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.

I Miss My Babies

 This use to be how I started my day.  
I'd have to fight my way out from under the blankets and all the legs piled on me.
With 3 four-legged babies on my bed, you'd have no idea that bed was a queen size.
Pyen Chi often joined me in the club but she was picky with who she let warm up to her
so she kept to hanging out with me while I trained and lounging behind the juice bar. 
Pac was never allowed to be in the club when members were present but he 
scored a lot of play time with me both in the morning and after club hours.
I love this picture of him and me; it's my favourite.  
We were always both so happy together, so smiley.
Pac was my shadow, never letting me out of his sight.
Pacquiao, Pyen Chi and Balboa... my beautiful babies.  I love them so much.
