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.

Possibly Big News... Wednesday, May 30

I have good news and bad news. The good news is I may have a fight at 105lbs, the bad news is I don't actually know what I weigh right now and time really isn't on my side so I'm about to get really small, really fast.

I posted this as my Facebook status update today after my promotor met with me to discuss things.

On Monday I'll be heading to GAB in Makati to meet with the board to discuss the fight.  If I have a fight, I'll be submitting in my papers then and there so that they can start the process of registering me as a fighter from the Philippines.  I don't know what I'm more excited about, the possibility of a fight or being listed as a Pinoy fighter.  I think the latter of the two; it'd be an honour.
