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.

Warning, Hangry Girl on the Loose... Friday, February 10

I must apologize for anything I may say or do when I'm hangry... Wow.

I thought I was okay when noon had rolled around and I hadn't yet eaten.  I had gone to bed around 4:30am this morning and woke up around 10am so I had only been up for two hours.  I had gone to bed with a belly full of eggs and veggies, thanks to a late night Western omelette I was treated to, so I thought that would keep me for a bit.

Wrong.

Headed into a coffee shop in the Distillery District to do some work.  I had a bowl of chilli in a takeout container with some bread and then I ordered a coffee.  There I stood, super hungry but not sure if I could eat my outside food in the shop, looking for a seat.  The lack of seats and the noise of the place mixed with me being so dash hungry only amplified my growing impatience and eagerness to eat which consequently made me super figitty, wanting to rip open my brown bagged chilli and inhale it in one breath.  So I left.

I get hangry but today it was bad.  I would have sling-shot a spoonful of chilli if I thought it'd score me a seat and a piece of quietness.
