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.

My Loves in Korea

It's been well over a year and a half since I left Hulk's in Korea but I'm still managing the 
Hulk's Facebook group page and responding to all the business emails.  
I miss Hulk.  I miss my Hulkies and my Mini Hulkies.
The best decision when I left was fighting to get Balboa to come join me in Canada but there's
not a day that goes by that I don't think of Pacquiao and Pyen Chi.
I don't regret leaving and I think they are better off there than in Canada because I can't give 
them the attention or space they both need to be comfortable in but I miss them so much.

They're not better off if they're living on a rooftop alone without regular human interaction. Unless you exaggerated when you said that in a different post. You could have try to find them a new home.

Hi Anonymous,
Yes, they're living on the rooftop (the rooftop of my gym) but they DO have human interaction. They are fed and tended to but most definitely not like when they lived in the actual club with me! As for your "you could have try to find them a home" comment, when I was there I didn't honestly know I was leaving when I did. It was a spur of the moment thing, that's why I wasn't able to deal with Balboa until much after me returning to Canada. Nothing in my move was planned!
