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.

I Miss My Babies

 This use to be how I started my day.  
I'd have to fight my way out from under the blankets and all the legs piled on me.
With 3 four-legged babies on my bed, you'd have no idea that bed was a queen size.
Pyen Chi often joined me in the club but she was picky with who she let warm up to her
so she kept to hanging out with me while I trained and lounging behind the juice bar. 
Pac was never allowed to be in the club when members were present but he 
scored a lot of play time with me both in the morning and after club hours.
I love this picture of him and me; it's my favourite.  
We were always both so happy together, so smiley.
Pac was my shadow, never letting me out of his sight.
Pacquiao, Pyen Chi and Balboa... my beautiful babies.  I love them so much.
