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.

Freezing in the Philippines

I saw the Rock!!! Well, a poster cut out of him so... yes, technically speaking I did see him.
It was all fun and games at the movies tonight, that is until it wasn't.
It was a rough walk home from the movies, battling the chills that had 
taken over my body and left me with aching bones and stiffness.  
I was freezing in the Philippines.  Really?  Yes, really.
What the fudgesicle was wrong with me?!  
This feeling was definitely a first for me and I wasn't liking it one bit!!!
