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.

Home Coffee and Home Girls

It's funny because just when I feel miles away from "home", I stop and ponder where I really have labeled "home".  I still very much feel like it's Korea but then there are times when I feel it's Canada. Today I was out of town and was shown this place -- Tim Horton's!!!  And you know I couldn't just simply walk on by.  I had to get a cup.  Got a double, double and yup, it tasted just like home... home 1 of 2.   
The Philippines is starting to feel like a home away from home, a third home, and the fact that I'm meeting some fabulous new friends here is most definitely aiding in creating this feeling.
Enjoyed the company of two super sweet ladies, a mother and daughter team.
