As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. 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 left. I returned to Toronto, Canada with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at 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.

The Crazy Fruit Man Strikes Back... Monday, August 15

Houston, we have a problem.

The crazy fruit man has returned and now he's adding veggies to his pile of ammunition.

Yes, veggies.

And yes, there is a man here in Cabbagetown we refer to as the "crazy fruit man" though we're not entirely sure if it's a man, a child, a teenager, or perhaps a female.

A couple of weeks ago someone threw a pear from one the neighboring apartment buildings that looks over the local pool where I do my laps and houses about 200 single units.  The pear came flying down from the high rise and splattered into a billion, zillion pieces upon hitting the pool side deck.  A lemon followed about ten minutes later and then security showed up.

The pear came about 5 feet from hitting a female sunbather on the deck and the lemon came about a similar distance from hitting a female swimmer in the pool.  Since the pear and the lemon, more random pieces of fruit have been thrown down.  I joked and said I wished I had been there when the fruit was thrown; I would have tried to catch it.  Hey, I'm a starving athlete, that's some good fruit he's wasting, seriously.

We don't know from where and we don't know from who but security isn't impressed and nor are us who use the pool.  The other day when the two pieces of fruit, the pear and the lemon, were thrown, security from one of the buildings came out and watched the one building while we all swam.  He must have stood there for a good few hours just watching the windows to see if this crazy fruit-throwing men tried to chuck anything else.  This is dangerous and with the increase of fruit being thrown down this is getting ridiculous.  

Today he, whoever "he" is, added veggies to the list of things he throws.  Today a full bag of onions was thrown.
