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 Makate, Philippines. Life, for me, is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This 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 and 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 Long Saturday Stroll Out of Town

This was brought to my attention the other day -- a mini mart here in Eastwood that 
sells ONLY Korean food items.  Today I checked it out.
I think there are more Korean foods that I crave compared to Canadian ones and today I picked 
up a few of my favourite Korean snackies, one of which is a great love of mine... BANANA MILK!!!
Unlike these local guys travelling with Mother Nature's natural air con (the wind),
I sat at the back of a packed shuttle bus as I headed out of town. 
It was an hour and a half commute to my destination so I 
munched on dried mangos and amused myself.
 And then I arrived.
 The point of the trip wasn't to go to the casino but we did take a stroll through it.
I'm an official member at two different Filipino places now -- Elorde Boxing Club and Resort World Manila Casino.  Great, like I'll ever use this card.  It gets me free shuttle bus service though.
