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.

Friday in Makati

Headed to Elite for morning boxing.
I train alongside this particular Muay Thai fighter from Thailand every week but today are ages became a topic of discussion at the club.  I thought I had props for being the age that I am and being so healthy and active... and then I found out her age.  
She's 49 years young, gorgeous, strong, and boy does she have a mean kick to her!
 I learnt a hard lesson today -- give your body one day off training.
Not too sure what Balboa was doing here.  I think he was just yawning but that yawn caught on camera looks like he's seriously telling people to leave me alone and let me sleep.
Balboa, my four-legged little companion and apparently my personal body guard, nice.
