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.

The Lights and Prettiness of Fort BGC

Headed out of town to the beautiful city of Fort BGC -- Bonifacio Global City, and was treated to dinner.
Dinner consisted of various equally delish dishes but the one that stood out, beyond the potato bombs that is, was the black rice.  It's actually dyed rice, using the ink from squid.  Very cool, ultra delish.
BGC is rather too posh and too pretty for me.  It reminds me of Yorkville in Toronto if Yorkville was spread out and consisted of blocks upon blocks of commercial buildings and sky high condos.
 Add the palm trees and, well, sorry Toronto but BGC beats your Yorkville!
But I still think my Eastwood beats BGC.  I like BGC but it always feels good to return to 
my home-away-from home, Eastwood.
