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.

Working not Wishing... Sunday, December 3

My Grown-Up Christmas List:
  1. divorce finalized
  2. new training leggings, tank tops and sports bras!!!
  3. a Philippine title fight
  4. Olga Ali (Empowered four-legged "worker")
  5. six pack abs
  6. sponsorship from a food delivery company
  7. my dad to visit me in the Philippines
  8. have The Captain come visit 
  9. plane ticket to Korea to see my dogs, friends and sponsors
  10. some of my personal belongings from my club in Korea
I don't believe in Santa Claus and I don't believe in handouts or waiting and wishing for things to happen so I'm trying to be productive about making my own Christmas wishlist become a reality.  I think the only far-fetched item on my Grown-up Christmas list is #7.  If I lived in Korea for 11.5yrs and my parents never once visited me then the chances of my father coming to the Philippines is close to impossible... impossible times two.
