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.

One Rough Day... Thursday, May 4

I had a dream that I was dying and in my dream every time I closed my eyes I could see a bright light -- "the" bright light.  Upon waking up from that dream, I tried hard not to fall asleep again.  It was one of those dreams that felt too real to just be a dream.

There I was, laying in bed, suffering from chills, my bones aching, and having to wake up pretty much every few minutes to go to the bathroom.  Everything I had eaten for the past few days was no longer in my body but instead was traveling down the toilet pipe, going only God knows where. 

I spent the entire day in bed, sick.

I lived solely on Pocari Sweat today.  I couldn't stomach anything.
