Vice Governor Thanyawat Chanpinit presided over a meeting at Phuket Provincial Hall on Friday (July 19) to instruct various officials on preparations for commemorating the birthday of HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn. The auspicious day will be celebrated in Phuket and nationwide next Sunday (July 28).

V/Gov Thanyawat informed those in attendance that the Ministry of Interior is calling on households, workplaces and government offices to be decorated with images of HM The King, national flags, Royal Standards of the monarchy and yellow ribbons. Government officials are required to wear yellow shirts which is what they are already doing since Royal Coronation in May.

On July 28, a merit-making ceremony will be held at Phuket Provincial Hall, starting at 7.30am. There will also be a candle-lighting blessing ceremony and voluntary activities, including a free lunch for disadvantage children and elderly. Also, there will be a ceremony for government officials during which they will swear an oath to be good servants for the country and the King.

Fascinated,  it is clearly mentioned that no ban on alcohol sales has been announced SO FAR.  What not is can still come. Another opportunity of 'population control'.

And presumably no alcohol ban? Since it's not a religious holiday? And you've made no mention of it? Remember that in years gone by the police always tried to enforce the ban on the kings birthday.
