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.

A Long Saturday Stroll Out of Town

This was brought to my attention the other day -- a mini mart here in Eastwood that 
sells ONLY Korean food items.  Today I checked it out.
I think there are more Korean foods that I crave compared to Canadian ones and today I picked 
up a few of my favourite Korean snackies, one of which is a great love of mine... BANANA MILK!!!
Unlike these local guys travelling with Mother Nature's natural air con (the wind),
I sat at the back of a packed shuttle bus as I headed out of town. 
It was an hour and a half commute to my destination so I 
munched on dried mangos and amused myself.
 And then I arrived.
 The point of the trip wasn't to go to the casino but we did take a stroll through it.
I'm an official member at two different Filipino places now -- Elorde Boxing Club and Resort World Manila Casino.  Great, like I'll ever use this card.  It gets me free shuttle bus service though.
