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.

Rambles While I Wait... Tuesday, August 20

I returned to coaching two fighters that have been MIA and out of the Philippines and I returned looking like an animation from the movie "Avatar".  My face is just too weird to look at and not comment about, seriously.  Even I caught myself laughing at the sight of myself.   I'm not in pain though, never really was, and the doctor says this is to be expected because as my swelling moves down my face, different parts will change somewhat, until I'm no longer swollen that is. 

My stitches were pulled out today, by the doctor.  Not me.  Relax.

My doctor is optimistic that there will be no scar.  I'm pessimistic that there won't be. 

Is it so strange that I kind of hope there's a bit of a scar?  
Am I the only person that is into scars?

To me, scars tell stories and these stories are what makes life so great, so interesting. 

I've had my share of injuries but I don't really have any physical scars.  I guess I heal extra nice.
