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.

 I once had a guy say "You exhaust me" and while I still think that's one of the meanest things anyone has ever said to me, I'm sure that if Balboa could speak English he'd say the same to me today.  Of course, he wouldn't say it with a cold heart or with mean intentions, but I know me being home all morning meant when I finally did leave the house he was relieved he could finally sleep.
Go to sleep my sleeping beauty.  I love you.
Finally got my house keys back and they came accompanied with some pretty flowers.
Checked out Jet Fuel today, a retro little coffee shop here in Cabbagetown.
Don't tell my keto friends... I cheated and had a cookie!!!
