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 Sweet Evening... Sunday, April 21

Thank you to my host with the most, a man I won't reveal here who he's a celebrity.  

I met him about two years ago and this past week I ran into him at The Refined.  In passing, he noted he was having a BBQ party tonight at his house.  I didn't think he was inviting me but more or less just telling me what he was up to.  But then yesterday he texted me, reminding me that he looks forward to seeing me at his BBQ.  

So I went. 

I'll be honest here, I didn't initially want to go.  That's my dad in me speaking, seriously.  I'm sooooo bad for getting out and socializing, seriously.  It's so bad.  And I catch myself too, complaining about wanting to stay home but knowing that I'll have a fun time once I'm there.  And that's exactly what happened tonight.  I had fun.  I had a lot of fun actually and I really should have brought my bathing suit.  

It was a small party, about 10 of us, and at one point one of the guys texted his buddy, telling them to come with ice cream, so a couple more showed up.

For dinner, they stacked the BBQ with lamb, pork and sausages.. it was so delish!!!

Note to self: get out more or else you're going to miss awesome memories like today.
