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.

House Hunting... Monday, May 22

House hunting started off with a weak start today -- many of the condos aren't pet-friendly and the only one we planned to visit canceled five minutes before our appointment which meant we may have just taken an hour Uber for nothing.

Met with the broker, chatted about the situation and then decided to just go walking into various condos in the area.  The Hamilton, a condo that looked amazing on it's website proved to be the biggest disappointment, more of a disappointment than the five minute warning appointment cancelation.

And then we walked into The Grand.

Love, love, LOOOOOVE the pool area!  It has a lane pool which I could totally see myself doing some morning lap training in, a party room with a dart board, pool table and ping pong table, but what really proved to be great was the condo's fitness gym.  It's a large gym with big windows and a view of the pool.  I love it.

Unfortunately we weren't able to see any of the individual condo units, after all we didn't have an appointment and instead had just walked in off the street, but this week the broker will set some condo units for us to check out.
