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.

The Rugby Players Hang up Their Cleats for Boxing Gloves

The Rugby Rumble and I was there!!!
...I clearly wasn't the only one there either.  The place was packed!!!
VIP tickets meant I didn't have to stand like a sardine in the crowd though.
They had a sectioned off VIP area with a private bathroom, a free bar and even a caterer.
Best fight of the night for me, the twin sisters going at it.
The other fight of interest for me involved a fighter my buddy 
whom I had come there with had trained.
His whole immediate family had come out for his fight and I thought that was awesome.  I chatted a lot with them all, especially his mom.  She's the gorgeous blonde, two heads in from the right corner.  What an amazingly supportive woman!
After the fights, my crew and I headed out to Revival for some old school beats and karaoke that wasn't really karaoke but soon-to-be paid performers!!!
And what's a night out without meeting some new people.  
I made some new gal pals in the girls' bathroom, apparently.
