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.

From Beast to Beauty

Today I went from beast...
...to beauty... or at least I tried.
I had a business dinner to get to so I had to get my exhausted, gym nasty sweaty self dolled up.
Tonight's dinner party was being held at the spectacular a restaurant located at La Shangri Hotel.
The restaurant was called the Raging Bull and at the next table over sat some local celebrities.
I snapped this picture of them as I left.  I'm not into the life of the so-called rich and famous but that's the kind of clientele this place attracts.  It's a pretty posh place.
 It definitely had a rich vibe to the place -- stunningly gorgeous.  
I argue that the company who joined me at my table made the restaurant and evening memorable but it definitely helped that the salmon I ordered was melt-in-my-mouth delish and the apple crumble pie gave me the warm fuzzies.
