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.

Location Hunting and Hating Theses Heels

Despite already having my heart set on a location, today I headed out to see some more.
This place was pretty awesome.  The parking alone was fantastic but the building came with too many complications in terms of how the owner is splitting it up and trying to rent it out.
After seeing three possible spots, I decided to walk in the direction of my home, to see the area.
Ran into some spots that definitely fed the outsider's view of what they think the Philippines is.
The Philippines is nothing like what most people think it is, those who have never visited that is.
Here is the Philippines that's not really advertised, the bigger part of the country that is gorgeous and overly populated with lots of trees and plants.
In the evening I headed out for a Louis Vuitton private party so I had to get all dolled up for that.
I got dolled up, sure, but I wasn't exactly comfortable.  I'm an athlete before I'm a lady.
