The guest speaker this Sunday at the Pattaya City Expats
Club is Dr. Anna, a dermatologist from Bangkok-Pattaya Hospital. She

all grow older skin is the one thing that shows the aging process and no doubt
we are all vain enough to be happy to take on board tips to try and redress
the balance. Pattaya City Expats Club meets at Henry J. Bean’s in the Amari
