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.

Morning Training and Evening Eats

Chatting with Coach Bogs ringside on a Friday morning about my injury.
 ...and then busting a move for the sake of being silly and chopping down the seriousness of training.
I should note here my mouth is open not because of me trying to be funny but because throwing my arm up like that was rather painful considering I've got an injury.
 Discovered a new mall here in Makati and headed straight for the food court where the restaurants display plastic renditions of the meals they offer.
For less than $2 CDN I got a cup of rice with an egg on top, a tiny big of veggies, two steak skewers, and a bowl of soup.  I felt full but the super cheap low price had me questioning it a bit.  I'm all for cheap food but this was ultra cheap.  Perhaps I ate cat?!... hahaha.
