Thai Restaurant

Found a new restaurant with entertainment while eating great Thai food. (ok I dated these wrong-they from a dinner on 10/30-oh well!) Here are a couple of the things we saw (we will go back again to get all the pictures) Getting better with the camera and fire shows!

Still learning

I haven't gone farther in my photo class till I feel I mastered the part I just learned. Well with all the rain we are getting during the day its been giving me some good practice. I really need to get a zoom lens! (Troy KNOWS thats what I want for Christmas this year).

I got some raindrop shots....
And trying to get a drip off the end of a leaf is pretty hard! I took 52 pictures and I got TWO drops in the pictures....I like the second one the best!
And a wet leaf look...

So every day I try to take a photo of something in my life. Well after a long Friday and Saturday night partying I didn't do much today on Sunday. So Troy decided he would take a picture of something I did during the day---well most of the day......tried to sleep through my hang over. Thanks honey! LOL And no I don't normally sleep with a bear...that was a gift from troy about a month ago.

Sharks A Go-Go

Well Saturday night so you know I am out on the town again. One of the go-go's down on walking street called Sharks...
This is "mamasan" (the women who is in charge of the working girls). Every go-go has one.

Another Firday Night.

Some of the Rayong crew came up to hang out in Pattaya tonight so I decided to join them! Here is one of me and my AngelWitch Boys. (What do you think of the pigtails?!)
The Living Dolls Go-Go is now one of my favorites! It, like AngelWitch, has actual shows/performances by the girls! One here that was pretty cool was the dancers came out in blacklight glow paint outfits and danced. I got some ink work done also, this is the best shot (its hard to get a picture of something glowing under a blacklight I learned).
Dan with a random Lemar on walking street (yes they are everywhere!)
Tom with his favorite sign inside of Hooty's Go-Go.

The Original

The reason Pattaya is famous is because back during the Vietnam conflict/after our boys would take R&R's here. Why here? Well there was this little place called the Tahitian Queen Rock n' Roll Bar that was a strip club with the chance to buy the girls for some extra services plus American bar food and some good old Rock n' Roll. That club spawned many others and now we have walking street (the highest "working girl" per population in the world!). So here is the original club-

With all the rain we have gotten the last couple days our hotel pond has gotten higher. The flowers that were on the lily pads however took a beating and don't look that nice now.

Also I'm still trying to play with my shutter speed and ISO combos on my camera-so here are a couple water effects with it. I think I am getting it down and may take the next weeks course soon!

Before and After

Went to the hair salon today. For the first time ever I let somewhere overseas dye my hair. I asked for a little light blond (and pointed to my roots). One of the guys said "playboy Blonde" so I was like "sure". Well think Kendra not Bridget LOL and thats what I got.....Also Salley went with me and got 6 inches cut off and she got her hair dyed a black/blue color--which doesn't show up well in photos...

The thing Ronald is doing with his hand is how they say hello and goodbye (its like our wave). Sawatdee Khrab is hello for the males, and Sawatdee Khraa is hello for the females. Sounds like -swa-de-ca but with your nose plugged!

Also note the new shrimp sandwich advertisement!
