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 Rainy Sunday But a Very Beautiful One

An open market takes over the corner parking lot down the street from my condo every single Sunday and today I headed over to check it out.  
A Filipino street food.  You see these guys always in the morning.
I can't remember the name of it but it's warm tofu that they pour a hot sugary liquid over.
I was very impressed, wow.  It was a sensory overload for your senses.
I most definitely could get very comfortable enjoying this every Sunday.  It's amazing!
Decided not to go to the CCF branch here in Makati and instead visit a different church -- the Union Church of Manila.  It's right across the street from the open market and it was as cozy as it was genuine feeling and sweet. 
I was approached by numerous members who all really wanted me to fit in, that was sweet, and then they gave me ice cream!!! Ice cream use to be the way to my heart (now it's just food in general) but I thought that was very cool.  They're just a church of comfortable, casual people and I really appreciated that.
