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.

Birthday Love and Love Letters

My dad was one super duper happy birthday boy, enjoying dinner out tonight.  
We arranged to have the waitresses sing Happy Birthday to him and they treated 
him to the biggest piece of strawberry pie that I've ever laid my eyes on... woozers!
I was guilty of indulging in a bit too... just a bit.
I had to help a certain someone finish their coconut cream pie.
Before I headed back to Toronto I stumbled across this in my room.
It's a little suitcase packed with letters, many of which are love letters from boys back in the day.
And so, for your amusement, here's one of them.
Such sweet things for the meathead-of-a-guy who wrote this to me, wow.
