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.

Side Vent... Tuesday, April 17

No word yet from Snickers in Korea regarding my Korean boxing license letter needed but the fight prep continues and so does the intensity with training.  Upping the intensity meant me stepping into the ring with my coach for sparring.  His reach was like the length of my legs though and he kept it out, right in front of my face, so it meant I really had to work to get in and fight on the inside.

I feel like everything has been put on hold because of this fight and the fact that it may not even happen turns my stomach.  

I need Snickers to get that letter of authorisation signed in Korea by the boxing commissioner.

One thing, one job... I asked him to do one job for me.

Three years ago I got up and left Korea.  I left Snickers with everything -- my dogs, my money, my business, and even all my belongings.  Whatever I could pack in my bag I took and whatever cash I had in my purse I took.  I left him everything.  He has everything of mine and yet he still is taking from me.

I can't even begin to express my disappointment and my annoyance with even having to deal with him regarding this situation.  

...and that's enough of me venting.

I wish I wrote about something else but this has been burdening me to no end... wow.
