As you say Malaysia extended its Movement Control Order (MCO) from April 28th until 12th May. So the southern Thai border remains closed.

 

Under the MCO no foreign nationals can enter Malaysia except those with diplomatic passports, those who have Permanent Residence or those who are an “expatriate in an essential service”. Even then those that can enter are obliged to go into quarantine for 14 days at a centre designated by the government, and charged a minimum of RM150 per day for the privilege.

 

Whether they lift the restriction on May 12th or extend again is anyone's guess.

Much to my annoyance, there is a safe house for smuggled ciggys next to my place - Smuggling is still alive and well, they have been busy through the pandemic. I guess the demand for 10B poison sticks is quite high at the moment.

Up here in Ranode too, but no booze...sipping lao khaw now. Not bad; five liters for 350 baht. But I'm looking forward to some Waltons or JD...

Anyone knows from where and how this contraband arrives here?

Just curious because it's been around for many years irrespective of govts and crackdowns
