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.

Struggle and Peer Pressure

The struggle is real and peer pressure is still alive and thriving!
I spent a solid 6hrs occupying the corner seat at a table at Starbucks, working on my business proposal, and when I returned from the bathroom this was on my stuff -- a slice of a cinnamon bun one of the barristers here had left for me.  It was a sweet surprise... literally. 
Heyyyyyy, who was I to refuse her super sweet gift of sugar and spice?!  Exactly.
The struggle continued with me realizing after my workout I had finished off my protein power.
Have no fear, woke up in the early morning to a special delivery sent to me by someone special.
