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 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, […]

The move to AKA

For those of you following my Facebook page, you will have heard that at the end of 2014, I bid a sad farewell to Sinbi Muay Thai. Unfortunately this was not a decision I made lightly, nor was it one where I really had much choice. It was with great disappointment that I learnt that at Sinbi […]

Fight 13

  All year I had been wanting to fight on a Sinbi Fight Night.  The first time I was supposed to fight on one, my opponent pulled out and every other time a fight night was on, I had a fight somewhere around that time already, or had fought too recently to be put in the […]

Fight 10

After damaging in intercostel in my last fight, I was forced to take some rest.  It’s true – it was my bodies way of telling me to rest.  I was so disappointed though, knowing that Caley Reece was coming back for a month and I was fearing I would miss the opportunity to train with her. […]
