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.

Bye, Bye Goldie


My day started up on such a sunny note... breakfast outside with my 
four-legged little sunshine, Mr. Balboa Button. 

It ended with him too, standing on my fresh-from-the-printers Empowered flyers.

In between breakfast and working into the late hours, I said goodbye to my goldy locks.

Off to Kapwa to get my hair dyed.
The last time I had my hair dyed was almost 4 months ago.. yikes.
"Colour me fierce", I told her and, well, that's exactly what she did.  Love it!!!
I should note my hair is so much lighter in person... silly lighting, stealing my fierceness.
I had spent a chunk of my day at the hair salon so with a long list of things I wanted to get done today, I ended up having to cancel my evening plans.  I was suppose to go to a big family dinner party.  Instead, I worked at home.  They surprised me by video calling me to check in, super sweet!

Goldie means blond. How did you say goodbye to goldie locks if you made your hair blonder than it was before?

Hi Anonymous,

It was actually very easy for me to say. There are over 20 different shades of blonde and I dropped the gold blonde and went for an ashy blonde.
