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 Makate, Philippines. Life, for me, is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This 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 and 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.

Straight Outta Cabbagetown

Had to head downtown to hand out more of my questionnaires for my 
Second Dream and was reminded why exactly I'm so happy I'm an entrepreneur. 
It excludes me from this daily rat race.
Met up with the Captain for an espresso... or two... and some oatmeal.
Yes, I'm off keto.  The Philippines with it's love for rice at pretty much every meal, just like Korea, is going to kill me so I may as well get used to carbs now.

Am officially moved out of Cabbagetown... I miss it already.
I don't really miss my apartment that is, not my unit, but I do miss the people in my
building and the awesomeness of the community.  I'll never forget when I lost Balboa.
Everyone there really tried to help me.
I had to make two trips to the storage unit, numerous trips out to the dump and 
in the hassle of it all I had no more room or effort for my ever-so-beloved BMX bike.
Decided to just leave it in Cabbagetown.  
I used to ride this back when I was in university, racing off to boxing with my gloves around my neck and Biggie Small blasting on my earphones.  Those were the days.

Why am I here??? said...

wow, I'm so surprised you gave up your bike. I remember you fondly talking about it in other posts. Hopefully the new owner will have some good memories with it.

Hey Jenn!!!!
Ya, I'm surprised too and I was super sad to see it leave me but I felt it was something I had to do. The money will help me in the Philippines and I figure I can buy another one later one, once I launch my next company.
