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.

Surrounded by Success

I posted this picture tonight on my Instagram and Facebook, and noted how you should do your thing unapologetically.  Be proud of who you are, do what's best for you, and always surrounds yourself with those who life you up and not pull you down.
I got all dolled up tonight for yet another business networking event.  
This time it was a wine tasting at a wine museum.
I didn't really know what to expect from this event but I really did enjoy it.  It was interesting to hear the long history behind this age-old family company that started back in the 1800's then to meet some of the family and mingle with those in attendance.
