A Hong Kong blog that does a lot more than blog
In 2007, Hong Kong banned smoking in public. For many, including myself, this was welcomed with open lungs. Before 2007, non-smokers would get their daily does of poisonous second hand smoke chemical compounds(250+) in restaurants, bus stops and shopping malls – pretty much everywhere. Nowadays it’s a lot harder for non-smokers to get their fix; they need to be stuck behind the slow sidewalk burner, next to the pedestrian crossing puffer or (my personal favorite) in the cubical next to the public toilet blazers. The pictures in today’s blog, are for all the smokers out there who still think it’s OK to smoke in public.
Just for the record, I quit in 2008 and even then i hated second hand smoke because of growing up in a house of indoor smokers. Stopping was the best thing i could have ever done for my health and my family. What are your thoughts on smoking? Did you grow up in a smoke free house hold or did you get your fix from your parents?
