Exceptional work fellas... just got it yesterday, along with the back-issues I ordered, and the progress/improvements period-to-period are markedly apparent. Bravo, and well worth the price of admission.

Cheers... Brian

Jam up good job Waqas!  Very professional and well put together issue. 
The photography, the stories, the editing, the quality, is all top notch!

Nice work.  I know of one vendor who would have liked to have advertised in it.

Issue 11 is by far the best of all the issues.  We, as a group, are really moving in the right direction.  Again well done.

Clearly us overseas members are dying in anticipation.... but I'm pleased to see the responses... If this issue is so exciting, please realise that it, like most things around here is put together by a small but merry band of volunteers. So get your quill, pen or laptop out, and write an article too! Put your sketch-pad, SLR-camera or digital snapper to good use. Produce some content for the next issue of Pagoda Notes, Pagoda World or the Technical Manual. Don't be shy!

Waqas,

the issue just arrived today by mail... and excellent it is indeed. Also thanks to the article writers, and to Waqas for putting in all the hours, and pulling it together. Photography is great too...

Let's hope we can issue the next PW within about 8 months or so!

Received the latest issue (11th allready) in the mailbox yesterday. Congrats to all contributors for the nice articles. Printing quality is very high if you compare with the first issues. My collection starts with issue 4, 2004. Maybe there's a way to obtain the first 3 missing Peter?
Regards to you all,
