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.

From Fighting to Feasting

Gearing up for sparring.
I haven't been at Elorde for a month and a half now because I've changed homes and cities, 
but today I was back and I was there for some intense sparring.
Originally I was scheduled to step into the ring with Coach Arman but plans changed and next thing 
I knew it I was stepping into the ring with a former champ... Coach Rocky.
Our sparring got a bit dirty, with me bullying him at the side of the ropes.  Oh, I love the ropes!
I've been working on using my upper cut more and I scored some mean ones today.
Coach Rocky.  He doesn't say much but he says a lot in the ring with how he fights.
From beast in the ring to beauty outside of it, I then had to doll up for a dinner party out tonight.
A friend of a friend was having a soft opening tonight of their restaurant, Souv, out in BGC.
It was a "menu simulation" party which meant we were to test out the dishes, the staff, the restaurant itself.  I was lured there by the free food but it's the company that made it fabulous.
