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.

Fight Day in Korea, Food Day in the Philippines

It was a big fight day in Korea with one of my favourite amateur fighters stepping 
in the ring, fighting out of my club, Hulk's.
 Four of the five fighters from Hulk's won their bouts.
And there was another big fight going on in Korea today.
 I wasn't fighting in the ring today but I was fighting some major hunger pains.
I went to Picnic for lunch and then was treated to an amazing Japanese restaurant in the evening. 
I was spoiled with all the delish dishes that graced our table.
 And then we headed for dessert.
 All this mingling is tough stuff, no, I'm serious.  I really try to steer away from dinner out but there's this fabulous lady who is quite the foodie and who keeps on "insisting" I join her.  Dining out with her isn't so often and I usually enter in the meal with a "recovery plan" for the next day which means I go anti-carbs and eat super clean.
