‘Honorary’ Pattaya citizen Andrew Wood (who now spends weekdays in Bangkok) celebrated his ‘pre-birthday’ at Alois Restaurant and Wine Bar amongst his old Pattaya resident friends.
The passing of Alois Fassbind (Mr. Pattaya) was also remembered, as the date of the dinner was also the date of Alois Fassbind’s birthday. This made it more than just an ordinary dinner, as the group also celebrated Andrew’s recovery from a serious accident four months ago.
The convivial table included (front row l-r) Ingo Raeuber, Andrew Wood, Corrie Bik, Pichai Visutriratana and Som Corness. (Standing l-r) Mae Mahaphaisan, Natthakarn Sinprasom, Peter Malhotra and Dr. Iain Corness.
(L to R) Peter proposes a toast as Veerapong, Vichai and Paiboon, the faithful trio stand before photographs of their mentors Louis and Bruno. A glass of Louis’ favourite wine was placed in front of his portrait.
