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.

Rained In... Saturday, June 9

Mother Nature was having an absolute hissy fit today; raining all day and totally not giving in to all us here in the Philippines wishing she'd stop.  Massive flooding in various places in the country and the crazy excessive rain has cleared the streets.  No one wants to go out in it, me included.

The more rain that comes down, the higher the Grab prices go up, and what is usually only 80Php to get to my boxing club, skyrocketed to 200Php when I tried to schedule one.  Forget that.  I can't afford Grab but I can't afford to get all my gear wet in the walk over.

No boxing for me today.

Stayed home and worked on Empowered.

In July, I'll be starting my BoxHIIT Sweat Sesh here in BGC and one in Poblacion.

In August, I'll be starting a small team training group at a condo here in BGC and I'll be launching an outreach program too, also in BGC.
