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.

Beauty in Asia

Headed over to Green Belt today, it's a shopping mall here.  And while standing there, scanning the scene with my eyes, I couldn't help but giggle at how the Philippines many of my friends in 
Canada envision is so different than the Philippines I live in.  I live in the REAL Philippines and 
it's gorgeous and full of so much wonderful potential.
 I was treated out to a beautiful meal out by some beautiful friends.
The Philippines has street cats like Korea but they're not as scary.
This beautiful little one slept under our table while I ate.  I'm not much of a cat person, I used to be, but this tiny one had me pondering how to sneak it home in my bag.  The picture doesn't do it justice though.  He was super tiny, about the size of my shoe!
