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.

Enjoying Some Finer Things in Life

 On days when I miss Toronto, it's nice to know that a drive away is a Tim Hortons.
However, coming here also means waiting 15-20 minutes for a simple coffee.
This week's cheat meal consisted of me wolfing down half of a small pizza.
Okay, so maybe more than half but in all fairness it was a small pizza.  Cost only $10.
 And remember that piece of cake that taunted me at Starbucks the other day?!
Well, a piece of it miraculously landed on my work station tonight at Starbucks.  I didn't buy it but I did share it, well kind of.
