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.

It Has Arrived

My Uber pulled up to Immigration and low and behold what should be pulling up in front of me but the Police Bomb Squad.  Needless to say I got in and out of Immigration as fast as possible.  
Intimidating?  Yes, sure.
Enough to scare me of the Philippines?  Hell no.  I love this country. 
I'm jumping for joy... literally. 
Hot off the press today, my first copy of my business proposal.  It's finally in print.
I'll be going through it this week to fine tune it and then it'll be printed in colour.  Right now it's just black and white but it's fabulous.
