They do things differently in...

...Thailand.

"Hundreds of people, including youth, demonstrated outside Thailand's Stock Exchange of Thailand on Monday to protest plans by Beer Chang company to list its shares on the market".

The protesters would seem to be temperance fanatics rather than Liverpool fans: "Many of the protesters were antialcohol activists and members of Buddhist organisations. Some carried banners reading, ``Stop encouraging drinking, oppose the listing of Thai Bev on the SET.'' Others showed pictures of victims of drunken driving.".

I do not recall our home grown rechabites acting up when SAB listed in these parts.

Anyway, I don't know about my readers, but nothing gives me a thirst quite like a share listing.

They do things differently in Vietnam, too. This is actually an 'Anti-Story' as the regs have been withdrawn for the time being owing to the controversy caused. Thai tv was in mirthful mode when it reported that "Ladies with small breasts will be stopped from riding the motorcycle in Vietnam". This was just the story for the morning's 'Pooying na Pooying', 'Ladies for Ladies' show whose four glamorous & talented [really] anchors found it amusing at the expense of the Viets. Your correspondent verified it with Viet lady work colleagues who are also in mirthful mode about it and who found him the website http://english.vietnamnet.vn/social/2008/10/810654/
which, you will note, also alludes to regs proscribing riding the motorcycle with heamorrhoids [the person, not the bike] plus height and weight restrictions.

Please note, the silly part is that, although clearly aimed at teenage girls, teenage boys are far more dangerous on bikes & this would have about 97% of Viet women off the road until they got a pair of socks under their normal, thick breast pads.

Written in haste - got to go to work, yrs Somchai, temp in Hanoi.

C: edit or spike this as you please, OM, it's quick and messy as it stands.
