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.

Fight Day in QC

It was fight day for some of my teammates from Team Insider today so I jumped on an Angkas and headed all the way out to Quezon City.  Took me an hour and 15 minutes, yikes.

One of the fighters fighting out of my club was fighting Pac's son today.
Pac's son, Jimuel, won the fight.  I vouch that my teammate won regardless of the outcome.
He was flooded with media interviews after the fight, and before the fight too actually.
 Of course his opponent, Jimuel, was bombarded too.
Second fighter to fight from my boxing club today and our second loss for the day.
The boxers fought in a MMA cage today, a bit strange of course, but it was also because they had a some MMA fights too.  I wouldn't recommend boxing in a cage.  It's too big, too weird, and leaning your opponent against a cage vs the ring ropes in not the same thing.
