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.

From Smelly Sweats to Sexy Style

Training out of my comfort zone meant stepping into the ring to spar with my new coach.
Am convinced my pain is their pleasure -- one got to hit me around for four rounds 
and then the other got to work out all the kinks in my sore muscles.
Another day of intense training, another day closer to the potential fight.
In the evening, I had to dress up for a family dinner function.
It was the one year passing anniversary of a family member.
 Guess who was my date.
Lots of family and lots of food... isn't this always the story with Filipinos?!  Yuppers. 
Trying to cut weight meant me avoiding temptation and sticking to attacking the protein at the buffet.
Ran into some of my fierce females from Empowered.  They were looking as gorgeous as ever but one is now happily sporting quite the baby-bump!!! Congrats!!!
