As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Here stands the saddest looking Christmas tree. Not only is it missing it's pointed top, it's missing a star, has no presents to keep it's bottom warm, it's branches are being weighed down with over sized bulbs, the lights are burning it's plastic branches and there it stands alone in the lobby of my building... it needs a hug!

Hey Amy,

In addition to photobucket, check out There are some cool things you can do with this website.

I enjoyed reading your poem. You must be thankful to have such a nice Korean friend by your side at a time like this. I am glad Kim Tae pulled through for you.

Have a fabulous trip back to Canada. You will be heading there at about the time I will be going back to Korea.

Hope you have a blast, just like me ;)
