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.

A Superhero here in the Philippines

Had the most unexpected pleasure of watching this fierce female wow the crow in Manila.
The crowd loved her and I was so fascinated with seeing her in person.
She looked so different than I expected!!!  
 I'm not as fierce as Iggy.  I couldn't even handle the heels I wore.  In my defence, I was told that the place was also a fancy club and my shoes collection here is limited.  I rather be overdressed than underdressed.  No one but the gorgeous Filipino in front of me, the one guarding my heels, knew.
 Iggy's backup dancers were super toned but standing next to Izzy they looked like little girls.
 She looked like a walking, talking, singing super hero... seriously!!!
