  1. TL;DR - A man was caught driving under the influence (DUI) into Malaysia as his breathalyzer test exceeded the maximum alcohol limit for drink driving. Ever since the borders between Singapore and Malaysia reopened, there have been many incidents reported of Singaporeans getting up to mischief and/or displaying erratic behaviors. Here is just one of the many examples: One good egg does not make a dozen but one bad apple can spoil a barrel. What happened? A man was caught by the Malaysian police for drink driving into Malaysia. Netizens managed to ‘suss out’ and found that this man is a Singaporean as he was driving a SG-registered car (based on his car plate and in-vehicle unit). Under SG law, if you are convicted of drink driving, you can be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to a year for first-timers. Repeat offenders can be fined up to $20,000 and jailed for up to two years. Under Malaysia law, a person convicted of driving or attempting to drive whilst their alcohol level exceeds the prescribed limit, shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a maximum of 2 years and a fine of at least RM10,000 and not more than RM30,000. Upon conviction, the driver shall be disqualified from holding a driver’s license for at least two years. It is unclear which country would press charges against him, but either way, it's bad. Let’s hear from the netizens ‘Orbiquek’... (Singlish ver. of serves you right) Kudos to Malaysia's PDRM (a.k.a traffic police) for being so vigilant and arresting the man before he could cause any accident. Takeaway Remember to always make good decisions and plan ahead - if you know you're going to drink, don't drive! Drink and drive is a deadly mix - keep yourself and others around you safe. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  2. Local actor Edwin Goh fined S$6,500 for drink driving, banned from driving for 3 years https://www.channelnewsasia.com/singapore/actor-edwin-goh-charged-drink-driving-3005401 another one ...
  3. I know nobody cares about Mediacorp dramas and actors though the Star Awards 2021 thread prove otherwise but let this serve as a reminder to everyone here about the dangers of drink driving and for those already convicted once for drink driving, how easy it is for one to reoffend again. Drink and drive, pay the price. Just wondering why in Shane's charge sheet (If found guilty again, he would be a repeat offender and face a driving ban of at least five years.), why wasn't a jail term mentioned?

Vietnam is Southeast Asia's largest consumer of beer. © Reuters JUNYA HENMI, TOMOYA ONISHI and YUICHI SHIGA, Nikkei staff writersJune 28, 2022 07:12 JST TOKYO/HANOI/MANILA -- From Thailand to the Philippines, more drinkers across Southeast Asia are turning to less-potent beverages and even alcohol-free versions of their favorite drinks so that they can avoid the throbbing headaches and other unpleasantness that follows an evening of overindulgence. Suntory Holdings begins producing its Horoyoi canned cocktail in Thailand on Tuesday through local unit Thai Spirit Industry. The drink, which is also popular in Japan, contains 3% alcohol. Suntory previously imported the beverage from Japan. It plans initially to produce 10,000 cases in Thailand, in grape and peach flavors. "People have different tastes depending on the local climate and food, so thorough localization is key," said Makoto Kitaura, a marketing manager at Suntory Spirits. Suntory also produces Horoyoi in Australia. The Japanese company hopes to speed development of new beverages and flavors by producing them where they are sold, so it can better navigate the ready-to-drink industry's notoriously short product cycles. Thailand's ready-to-drink alcohol market, now dominated by wine coolers, will grow more than 20% between 2021 and 2026 to 8.53 million cases, the U.K.-based IWSR predicts. In Vietnam, Sapporo Breweries began selling a lower-alcohol version of its Premium Beer last month. Sapporo Premium Beer 100 contains 3.5% alcohol, 1.5 points less than the original. It is made from 100% malt and priced nearly 20% higher, at 19,900 dong (86 cents) per 330-milliliter can. Low-alcohol beverages are capturing more interest in Vietnam, the region's largest consumer of beer. "I try to drink beer with a lower alcohol content when I have important work commitments the next day," said Nguyen Manh Hoang in Hanoi. The 35-year-old said he also was paying more attention to his health. The alcohol-free Heineken 0.0 reached Vietnamese store shelves in 2020. Local players like Saigon Beer Alcohol Beverage, or Sabeco, also are making inroads into the field. "Nonalcoholic beer is very popular, and we're currently sold out of Heineken," said a representative at a major supermarket in Hanoi.

(Photo by Tomoya Onishi) Low-alcohol beverages are gaining ground in the Philippines as well, despite liquor being available for relatively cheap. San Miguel Brewery, the country's largest producer of beer, now sells fruit-flavored beers and sugar-free hard seltzer ranging from 3% to 5% alcohol, as well as the nonalcoholic San Miguel 0.0 lager. The growing demand for such beverages stems from diversifying tastes in Southeast Asia, as economic growth and rising incomes push consumers to branch out beyond beer to wine, cocktails and other beverages. The coronavirus pandemic also made consumers more health-conscious. A 2022 survey by Euromonitor International found that 12.2% of baby boomers in the Asia-Pacific drink almost daily, while only 6.3% of millennials said the same. When asked why they were cutting back, 51.4% of respondents said it was for their health. Despite its bright outlook, Southeast Asia's no- and low-alcohol market was hit hard by the coronavirus restrictions. Sales in the region's eight main countries totaled 24,800 kiloliters in 2021, shrinking 11% from 2019, according to Euromonitor. "People dine out often in Southeast Asia, so demand for drinking at home is not as strong as in Japan," said an official at a Japanese company. "With people eating out less frequently amid the pandemic, opportunities to buy no- or low-alcohol beverages decreased." Japan's Suntory Holdings starts producing the Horoyoi canned cocktail in Thailand this week through a local unit. (Photo by Junya Henmi) Stronger regulations add to the uncertainty about a full recovery in earnings at liquor companies. Vietnam, for example, introduced tougher penalties for drunken driving in January 2020. The alcohol industry also faces investors focused more on environmental, social and corporate governance factors. Those in Asia, many of whom are younger, pay particularly close attention to ESG. A poll by The Economist shows that about 70% of young investors in Singapore and China emphasize ESG, far above the roughly 40% for their counterparts in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. With promoting good health and well-being listed as one of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals, beer and liquor producers feel pressured to demonstrate that their operations are ethical, including through expanding no- and low-alcohol offerings. Alcohol-free options are also key for beverage companies to expand their footprint, especially with Muslim-majority countries accounting for about half of Southeast Asia's population of over 600 million. Alcohol consumption is prohibited under Islam. Low-alcohol products are not the silver bullet, however. They still carry the risk of being blamed for lowering the barrier for alcohol consumption.
  5. If u have friends that drink and drive/drive without license or even both, what would u do? Considering that words have fallen on deaf ears, family members are well aware but nth can be done to stop do nth n continue to let ur friend drink n drive hope he kana caught but one day if he drink n drive n kill some innocent guy on the road can u live with the guilt? or be decisive n report him to the police for his own good? those who choose to drink n drive, drive w/o license n kana caught deserve no pity from anyone A police spokesman added: "A 52-year-old male car driver had fled the scene and was subsequently arrested along Canberra Road on the same day for suspected drug-related and traffic-related offences including dangerous driving, driving without a valid licence and taking of motor vehicle without owner's consent."

  7. SINGAPORE: A serial prank caller who repeatedly made nuisance calls to the police – despite being jailed for the same offence previously – was sentenced to three years' jail on Thursday (Sep 6). Gurcharan Singh, a 61-year-old cleaner, usually made the 999 calls after drinking alcohol, the court heard. The latest incidents occurred over two days in June this year, with Singh making two calls on the first day and 15 on the second. On Jun 10, Singh called the police using a public phone at a void deck in Chai Chee. As the operator could not hear what he was saying, he asked him to call back with another phone. Singh then told the operator: "You are stupid." When asked what emergency he was calling about, Singh spoke incoherently about immigration and corruption. He also said: "I put one dynamite to the immigration house." He knew this message to be false, Deputy Public Prosecutor Daphne Lim said.

  9. 5 Places Where Drinks Are So Cheap, It’s a ProblemBy Ryan Ong in Frugal Living | Dec 3, 2013 5 Comments Life in Singapore is stressful, so there’s many occasions when I need to get plastered, even on a tight budget (e.g. stressful deadlines, impossible clients, days ending in the letter “y”). If you’re the same, keep an eye out for the places on this list. The money you save might even cover treatments for your cirrhosis: BONUS: Cheapass Tip for MoneySmart ReadersI’ve mentioned this in another article, but I’ll explain it again here. There is a possible way to get free drinks if your friends get sloshed enough, and your moral compass is more broken than your liver. Invite a group of friends out to drink with you – the more the better. Try to make it at least six people. Once the venue is agreed upon, be sure to arrive about 40 minutes late. By then, most people would have ordered a few bottles, a whole beer tower, etc. You can probably leech off the drinks already ordered, without calling for any yourself. If everyone’s sloshed enough at the end of the night, chances are good that no one will notice. For other money saving tips, you can always stay tuned with us on Facebook. 1. Five Izakaya Five Izakaya is modeled after Japan’s 300 Yen bars, which are basically just alcohol dispensers with walls. The “five” in Five Izakaya refers to the price of the drinks – you know how everything in Daiso is $2? Same concept here. Virtually every drink in this bar is $5. There are no gimmicks and no happy hours. It’s Asahi, Shochu, Choya, and various types of wine all going at $5 in the bar – anytime you walk in. Even the snacks are $5, probably because you can’t handle a more complex bill by the time you’re done. One problem though (at the Collyer Quay Outlet, I can’t speak for the others) is the food. It’s wildly inconsistent, and on some days the chicken tastes like pure mouthfuls of salt. But on most days the food is passable (And frankly, complaining about the food in a $5 bar is like complaining about the music in an elevator). There are three outlets, as described below. Pros - $5 Drinks, no specific happy hour Cons - Food can be inconsistent. Where and When: 16 Collyer Quay, #01-05B / Tel. 6536 8955 / Open from 12pm – midnight on Mon. to Fri. Open from 6pm – midnight on Sat. Closed on Sun. and Public Holidays. 5 Changi Business Park Central 1, Changi City Point, #01-66/67 / 6604 8255 / Open daily from 12 pm to midnight 25 Cuppage Road, Cuppage Terrace / Tel. 6733 8097 / Opens daily from 5pm to midnight 2. Insomnia Bar & RestaurantLet me get this out of the way: I hate a lot of the clientele at Insomnia. Many of them are younger than me, which is depressing and therefore a personality flaw on their part (send rational retorts to [email protected]). My point is, the crowd can feel a bit youngish if you’re in the 35 to 40+ age range. The music and ambiance seem catered to the young-bloods too, so the dance floor and conversation may not be too attractive. That said, the booze is free flow. From 9pm to 11pm on Wednesdays, $20 will get you all-you-can-drink from the bar. And right up till 31st December 2013, you also get 40% off standard drinks via the CHIJMES promotion. Overall, if you want to drink on a Wednesday and you know you’ll be downing a lot more than $20 worth, come to this bar. Pros – All you can drink for $20. Until 31st December 2013, 40% off standard drinks. Cons - If you’re over 35, you’ll get the odd feeling that you just gatecrashed a 16 year old’s birthday party. Where and When: #01-21 CHIJMES, 30 Victoria Street / Tel. 6338 6883 / Open from 11 am to 4 am on Sun. to Tues. Open from 11am to 5 am from Wed. to Sat. 3. Tanuki RawThis place is as much about food as it is about drinks. And as the name implies, Tanuki Raw is about raw foods – in particular oysters. During Happy Hour (5pm to 8pm), this place serves up $10 Martinis. Every martini you buy lets you purchase up to a half dozen oysters at $2 each, and a plate of salmon sashimi at $5. So two martinis means you can buy 12 oysters and two sashimi plates, and three means you can buy 18 oysters and three sashimi plates, etc. (If you actually intend to down 18+ oysters with alcohol in one sitting, read this article first) This is one of my default hangouts, so trust me when I tell you (1) the drinks are insanely strong, (2) the Steak Tartare is amazing, and (3) Dennis is an awesome musician – I think he plays on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Pros - Extremely strong drinks at $10 a pop, cheap oysters, good live musician Cons - Not as affordable when it’s not happy hour, don’t get to pick the type of oysters Where and When: 181 Orchard Road, #02-03 Orchard Central / Tel. 6646 5949, does not take reservations / Open 11.30am to 10.30pm daily 4. Standing Sushi Bar This lovely arrangement isn’t going to matter after you get hammered. Standing Sushi Bar has two outlets in Singapore, each running different promotions. They’re also the parent company of Tanuki Raw. Do note that I’ve only visited the one at 8 Queen Street. The place at Queen Street comes close to Five Izakaya’s promotion: you can get $5 beers, wines, umeshu, etc. on certain days. This is paired with the chance to buy $3 sashimi plates. I’m told Standing Sushi Bar is related to Tanuki Raw, and their highly similar, cross-selling promotions also suggests it. The promotions are based on day of the week, as follows: Monday – $5 beer, wine, hot sake and umeshu, $2 sake, $3 Sashimi plate Tuesday - 50% off house pour and assorted foods Wednesday - 50% off house pour and assorted foods Thursday - Same as Monday A quick note: When it’s busy, the place sounds like a percussion section fighting a lion dance troupe. It’s noisy as hell is what I’m saying, so you won’t be drinking in peace – if that bothers you. At the Marina Bay Link Mall, happy hour is from 5pm to 8.45pm. You get $10 martinis, and $5 beers and sake. There’s also a range of $5 foods to pick from. Pros - Affordable drinks and dinner rolled into one Cons - At the Queen Street outlet, can get too noisy if you’re trying to conduct business or drown your sorrows. Where and When: 8 Queen Street, #01-03 Singapore Art Museum / Tel. 6333 1335 / Open daily from 12 pm to 2.30pm, and 6pm to 10pm. 8 A Marina Boulevard, B2-51 Marina Bay Link Mall / Tel. 6334 7038 / Open Mon. to Fri. from 11.30 am to 9pm, open on Sat. from 11.30am to 6 pm, closed on Sun. and public holidays 5. Working Title That’s not a typo in my header. Working Title is a cafe-bar on Arab Street, which adjoins – nay, is attached to – a hostel. The place has kind of a hipster vibe, but if you’re not allergic to that it’s a quiet place to talk and drink. The big star here isn’t the ambiance anyway, but the range of exotic booze at good prices. Chocolate beers, fruit beers, various unpronounceable craft or foreign beers, etc. line the racks at prices as low as $8. That’s great because (1) experimentation is always entertaining, and (2) it’s a fairly low price without anything being on promotion. You don’t have to accept bad house pours, or whatever the bartender squeezes out of his rag into your mug, just to get a good discount. Overall, Working Title is not the cheapest place on this list. But if you want affordable + different, duck in here for a taste. Pros – Exotic and unusual drinks, for low prices Cons - Food is not cheap, some of the clientele may listen to Skrillex Where and When: 48 Arab Street / Tel. 9734 4187 / Open from 9am to 10pm on Sun. to Thu. Open from 9am to midnight on Fri. and Sat.
  10. Anyone knows where to buy cheap price alcohol like Vodka, Whiskey or Gin? Not those price selling at supermarket or 7-11. Those wholesale price type. I need to buy a few bottles for an event. Thanks guys for sharing
  11. I accidentally forgotten to keep 2ltr of apple juice (non-preservative) in the fridge, it was left in room temperature for about a week. this morning i noticed and moved it to the fridge to chill it. Just now i opened it up an there's this fizz bubbling up in the liquid, and i smelled alcohol coming out from the brim. Looked like champagne.. So I tasted it, still normal a bit alcohol-ish, no sour nor bad after taste. Wow! Wifey told me: throw it! better loose money than get sick! Stubborn to yield, i googled and found this.. From Here Yea, Suaku me, it's a Cider. I bet this is great for BBQ refreshments or cooking itself. not a drinker though and sure hell not promoting drinking habit.
  12. Hello, Trying to find out where to buy. I wanted to use it for general purpose cleaning. Is rubbing alcohol the same as Hong Yew or medicated oil?
  13. Alcoholism is much more a social bane than smoking. Yet alcohol ads are everywhere and tobacco ads are banned... Just wondering what screwed logic we are blindly following. I'm not saying that we should promote smoking. Rather, I'm saying that we should also not promote drinking
  14. how long will alcohol last in our body ? eg : if we drink till 3-4am and drive to work early morning will we gana alcohol exceed?
  15. any saab95 (2002) owner has alcohol smell coming from the aircon? Is it normal? It has flooded my car with that smell. Getting very pungent. Changing air filter didn't help. Spraying deodoriser didn't help. Workshop not very sure why it happens - still under observation!!
