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.

Perhaps a Goodbye?!... Thursday, August 22

Am thinking about stopping this homepage of mine.  Originally it was for my family to keep in touch and feel connected to my life overseas but now I don't know if they even keep up with it.  My mom was the one who always read it and talked to my family about it but now she's gone.  

Moreover, things are too censored now.  They have to be. 

People went from first names to nicknames, really fast, but now all have nicknames and many are omitted.  They're omitted because of various reasons and so are many of my opinions, thoughts and even daily dealings.  

Everything gets screened.

This is no longer what it was originally meant to be and I no longer feel free to full express myself or digest my day via my writings here.  Now I run a business, I am a small business owner with several projects on the go including an outreach program that I don't want to jeapordaze but love to pieces.  And so I strain myself. 

I don't even follow any other bloggers anymore actually.

Do people still really blog?

I do Instagram, Facebook and I dabble a bit in Vlogging on YouTube.

But what about blogging?!  Who still reads this?
