Pattaya Blatt Editor Elfi Seitz celebrated her birthday 12 September at one of her favorite haunts, the Thai Garden Resort.

The party, organized by pals Gerrit and Anselma Niehaus, owners of the hotel, was attended by around 20 of her closest friends, including German MP Juergen Koppelin.

Gerrit Niehaus and hotel General Manager Rene Pisters regrettably could not attend, so Anselma took on the role of host and was as caring and charming as ever.

Juergen made a most profound birthday speech while everyone enjoyed the renowned Thai Garden buffet and imbibed in an abundance of superb wine.

Elfi said she was thankful the number of candles on her cake didn’t equal her age, which she kept secret, and thanked everyone for attending.

Happy Birthday Elfi. We wish you excellent health and unbounded happiness.
