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.

Dressed up to Dine out and Drown out Today's "Bumps"

I had promised Poo I'd join him for a night of dinner and dancing so that's exactly what
went down tonight -- dinner and dancing... and me all dolled up.
Back in the day, over 11-12 years ago, this used to be my typical Saturday night.
We'd head out to a gorgeous Portuguese restaurant and wine and dine till they closed.
It was like a night of deja vu but it was beautiful.
We had dined at a favourite restaurant where we're quite familiar with the owners and staff.  It's a family owned and operated restaurant and tonight, long after they had approached closing time, we sat around joking with them.
Tonight's joke: reasons why not to get married.
