How I wish I am in Canada... we dont practice this in Malaysia: we work 24-7: working = no drinking.
Also, a large bottle of Heineken Beer cost almost USD 4/ MYR16, or USD 2 / MYR 8 in a normal can... kind of expensive here. I bought USD1.5 for a beer in Thailand...
This explains why we dont drink much here (majority were Muslims in my country): http://www.who.int/s...t/en/index.html
you guys work even harder than the Japanese? c'mon...
and alcohol is heavily taxed here and its sale is more or less controlled (special outlets, license requirements, etc) but those are not a deterrent in the end cos we like our alcohol
...and it's really understandable why you guys con't drink much or at all...
Since I'm not Muslim and that's the reason I am okay to drink in Malaysia...
First of all, I drink as many beer or red wine as I can, as long as is free flow (usually in wedding dinner). If someone were to knock me off in beer drinking, they should have prepare at least 3 towers.
p/s: My most daring drinking experience is drinking beer at a bus stop in front of a police station in Bangkok, Thailand. Nope, I didn't get drunk or create any trouble

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.
