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.

Going Non Stop... Friday, September 29

With yesterday being a jam-packed, business-filled kind of overdose of a day, I tried to take a step back and breath today but that was a no-go.  I had boxing to go to, Yummy Diet to deal with, business meetings to set up, and business emails to respond to.

My days are long but with friends from Toronto here my long days have been turning into long nights.

Tonight was no exception.

Two of the four from Toronto are staying in my condo building.  I woke up at 6am today to wish one a safe travel home and tomorrow another one will be leaving.  It's bittersweet to see them leave.  Soon my life will resume to normal.  It'll go back to being business and boxing only focused, training long and working late on business.  But with them gone it means I won't have a little piece of Toronto here to remind me of all the friends and whatnot I miss in Toronto.  

Sometimes I wonder if my friends in Toronto miss me as much as I miss them and sometimes I wonder if they even know I miss them so much.

But anyways...

...back to my story...

With one gone and another leaving tomorrow, tonight we decided to make a late night of it.  We went out.  First it was dinner out.  Dinner was followed by stopping by a friend's hair salon where he and other friends were hanging out after hours.  From there we then swung back to the condo to change and then went out again, this time to a friend's bar.  From that bar we then went to another bar -- a club called Black Market.  

My day had started at 6am and I was heading home at 2am.  

I had been up for 20 hours which was extra rough considering yesterday's nonstop day.
