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.

Home Coffee and Home Girls

It's funny because just when I feel miles away from "home", I stop and ponder where I really have labeled "home".  I still very much feel like it's Korea but then there are times when I feel it's Canada. Today I was out of town and was shown this place -- Tim Horton's!!!  And you know I couldn't just simply walk on by.  I had to get a cup.  Got a double, double and yup, it tasted just like home... home 1 of 2.   
The Philippines is starting to feel like a home away from home, a third home, and the fact that I'm meeting some fabulous new friends here is most definitely aiding in creating this feeling.
Enjoyed the company of two super sweet ladies, a mother and daughter team.
