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.

One Family-Packed Super Sunday

See that pretty lady in the middle of the crowd of people, today she turned 101!!! 
We all traveled to her house today for her birthday party and what a party, wow.  
It was catered so in addition to the whack of people present there was also a ton of food.
Hey little piggy.  At first glance, I honestly checked to see if this little porky was missing his ear.
I didn't indulge in the food but I did jump all over the coffee!
The Doctor in the family, well one of two doctors, asked me if I wanted coffee and I was sold but when he pulled out a tin of Tim Horton's coffee, then I was all smiles.  A man that lives in the Philippines but likes Tim Horton's coffee?!  No wonder he's a doctor; he's a smart man.
In between the party and shopping, we stopped by an old church that was made in 1602.
This picture really doesn't do any real justice to just how massive and how gorgeous it was.
And speaking of church, at the shopping mall there was a church built right in the mall.
I didn't have the heart to tell them that I actually don't like shopping.
I only like shopping when it's for groceries or for training gear.
 I do love eating though so when I was asked if I wanted to eat, well, you didn't have to ask me twice.
