my eyes here.]

Jumped on Kijji and Bunz, posted numerous pictures about the furniture I unexpectantly suddenly had to get rid of -- 3 tables, 3 lamps, 1 bed, 1 mirror, 1 bench, and my dresser, and then bagged a whack of leftover things left by the others.  It took two trips to the storage unit out west of the city to pack away the remaining stuff that I hadn't yet packed.

I was told I had to be out of my apartment by midnight.  I left at 11:57pm.

I no longer live in Cabbagetown.  I'm living in the Distillery District for the next month until I repack my bags and head to the Philippines.  Right now I'm staying at the house of some friends, a couple, I met in university.  I've nicknamed them MaG.
