PILC living the Vida Loca at Havana Bar


Aye Caramba! Over 100 ladies from the Pattaya International Ladies Club crowded into the Holiday Inn’s Havana Bar in early March for the club’s monthly lunch. The bar, overlooking the beach, put on a wonderful buffet with a Cuban flavor, and vendors sold jewelry and other items to those present.

President Helle Rantsen welcomed members and guests to the luncheon, and made some general club announcements about upcoming events of interest, such as a Charity Concert at Tiffany’s in April, and a Family Fun Bowling Night.

In keeping with the Latin theme, Stephanie Moorehouse, from Steps and Rhythm Dance Studio, led a group of PILC ladies in a typical Zumba routine, and urged other members to get up and join in the fun. (For those of you who don’t know, Zumba is a dance fitness program that incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo and martial arts.) Everyone had a great time dancing and working up an appetite for lunch.

As usual at PILC events, a raffle was held with some great prizes and over 12,000 baht was raised to help fund the Club’s charitable endeavors.

The next PILC lunch will be held at the Siam Bay Shore, and it will have an Easter theme – Helle is bringing back chocolate Easter eggs from Denmark, and has urged everyone to wear an Easter bonnet to the lunch!
