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.

Breakfast, Boys, a Bike, and the Beach

Started my day off on such an incredibly positive note -- a bike ride with an out-of-town special visitor, Foo Man Choo, who then took me to one of my favourite breakfast hotspots that's right across from a building I've labelled "my future club house".
In the afternoon I had another visitor, the Captain, and he joined me at the pool 
with my Cabbagetown crew while I did my laps.
Caught in the camera but dang those laps killed my legs so all I could do was 
hold up my kimchi fingers and give a peace sign.
I was revisited by Foo Man Choo today who then took me out for coffee and a spin around town in his convertible with the top down and beats pumped.
I've never been to this particular lakeside area but it was pretty sweet.
We walked up to a family having a campfire and chatted a bit with them.
Got to love Canadians for being so incredibly approachable and friendly.
And you got to just love Canada for being so pretty.
Tonight's lakeside was out in Mississauga, I'm not a fan of the Saug but I'm slowly becoming one.  Foo Man Choo lives in the Saug and he's trying to convert me.
