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.

My Heart is Here but Partly still in Korea

Today I was interviewed by TV5 regarding the much anticipated upcoming Mayweather vs McGregor fight so they sent a crew to my boxing club to meet up with me and film the interview.
Everyone has an opinion on the fight, of course, so we got my coach in on the interview too. 
Thanks to TV5 for the interview.  
It was a great experience and I'm looking forward to seeing the final product.
I was on such a high from today's interview and killing it at training... and then this happened.
Snickers sent me a text message on KakaoTalk and then sent pictures of my dogs, starting with Pacquiao.

I miss my beautiful boy Pac so very much but I know it'd be cruel to bring him to the Philippines and subject him to condo life.  What hurts me the most though is knowing he's not getting the kisses, hugs and attention that I use to give him.  I wonder when was the last time anyone ever kissed him.
...and then a picture of Pyen Chi with this new guy, Hulk.
Hulk Jr, Pac and Pyen's baby, no longer lives at the boxing club and has since been given a new home.  Hulk has joined the four-legged crew though.  He's a Russian dog--  a Caucasian Ovcharka with chopped ears that's expected to grow to be potentially 200lbs.

Didn't you say your dogs were living alone on the roof? How is that in any way better than living in a condo?
