Malaysia is predominantly Muslim and I've never had a problem buying a beer there (some over 8% alcohol content too) at any minimart up until 10pm I think.

But don't recall any outside advertising though.

Same in Indonesia..

Maybe they could also fine folks posting pics of motorcycles, since they kill 30-40 people each day.

True that!, hey, how about pictures of food, wonder how big the fine would be for that.

For those of us trying to give up drinking  , it can be torturous tp keep seeing alcoholic drinks popping up on social media .

I feel for you but you cannot block out the reality of alcohol being everywhere and that the majority of people drink moderately and talk about looking forward to a drink etc. ... same as advertising really . It's up to us , with a little help, to accept that ,while we don't begrudge others their tipple, we are not partaking today. There's no tomorrow with alcohol , it's just for today. All the best to you.

  Leo "Strong brew" you say , 5.1 % 

My choice of drink was the Tappers 6.5 % and once I'd drank all that from the shop, I would settle for a Cheers 6% and if that wasn't available , I would begrudgingly settle for a 5.5 % Chang.

   If none of those were available, I just wouldn't bother .

5.5 % was as low as I could go ................and dont even think about putting ice in my beer 

The "Strong Brew" is revolting. I bought one and could not finish it. Disgusting. The regular Leo is much better.

Rather odd that they keep upping the amount of alcohol while the government pulls in the opposite direction.

All advertisements in bars, if allowed to open must be taken down. 

Soon label's on alcohol will have to be plain white with the name of the drink in small print, they might consider putting ugly pictures on the labels like cigarette packets have. 

Meanwhile homemade kerosene requires no labels. 

Dr Singh and Mr Chiang will be so pleased. 

Why not pixel it out like they do everything else.

So, if you are having a good time in a bar with friends you can not post a photo. Are you sure Thailand wants more tourists?

 

They keep shooting themselves in the foot. One part of government is begging for tourists, another is saying if you come you can not relax and have fun and share it with your friends. This must be  Amazing Thailand!

 

Wake me when the joke is over.

 I hear the sandbox is tightening up, if you want to go elsewhere you have to be tracked, going into BK might not be allowed, as will be other areas according to the color zone. Bars and restaurants are closed  all over the country, most of  Phuket is boarded up, as is most of Thailand, if you catch Delta, as they say you now can whilst vaccinated( 2 more elderly residents from Summit rest Home admitted to hospital Sydney today, after contracting covid whilst vaccinated with Pfizer)  caught from an unvaccinated staff member. Source 9 news Sydney.

 

So the dangers of the sandbox will be, if you travel elsewhere, contract Delta then you have to go to hospital in Thailand, one thats not full already , then pay for quarantine when you eventually get home.

I think that possibly the only travelers will be expats trying to get beck in and a few that will try it anyway.

 

The likelihood that you will be able to travel around Thailand freely after 14 days looks grim I think it will require permission and details where and why you want to go and tracked all the way .

you think Thailand will it leaves have some plan for vaccinating them without price gouging amazing Thailand TIT

I am not sure at what price level I would resist, but below that and for around what I see the cost price at, I would be darned happy to shell out and pay. But even that capitalist avenue has been closed off by a bunch of dim witted fools at the top.

You sure?

You can buy alcohol between 11:00 and 14:00. That is exactly the lunch break time at schools!

   Its not just "a" billboard though is/was it , they seemed to be everywhere you looked .

  If you think that advertising has no effect on peoples choices , you would wonder why companies spend so much money on advertising their products , if it doesnt influence peoples choices of what they purchase 

Of course there is always the choice to not purchase. People make that choice every day on literally billions of products all over the globe. 

It's also a choice that governments cannot (yet) take away.

Governments everywhere should institute the policy of "everything not compulsory is forbidden ". That would eliminate all choice and everybody would benefit.

No?

  How would that policy be of any benefit to anyone ?

then nobody would face any challenging decisions of any kind. No stress over advertising, etc.
