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.

Working on "THE" Dream

 I've started packing up my stuff for storage, for when I move to the Philippines, and today I came across a poem a girl, an artist, sitting on a street corner once wrote for me this past summer.  
 She had asked me what I wanted the poem to be about and I said I was only going to give her the title of it -- "My Second Dream".  She then sat down, pondered for a bit, and then eagerly typed out on her typewriter anything and everything that came to her mind.  This was her poem.

Back when she wrote the poem even I didn't really know what my Second Dream was but now I do.  And now I see just how relevant and dead on she was with her words.
 ...and then I went and spend $40 on two hamburgers, ouch.
Not the wisest of decisions I've done but I decided to treat someone tonight, in between slaving away on my business proposal and, well, slaving away again on my business proposal.
