(US$11,110,000) (the "Principal Amount") on the Maturity Date (as defined
below), together with accrued and unpaid interest through and including
such date as herein provided at a rate per annum of 6%, compounded

Date. This Convertible Note is issued in connection with the transactions
described in that certain Note Purchase Agreement, dated as of the date
hereof, between Obligor and Holder (the "Purchase Agreement"). Interest
shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve
30-day months for the actual number of days elapsed.

1.          Maturity Date.

            The then outstanding Principal Amount, together with accrued
and unpaid interest thereon as set forth above (subject to Section 7),
shall become due and payable on the fifth anniversary of the Issue Date
(the "Maturity Date").

2.          Acceleration.

            Notwithstanding any provision hereof to the contrary, the
obligations of Obligor hereunder shall forthwith mature and immediately
accelerate and shall be immediately due and payable on the Default Date (as
hereinafter defined) in the event that (i) the business of Obligor is
discontinued, sold, liquidated or otherwise disposed of, whether by
liquidation or dissolution, or (ii) Obligor shall take, or intends to take,
or, as far as Obligor is aware, any other person shall receive a judgment,
order or decree from a court of competent jurisdiction, in each case, for
the Obligor's winding up, liquidation, dissolution, merger or consolidation
that is not pursuant to an agreement between Obligor and Holder, or for the
appointment of a receiver in relation to any or all of Obligor's assets, or
Obligor shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts as they
become due or shall commit any other act of insolvency (each a "Default
Event"). The date on which any Default Event occurs is referred to herein
as the "Default Date."

3.          No Prepayments.

            Neither the Principal Amount nor any interest accrued on this
Convertible Note may be prepaid by Obligor, except as provided in Section 7.

4.          Method of Payment.

            Obligor shall pay all amounts payable under this Convertible
Note in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account
designated by Holder or, if no account has been designated, by certified
check delivered to Holder at such place as Holder shall designate to
Obligor in writing.

5.          Presentment Waived.

            Obligor hereby expressly waives presentment for payment,
demand, notice of dishonor, protest and notice of protest. Acceptance by
Holder of any payment that is less than the full amount then due and owing
hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of Holder's right to receive
payment in full at such time or at any prior or subsequent time.

6.          Subordination.

            Prior to the Maturity Date, except for the obligations of
Obligor upon any conversion of the Principal Amount in accordance with the
terms of this Convertible Note, all indebtedness evidenced by this
Convertible Note (the "Subordinated Indebtedness") shall be subordinated to
all other indebtedness of Obligor, whether existing as of the Issue Date or
incurred at any time after the Issue Date (the "Senior Indebtedness"), and
in that connection, prior to the Maturity Date, except for the obligations
of Obligor upon any conversion of the Principal Amount in accordance with
the terms of this Convertible Note:

(a) the payment of the Subordinated Indebtedness shall be subordinated to
all and any rights, claims and actions which any other person may now or
hereafter have against Obligor in respect of the Senior Indebtedness;

(b) the Subordinated Indebtedness shall not become capable of being subject
to any right of set-off or counterclaim; and

(c) except upon the Maturity Date, upon the acceleration pursuant to
Section 2, or upon the conversion of the Principal Amount in accordance
with the terms of this Convertible Note, Holder shall not claim, request,
demand, sue for, take or receive (whether by way of set-off or in any other
manner and whether from Obligor or any other person) any money or other
property in respect of the Subordinated Indebtedness or any part thereof.

7.          Conversion Rights.

(a) Optional Conversion. At any time prior to the Maturity Date, at the
option of Holder in its sole discretion, all or any portion of the then
outstanding Principal Amount of this Convertible Note may be converted (an
"Optional Conversion") into a number of Shares (the "Optional Conversion
Shares") equal to the amount of the then outstanding Principal Amount to be
converted divided by the Conversion Price. Notwithstanding the foregoing,
Holder shall be entitled to a total of three (3) Optional Conversions, each
in an amount of not less than $3,000,000.

            In order to exercise the right of Optional Conversion, Holder
shall surrender this Convertible Note at the principal office of Obligor
and shall give written notice of such exercise, substantially in the form
of Exhibit A attached hereto (the "Optional Conversion Notice"), to Obligor
at such office. Such Optional Conversion shall be deemed to have been
effected at the close of business on the date on which such Optional
Conversion Notice, duly completed and executed, shall have been given as
aforesaid, and, subject to the last sentence of this Section 7(a), at such
time such portion of the Principal Amount as is subject to such Optional
Conversion shall be applied by Obligor in full payment of the Optional
Conversion Shares to be issued in consequence of the Conversion and that
application shall discharge Obligor from all liability in respect of such
portion of the Principal Amount converted, and Holder shall be deemed for
all purposes to have become the holder of the Optional Conversion Shares.

            As promptly as practicable, but in no event later than seven
(7) Business Days, after an Optional Conversion, Obligor, at its expense,
shall cause (i) the Optional Conversion Notice presented by Holder to
Obligor, and any other documents necessary for such Optional Conversion to
be effected, to be stamped by the office of the Inland Revenue Department
and as appropriate under the laws of the Cayman Islands, (ii) Holder's name
to be entered in the register of the members of Obligor in respect of the
Optional Conversion Shares, (iii) to be paid to Holder all accrued and
unpaid interest through and including the date of the Optional Conversion
on that portion of the Principal Amount subject to such Optional Conversion
and (iv) to be delivered to Holder a convertible note, in form and
substance identical to this Convertible Note, for the remaining outstanding
Principal Amount if such Optional Conversion was not for the entire portion
of the then outstanding Principal Amount. Notwithstanding any provision of
this Convertible Note to the contrary, no Optional Conversion shall be
deemed to have occurred unless and until Obligor shall have complied with
the obligations set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, whereupon
such Optional Conversion shall be deemed to have been effective as of the
date the Optional Conversion Notice is given to Obligor; provided, however,
that no failure by Obligor to so comply with such obligations shall
prohibit Holder from exercising its rights as the holder of the Optional
Conversion Shares.

(b) Mandatory Conversion. Immediately prior to consummation of the Initial
Public Offering, the entire then outstanding Principal Amount of this
Convertible Note shall be automatically converted (the "Mandatory
Conversion" and, together with any Optional Conversion, a "Conversion")
into a number of Shares (the "Mandatory Conversion Shares" and, together
with the Optional Conversion Shares, "Conversion Shares") equal to the then
outstanding Principal Amount divided by the Conversion Price.

            The Mandatory Conversion shall be effected by Obligor applying
the entire then outstanding Principal Amount of this Convertible Note in
full payment of the Mandatory Conversion Shares to be issued in consequence
of the conversion and that application shall discharge Obligor from all
liability in respect of the entire then outstanding Principal Amount of
this Convertible Note.

            As promptly as practicable, but in no event later than seven
(7) Business Days, after a Mandatory Conversion, Obligor, at its expense,
shall cause (i) the Mandatory Conversion Notice presented by Holder to
Obligor, and any other documents necessary for such Mandatory Conversion to
be effected, to be stamped by the office of the Inland Revenue Department
and as appropriate under the laws of the Cayman Islands, (ii) Holder's name
to be entered in the register of the members of Obligor in respect of the
Mandatory Conversion Shares and (iii) to be paid to Holder all accrued and
unpaid interest through and including the date of the Mandatory Conversion
on that portion of the Principal Amount subject to such Mandatory
Conversion. Notwithstanding any provision of this Convertible Note to the
contrary, no Mandatory Conversion shall be deemed to have occurred unless
and until Obligor shall have complied with the obligations set forth in the
immediately preceding sentence, whereupon such Mandatory Conversion shall
be deemed to have been effective as of the date of the Initial Public
Offering; provided, however, that no failure by Obligor to so comply with
such obligations shall prohibit Holder from exercising its rights as the
holder of the Mandatory Conversion Shares.

8.          Anti-Dilution Provisions.

            The Conversion Price shall be subject to appropriate adjustment
so as to protect the rights of Holder upon the occurrence on or after the
Issue Date and prior to the Initial Public Offering of any stock dividend,
stock split, reverse stock split, recapitalization, reclassification,
merger, combination, consolidation or other similar transaction. Upon each
occurrence of any event described in the immediately preceding sentence,
the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such event shall be
adjusted (and any other appropriate actions shall be taken by Obligor,
including, upon the occurrence of any merger, combination, consolidation or
other similar transaction, the issuance to Holder of any securities into
which this Convertible Note shall be converted by operation of law or
pursuant to the express terms of such transaction provided that such
transaction has been approved by the Board of Obligor, which approval shall
include the affirmative vote of at least one PCLN Director and one TH
Director), so that Holder, upon any Conversion, shall be entitled to
receive the number of Shares or other property, including cash or
securities, that Holder would have owned or would have been entitled to
receive upon or by reason of any of the events described above, had this
Convertible Note been converted immediately prior to the date of such
event, or if such event has a record date, then the record date applicable
to such event. An adjustment made pursuant to the immediately preceding
sentence shall become effective retroactively to the close of business on
the day upon which such event is effected.

9.          Certain Approvals.

            Prior to the Initial Public Offering, in addition to any
approval required under applicable law or under Section 3.07 of the
Securityholders' Agreement, the prior approval of the Holder of the
Convertible Note shall be required for Obligor to:

                  substantially all of the stock of, any Person or
                  (ii) purchase, or agree to purchase, all or
                  substantially all of the assets and properties
                  of, or otherwise acquire, or agree to acquire,
                  all or any portion of, any Person, in each case
                  with respect to this clause (ii), having a value
                  in excess of US$250,000, including assets and
                  assumed liabilities;

(b)                     sell all or substantially all of the assets
                  and properties of Obligor;

                  recapitalization or reorganization of Obligor, or
                  any stock split or reverse stock split, or, in
                  each case, obligate itself to do so;

(d)                     amend or propose to amend the
                  organizational documents of Obligor;

(e)               issue any Ordinary Shares, or securities exercisable or
                  exchangeable for, or convertible into, Ordinary Shares,

                  exchange or conversion price per Ordinary Share) in an
                  amount less than the Conversion Price; or

(f)               adopt or amend any equity incentive plan for directors,
                  officers or employees, including the Option Plan, to
                  permit the grant of, or otherwise grant, options or any
                  other rights to acquire Ordinary Shares in excess of the
