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 the Corner to the Floor

In my corner I had Coach Jun Jun.
In my opponent's corner, she had Coach Bon and two of her good friends.
Sunday morning sparring with a new sparring partner.
I was told we'd go three rounds but after two rounds we took a one round break and then went for two more.  It was great to have a new sparring partner to train with.  She seems really sweet and she gave a good fight in the ring.
See that cutie sipping on her drink and her table of 14, I'm with them. Celebrating a family birthday with lots of food, jokes and giggles.
Being healthy is a mind, body and spirit thing and my mind is definitely at ease seeing the amazing artwork in action of the very artist I plan to have illustrate my clubhouse wall.
