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.

Let's Get this Bad Boy Printed... Saturday, July 1

I celebrated Canada Day -- Canada's 150th birthday -- by finalizing my business plan set for here, in the Philippines.  It's been a busy week but today I finally got a chance to designate a good chunk of hours to working on my business proposal.  I finished it, finally, and then I headed out to print it.  No such luck.  Makati may be a busy and infested city during the week but when the weekend hits it's pretty dead here.  A lot of the businesses don't open because the people just aren't here.  More people work here than live here.

I can't even remember when I started working on my business plan but it was all set in Toronto and then a little over a month ago I decided to set it here in the Philippines so I had to change it all.  Toronto is so different than the Philippines and so I had to start a big portion of my research all over again.  But now it's done.  I was really hoping to get it printed today but now it'll have to wait till Monday.  

My business proposal is done... it's 49 pages long.
