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.

Location Hunting and Hating Theses Heels

Despite already having my heart set on a location, today I headed out to see some more.
This place was pretty awesome.  The parking alone was fantastic but the building came with too many complications in terms of how the owner is splitting it up and trying to rent it out.
After seeing three possible spots, I decided to walk in the direction of my home, to see the area.
Ran into some spots that definitely fed the outsider's view of what they think the Philippines is.
The Philippines is nothing like what most people think it is, those who have never visited that is.
Here is the Philippines that's not really advertised, the bigger part of the country that is gorgeous and overly populated with lots of trees and plants.
In the evening I headed out for a Louis Vuitton private party so I had to get all dolled up for that.
I got dolled up, sure, but I wasn't exactly comfortable.  I'm an athlete before I'm a lady.
