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.

In Search of a Home

Took one last look at my condo in Makati, said goodbye, closed the door and left.
I was moving to The Fort today, to BGC, and I was super excited.
Talk about a excitement killer, I was stopped by security.  If I look not impressed it's because I wasn't.  Security told me I wasn't allowed to enter the building.
Found myself again at Tim Horton's.
I took this picture of me there yesterday, after dropping off some of my belongings at the new condo, and today I went there again, but only because I really had no other choice.

Homeless in the Philippines for a solid half a day.  
I couldn't have picked anyone better to be homeless with though.
Finally, after what felt like forever, homeless no more.
This is the view from my new condo in The Fort.  A different condo than originally 
the one I thought I'd be moving in.
