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.

One Family-Packed Super Sunday

See that pretty lady in the middle of the crowd of people, today she turned 101!!! 
We all traveled to her house today for her birthday party and what a party, wow.  
It was catered so in addition to the whack of people present there was also a ton of food.
Hey little piggy.  At first glance, I honestly checked to see if this little porky was missing his ear.
I didn't indulge in the food but I did jump all over the coffee!
The Doctor in the family, well one of two doctors, asked me if I wanted coffee and I was sold but when he pulled out a tin of Tim Horton's coffee, then I was all smiles.  A man that lives in the Philippines but likes Tim Horton's coffee?!  No wonder he's a doctor; he's a smart man.
In between the party and shopping, we stopped by an old church that was made in 1602.
This picture really doesn't do any real justice to just how massive and how gorgeous it was.
And speaking of church, at the shopping mall there was a church built right in the mall.
I didn't have the heart to tell them that I actually don't like shopping.
I only like shopping when it's for groceries or for training gear.
 I do love eating though so when I was asked if I wanted to eat, well, you didn't have to ask me twice.
