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.

Highlights of My New Found Hood

Yup, definitely a good call on breakfast out.  I'm sure that pretty young waitress who stopped me in the street to tell me about this all-you-can-eat breakfast wasn't thinking I'd eat my weight in food here but voila, here I am, day two of doing exactly that.  As for the rest of the day, I eat like a typical starving athlete.
 Went exploring my "hood" today and this is the view from the 5th floor balcony.
It looks down on the outdoor mall.  In the middle there, that's all water.
 On the 5th floor there's a condo gym, holy ghetto, and an outdoor pool, holy awesome.
 There's also a garden too and it's the perfect get-away spot in the busyness of downtown here.
Checked out a bit of the night life here when I was treated out to dinner tonight.
