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.

Living Tight... Tuesday, June 13

The stove isn't hooked up yet so I went ghetto for breakfast -- oatmeal mixed with yogurt and then I downed a protein shake.  And with no stove, it meant I had to go out to grab something to eat for lunch too.  Finally checked out those street vendors that line the streets.  There's one outside of my boxing club and I know the coaches go there so today I went there too.  I was pretty impressed actually.  Not only was it super dirt cheap but it tasted really good.

For 90,000Php ($2.43CDN) I got 2 bowls of rice, 2 bowls of soup, and 6 beef skewers.

The wifi isn't hooked up yet so I go ghetto for that too -- hang around the Family Mart for free wifi. Family Marts here have tables with chairs set up so it's not as ghetto as it sounds.  I'm not the only one milking free wifi apparently.
