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 Day, Two Boxing Clubs, Countless Goodbyes

Early morning sparring for me!!!
It was my last early morning sparring session with Queen Spar and today she had another fighter come join us in the ring, a fighter I hadn't yet sparred with or met.  
It made for a great sparring session because the two of them are 
such different opponents to fight with.
Then it was off to Whitby for a hair appointment at my girl Marney's hair shop.
I jumped on the GO Train to head out there and then was joined by my dad at the station.
With my hair all did, I then got back on the GO Train and headed back into the city.
I always love getting my hair done.  It's so crisp and fresh looking.

In the evening I dropped by Clancy's Boxing to say goodbye to everyone there.
Balboa scored some sweet treats and I took in a lot of hugs.
Said goodbye to Coach Rico and got in one last picture, this time with Balboa.
