Love driving here compared to Aus, relaxed drink driving enforcement and very relaxed speeding enforcement, yes I do average 8 to 10 speeding tickets a month but they are chump change compared to the same in Aus (180km/h in a 120 zone is only bt.500.00 !!).

Then there is the give no farks attitude one can drive with if feeling like a spirited run, nothing bring a bigger smile to my face than carving the evening traffic on the 7 motorway coming home from work, then there's some roll racing on Friday and Saturday nights in high performance cars...

Your support law breakers ?

 

Why are you on such a high horse about advertising beer when you openly and deliberately admit to breaking the laws on speeding.

 

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Unlike you I don't need to break the law so I have no consequence to pay.

Too many people are diversifying their drinking habits from Singha and Chang.  This will not be tolerated

You have somewhat of a point there....  As far fetched as it may seem, it is not completely inconceivable that ‘someone’ gets pulled up under the ‘computer crimes act’ for posting photos of beer...  We’ve seen worse. 

 

 

I know, very far fetched, but we live in a country where people (elders) are jailed under drugs offences for forging for mushrooms. Parents are Jailed for replying to a post with a simple ‘yes’ under lesse Majesty Laws.

(actually released by royal pardon after serving 18months).

 

 

 

If you dive deeper in the whole story you will find out that the couple also cut illegally many trees in a forest. They didn´t get the 5 years fine only for the mushrooms.

Police arrested the chef, named Boy, and fined him Bt50,000 for the beer promotion.

I'll bet there was a little ceremony for the counting of the 50k baht.  Times are tight even for the BiB.

There's a difference between a restaurant illegally promoting an alcoholic drink, beer, and a brewery legally advertising it's bottled water.  It's not a loophole in the law.

But they are not advertising water.  They are advertising their brand.  A brand associated with alcohol. They use water as an excuse.  There is no water in the picture.

I personally think Singha Water taste better than Chang.... both their alcoholic beverages are rancid though and should  be avoided.

Call it what you like , although its illegal to advertise alcohol , beer companies advertise their beer  products by adding the words "mineral" in small letters .

  Were Chang/Leo allowed to get away with it or did the Gov stop them ?
