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.

Random Birthday Wishing... Friday, July 29

I'm turning 36 on the 6th in the 6ix.... sweet.

My birthday wishlist:

1.  14oz Reyes boxing gloves
2.  Size 5.5 Adidas high top boxing boots, preferably black
3.  Size 5.5 Adidas high top kicks, no colour preference
4.  A chunky silver wrist watch
5.  A P.O. Box
6.  A gift card for No Frills

Snickers isn't into holidays so he's definitely not into giving gifts.  Consequently, every year I've bought my own Christmas present, my own Valentine's Day chocolates and my own birthday gift.  I've become used to it but this year I honestly can't afford to drop extra cash on a gift because I don't have extra cash.  I have minimum cash and it barely covers my necessities.  I've been saving my change for my birthday cake, that's my gift to myself this year -- a Reese Pieces Peanut Butter ice cream birthday cake from Dairy Queen.
