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.

Sweets, Sweeties, Sweat... and lots of Smiles

That gorgeous guy is my chiropractor.  I told him I only eat candy when I come for my appointments with him so he offered me the whole bag.  It was tempting but I only took 3.
After my appointment I headed downtown and this was the scene I encountered when I exited the subway.  I counted 10 police on bikes... wow.
Had to drop off some stuff for my friend so I swung by his office.
He knows my love of espresso is as strong as the caffeine itself so he spoiled me with two cups of espresso... nice!!!
My girl Madi works with him so me showing up was a surprise for her.
I cashed in on some hugs with her and she joined us for coffee... coffee and eggs actually.  Kind of a weird mix for them but definitely something that fits in with my clean eating lifestyle.
Gloves for him and coffee for her.... hugs, coffee and catching-up chats for me.
Then it was off to boxing where I then sweated like a beast training.
I'm sporting a beat red face from exhausting myself at boxing but I'm totally happy.
I love what I do and am doing what I love -- boxing in Canada.
