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.

Planning and the Change of Plans

Spent my afternoon in the present of a dream materializing.
I was sight seeing the much anticipated new location for some's next dream.  No, not my dream, 
but trust me, it definitely got me thinking and got me missing the beginning days of Hulk's.
In the evening I attended at party hosted by Heineken.  
I had missed out on last night's party so I definitely wasn't going to miss tonight's.
It was hosted in this amazing old building where the ceiling opened up at various points 
to expose the above floors looking down.
Unfortunately we ended up having to leave the cool beats of that party but we managed to find another great party with equally cool beats, over at 20 20.
 I'm friends with one of the owners of this place so there's always someone I know here, her, 
but the place is always buzzing with interesting people.
The place got packed pretty quickly though so I found a cozy end of the bar to occupy and dance in.
