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.

Just Another Day for Me

At The Refined today a winner from a local contest was treated to a makeover.
It was a full manover.

He came in a super shy and reserved man but left absolutely glowing and so happy.

Honestly, it was such a sweet moment to witness so I had to catch some pictures of it.

It made me think of my father, after all today IS Father's Day.

This is the very last picture I took with my dad; it was over a year ago now.
Father's Day should be about celebrating your dad and spending time with him 
but I'm here and he's there, so I worked, worked, and worked some more.

Eight hours and 330 pages later... if only my dad could see what 
I'm doing here in the Philippines. 
Maybe he'd understand it, accept it, and perhaps even be proud of it.
