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.

...But First Coffee

 My new favourite breakfast -- the granola bowl at Wildflour Cafe.
After breakfast I did a bit of exploring at a local park.  My intentions were to actually go see the fitness gym located on the other side of it but I got a bit distracted.  I ended up checking out the gym but not after snapping some pictures and sight seeing at this gorgeous park.
I don't have boxing today but that doesn't mean it's a day off training.
Afternoon laps in the pool and then evening weight training.
I love how you can see the cranes working away in the background.
The Philippines is a beautiful country that's evolving and only getting better and I thought it rather symbolic with where I'm at in my life and the path I'm on.
