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 Makate, Philippines. Life, for me, is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This 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 and 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.

Executive Decisions... Monday, March 20

The bank doesn't seem to agree with my bank card so I had to make some executive decisions based on what limited cash I had on hand.

I had just come from boxing so I was already slipping into hangry mode.

Soap or coffee... Picked the cheapest soap so I could get both.
But then I saw peanut butter.
[enter a 10 minute inner debate between the sweaty, boxed-till-exhaustion me]
Peanut butter or soap and coffee.... soap and coffee.

I needed a shower.  I had just returned from boxing so that need for soap was big.

My wifi was MIA today, it tends to do this a lot because going to Global for wifi was the BEST DECISION E.V.E.R... [note that's me being totally sarcastic here.  If Global was a person I'd punch them in the crotch, seriously!]. So with my wifi MIA, thanks Global, I headed out to Starbucks to milk their wifi.  One problem though, I only had 20Php on me and a coffee there is at least 120Php.  Scanned the condo, checked under all the couch cushions and then checked all pants pockets.  Resorted to robbing the coin dish in the bedroom.  

Bought an Americano, 120Php, with only 5Php coins.  Nice.
