Quiz: What are these people doing?

Quiz: What are these people doing?

To the untrained eye, it looks like cooking food. But if you have such a wide range of interests and are as observant as I am, you immediately spot some peculiarities. Being there in person makes it easier, so I will give some hints. 

The two brown bottles have no label like beer bottles do, and they do not contain beer. The color of the the liquid in the bowl behind the bottles is blue. There is furnace with a fan and glowing charcoal in the background.

  2. To the untrained eye it looks like they are cooking food. My eye is untrained but even I can see there is no food.
    What are they doing ? Making something to get themselves high I would imagine.
    You really do need to be a little less dumb at times.
    And as for taking pictures of them doing so, could well be a death warrant.

  7. They're cooking. This way is popular for Asian drinkers. They pour alcool/alcohol into food and burn it (xtremely popular for dried food like dried fish or squid). They did it for fast cooking and it helps to avoid kitchen crazy preparation.
