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.

A First Time Experience and I Loved It!

Trained through sore feet and bloody knuckles at the boxing club today.
Note, I am well aware that it looks like I peed my pants here, it looks like that every single day I train, but everyone here knows what I'm doing... I'm training.  
Looking pretty isn't my focus, killing it at training is.
Had my first ride in a jeepney today... loved it!!!
I insisted on sitting right at the door, right at the end.
It was pretty cool watching all the traffic behind us.
A small child jumped on the jeepney by himself.  He put a little brown envelop on my knee. Apparently it was for me to put any loose change in it if I wanted to.  He had no shoes on and his feet were super dirty consequently.  I watched him as he fell asleep on the seat across me and then woke up to jump off the jeepney and join his friend begging in the street.
Arrived at my destination, the Farmer's Market, 
feeling a bit heartbroken over the little boy on the jeepney.
 Loaded up on fresh veggies and fruit... delish!!!
