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.

Visiting Friends out in the Sticks

After my early morning meeting, I met up with one of my favourite people -- J-Doll.
We had agreed to meet at the St. Lawrence Market, which meant it was a sensory overload for my taste buds and trying to pick up what to eat for lunch was close to impossible.  
My mind said bread, bread, and more bread but my waistline said no, no, no.
Later in the evening I headed way out of town to my friend's cottage.
Arrived and one of my friends was cooking up quite the birthday feast!
There was food everywhere!!!
There were friends everywhere too.
And then someone started up a campfire... oh ya!!!
I wish I could have stayed for it but it was already after midnight and I had over an hour drive back into the city.  Next time though.  Next time I'll sleep over!!!
