Received this e-mail from AirAsia yesterday –
“Hat Yai, where the fun never stops 24/7! From bargain shopping, delectable food, stimulating nightlife, to the local Thai massage and reflexology. The REAL Thai experience awaits you in Hat Yai, where you get more value for your Baht.”
“And Scotch whisky that’s so cheap, you’ll burn your return ticket!”
Well i added the last line. Coz d same day, i got a pictorial email from Eddy about a Malaysian who was busted there for producing fake Scotch.
What an entrepreneur! Global Malaysian businessman. Like our famous bookies.
Respect. But then again, it’s also a brain drain to foreign lands. Rugi la.
Not sure of the authenticity. Regardless. Shit like dat is happening all d time everywhere. Fake booze is a serious problem, easily using recycled original bottles. Some bars n clubs serve dis shit to customers coz its dirt cheap for them.
I plan to talk to d liquor companies about this issue soon, and also on how we can reduce d problem.
In d meantime, here r some pictures of d bust in Hat Yai.
