:head shot: Are they going to stop the beer ringpull prizes ? Cash in now before it goes. :)

Serious news:
The Ministry of Information has issued a directive to media outlets, including TV, radio and newspapers, to cease running advertisements for alcohol lucky draws, which it says is contributing to a rise in youth drinking.

The lucky draws, often offered by beer companies, entice consumers by offering them the chance to win motorbikes, televisions, free beer and other prizes when they crack open a can or bottle.

In the letter dated August 21 and delivered to the Khmer Times yesterday, Information Minister Khieu Kanharith said such promotions are leading to a rise in youth drinking, resulting in an increase in traffic accidents, violence, rapes and other bad activities.

β€œIn order to avoid future problems, the ministry is again suggesting all media stop promoting the beer lucky draws,” Mr Kanharith said in the letter.

I get plenty of free* beers from the tabs (Angkor) but in over a year have never got anything better. Meanwhile my neighbour got one with 40,000 riel within days of his arrival.

Has anyone done better?


*shop charges me 500 riel for my free beer.

They better reduce the price of beer to compensate us for this.

Cambodia beer cans: One case a month of free beer, and a motorbike helmet with CAMBODIA BEER marked discreetly in RED. What more could you want ?

This will work out just the way the Ministry of Information wants. If there are no freebies, what's the point of drinking?

But drinking keeps the masses calm. And winning free beer keeps them even more calm. Win-win. :D
