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.

Party Time at Elite with Elite

Even before I arrived at the boxing club, I could hear the coaches from my condo.  
Showed up and realized why.  They had a karaoke machine and were having way too much fun with it.
Lots of singing was accompanied by lots of food.
I tried chicken liver for my first time today.  I'm not a fan.  Chicken liver in the Philippines 
and Chicken feet in Korea.. can't we just stick to eating chicken breasts, please?!
Games at a boxing club Christmas party get physical?!  Of course.
This was probably the funniest game I've ever seen.  Each team had to make sure their members fit on the paper when the music stopped but with each round the paper got smaller and smaller.
Me and the coaches, trainers and front desk staff of Elite Boxing, Makati.
