had a fab time, although the whole family caught this sickness bug and we were wiped out for 3 days, so i ended up extending my stay for a few days longer which was great as i got to spend some quality time with my family...
so since i've been back it's been work work work..
and of course party party party!!
we've had some fab students out here with us and as a result we've had some mad nights out...
a mad all nighter resulted in returning to fairtex at 7:30am.. PHOTO_ID_L=all_nighter_050.jpg
and if it hadn't been for some of the trainers making us come back cos we had work i think we would have stayed out the whole next day too!
and then the all nighters was closely followed by a 5:30am session the following week..!!
so it's been madness and fun and i've been enjoying some partying and taking the training easy.. PHOTO_ID_R=another_mad_night_031.jpg
PHOTO_ID_L=feb_066.jpg i went to a local crocodile park for the first time since being here (it's only 5 mins away and i've been here a year and never been!).. so one of the students (Emmet) and i went for the day.. had our pics taken with crocs, tigers, elephants etc.. fed some crocodiles with whole dead chickens etc.. !! had a fun day, attached some pics for you...

on the way home Emmet and I got caught in a mad rain downpour.
Was asked to fight in chang mai (north thailand) at the end of this month at our new Fairtex Stadium up there, but then we realised girls still cannot fight up in Chang mai (old traditional thailand rules - no girls allowed to fight or even to step into the ring) so i couldn't do it.. bummer as i wanted a free trip to chang mai! haha
so instead of training hard i'm enjoying some fun time..
Suzanne and I had to pose for a magazine photoshoot for a sports magazine promoting Fairtex.. some amusing pics attached... PHOTO_ID_L=mag_shoot_013.jpg
PHOTO_ID_L=mag_shoot_032.jpg they did us up in so much make up we looked crazy!! and suzanne never wears any make up so it was especially weird to see here all dolled up!
PHOTO_ID_R=mag_shoot_024.jpg &n bsp; but we'll get a copy of the magazine and the professional shots when they finish the article (the pics attached were our homemade ones took by a girl from the office as she followed us round for the shoot).
we also had to do a muaythai demo at a new bowling alley thats just opened... i had to be the MC while the trainers did the demo...
and other than that there's not much been going on..
However... I am going to to Singapore next month for a 3 day trip!!! Our fighters took part in a Muaythai version of Sugar Ray Leanords boxing 'Contender' TV program and the final is going to be live in Singapore on 12th april so i'm going over to see it!! and will get to see singapore at the same time so i can't wait..
So next time i write at least i'll have news and pics from somewhere other than thailand!
My friends from hongkong are back here at Fairtex next week so i will also get my trip to hongkong sorted out for sometime in the next month or so...
Well thats all - short and brief this time but just wanted to keep in contact with you all..
Will be back next month with news from singapore!!
Take care and write soon
