    Troy, was it you or another air travel expert who posted that cargo flights were still airborne?

    I am guessing that few Asian countries are self sufficient in popular foodstuffs. How else can supermarkets restock their shelves?

    I can survive on baked beans, Smirnoff and home made bread, but I’m not sure about the long term consequences for my digestive system.

    Thai province bans alcohol sale to curb spread of coronavirus | The Star Online
    From my understanding it makes more sense to encourage large gatherings with huge amounts of alcohol which they spray each other; consumer spending goes up, people get their Songkran, have lots of fun, kids can join in, no embarrassing road death tolls, and the virus get outed.

    Too obvious, they'll never think of it!

    Still openly selling alcohol on the Darkside in Pattaya.

    7Eleven are selling as well but with time restrictions.

    Just back from the southern district of Bangkok, Samut Prakarn actually and business as usual as far as I could see.

    Heaps of traffic, the locals out and about mostly wearing masks and most of the shops open for trading.

    Even the council were out digging up Srinakarin Road which they have been doing for years.

    Pretty much a normal Thursday working day for me.

    Walked into Topps today and bought up some Rum and Gin to make Long Islands. No issues at all.

    Those requiring a top up to their alcohol stash?

    Lots more cars with Bangkok plates around. None appear to have bothered to self isolate. It is going to take its toll soon.
