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.

Calorie Killing and then Overdosing

I've added Saturday morning run to my weekly training and stopping for this picture, I realized this run and the spontaneity with where it took me was so metaphoric for my life.
Two years ago I was living in Korea.
Several months ago I was living in Canada.
One month ago I moved to the Philippines after what was simply suppose to be a 3 month visit.
Enjoyed an amazing dinner out with these two amazing people at a Japanese restaurant tonight.
Nothing makes you feel extra special like the head chef and co-owner pulling up a chair to talk to you.  My dinner guests are familiar with these two men so it was really nice to personally meet them.
 Some of the ultra delish dishes that we feasted on tonight.
And of course the desserts.  They were completely packed to the max with full flavours and lots of sweetness.  It was an overdose of sweetness but who was I to complain?!  Exactly.
