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.

Sweet, Sweat, and Spectacular

I pass through my former condo in Makati when I go to boxing, it's a quick shortcut, and today the front desk girls stopped me to tell me I had mail! My dad had sent me a Christmas card and so did one of my friends in Korea.  Talk about an amazingly sweet surprise!!!
 Working those pad with Coach Bogs but feeling somewhat like a zombie.
 I attended a gala showing tonight at The Refined but didn't stick around very long.  Today's training and the build-up of kilometers I've been piling on my runners was taking it's toll on me so I wanted to go home and crash.  On route home, I snapped this picture.  It's of one of the parks by my new condo and it was infested with so many people training.
