Re: The Beer Thread

To return to the Malaysian beer situation. Having a pint in a pub in KL is really very expensive, about the equiv of 300b / pint. Much cheaper elsewhere in M, about 220. Although in what is an Islamic country, widely available.

Re: Govt to increase alcohol tax again

Thats reminds me of another reason why it's not for every pub, you have to know how to pour it from the Tap. Slowly, gently. let it settle then top it up. It can be a wait, but it's worth it.

Re: GBP vs THB

Does any poster have really serious plan to return to the UK if the baht gets below a certain level, say 40. I group of British guys that I know had this conversation some time ago and all agreed, below 45 and they are gone, but they are still all here.

Re: Govt to increase alcohol tax again

it is good that there are only a few places selling it. You need a fast turnover. Once the cask is tapped it needs to be sold in a couple of days otherwise the Guinness becomes less fresh and vibrant.

Re: GBP vs THB

Just a hint from the B of E that they "might consider" raising the prime the next time they review it, though not at the moment, is enough to make the pound rise quite considerably.

Re: Govt to increase alcohol tax again

To tourists a pint is cheaper than back home-- 170-220b in US and Canada and i hear about 160b in UK and tourists don't think too much about prices anyway.

Re: Ladyboy Bars

A few bars who have several girls to "entertain" their clientele also have a resident ladyboy. He/she is there to entertain those looking for that type of activity but also as a "Security" worker protecting the girls and they do this very well.
