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.

Good Girl Gone Bad.. By Mistake, Kind of

On route to church, I realized why I still had so much Canadian change in my bag.
I've been using Filipino peso.  It was an honest mistake and I was kind of embarrassed when I made the realization but then I did it again... purposely.
It felt so good to step foot into Grant African Church today.  I honestly missed this place so much.

I figured with it being Sunday and me having gone to church today that I better at least try to be an honest person and not use my pesos on the TTC... at least not for the rest of the day.  The TTC is super expensive, this whole city is expensive compared to the Philippines, so I told myself it was either take the TTC home or grab a coffee.
Coffee is ALWAYS the answer.  There really is no need to question it.
