Long-time Pattaya City Expats Club member David Rubenstein celebrated his birthday with more than 30 club members and a sky full of fireworks.
Former club president Richard Smith and his wife Janet organized the Nov. 29 soiree at the 24th floor condominium at the Mark Land Beach View in North Pattaya he has shared with his wife Alex for the past quarter-century.
David Rubenstein and his lovely wife Alex host members of the Pattaya City Expats Club for David’s 75th birthday party.
The spacious end unit afforded all the gusts a three-sided panorama view of the Pattaya International Fireworks Festival staged that night.
There was a buffet of food and beverages set up in the living room for guests to enjoy while viewing the fireworks. And of course guests brought a birthday cake.
Rubenstein said he loves Thailand and all its rich culture and traditions.
“I think it is a rare culture, but as the country develops, society and culture are gradually changing,” he noted. “In Pattaya, where many westerners live, Thai people gradually merge into western culture, while also maintaining their Thai culture. However, I still love Thailand and like to stay in Pattaya.”
Rubenstein said he bought his condo 25 years ago and appreciates HM the King and the government for allowing him to live here so long. He had many friends in the Expats Club and loves to be near the sea.
“This place is very suitable for us,” he said. “I am very proud to be here.”
