Do continue to wash your hands and wear a mask; Don't let your love of Swedish furniture make you forget the importance of social distancing

Siam Paragon, Gaysorn, Central Embassy and all your other favourite shopping centres are finally open. You can dine-in (some places), and the alcohol ban is lifted (sort of). Life is nearly back to normal, no? Well, not quite. There's still a lot on your part to be able to enjoy these luxuries. Here's the Tatler Thailand do's and dont's during this period of eased restrictions but restrictions nonetheless: 

Do's:

  • Do continue to wash your hands throughout the day, especially after any form of physical contact. 
  • Do continue to wear a mask when out in public. It's still en vogue. 
  • Do be fashionably late—to avoid peak hour crowds.
  • Do opt for cashless payments. Some retailers won't take your money otherwise!
  • Do be mentally prepared to go shopping. Safety checks will seem tedious and repetitive as you hop from store to store. There's also quite a line at Fendi, Gucci and Chanel, so our friends tell us.  

Dont's:

  • Don't let your love of (Swedish) furniture make you forget the importance of social distancing. 
  • Don't sit across or close to your date at restaurants (even if you're married and drove there together).
  • Don't go to valet parking. You'll have to learn to park yourself for now, sorry. 
  • Don't press buttons. People's or elevators'.
  • Don't order the wine... unless you're taking it home to drink. 
  • Don't try makeup at the makeup counter. Just eye it and buy it. You know your hue. 
  • Don't host a post-pandemic party yet! It's far from over.

And now the perfect song to remind you of social distancing:
