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.

The Road to my Heart... Wednesday, January 4

Food is the way to my heart, it's no secret.

I had a guy at the gym once approach me and most randomly give me a package of food because even he had tapped into the fact that food was the way to get to me.  

Tonight I was treated to a special home cooked meal but what made it so extra special was the fact that it was a home cooked Filipino meal and it was cooked at my home.  

Wow.... am feeling pretty spoiled right about now.

Food coma kicked in and then I realized I then had to get up and go train.

I think I ate my body weight in chicken and seasoned-to-perfection cauliflower. 

Bouncing around in the gym while I threw my combos and pounded away at that heavy bag during training was a bit rough and I felt a bit heavier and weighed down because of my meal.

...but did I care?!  At first yes but then no.

Food is fuel and that was some high end, top of the line fuel, let me tell you that!!!

If tonight's meal was any indication of what I'll be eating while in the Philippines... dang.  I just might never come back at this rate!
