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.

Positive Things from Morning to Night

Headed out of town to the Fort where I was introduced to the location of a much anticipated new business -- Skittles' new business.  I'm so excited for him and it was very cool to see his new space.
It's beautiful, has amazing potential and it's very cool to be experiencing this and seeing it all go down before my eyes.  It's exciting but it's also intimidating.  Skittles is killing it here, seriously.
I was snapping pictures in Skittles' new space when I happened to look out the window and spot something.  Across the street was the artwork of the very artist I'm hoping to hire to do some wall graffiti in my new business.  I then went outside and snapped this picture with it.
 And then I spotted more of his artwork -- that beautiful heart.  Very cool.  
Hired this man to do some simple artwork for me today -- the printing of my crop sweater.
He put "Coach Amy" on the front for me and "Empowered" on the back.
 With my newly printed crop top on, I headed out to meet up with the Makati Running Club.
 It was my first time running with them, something I've been wanting to do for the last week and a half but couldn't because spontaneous business meetings.
 Definitely going to try harder to make it out to more runs, for sure.  They run daily at 6am but I'm not a morning person.  They also run every Tuesday and Thursday at 8:30pm.  I hoping to make at least one of these two evening runs on a weekly bases.
