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.

Christmas in the Sun

Today was the day of the big Mavericks rugby Christmas party and damnnnnnnnnn, what a turn out!
I had a special guest, a boy bud of mine, show up with a special gift for me -- a new mouthguard!!! 
Us rookies on the Lady Mavericks had to perform a dance number.  We weren't exactly prepared for it but the crowd seemed to enjoy it and it was fun for building team spirit.
From the field to the boxing club, with a nap in between, I headed off to training.
The before and after of my boxing.
Notice the gym nastiness of my sweater and how it went from sunny out to dark.
This time next week I'll be all butterflies and jitters, till then, I'm anxious and excited.

Coach Marcelo wasn't there tonight.  He only coaches till 3pm, so I worked with Coach RP.
