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.

An Overdose of Friends, Family and Food

Breakfast and coffee with one of my favourite friends who, ironically enough, is Filipino.
Then it was off to meet up with The Captain... note the backpack I'm wearing!!!
Inside that massive bag was a blow-up kayak.  It was a bit brutal carrying it on my back 
while on the motorcycle but it was so worth it!!!
Ended up meeting up with MaG and two of her friends on the lake.
Look at that; what a sight!  Now I know why MaG is always at the cottage.
I got cool points for surprising my nieces and showing up on a motorcycle.
But really it was The Captain that helped me score those cool points.
He brought sunglasses for all my nieces and nephews and then he let them all, including my dad, have a seat on his motorcycle.  They loved it!
Today we all celebrated Gilly-Bean's 6th birthday.
The house was packed with family.
After the party, The Captain and I jumped back on the bike and headed back to the cottage.
