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.

Good Girl Gone Bad.. By Mistake, Kind of

On route to church, I realized why I still had so much Canadian change in my bag.
I've been using Filipino peso.  It was an honest mistake and I was kind of embarrassed when I made the realization but then I did it again... purposely.
It felt so good to step foot into Grant African Church today.  I honestly missed this place so much.


I figured with it being Sunday and me having gone to church today that I better at least try to be an honest person and not use my pesos on the TTC... at least not for the rest of the day.  The TTC is super expensive, this whole city is expensive compared to the Philippines, so I told myself it was either take the TTC home or grab a coffee.
Coffee is ALWAYS the answer.  There really is no need to question it.
