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.

An Overdose of Friends, Family and Food

Breakfast and coffee with one of my favourite friends who, ironically enough, is Filipino.
Then it was off to meet up with The Captain... note the backpack I'm wearing!!!
Inside that massive bag was a blow-up kayak.  It was a bit brutal carrying it on my back 
while on the motorcycle but it was so worth it!!!
Ended up meeting up with MaG and two of her friends on the lake.
Look at that; what a sight!  Now I know why MaG is always at the cottage.
I got cool points for surprising my nieces and showing up on a motorcycle.
But really it was The Captain that helped me score those cool points.
He brought sunglasses for all my nieces and nephews and then he let them all, including my dad, have a seat on his motorcycle.  They loved it!
Today we all celebrated Gilly-Bean's 6th birthday.
The house was packed with family.
After the party, The Captain and I jumped back on the bike and headed back to the cottage.
