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.

A Pocket Full of Sunshine Today

Sparring with Coach Adamson on this hotter-than-Hell Thursday early afternoon.

Training in this heat is one thing but sparring in it, wow.  It's a whole other level baby!
With his long reach and fast footwork, he makes it hard for me to get in and land some solid punches on him but damn I do love sparring. Sparring with Coach Adamson today, because why just box when you can step into the ring and punch someone?!... hahaha.

Current POV at exactly 2:08pm. Just returned from boxing but was craving sweets so I'm indulging in a mixed fruit drink. It's got coconut, apple, melon, banana, papaya, orange, dragon fruit, kiwi
... and more, I'm sure. All for 50Php ($1.25Cdn).

Some down time with Balboa in the afternoon.
It's a quiet life, especially the life of an athlete but being an entrepreneur too means I work alone a lot.  Thanks to Balboa for keeping me company as I work, even if it's him sitting in the window and watching the sunset.
