    Greetings, Maidens & friends! I'm here in beautiful Pattaya, Thailand, for a business trip. It's very warm out here, but the place is an absolute paradise. For the next four days, I'll be checking out the local spots and maybe scout for a possible venue for the Maidens to perform. :kickass:

    Here are some views of Pattaya from my hotel room:

    Thailand is very serious about Buddhism, hence a large number of Buddha statues everywhere like this one.

    And look who's doing business here. Guess there's been a tuition hike at Hogwart's. :lol:

    It was too hot to go to the beach today, but I managed to take some shots of the scenery during my walk.

    All this walking on a hot sunny day's gotten me thirsty. Time for a break. Cheers!

    Tiger is actually a Singapore brand, but it's been my current favorite since last Christmas. I've had Singha before at a Thai restaurant in Hollywood, and it's pretty good.

    Thanks, Linda. Yes, this is my first trip here. I'll only be staying in Pattaya, but I hope to visit Bangkok in the near future.

    Here are pics of my hotel room. Not bad for 3,000 baht (roughly US$91) a night, huh?

    During my walk across town, I stopped by a beer garden located by the pier and took some more pics before I realized I was both hungry and thirsty. People from Britain know the dish on the last pic below. Bon appetit! :kickass:

    On Saturday, I took a boat to a remote island near Pattaya. So for those who haven't taken a boat ride yet, here are some pics:

    My last day in Thailand was on Monday. Before boarding my plane, I found more stuff to share to everyone:

    Right near my gate was a group of girls playing traditional music. Here's a sample of their performance:

    Hope you all enjoy the pics and video as much as I did taking them. I look forward to visiting this wonderful country again. Up the Irons! :headbang:

    I didn't get a chance to do much scouting, but I dropped by the Hard Rock Hotel & Cafe in Pattaya and told the manager to check out the Maidens website.
