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.

Taking the Beast Shopping for Some Beauty

It reads "training like a beast" on my shirt and I feel that's exactly what I've been doing.
Today Coach Bogs heard all about how rough and tough Friday's coach was on me.  It didn't stop him from killing me on combo work though when we did pad work together though.
I have officially killed my only heels I have.  They're past being borderline embarrassing.  They're embarrassing now so today I headed out of town to Greenhills to get new heels.
The mall itself is massive and infested with people but there are the outer parts of it that are people-less and pretty, like this floral shop section and the church area smack dab in the middle of the ciaos.
