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.

The Grind Continues Despite It's a Holiday

It's just me here, walking in the middle of the street because with the holiday this city has turned into a complete ghost town.  There's closed businesses on my one side but a very busy and very loud boxing club to my other side.  
Holiday?!  What holiday, us boxers and coaches don't get a holiday.
Today, out of curiosity, several of us stepped on the scale.  We started with Coach Jun Jun.
Then it was Coach Bogs' turn.
Last but not least it was mine.
In Korea I weighed 107.  In Canada I got up to 135.  Now here in the Philippines I'm 126.6lbs.
Everyone including me was shocked.  I'm smaller than I have been in a long time but heavy.
"Pool party, my place, tonight... must be a boxer to attend", I posted on Facebook.
