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.

From Gym Nasty to Glam

Killed it at training today... absolutely killed it... and even managed to sneak a pic of 
my coach, Coach Garry, before leaving Elorde Boxing.
 Killed it with cleaning up too... absolutely killed it, or at least I think I did.
Slipped into a simple black summer dress for tonight's dinner party.
It was a lot more fancy-pants than I expected.
The home it was hosted at was absolutely gorgeous!!!
I felt so spoiled sitting there.  My knuckles may have been all scratched up and 
red from boxing but it was a good thing I wore a dress.
Indoor poolside eating, nice.
 And what's a dinner party without dessert... temptation galore!!!
