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.

An Overdose of Awesomeness and Caffeine

 Me overdosing on coffee?!  Perhaps but this is the face I give when someone tells me coffee is bad.
Coffee is the fuel of champions, it's what keeps me going.  "It's like a big hug", I told someone today.
Coffee today at an elegant cafe out of town.  I felt out of place with it 
being so pretty but I'll never say no to a good, strong cup of coffee.
This was actually coffee number 4 for me, an espresso.  
Worst espresso e-v-e-r so technically it doesn't even count as a coffee, right?!
Check it out... Skittles rocking the room and owning the stage!
 A celebratory meal, to congrats him on his inspiring speech and the many, many, MANY wonderful things that are surely bound to come his way.
Okay, so perhaps that salad wasn't the entire meal... this was!  Holy mac & cheese!  
My mom never made it like this, woozers!!!
 ...and a little dessert to finish it all off.  First time ever eating anything red velvet.
Returned home to resume work -- editing the Empowered custom design gloves.
...and our custom hand wraps.  Now to get these badgirls made at my supplier in Pakistan.
