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.

One Busy Day for Me in the City

 It was a cold, crisp day in the TDot and it was a super busy one for me too.
 But thanks to the super smiley hipster dudes at Pilot Coffee, I scored a super delish caffiene fix to jump start my day.  It was accompanied with a silly joke and a heart on top, nice.
 It's kind of hard living without Balboa, I will admit it, and it's especially hard when I see everyone else with their four-legged friends running around Toronto.  Today Balboa went to work so I scored a cute picture of him "working" hard.
I saw him briefly today.  In between doing my laundry and meeting with a Kijiji buyer, I made a quick snack and enjoyed it with him beside me.

My snack, I call it the Pick-Me-Up-Protein-Quickie.  

Peanut butter always makes me happy so I figured after a super busy day, a day that was no where close to ending when I stopped for this snack, I'd mix peanut butter with some "stuff" for a quick snack.  In a blender, I mixed natural peanut butter, natural almond butter with banana flavoured protein powder.  I then spread it on a piece of whole wheat Ezekiel and topped it off with a light drizzle of honey... holy delish!!!
