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 Piece of "Home" at my Home Here

One of my closest friends in Canada shares the name of this new juice I've been seeing around the Philippines so yesterday I bought a bottle of it.  I sent him this picture and joked to him saying that whenever I missed him I could just drink this.  The two share the same sugar content.
I miss Toronto and I miss my friends but what I miss more is knowing where I belong.  I've been spending the past two months debating this and, now that I'm sick, I've had ample time to really ponder this.
