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.

Making the Most Out of This Saturday

Today's Empowered boot camp was a Tabata workout with 30 seconds on, 15 seconds off.
 Four of my six Empowered sisters showed up for training.
Last week they had rain and this week they had an excess of sun and heat.
 Celebrating another slayed workout with Empowered.
I had some errands to do today so I took Balboa with me today.
I had to venture back to the mall... malls... where I got lost yesterday.  
I didn't get quite as lost today but boy did we walk a lot.
Headed over to the vet so that Balboa could get his nails trimmed.  He was such a good boy for them and he scored a most unexpected kiss on the forehead from one of the vets.  Super sweet.
 In the evening I was spoiled with a beautiful night out, starting with a special dinner at my favourite restaurants, Crying Tiger.  It's a Thai place that has amazing food and I love the vibe of the place.  It's tucked away down a side street so it's a bit out of the way but it's well worth the trek.

Dinner at Crying Tiger and than dessert, halo-halo, at The Pennisula.
Within The Pennisula hotel is one of my favourite places here in Makati, The Salon De Ning.  I first saw this place on my birthday and today marked my third time coming here.  I absolutely love the amazing energy here, the dancers, the live music and the staff here are so sweet.  I was approached by several of the staff who recognized me and approached me to personally tell me it was nice to see me again.  Best place to spend a Saturday night in Makati hands down!!!
