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.

From the Shawa to the Big City

 Morning sparring with the great Coach Adrian at James Town Boxing over in Oshawa.
Jumped on the GO Train and headed out to Toronto.  It felt good to be back in the big city.
Showed up at The Captain's office for a little espresso break with him.  
He surprised me with peanut butter... he knows me well!
Trekked around downtown for a bit and snapped some pics.
Was treated out to a super delish dinner by The Captain.
We shared a salad and steak... and some warm carbs (the bread).
I should have put my hand up to the plate because even after splitting it, it was massive.
 He ordered two desserts but who were we kidding, I was going to dibble in both... and I did.
