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 Superheroes Come Out to Play

I'm Batman... bwhahahaha.  Oh gosh.  I rather be Catwoman and not because she's a chic but because Batman is a bat -- a scrawny animal that hangs upside down and only comes out at night. 
 Looks like there's another superhero amongst us... Spiderman is swimming.
Turns out Spiderman is a skinny little Filipino kid with legs abnormally long and an adorable smile.
 Here's my little superhero though, Mr. Balboa Button.  His super power ranges from being able to jump about a zillion times his height and knowing exactly when it's 8am, time to wake up, to making the grumpiest of grumpy people smile with his contagious awesomeness.
