Why being single in Thailand is like admitting you pick your nose and eat it

It has always been an interesting topic for me because for the longest time I always had a boyfriend… then my personal life completely flipped to the other side where I had been single for the longest time and I was getting to an age that people were starting to question why I was still […]

Fight 20

Fight 20 came around quickly and saw me rematch WPMF and WWBA World Champion Farida. After an exciting first match up, the promoters at the Chalong Stadium were eager to have us back on their biggest show for the year. Naturally I welcomed the opportunity, although I would have liked a different match up in […]

Weight issues and the 5 day juice cleanse

I am someone who has always had issues with their self image.  Throughout my entire life, my weight and body shape has been extremely inconsistent for a variety of reasons, resulting in an warped self image.  When I look at photos of myself now, I catch myself staring in disbelief, sometimes thinking to myself, ‘that can’t […]

Fight 19

I remember last year, having a conversation with someone who said to me “you’ll end up fighting Farida one day” to which I responded with laughter. At the time, the thought of me fighting someone as skilled as Farida was something I was yet to consider. A few weeks ago, when the promoter from Chalong Stadium […]

Fight 18

Firstly.  A massive apology for the radio silence.  This last month of training and fighting has been quite full on, and to be honest, the mental struggle of dealing with my first string of losses has left me drilling myself into the ground at training to get better and to move forward.  I also realise […]

Moving on without moving

There is something to be said about changing gyms within a small province.  In my imagination, at the very least, if you were to change gyms somewhere bigger, say in Bangkok, the pressures that come with the move might not be as noticeable – but again – I could be totally wrong having never lived in […]

The Aussie Dictionary

After spending all year with people from across the globe, it has become quite clear to me (highlighted by every non Aussie I have met) that Aussies, absolutely, 100%, speak their own language. Obviously for me, this was not something I had really given much thought to until I had to explain the use of […]

Fight 16

This morning I woke up to devastating news that the footage to this fight has been deleted.  I will make an attempt to get the footage from the stadium but at this stage it is not looking good.  It was very disappointing and I should have trusted my gut and had a friend film it like my […]

Fight 15

Fight 15 marks the first fight for 2015 and also my first fight under AKA.  Needless to say, I was really wanting a good fight and a win for AKA, but like most fights, it was not without it’s obstacles.  It’s always tough swallowing a loss, but here it is. Training for this camp was severely […]

2014 – what a year!!!

After the craziest two months I’ve had in a long while, I am finally getting the opportunity to sit down and reflect on the year just passed.  While this is long overdue, it’s nice to look back on the year just passed and just in time for my first fight for 2015. On January 6, […]
