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.

Highlights of My New Found Hood

Yup, definitely a good call on breakfast out.  I'm sure that pretty young waitress who stopped me in the street to tell me about this all-you-can-eat breakfast wasn't thinking I'd eat my weight in food here but voila, here I am, day two of doing exactly that.  As for the rest of the day, I eat like a typical starving athlete.
 Went exploring my "hood" today and this is the view from the 5th floor balcony.
It looks down on the outdoor mall.  In the middle there, that's all water.
 On the 5th floor there's a condo gym, holy ghetto, and an outdoor pool, holy awesome.
 There's also a garden too and it's the perfect get-away spot in the busyness of downtown here.
Checked out a bit of the night life here when I was treated out to dinner tonight.
