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.

A Day Off People... Sunday, March 10

I took the day off today... well, it was more like a day off people that is.

I slept in till my body wanted to wake up, which was apparently 11:30am.
I didn't go to rugby and I canceled hitting the gym for weight training.
I did however go to church in the afternoon.

Some days I just need a break from everyone and I think that's what I needed today.  Because although I did do a lot of computer work with client files and dealing with my suppliers, my interaction with people was at an all-time low.  I only saw people at church and then briefly at The Refined, where I went to work on some upcoming stuff for Empowered.

Originally I was suppose to be in Baguio this week, for the filming of a Vlog with Teddy Sage, but with their host being sick and me having changed my coaching schedule for it, it meant this weekend I didn't have many to train.  It also meant today I had no one to train and no one tomorrow to train. 

My weekly goals for this week:

  1. Launch the new hand wraps by Slay for Empowered.
  2. Design, organize and finalize the new fundraiser item for the Lil' Sistas Project.
  3. House-hunt and visit at least one place.
  4. Freedom Day posts for the Voice of the Free.
  5. Finish and confirm my fighters' ring names.
  6. Film, edit and post my next vlog.
  7. Create the packagings for the new handwraps and post ads.
  8. Add Lil' Sistas "extras" to the Empowered website.
  9. Deal with the coaching tank tops at the seamstress and printers.
  10. Meeting regarding privacy issues for the Lil' Sistas Project.
