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.

Pens, Gloves and Chopsticks

I officially returned to the Reference Library today and I apparently seemed
to be the only one looking over their shoulder and sitting somewhat uncomfortable.
Friday night Fight Club at Cabbagetown Boxing scored a sweet turnout tonight.
I'm always so impressed by the energy and numbers that come out.  If only I had had such support and encouragement in Korea.  They have no idea how awesome this is. 
Balboa showed up as Fight Club concluded.
He's a big fan of any female so he was loving the cool crowd that was out tonight.
After training, this happened -- hello carbs!
Hello get-in-my-belly delish sushi!!!
