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.

Fighting the Champ and the Heat

Trained with the champ today, Rocky.
I read some where a great quote -- Experience is a great lesson, even if pain is the teacher.
Today I definitely left the ring being the poster child for that quote but what a great sparring session!
 I left the club with a my brain feeling a bit wobbly in my head and then had the "fun" of trying to flag down a taxi.  I didn't have the patience to do that so I started to walk.
My walk took me through a rough part of the city that had a million dollar view, wow.
 Most randomly discovered a line of tricycles so I asked them to drive me to Eastwood.
They're not actually allowed to drive into Eastwood so I got him to drop me off at the corner of it.
Traffic in the Philippines.  It doesn't matter what time of day it is, it's always there -- traffic.
