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.

Beauty in Asia

Headed over to Green Belt today, it's a shopping mall here.  And while standing there, scanning the scene with my eyes, I couldn't help but giggle at how the Philippines many of my friends in 
Canada envision is so different than the Philippines I live in.  I live in the REAL Philippines and 
it's gorgeous and full of so much wonderful potential.
 I was treated out to a beautiful meal out by some beautiful friends.
The Philippines has street cats like Korea but they're not as scary.
This beautiful little one slept under our table while I ate.  I'm not much of a cat person, I used to be, but this tiny one had me pondering how to sneak it home in my bag.  The picture doesn't do it justice though.  He was super tiny, about the size of my shoe!
