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.

Planning and the Change of Plans

Spent my afternoon in the present of a dream materializing.
I was sight seeing the much anticipated new location for some's next dream.  No, not my dream, 
but trust me, it definitely got me thinking and got me missing the beginning days of Hulk's.
In the evening I attended at party hosted by Heineken.  
I had missed out on last night's party so I definitely wasn't going to miss tonight's.
It was hosted in this amazing old building where the ceiling opened up at various points 
to expose the above floors looking down.
Unfortunately we ended up having to leave the cool beats of that party but we managed to find another great party with equally cool beats, over at 20 20.
 I'm friends with one of the owners of this place so there's always someone I know here, her, 
but the place is always buzzing with interesting people.
The place got packed pretty quickly though so I found a cozy end of the bar to occupy and dance in.
