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.

On a Mission... Tuesday, May 9

With finally having made the big decision -- Canada or the Philippines -- I am able to continue working on my business proposal with a much more clearer focus and mission.  I spent about 5 hours at Starbucks today slaving away at it and then after my evening weight training session and run I continued working on it long into the late night.

I'm back to my regular routine but with a refocused direction so if I'm not at the boxing club boxing, lifting weights at the gym, swimming in the pool, or at the condo eating or sleeping, then I'll be at Starbucks slaving away on my revised business proposal.
