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.

Fighting the Temptation and Then the Heat

 If carbs are my kryptonite than Wildflour is hell for me... the temptation is so very real!
This is where I had breakfast today... where every ounce of self restraint and control was tested!
You'll be proud of me to hear that I was successful in fighting off those carbs.
I got a mushroom omelette with a side salad and a strong cup of freshly brewed coffee.  Holy delish!
Wildflour here in Makati, yet another hidden gem I've discovered.  Love, love, LOVE this city!!!
I'm a fan of some of the cars here too.
This is my ride and by "ride" I mean the two flip flops I'm walking around in the rain with.
 First day at Elite Boxing meant I met my new coach -- Coach Bogs.
I think I'm going to have to lose weight if I want to spar with him.  He fights at 105lbs!
