The deputy Bangkok governor said the campaign has been successful thanks to the cooperation of many sectors, especially the private sector and members of the general public who helped promote the campaign.

Ah, the 'Buy early for Buddhist Lent' campaign !

what upsets me the most in life is some religions or sects want to impose on me what I should wear,

what should drink, eat, and other things which would be censured if mentioned here. 

But sometimes it comes with perks like multiple wives.

I wonder if the places that banned alcohol, by chance, coincide with places that are not used by tourists for their meals? Certainly when word gets out, I would expect the Western tourists will change their plans.

Now let’s issue certificates for corruption-free government departments during Buddhist lent. Let’s see how successful that is. Let’s see how easy it is to do something meaningful. 

They have already been issued,they issue them every year I'll leave it to you to guess how many have been issued to date!OK I'll give you a hint,it's less than one!
