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.

Christmas Eve with the De Castro Family

 Attending a family Christmas party today and they surprised me with gifts.  They're so sweet!!!
Good thing I wore my white shirt here, seriously.  Totally didn't know they'd be taking a family picture or asking me to be a part of it but I had a good laugh at it all.  I wore my white shirt because it was either it or my black tank top.  I thought the white shirt looked nicer. 
Headed from one house to another, the place where the big family party was being held.
It was decked from top to bottom with an overdose of Christmas spirit!!!

Everything was in overdose mode.
And, of course, where there are Filipinos there is also bound to be a lot of food!!!
