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.

Friday in Makati

Headed to Elite for morning boxing.
I train alongside this particular Muay Thai fighter from Thailand every week but today are ages became a topic of discussion at the club.  I thought I had props for being the age that I am and being so healthy and active... and then I found out her age.  
She's 49 years young, gorgeous, strong, and boy does she have a mean kick to her!
 I learnt a hard lesson today -- give your body one day off training.
Not too sure what Balboa was doing here.  I think he was just yawning but that yawn caught on camera looks like he's seriously telling people to leave me alone and let me sleep.
Balboa, my four-legged little companion and apparently my personal body guard, nice.
