There is great than 0% chance that Tp4 may be sent to either Malaysia or China in the next 8 months.

The very same.

White collar work in these countries is basically, here you have to drink 100-400ml of alcohol every other day..

Can TP4 quit instead? Early retirement? New career as veggie spokesman and motivational speaker?
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

The world has become a weird place.

Assuming that's 100ml of 40% spirits that's not too bad, 400ml would be.  You'll be new in town so could you claim allergies or say alcohol makes you violent without being rude?

The drinking is just part of the job. It's a terrible system. There is no way around it. As it turns out most adults are too shy/ timid/ and stressed without alcohol.

Sounds crazy, do they supply a chauffeur to get you home too?

I'll have to remember to never go to Asia on business, alcohol = honesty and that's probably not a good thing when you're as critical as I am, would scare the clients away no doubt

I'm assigned a driver full time because I am not good enough to work their extremely tight city parking spaces.

Cars are the worst part, and you're never where you want to be, at home, on the computer, eating veggies.

I think that he is referring to actual alcohol, so multiple liter bottles of liquor per week.
“The mass of Trump companies is justifiably called Byzantine. It’s a deliberate labyrinth of connections, some of them intended to maximize Trump’s tax benefits — like the company that supposedly owns Trump’s planes and leases them to the other companies, all of which are just Trump, allowing for a double-dip on deductions. Other companies seem to exist for no purpose other than to make investigating Trump’s finances more complicated and more difficult to penetrate.”

Hmm... so TP could be a politely violent drunk? Like some kind of 1800s gentleman bareknuckle boxer?

Haha!  That's not quite what I meant...

If you say you'll get violent people are less likely to insist you drink even if it's usually rude to refuse.

I don't know much about China, though I won't be surprised if there are a lot of similarities, but I lived in Malaysia for 4 years. Can confirm, depending on which group you associate with, drinking can a large part of the work culture. Crazy expensive as well. A bottle of single malt cost around 80-100 USD from a restaurant or pub, maybe half that in a supermarket. But other than that, I loved those 4 years in that country.

Yea, if you drink on your own dime it's stupid expensive, because import is considered Cool, and Paying for irrational Premium is a status symbol power move. The larger corp I represent, we can contract with restaurants and clubs, that way we'd pay in bulk and could have slight micromanagement. For example I'd wave the hostess for fake knockoff liquor on the cheap clients, or if I presume the client isn't terribly aware. They came in indistinguisable boxes, but the trick is,  I would PRETEND to check its authenticity and berate the hostess for potentially scamming us, but she's in on it, and would go to the backroom and bring back the exact same thing, but then congratulate the team on how we're sharp customers.

This. I think its the concept of face. Its fascinating. I've never seen folks more in love with status symbols like Rolex watches (Submariner, but folks loved the Daytona), cars, LV and designer stuff & expensive single malt liquor. Money = Respect. That was when I let go off material stuff like that, but still kept a few close local friends. It's culturally totally different to where I live now, in Manila.
