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.

Sunday Shopping

Headed to the mall today, Greenbelt... and yes, this IS the mall.

It's actually the middle part of the mall but, ya, not what you were expecting right?! Neither is the rest of the Philippines if you were to come here. This past week I entertained friends from Toronto visiting the Philippines for the first time. Can you say "mind blown", because that's what happened.
A friend of mine had noticed these particular shirts at H&M so I headed over to grab a couple.

...and then I started noticing other fierce female-like shirts had on the neighbouring racks.

Yet another reason why I don't like shopping -- so many cool things to 
buy but so little money to actually buy anything.
Shopping at the local Sunday market and then shopping at Greenbelt, all the while accompanied by my trusting little adorable companion, Mr. Balboa Button.  Shopping proved to be too much for the both of us though.  We literally shopped till we dropped.
