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.

Big, Big Booty... Saturday, April 1

Had a most unexpected turn of events today when I was interrupted after lunch to be told that I had just been put on the guest list for tonight's Iggy Azalea concert in Manila.

My friend Bubbles had the mad hook ups so I had her to thank.

Showed up in BGC for the concert.

The doors opened at 10pm, we expected Iggy around 12am but it wasn't until 1:30am she came on stage.  Don't even get me started about the overkill with the questionable pre-show entertainment -- a singer in a frumpy outfit with worse-than mom jeans jeans on and two DJs that were good until they weren't (they played on for way too long).  Not my show so not my decisions, not my problem.

Besides the flop with the pre-show, the actual show itself -- Iggy -- was amazing.

She was only on stage for an hour but it was a solid hour and she kept it going with little to no breaks. At one point I realized I had no idea what she was singing.  I was way too distracted by her body. I've seen Iggy in her music videos and in recorded interviews before but it was a whole other thing seeing her in person.  I thought she was gorgeous but with her standing in at 5ft10" bare foot but wearing heeled boots for the show and sporting her curves that kick way louder than the TV camera ever showed, she looked like a super hero to me.  She was this super hero of a woman, standing like an Amazon woman beside her overly toned backup dancers who because of the body type differences and whatnot only worked to further exaggerate Iggy's height and curves.

And here I thought I had a big booty.  Iggy's backside is seriously like a shelf and I love, love, LOVE how she worked her look.  She sported short booty shorts to exaggerate her backside, tall blue boots to exaggerate her strong, thick legs and then her high waisted shorts mixed with her sporty crop top really worked great to exaggerate her thin waist.  Iggy looked amazing!
