    Hong Kongers Must wear mask in Thailand

    BANGKOK, April 2 (Reuters) - Thailand, one of the most popular holiday destinations in Asia, said on Wednesday all tourists from countries hit hard by a deadly flu-like virus must wear masks at all times or face a six-month jail term and fine.

    Officials said tourists breaking the new rules could face a maximum of six months in jail, and/or a fine of up to 10,000 baht ($233.4).

    My job description does not involve turning into some Thai gangsters bitch ... sorry. Neither does it involve the Thai equivalent of Nurse Ratchet giving me a DRE (go figure this one out, specially those who mocked my RJ reference).

    I did go to the store and bought myself a mask thingy. Ah .. the joys of living in a place which now needs to supplement lost tourism dollars with SARS dollars.

    How do they distinguish between Shri who came in from HK , and Shri who came in from Switzerland?

    Do they brand you on the forehead in the flight? or at the Immigration counter?
