Answer: in their cars
In India, drinking at home is considered taboo. An average Indian man would normally choose to head outdoors for a drink. Hence, drinking in cars became the popular choice, adding on to the fact that the low lighting in cars provide the ambience for a quiet and peaceful drink.

If you were asked to go drinking in Vietnam, food will most likely accompany your drinking sessions. Vietnam has lots of bar snacks that goes well with beer such as, chicken wings, frog legs, snails, cockles, bo luc lac (vietnamese shaking beef - beef sauteed with cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, pepper, and soy sauce) and hột vịt lộn (balut - developing bird embryo that is boiled and eaten from the shell).

Answer: Snow Beer
Snow Beers have the appearance of a slushie and taste like an ice blended beer, and is a popular way to consume beers in Malaysia. Many crosses the country to experience the wonders of Snow Beer.

Based on tradition, Philippine people used to “alay sa demonyo” when they start their drinking sessions, which means to offer their first shot of drink to the spirits. However, the “tagay” style of drinking is now more commonly known, where a designated pourer will top up a shared glass, and the glass will be passed around the table. Once the glass reaches you, you are expected to drink it all, bottoms-up!
Based on our answer count, only 42% got this answer correctly. We hope the answer to this question did give you some insights to the way Philippine people drink nowadays. It would be lots of fun to share a glass with your buddies, and be prepared to get drunk, or not!
Answer: Bintang Beer
Data shows that the Bintang Beer, developed by the Indonesians themselves, is the highest selling beer in the country. The beer itself is styled as a pale lager, gold in colour with an ideal serving temperature of 7 degree celsius. And it tastes similar to Heineken, with the bottle mimicking Heineken’s bottle in some ways.

Singapore has been known for its strict laws, and here’s another one to add to the list. Under the Liquor Control (Supply and Consumption) Act, drinking is banned in all public places from 10:30pm to 7am. Retail shops are not allowed to sell takeaway alcohol during this period too. The act aims to minimise public disorder and disamenities arising from drinking in public.
Based on our answer count, 85% of you got this question correct. Looks like Singapore is really famous, or should we say infamous, for their strict rules and regulations!
When you drink in America, it is always customary to give a 20% tip or tip a dollar per drink.
