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.

Work,Work, Work

The library was jam packed today, woozers.  Never seen it so busy.
As Murphy's Law would have it, the one thing I forgot today was the one thing I really needed -- my charger cable for my iPad keypad.  Typing use the screen keypad drives me bonkers so I ended up changing tasks before that frustrated me.  Sat down with a seriously solid book about female entrepreneurs  -- SheEOs.
Balboa was "treated" to a day at the office today and I say treated because there's a lot of ladies at this particular office that he adores.  After a half day at the office, he then joined me and off we went to the Philippine Consulate.  
He wasn't actually allowed to go in though.  They had a "No Pets" sign.
Balboa isn't my pet, I argue.  He just happens to be a little boy with two extra legs.  He's family and more deserving to be allowed in than some of these people's bratty little kids and their snotty noses and annoying crying. 
I attended a special movie showing tonight with Muff Society and Iron Lion -- a group of women all about giving voice to women here in Toronto.
The movie was called "Girl Fight" and I was accompanied by a particular gentleman who is actually very familiar with the leading lady star of the movie.  Hearing about the details of his "familiarity" with her was enough for me to ditch keto for the evening.
Ended the long day with some late night training, of course.
I was doing back extensions here when I looked up, noticed something super odd and decided I just had to capture the shot.  Four dudes training in a row, all wearing the same Adidas striped pants.

You're being kind of an ass saying that your dog is more worthy of being allowed somewhere than a human being.

Dear Mrs. Kim,
Hahaha, okay, maybe I'm an ass for saying that but it was a sarcastic comment. Those bratty little kids may be human but I swear some of them need a leash instead of my dog... and perhaps a muzzle.
