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.

Catching Some Cage Fight Action with Manny

I watched the fights with Manny Pacquiao!!!
Okay, so maybe I didn't sit with him and discuss the awesomeness of the sport and how there's a four-legged little boy in Korea, my dog, named after him, but he was there and I was there too. 
The main fight of the night was a title belt one and the crowd was pumped for it!

Having the home-grown fighter win only made the crowd fall more in love with him and the celebration with the fireworks and whatnot was awesome.
It was a wicked fight, he gave it his all, both fighters gave it their all, and the whole show with all the other shows was really quite the sight to see and experience to feel.
I used to claim that Korea was the Land of Opportunity with Cheonan being the perfect platform for my first dream, for Hulk's Boxing.  On route home from the fight tonight I passed by this sign.  "The City of Dreams"... is this more than just a sign or is it "a sign"?!
