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.

A Rainy Sunday But a Very Beautiful One

An open market takes over the corner parking lot down the street from my condo every single Sunday and today I headed over to check it out.  
A Filipino street food.  You see these guys always in the morning.
I can't remember the name of it but it's warm tofu that they pour a hot sugary liquid over.
I was very impressed, wow.  It was a sensory overload for your senses.
I most definitely could get very comfortable enjoying this every Sunday.  It's amazing!
Decided not to go to the CCF branch here in Makati and instead visit a different church -- the Union Church of Manila.  It's right across the street from the open market and it was as cozy as it was genuine feeling and sweet. 
I was approached by numerous members who all really wanted me to fit in, that was sweet, and then they gave me ice cream!!! Ice cream use to be the way to my heart (now it's just food in general) but I thought that was very cool.  They're just a church of comfortable, casual people and I really appreciated that.
