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.

Facts and Figures... Friday, May 26

The fact of the matter was today was my last day at Elorde.  The figures that mattered today were my financials for my business plan.  Attacked, conquered and got through both... then got treated to a hair shave afterward, nice.

It was sad acknowledging that it was my last day of full time training at Elorde so it was a bit of a mental struggle to push myself at training.  Friends were there, that helped, but it also reminded me of all those I'll be leaving here behind.  The plan is to visit here every month, maybe once or twice for sparring.

Last Friday's business meeting regarding my financials got pushed to this Friday which was good because I hadn't yet finished some of my numbers I needed to prep for it.  The meeting started around 10:30pm, we took a break around midnight for a snack, and then we resumed.  Around 2am my main financials for the investors had been punched in.
