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.

An Old Picture but a New One for Me

Goggled myself today and came across some pictures of myself from the article 10Magazine did on me.  They did a feature on us so they took a whack of photos of us for the magazine's cover and for the two page spread on us.  

I don't recall ever seeing this picture.

The look on Snickers' face vs mine says it all.  We were in the process of renovating for the opening of Hulk's Boxing.  It was absolutely exhausting and you can see that in his face but I was on cloud nine, so happy and so pumped about my dream coming true.
