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.

The King is Alive... Sunday, November 11

In Korea, today was Peppero Day. 
In Canada, today was Remembrance Day.
In the Philippines, today was the day I met Elvis.

Okay, so maybe it wasn't the real Elvis, but he sounded just like him and perhaps he was even nicer than the original.  Turns out Elvis is Filipino, speaks Tagalog and enough English to get on by, he lives here in the Philippines, wears makeup, and he knows exactly how to make the Filipino crowd go wild!  Oh, and I saw him eat pretty much his bodyweight in brownies so I guess it's safe to say he also has quite the sweet tooth.
