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.

My Four-Legged Love

Balboa with Mono, my friend's little one.
Balboa doesn't look like a big boy until he's next to another chihuahua.
Balboa's not a fan of anyone smaller than him.  In fact, he's a bit of a snob to smaller dogs but 
Mono is super curious about Balboa and I think he likes the companionship.
 Headed out to High Street today to do some work outside of my condo so I brought Balboa.
He's super chill when I'm working.  He just sits there and watches people passing by.

The problem though is that Balboa gets a ton of attention sitting there, because he is so chill.  He must have had over a dozen people walk by and stop by to pet him.  Some took pictures, others asked about him, and one couple even volunteered to dog sit him.  It's true.  He's such a magnet for attention.  Even dogs approach him.
I must admit even I can't keep my focus on work too long before I find myself 
scooping him up for cuddles and kisses.  He is loved so much.
