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 Lights and Prettiness of Fort BGC

Headed out of town to the beautiful city of Fort BGC -- Bonifacio Global City, and was treated to dinner.
Dinner consisted of various equally delish dishes but the one that stood out, beyond the potato bombs that is, was the black rice.  It's actually dyed rice, using the ink from squid.  Very cool, ultra delish.
BGC is rather too posh and too pretty for me.  It reminds me of Yorkville in Toronto if Yorkville was spread out and consisted of blocks upon blocks of commercial buildings and sky high condos.
 Add the palm trees and, well, sorry Toronto but BGC beats your Yorkville!
But I still think my Eastwood beats BGC.  I like BGC but it always feels good to return to 
my home-away-from home, Eastwood.
