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.

Calorie Killing and then Overdosing

I've added Saturday morning run to my weekly training and stopping for this picture, I realized this run and the spontaneity with where it took me was so metaphoric for my life.
Two years ago I was living in Korea.
Several months ago I was living in Canada.
One month ago I moved to the Philippines after what was simply suppose to be a 3 month visit.
Enjoyed an amazing dinner out with these two amazing people at a Japanese restaurant tonight.
Nothing makes you feel extra special like the head chef and co-owner pulling up a chair to talk to you.  My dinner guests are familiar with these two men so it was really nice to personally meet them.
 Some of the ultra delish dishes that we feasted on tonight.
And of course the desserts.  They were completely packed to the max with full flavours and lots of sweetness.  It was an overdose of sweetness but who was I to complain?!  Exactly.
