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.

Hump Day Turns Out to be a Big Day

Headed over to MegaWorld for news on whether or not they accepted my business proposal.
Checked out a new space possibility over in McKinley.
Right now it's still being made so it's very much a diamond in the rough.
 ...a diamond in the very, very rough.
I love this picture.  It was snapped during my afternoon walk with Balboa.
There are always these little kids playing in the field across from my condo. On any given day there are 3-10 of them. They're so super friendly, so sweet and so simple in their intentions -- they just want to play with Balboa and show me their cartwheels. I think they're one of my favourite things about living here in my new place.
I was in pure workaholic mode today, drowning in work, losing sight of the hours I was plugging away on Empowered, when suddenly I got a message from a Philippine Matchmaker. 
The outdoor market opens on Wednesday evenings through to Saturday, 3am, and I can see it from my window.  I'm hooked on that Extreme Juice, it's ridiculous.  Even the seller knows it too.  Tonight I caved, I went and was treated to some of it... some of it's ridiculously fabulous awesomeness.
