Plan to ban alcohol on Thai New Year

Recommended Posts

Another rule so the police can relax and not police-this will make no difference.  Why can’t they do their jobs 365 days a year?  Laziness and corruption rule the day 🙄

One giant shopping center with a single party system running the show. 

Didn't go in a shopping centre but found a street of bars with a German bar that sold excellent Flammkuchen and the best Erdinger outside Germany. What more could a man want? Found it on my first day in Singapore when I was eating in a street restaurant, in Chinatown, and a 19 year old fatty sidled up to me and asked if she could share my room for the princely sum of 5SGD.

 

IME Singapore is party central.

Yes, the nation's toilet has the orgy of idiocy running better part of two weeks. This is one day. Zero impact.

 

They'll just add two more days on at the end. Why not, it already has absolutely nothing to do with Buddhist tradition.

 

I bet everyone drawn to that dump a second time during the holiday period has an IQ below 90. It's so absolutely stupid.

You must visit a lot to be able to give such a well-informed and detailed opinion. Why?

But that's why we love it here so much, isn't it ?

Brings back memories of their short-lived ban on the selling of fuel between (something like) 01:00 and 06:00 some time ago, as this would cut fuel imports. Of course, everyone just made sure they had full tanks before 01:00. Logic and forward thinking simply do not exist here.

Watch this space......... they've gone just about as far as they can get away with on smoking - drinking is next. Same in the UK - you'll all be going to church on Sundays again soon 😀.

What about one of these:-

This old chestnut surfaces every year just before Songkran, usually closer to Songkran when it is too late to implement it. If they mean to do it why dont they start to work on it's implementation for the following year right after Songkran?

But then they would have to form a new committee every month to change the decision that the committee had made the previous month.

Actually,not a bad idea,it would certainly bring road deaths down to zero,what a 'boaster' for the tourist trade people,and government,probably be made up for the next day,no need to mention that though.

Why not just drastically increase the price on that day?

 

Oops, me and my mouth - what have I said? Where's that stick?
