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 Phone was Hilariously Hijacked

This past week I was given some new socks for my boxing.  On one sock it reads "slay" and on the other it reads "team".  Slay is an English slay word that no Filipino at my boxing club knew what it meant.  I explained the meaning to them and it was funny hearing them try to use it.  I gave Coach Bogs a pair of my socks and today he wore them.  I was outside, walking to the boxing club, when I spotted him down the street eating at a local street vendor, wearing them.  Instantly I broke out into a loud laugh.

Occasionally my phone gets hijacked by the coaches if I leave it out on the open, on the boxing ring floor.  Today it was hijacked.  Coach Bogs thought it funny to take random pictures... and some of us thought it even funnier to photo bomb his pictures.
