As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. 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 left. I returned to Toronto, Canada with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at 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 Morning Overdose of Caffeine

He had me at "free coffee".
I went to the Belle & Dragon today to watch the fights and was approached before I went in by a guy who working a display outside.  He was giving away free coffee so for a few poses with him for their company's advertising I was given unlimited free coffee... nice.
I only ended up having one coffee from him though.  
I vouch Belle & Dragon serves up the best cortado coffee ever, seriously, and I had been lured here with the promise of a cortado.  What I didn't anticipate though was scoring the best seats in the house -- a private room for my friends and I.
There ended up being eight of us in this private room and we got rather rowdy when the fights started.
 It wasn't until after the fights that I left our private room.  Many of the people watching the fight had already left but there was still a packed crowd.
