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.

All Work and No Play

Got interviewed by the Manila Times about my company, Empowered, and you know I just had to get them to put their dukes up for a group shot!
 In the evening I attended a business networking event and I rocked a teddy.... a teddy bear phone case that is.  It's the party gift I got from the H&Moschino VIP Party last week.
 After the event was done, it was off to meet up for a quick meet & greet with some friends.
 Filipinos love their speak easy bars and tonight I visited another -- the Back Room.  I didn't stay for a drink, I didn't even stay long enough to sit down, instead I stayed long enough to agree that this is by far one of the coolest lounges to chillax at.  Plan is to return soon.
