Limit on drinking islandwide


The Singapore Government has set in motion plans to impose a ban on boozing in public spaces and retail sales of alcohol island-wide between 10.30pm and 7am daily. Soon, memories of us bringing six-packs to the beach to enjoy with friends will soon be old, faded memories. Looks like I may have to use my whiskey decanter to hide my booze if and when I need to have a tipple outdoors. If the law is passed, drinking after 10.30pm can continue only at home, at approved events or at licensed establishments, such as bars, restaurants and coffee shops. Infringements are punishable with a fine of up to S$1,000 for a first-time offender, while jail of up to three months and a fine not exceeding S$2,000 can be imposed on repeat offenders. Oh well.
